Well, this was certainly some bad PR for Universal Studios.  A 55-year-old law enforcement veteran was stopped from entering the park for nearly an hour because of a t-shirt he wore that read “retired police officer.”

Vincent Champion says the experience left him confused and angry. He vows never to return to the theme park.  Champion once worked for the Ormond Beach Police Department.

Security asked Champion to remove the shirt before entering the park Nov. 1.  Universal officials said guests could have confused him for an actual police officer.

One guest offered his shirt to Champion but was told he couldn’t carry the other shirt into the park.
