NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) -- A black man says his party of 25 was refused service at a North Charleston restaurant after a white customer complained. 

WCSC-TV reports (http://bit.ly/17OLeye ) Michael Brown said his party waited two hours at Wild Wing Cafe last month when a manager told them the customer felt threatened. Brown says a friend videotaped as he spoke to the manager, who then got upset and refused service. 

Brown didn't immediately get a response from the company's office, so he posted to Facebook that people should avoid the restaurant.  

Restaurant spokeswoman Debra Stokes later spoke with Brown and says he's a regular customer who didn't get the proper experience. Stokes offered and an apology and free meals, but Brown says it's not a situation where you just offer free food and everything's OK.
