Brian Studdard says he got the shirt when he participated in a 5-mile walk to raise breast cancer awareness. He says he has a friend who died of the disease.

But when he arrived at the restaurant, Nikki's West, to celebrate his father's 99th birthday Saturday, he was told the shirt was inappropriate.

WBRC-TV reports ( ) restaurant management offered him another shirt, but he said he didn't feel comfortable wearing someone else's clothing. Studdard was asked to leave and police confirmed that they were called to the restaurant.

WBRC says the restaurant owner declined comment.
