|Sergeant Scott Biumi|
(Scroll down for video) A teenager had the scare of his life when an off duty police sergeant pulled a gun on him for holding up the drive through line at McDonald's.
DeKalb County, Georgia Police sergeant Scott Biumi, 48, was arrested and charged with felony aggravated assault after allegedly pulling a gun on a customer at the drive-through line at McDonald’s.
The incident was captured by security cameras in the restaurant. It showed a man in a business suit pulling a gun and pointing it at a driver who was waiting at the drive through window. The driver, 18-year-old Ryan Mash, had no idea that the man was a police officer. According to Mash, the man accused him of "holding up the line". The sergeant screamed at the teenager while pointing a gun at him.
After the incident, Biumi drove away but not before the teenager got his licence plate number. Mash called police, and officers traced the the tag number and the vehicle description to DeKalb County police sergeant Biumi. They also reviewed Mcdonald’s surveillance camera where Biumi was identified by witnesses and arrested.
“I am surprised that a sergeant would snap like that over food. Officers are trained to deal with stressful situations,” Tony Rogers, 52, from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania told YourJewishNews.com after watching the surveillance video of the sergeant pulling his gun on the teenager.
Biumi is a 20 year veteran of the Police Department DeKalb County. Biumi has been placed on administrative leave with pay pending an investigation into the incident. Biumi was released from jail on bail of $22,000.
