Police Sergeant Accused Of Pulling Gun On McDonald’s Customer In Drive-Thru

CUMMING, Ga. (AP) — A metro Atlanta police sergeant accused of pulling a gun on a customer in a McDonalds drive-thru as been arrested.

Forsyth County sheriff’s spokesman Courtney Spriggs Wednesday said DeKalb County police Sgt. Scott Biumi has been charged with aggravated assault after authorities say he pointed a gun at a man during an argument on April 9.

Sheriff’s officials say surveillance footage from inside the restaurant shows the 48-year-old sergeant step between the man’s car and the drive-thru window. Authorities say he pointed the weapon into the car as he leaned into the driver’s side window.

Spriggs says Biumi, who lives in Cumming, was booked into the Forsyth County jail on $22,000 bond.

It is unclear if he has an attorney. Spriggs says a court date is scheduled for May 23.
