SourceA DeKalb County police detective is accused of pointing his service weapon at others in a McDonald’s drive-thru line. The alleged incident happened at 10:30 p.m. April 9 at a McDonald’s on Old Atlanta Road. The sergeant, identified as Scott Biumi, a 48-year-old resident of Cumming, was arrested in Forsyth County.

Forsyth County Sheriff’s Major Rick Doyle told Channel 2’s Jeff Dore that the detective became impatient with other men in the line, left his car and pointed his weapon. Doyle said the sergeant confronted the men using expletives. Forsyth County Sheriff’s Duane Piper said Biumi lunged his head, gun and shoulders into a pickup truck to threaten the driver.  Doyle said the incident was captured on security cameras.

Everyone reading this probably expects me to write some retort to this story saying how this guy was totally in the right for pointing his gun at people and it sucks to wait in a drive-thru and blah blah blah. I’m not gonna do that. It’s fucked up to point a gun at someone because you’re impatient, plain and simple. Let’s make that clear. This is nobody’s fault but the Cop’s.

But that being said, there is no greater universal pet peeve than someone taking forever in a Drive-thru. If you’re taking your sweet time chit-chatting and digging through your car for money to pay for your meal, this is the type of behavior you’re inviting. Some people might wait patiently, some people might honk at you, and some people might pull out a loaded service weapon and threaten to blow your head off. It’s a roll of the dice. It’s like going to the hood to buy weed from some guy your cousin knows through a mutual friend. You might get some great bud that gets you high as fuck, or you might get something laced with heroin that sends you to the hospital and involuntarily turns you into a junky. Bottom line is if you never put yourself in that position, nothing bad will happen.
