Cop Pulls Gun On Slowpoke Teen In McDonald’s Drive-Thru


Don’t you hate it when you have to wait an eternity in the drive-thru line at a fast food place?

Who among us hasn’t wished — at least once — to be able to speed things along by brandishing a pistol and telling the jerk at the front of the line, or maybe the window attendant, he needs to get things moving?

Allegedly, that’s exactly what off-duty Detective Sgt. Scott Biumi of the DeKalb County, Ga., Police Department did last week. Biumi, 48, reportedly got angry from the long wait at a McDonald’s drive-thru, got out of his vehicle and put his service pistol against the neck of Ryan Marsh, 18, who was idling his Ford truck at the window up ahead.

“He put his hand right here,” said Marsh (himself an off-duty employee at the McDonald’s in question), pointing to his shoulder and chest. “Then he pulled the gun and put it, pointed it at, like, my neck area” before Biumi hopped back in his Chevy Impala and drove off into the night.

Marsh told 11 Alive News afterward:

We were waiting on them to cook the food. And the cop — I didn’t know at first that he was a cop — pulled up behind us and waited about two minute; two to three minutes…And he got out and started yelling; yelling at us, “Stop holding up the drive-thru line” — this, that and the other. He walked back over to his car, got back in, and I said, “Sorry for the inconvenience, Sir.” And he goes, “Who has the loud mouth?” And I was, like, “I said that,” not being smart or anything. He’s like, “Well, you never know who you’re messing with.” And I was just like, “No, Sir, I don’t.” He goes, “Keep your mouth shut.” I was like, “I’m sorry.” He’s like, “Well, you don’t know who you’re messing with. And there’s some crazy people out there.” And that’s when he pulled the gun on me, and kept on yelling at me for about thirty more seconds. And then walked off.

Biumi, a 20-year cop, was arrested the next morning and charged with felony aggravated assault. He was placed on administrative leave, with pay, while the department investigated the case. He was out of jail on a $22,000 bond the same day.

With pay? All well and good, if the McDonald’s security camera hadn’t gotten the whole thing on tape:

Personal Liberty

Ben Bullard

Reconciling the concept of individual sovereignty with conscientious participation in the modern American political process is a continuing preoccupation for staff writer Ben Bullard. A former community newspaper writer, Bullard has closely observed the manner in which well-meaning small-town politicians and policy makers often accept, unthinkingly, their increasingly marginal role in shaping the quality of their own lives, as well as those of the people whom they serve. He argues that American public policy is plagued by inscrutable and corrupt motives on a national scale, a fundamental problem which individuals, families and communities must strive to solve. This, he argues, can be achieved only as Americans rediscover the principal role each citizen plays in enriching the welfare of our Republic.

    Should have fired this guy right away, taken his guns away, and all permits. If you don’t think that is right, then let a normal liscensed guncarrying citizen try this. But since liscensed gun carrying citizens abid by the law, this would probably never occur.

      You need to have the Union’s permission to put him on leave without pay. Fortunately for this man innocent until actually proven guilty in a court of law is applying here. Unlike how a normal citizen would have been treated.

        WE ARE ALL INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY. Does that stop the cops from throwing us into the slammer and confiscating our personal possessions until a trial clears us? NO it does not!

        That cop should have been treated just as WE are treated and given the definitive nature of the evidence AGAINST HIM had his weapons taken away pending investigation and trial if any.

        Another dammed double standard with We the People on the low end of things.

    Just let’s you know how bad the balance of power is. Politicians are the worst as they have gotten to the point where they consider themselves not only above the law, but the law itself.

  • wyatt48

    And the crazyness continues. This time the cops. Fire this crazy and keep him off the police force and do not allow him to have a gun permit. Follow the same laws as we have to when we carry. Or go to jail same as us.

    Everybody knows : that’s what the pushey-bumpers on cop cars are for.

    They work well if you’re tire of waiting at train crossings,too.

  • TexRancher

    I’ll bet that the most critical people on this are cops who obviously won’t like the image of them colored by the actions of this Barny Fife idiot. I hope they never give him his bullet back!

  • BrotherPatriot

    No one is above the law…including the President. Of course that’s not how things are going on at the moment…but we Patriots of the Constitution are trying to change all that. In my opinion..the officer should not have paid administrative leave due to his violation of the public trust. This is a slam dunk and he should be prosecuted accordingly. God Bless.

    • rb

      They have Union. Can’t suspend without pay without asking the Union for permission.

      • BrotherPatriot

        LoL…that make any sense at all to anyone? Sorry…but his shouldn’t be handled by the Union. This should be handled by the Law. He did it…there is nothing else to talk about. It’s abuse of power & should be treated as such. Again…prosecute accordingly.
        God Bless.

    On the positive side. Once the McDonald’s employees get through with the officer and the city they won’t have to work fast service McDonald’s jobs anymore.

  • Charlie

    Time to call in “”The Posse”””…

  • Jake Thomas

    More and more cops are behaving like this. It’s time for the good police officers to start policing their own.

    • michiganminuteman

      You got that right……….and I think we are going to need the support of good cops fairly soon!

  • Michael

    Just another thug with a badge and gun. Might be just a bit mentally disturbed, but he’s a cop and you know how stressful their jobs are……..

  • Steve

    As usual pigs are REWARDED for their crimes, WITH PAY AKA PAID VACATION !

    The closest thing to justice in this situation will be the pig losing his precious job as a member of the army for the political class who will protect him from the real justice he deserves; PRISON TIME. If this pig gets prison time won’t he lose his job by default ?

    Police are the problem in society for EVERY type of corruption. They don’t ENFORCE the law on their own, the judges, politicians, etc. And no, not until this pig gets PRISON TIME will justice be served ! Those that ENFORCE the “laws”, 60,000,000 + of them, should be held to the highest standard and harsher punishment for breaking what they enforce on others!

    FTP, and their enabler COPSUCKERS !

    That boy had every right to put a bullet between that cops eyes in self defense. It would have been a good start to clean our LEO’s agencies out with these mentally unstable idiots that get into such a position of power based on relaxed requirements and background checks and the inability of the people who are supposed to be doing their job of checking these people’s back grounds and credentials.
