CUMMING, Ga. — An ex-DeKalb County police sergeant has been sentenced to 10-years of probation for pulling a gun during a dispute at a drive-thru window.

The Forsyth News reports 48-year-old Scott Biumi pleaded guilty to two counts of aggravated assault in the April 9 incident.

Surveillance footage from inside a suburban Atlanta McDonald’s showed Biumi pointing a gun through another driver’s window as he leaned into it during the argument.

Authorities have said Biumi was upset the driver ahead of him was taking too long at the window.

As part of a plea agreement, Biumi — a 26-year law enforcement veteran — is barred from owning a firearm or working in law enforcement.

Biumi must also do 120 hours of community service during his first year of probation.

Amazed...

This is just bizarre. To have progressed that high through the ranks, you'd think that this kind of behavior would've been seen before. Maybe it had, and that's why he is an "ex DeKalb Police sergeant"...

This doesn't surprise me

People want their FAST food now! I have actually watched people getting upset with someone they believe cut them off in the double lane drive thru at Mcdonalds. People might not know that your car is photographed when you order. Don't worry, you will get the food you ordered.

Sounds like one or two synapses were

either failing to fire, or just plain short circuited.

These nuts are all around us and we never know when one of then will go off the deep end.

I guess....

I guess when he was on the force, it was, do what I say, not what I do.

Nothing Misleading at All!

He was an ex-cop and he pulled a gun at a drive through. Pretty straight forward and to the point. Also very typical of our cops now days. Gung ho thugs with a goon mentality.

Temporary Insanity!

Is it really his fault? Think a minute, this guy was probably hungry and no body seemed to care! You know you can only take so much when your Big Mac is sitting there while someone else can't make up their mind. All kidding aside, this guy lost the ability to reason or have patience and went for his gun...NOT Good! It is probably best he doesn't have accessibility to a gun any longer.

.
That's just plain wrong. How about some statistics to back up that wildly inaccurate statement.

Or maybe just a simple "In my opinion." would suffice.

One nut does not a pattern establish!

You can't ask for statistics or PROOF, from a radical bigot!!! Their OPINION, is all the proof they need, in THEIR mind!! If they say it, it's fact!!

There are approximately 1 million law enforcement officers in this Country. You show me ANY profession, with that many people that has ZERO corruption, and I will work the rest of my life and give WILLIE LEE the paycheck!!

Most experts/researchers have said corruption in law enforcement agencies is less than 2% of it's total ranks; which is far less than most professions.

The police force of the United States, isn't even CLOSE to making the list of the most corrupt forces in the world!!

Maybe we should adopt Mexico or Haiti's police procedures? Any suggestions Willie?

People like Willie, are so misinformed (trying to be polite); it's actually quite sad!! I can't imagine what it's like to go through life with such hate and distrust!!

I know exactly how he felt,

I know exactly how he felt, though my choice would be to drive off. I just love idiots who pull up to a fast drive through and can't make up their feeble minds. This, usually after already waiting behind other cars and looking at the preview menu board

And then you have the inconsiderate jerks ordering for the office, one order at the time.

If you are that dim, or have that much to order, GO INSIDE!

Misleading headline

"He was an ex-cop and he pulled a gun at a drive through. Pretty straight forward and to the point. Also very typical of our cops now days. Gung ho thugs with a goon mentality."

Except this happened April 9 and was reported about then. It happened 8 months ago. The ex-cop was convicted and sentenced in December. The headline makes it appear if this incident occurred again. So, yeah, the headline is misleading. Responsible journalism, not sensationalism journalism, would have indicated, "Ex-cop who pulled a gun at fast-food drive-thru is sentenced"
