FORSYTH — A teenage boy was terrified when a police officer aimed a loaded pistol at him in a McDonald’s drive-thru.
He was simply ordering food and never expected a cop to point a gun at his throat.
Shocking footage of the incident is now making rounds online, captured by a security camera inside of the restaurant.
The officer, who was also in the drive-thru and in line behind the boy, became “upset” because it was taking too long to get his food, according to reports.
He exited his vehicle and began threatening to shoot Ryan.
Ryan described what happened in his own report of the incident:
“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 minutes, 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.”
A spokesperson at the DeKalb County Police Department claims that the officer, who is a sergeant, has been charged with aggravated assault.
