Cop who pointed gun at McDonald's customer will lose certification

FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. -- A police officer who was waiting in the drive-thru line at a McDonald's restaurant in Forsyth County is accused of pulling a gun on the customer ahead of him because the officer was angry at having to wait for his food.

The off-duty officer is Detective Sgt. Scott Biumi, 48, of the DeKalb County Police Department. Biumi is charged with felony aggravated assault on the customer. 11Alive News was not able to reach him for comment Wednesday night.

However, we knocked on his door in Cumming on Thursday and Biumi came to the door only to tell us the name of his attorney.

We've now learned Scott Biumi will have his police certification suspended.

Reminded me of this news item, guy calls 911 from McDonalds

And gets arrested. Cop uses a gun at McDonalds and gets paid leave?


This Cop Belongs in Prison

If a civilian did this, he'd go to jail, so this cop belongs in jail too. It's even more of a travesty since he's violated the trust his local community placed in him.


He was arrested and booked into jail, and released on bond. He's been charged with felony aggravated assault. That's the way it would have happened to a civilian too. And this doesn't sound like they're trying to let him off:

"Terribly disappointing," Sheriff Piper said. "It's a betrayal of a trust to the public. We're expected to handle ourselves correctly in high-stress situations, and it's very disappointing that an officer would snap like this. It's a break in judgement that can't be excused."

If they somehow let him off without consequences and give him back his job, then that will be a travesty. They've got video, he was identified by the victim, etc., it looks pretty clear cut. But so far aren't they doing the right things?

Kid is lucky

he was not in a Crispy Creme drive up window. He would have been dead.

A cop commits a crime and he's placed on administrative leave`

With pay?

Seems like that's the case EVERY SINGLE DAMN TIME IT HAPPENS.

"I would tell him that I wasn't being a smart-ass to him."

The kid's probably still scared the guy's going to track him down. The guy doesn't need his certification suspended, he needs to be in JAIL.

A cop found guilty, should pay all damages

And be liable for financially for his crimes.

Free includes debt-free!

Absolutely Paul!

"Qualified and Absolute Immunities" needs to end. For Law enforcement and Judges alike. We have talked about this a length before.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.


Cop commits crime = cop gets paid vacation while the taxpayers pay for everything.

I agree

He belongs in jail
