FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — Last week, a detective for the DeKalb County Police Department allegedly pulled a gun on a drive-thru customer at McDonald’s, according to the Forsyth County Sheriff’s office.

On April 17, deputies arrested Scott Biumi, 48, of Cumming, and charged him with aggravated assault.

Biumi is a Sergeant for the DeKalb police department, said Courtney Spriggs, a spokeswoman for the sheriff's office.

The incident unfolded at 10:30 p.m. April 9, when Biumi was in the drive-thru line of McDonald’s, 660 Atlanta Road, and according to investigators became upset with the customer in front of him.

Biumi allegedly got out of his car, approached the victim using expletives and drew a gun. The incident was captured through the restaurant's surveillance.

Forsyth County Sheriff's deputies arrested Biumi at 11:50 a.m. on April 17.

“Our deputies worked diligently and safely to solve this case,” Forsyth County Sheriff Duane Piper said. “Dekalb County Police Chief Alexander and his staff were very professional and cooperative during our investigation into this matter, and we appreciate their assistance."

Deputies learned of Biumi's position with DeKalb Police during their investigation. The sergeant was driving an unmarked police car and wearing plain clothes with a badge on his belt, according to sheriff's office.

Biumi was taken to the Forsyth County Detention Center. Biumi’s bond was set at $22,000 and he is in the process of bonding out. His court date will be May 23.
