An off-duty U.S. marshal reportedly whipped out a loaded gun and pointed it at the terrified cashier and customers at a Brooklyn McDonald's, the NYPD told the New York Post.
The off-duty marshal was reportedly intoxicated during the time of the incident at the fast-food restaurant in Bay Ridge around 1:20 a.m. Saturday, according to police.
The marshal reportedly began yelling at the cashier about the long wait for his food, police sources said. He then allegedly pulled out his loaded service weapon and pointed it at a cashier before wheeling around and training his gun on terrified customers, police say.
As workers frantically dialed 911, the marshal's order came up, and he paid for his food and fled, sources said. Responding officers arrested him shortly after he left the restaurant.
He faces charges, including menacing, harassment, and violating firearm license regulations.
