I think he was getting impatient for his food

Who do you think is to blame: the cop for being another unprofessional reckless imbecile, or the undoubtedly shoddy service?

Sources familiar with the case, and the fast food worker's account of what happened, say two off-duty Denver police officers placed an order from their car in the early morning hours of May 21. But once at the drive through window, the employee said the men became agitated and angry at how long their food was taking. The men thought they were being ignored, according to contacts familiar with the worker's account. The male clerk then said one of the officer's flashed his police badge and pointed a pistol through the drive through window in a threatening manner, before driving off without paying.

Look, I know we all routinely get some insanely long waiting times, but – oh wait, it's a cop. Nevermind.

At least they probably won't get away scotch-clean this time:

A Denver police officer has been suspended after allegedly brandishing his gun at a McDonald's restaurant in Aurora after his order took too long to fill.

Aurora police confirmed the CBS4 investigation saying the incident occurred May 21 at the McDonald's at 18181 East Hampden Avenue.

A spokesperson for the Aurora Police Department said they plan to present the case -- now classified as a felony menacing incident -- to the Arapahoe County District Attorney's Office Thursday for possible filing of criminal charges.

Good. Perhaps a while in the courts, or behind bars for utter stupidity and recklessness with a firearm, will cool this hotshot's temper down a bit.
