At some point we have all been there - waiting in line at a fast food restaurant.
On April 9, just before closing, 18-year old Ryan Mash and two of his high school buddies were in line at a McDonald's on Old Atlanta Road in Cumming.
"I'm just like, 'I don't want to die. I'm sorry sir,'" Mash said he told a man who pulled a gun on him.
Ryan Mash said he found out from Forsyth County Sheriff's office that man was DeKalb County Detective Sgt. Scott Biumi.
"He goes, 'Do you know who I am?' I was like, 'No!' He goes, 'You don't want to mess with me,' and that's when he put his hand on my shoulder and pulled the gun on me," said Ryan Mash.
The incident was caught on camera. Ryan Mash said he and his friends saw a badge, but at the time they didn't know Biumi was a police officer. They said Biumi was mad because he had to wait in line for his food.
Kim Mash, Ryan's mother, was home in bed when she found out what happened.
"I was heartbroken and filled with rage, to say the least, with this person," said Kim Mash.
Kim Mash said she could not believe a police officer is accused of assaulting her son for no apparent reason.
"What upsets me the most is that this man is out there to serve and protect - for him to have to bully an 18-year-old high school student, it's unbelievable," said Kim Mash.
CBS Atlanta went to Biumi's house to ask him about the allegations. Our news crew saw him through the front door laying on the couch. He waved them off, but his wife came to the door.
She would not talk about the incident but she did tell us the name of their attorney.
Biumi, who has been with the department for 30 years, will be inside a Forsyth County courtroom on May 23 for his arraignment.
His attorney, Larry Deland, said his office is still investigating the allegations.
Biumi is on administrative leave with pay.
