Denver Cop Pulls Gun on Area McDonald's When Food Takes Too Long

I'll admit, McDonald's is not always very speedy with their food. Sometimes you have to wait for a few minutes before your order is finally done.

Still, that's no reason to pull a gun on the people inside. Especially when you're a police officer

Denver police officer Derrick Curtis Saunders has been charged with "felony menacing" for pulling his gun at an Aurora, Colorado McDonald's while waiting for his food.

According to a story in the Denver Post, Saunders and another off-duty police officer were waiting at the drive-through window back in May, when Saunders got tired of waiting and thought that a show of force would somehow make the microwaves work faster.

Saunders has been charged with felony menacing and weapons charges, as well as prohibited use of a weapon, reckless endangerment, disorderly conduct and trying to order breakfast items after 11:00 am.

There is no truth to the rumor that Saunders was actually trying to apprehend Hamburglar.

Saunders needs to make sure he doesn't burn any bridges with McDonald's, since that may be his only career option left open to him when this is all over.

    Maybe that wasn't it at all. Maybe the food just wasn't up to his "caliber."

  4. Perhaps he was just sending a message to the cashier to "get the lead out."

  5. Q. What do you get when a McDonald's cashier asks a Denver cop, "May I help you?"

    A. A loaded question!

  6. A late thought on this subject well after the fact:

    "Now that's what I call a Big Mac Attack!"
