A US Policeman has been charged with felony menacing for allegedly brandishing his gun at a McDonald's restaurant after getting tired of waiting for his food.
Derrick Curtis, 29, also faces charges of prohibited use of a weapon, reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct.

No one was injured.
Denver police spokesman Sonny Jackson told The Denver Post that Saunders had been suspended with pay andwould be put on unpaid leave once the department is formally notified of the charges.

Orgy outrageAyia Napa in Cyprus is up in arms, it seems that tourists are indulging in “wild sex orgies” while out cruising on local ferries, Photographs documenting the sexual escapades of groups of young tourists to the island's popular resort of Ayia Napa were printed in the Norwegian press, following similar claims involving British and Scandinavian holidaymakers in 2006.
Once a sleepy fishing village, Ayia Napa is popular with families for its pristine beaches but since 2000 has gained a reputation as a clubber's paradise, attracting hoards of young partygoers.
Giorgos Economou, a local police spokesman, told Reuters that similar stories about such cruises surfaced every year in the foreign press.
"The boats are checked every day by the port police and no evidence has been found as yet to suggest such activities are going on."
"But we wouldn't be able stop them when they're in the middle of the open seas doing their business," Economou said.
Story of my life, wrong place………..
What a load of BullsThe Bontekoe brothers of Deerfield Township Mich, have managed to breed two dairy steers with a combined weight of more than 3,300 pounds, the Livingston County Daily Press & Argus of Howell reported in an article published Friday.
Nester, a dairy steer raised by Jack, 16, tipped the scales at 2,157 pounds. That's far above the typical weight of 1,600 pounds.
"I'm eye-level with his back," Jack said. "He was a large calf when me and my dad pulled him."
A midget Holstein named Midge was 10-year-old Cal's creature, weighing in at 1,177 pounds.
The brothers, whose family owns a dairy farm with 300 cattle, entered the steers in the Fowlerville Family Fair through a 4-H club, hoping to take home grand champion and reserve awards for livestock.
They didn't win - Jack said the judge called his steer "too big" and Midge was deemed "too beefy-looking."
"I just like having him," Cal said of Midge. "It's really a good feeling."
And it wasn't a total loss. Nester could be sold for slaughter at $1 a pound, netting Jack more than $2,000.
"It's tough to see them leave, but you get used to it," he said.
Not that attached to them then.
