Denver cop accused of pulling gun at drive-thru

AURORA – A Denver police officer has been charged with felony menacing for allegedly brandishing his gun at a McDonald’s restaurant after getting tired of waiting for his food.

Twenty-nine-year-old Derrick Curtis Saunders also face charges of prohibited use of a weapon, reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct.

An employee at the Aurora restaurant told investigators that two Denver police officers were waiting for their food at the drive-through window May 21 when one grew impatient and pulled his gun.

No one was injured.

Denver police spokesman Sonny Jackson told The Denver Post that Saunders had been suspended with pay and would be put on unpaid leave once the department is formally notified of the charges.

There was no answer Monday at a phone number listed for Derrick Saunders.
