A U.S. Marshal was arrested over the weekend after, cops say, he waved his firearm at several patrons and an employee inside of a McDonald’s in Bay Ridge.

According to a police source, the man – identified as 30-year-old Charles Brown – was inside the chain, located at 430 86th Street, at around 1:15 a.m. when he allegedly entered into a dispute with one of the employees.

Cops further stated that a “belligerent” and “irate” Brown then began to argue with a fellow patron, who allegedly told him to “relax and go outside.” On his way out, Brown is said to have removed a loaded black firearm from his waistband and began pointing it at customers and staff.

Brown – who later identified himself to be a U.S. Marshal – fled the scene towards Fifth Avenue and was picked up shortly after by police near 87th Street.

According to reports, prosecutors are charging Brown – who appeared in court later that Saturday and was released without bail – with menacing, a licensed firearm transgression and harassment. McDonald’s was also issued an order of protection requiring Brown to stay away from its 86th Street location.

Reports further claim that the argument stemmed from what Brown believed to be an excessive wait time.
