Police arrested Sadaat Johnson, 27, in Midvale, a city in Salt Lake County, Monday after he allegedly instructed his four-year old son to shoot at officers.
The incident began at a local McDonald’s after Johnson allegedly pulled a gun on McDonald’s workers for messing up his order.
According to NBC:
“Police said employees asked the man to pull over to the front of the store while they corrected the order. During this time, they also put in a call to police.
When officers arrived on the scene, they issued several verbal commands ordering the man to exit the vehicle, but he did not cooperate, police said.
Officers then opened the vehicle’s door and pulled the man from the car, they said.
While taking the father into custody, an officer turned back toward the vehicle and saw a gun pointing out from the rear window, the department said. After alerting other law enforcement, the officer swiped the gun to the side as a round was fired from the weapon.
According to police, the weapon was fired by a 4-year-old child sitting in the back seat of the car with a 3-year-old sibling.”
