An off-duty cop was arrested in Flushing over the weekend after he took out his gun and pointed it at two waitresses in a bar, police have confirmed.

Hyun Kim, 25, who works out of the 115th Precinct in Jackson Heights, was arrested and charged with two counts of menacing on Saturday, Oct. 12 after he allegedly brandished his gun in a Flushing karaoke bar.

Kim was at the unnamed bar with Sgt. Jung Kim when a waitress noticed his holstered gun and reportedly asked him if he was part of a gang. Hyun Kim told the waitress that he was a police officer and took out his gun and aimed it at her, according to NBC New York.

The magazine then fell out of the gun and bullets scattered across the floor, prompting the waitress to report the incident to her manager.

The New York Post reported that when the waitress returned with her manager, Hyun Kim was pointing the gun at another waitress’ head.

Kim and the sergeant allegedly left the bar after an argument with the manager who then filed a report with the 109th Precinct in Flushing, the New York Post reported.

Both Kim and the sergeant were suspended without pay in light of the incident and Kim was formally charged with two counts of menacing on Saturday afternoon.

Kim was issued with a desk appearance ticket and will be in court on Oct. 28 for an arraignment hearing, according to the Queens District Attorney’s office.
