A Baldwin man allegedly flashed a handgun during an argument with his 17-year-old daughter at a fast food eatery on Sunday night, Nassau County police said.
David W. Randall, 45, was arguing the girl outside Popeye’s chicken restaurant on Fulton Avenue in Hempstead when her mother came out to break it up at 10:25 p.m., police said.
“I could have shot her,” he allegedly told the 39-year-old mother and displayed a silver handgun, according to police.
Randall then fled southbound on Meadowbrook Road. A Hempstead village police officer allegedly saw him throwing the gun into a rear yard on Front Street.
A loaded Smith & Wesson .40 caliber handgun was recovered at the scene, police said. No injuries were reported.
Randall was charged with criminal possession of a weapon and menacing.
He will be arraigned Monday at First District Court in Hempstead.
