A former Savannah, Ga. Firefighter of the Year is only facing misdemeanor charges after allegedly pointing a gun at a black couple outside an Applebee’s restaurant.

Capt. Barry R. “Ricky” Arnold Jr. pointed a gun at a black couple in an Applebee’s parking lot after shouting racial slurs, witnesses confirmed.

According to the police report, Arnold first began making racial comments about the waitress to his wife. When a black male patron asked him to calm down, Arnold responded by hurling racial slurs at him as well, then the  two men began fighting.

When the black man and his wife left the restaurant, Arnold followed them to the parking lot, then retrieved a gun from his car and pointed it at the couple.

Arnold was only charged with disorderly conduct, public drunkenness, and pointing a gun at another, according to the Savannah Morning News. All of the charges are misdemeanors.

A spokesman for the Savannah Fire and Emergency Services confirms that Arnold has been placed on administrative leave.

Rev. Leonard Small said at a press conference that Arnold should be fired.

“If this man is a firefighter working for the city of Savannah, with our taxpayers dollars and he is brandishing the ‘N-word,’ we want him off that job now,” he said.

    he will not saves ALL LIVES, yes he need to be FIRED!!! That’s a very wrong attitude to have that kinda job!

    I would rather pointing a gun be a misdemeanor then a 10 year mandatory felony like Marissa Alexander faced in Florida. I hope my people don’t go ignorantly marching around demanding an increase in penalties for brandishing firearms.  I can see the law change and a bunch of preachers and perhaps Breaking Brown readers up in arms because Marylou Sanders gets 10 years for pulling a gun on her abusive boyfriend.

    If he had shot them and claimed stand your ground he could have gotten away with it.

    Yeah and probably a metal of bravery and a undisclosed amount of money in a envelope. This some bs.
