Police: Harrisburg Teacher Pulled Gun in Drive-Thru

HARRISBURG, Ill. (AP) - A southern Illinois high school Spanish teacher is accused of pulling a gun on a woman in a McDonald's drive-thru lane.

WSIL-TV reports 61-year-old Larry Luna of Harrisburg was arrested Tuesday on two counts of aggravated assault with a weapon.

Harrisburg police say Luna was in his car in line outside a McDonald's when he began yelling at the woman placing an order in the vehicle in front of him.  Police say Luna brandished a gun when the woman stepped from her car.  

Harrisburg schools superintendent Dennis Smith says administrators are waiting for the court case to play out.

Luna is free on bond. Online court records don't show whether he has an attorney. A message left Wednesday at Luna's home wasn't returned.
