david_chongA Los Angeles Police Department officer who threatened a restaurant patron with a knife and semiautomatic handgun was sentenced today to state prison, authorities said.

David Woon Chong, 39, was sentenced to four years and four months for his role in a March 2008 incident at the restaurant on the Redondo Beach Pier, the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office said.

Chong threatened a restaurant patron after getting into an argument with two men. Chong kicked some food out of the man’s hand, then pulled out a .45-caliber Glock handgun and pointed it at the man’s head, the district attorney said.

Chong left the restaurant and was pulled over by Redondo Beach police. He allegedly had a 0.11 blood alcohol level at the time of his arrest, according to the district attorney.

The district attorney said Chong was sentenced after pleading no contest to one count of making a criminal threat and admitting to the gun use allegation.

    This shows the complete disregard for the appropriate credentials that police institutions employ in their hiring process. I find it difficult to adhere to and obey someone with such power and prestige, with so little education.
