BUENA PARK, Ca. (KMOV.com) -- An off-duty police officer is under fire for pulling his gun on a customer he thought was stealing a pack of Mentos.

The incident was caught on a Buena Park, California convenience store’s surveillance camera, but the victim, Jose Arreola, isn't calling for the officer to be fired.

The Arreolas say the city would not tell them the name of the officer, but that they hope to figure out a settlement out of court.
