With a belly full of pizza, Lauderhill Police Officer Kristopher John Bieger, 30, was taken into custody on charges of premeditated attempted murder after he shot 10 rounds at another officer who just so happened to be his ex-girlfriend. But, hey, at least Bieger managed to get two more slices of his favorite pizza before facing a lifetime in jail.
The officer found his ex-girlfriend, Brittny Skinner, 31, also a cop, sitting in her patrol car outside of a Denny's in Davie, according to The Sun-Sentinel.
She was working an off-duty security job. He shot 10 rounds into her car, and one bullet hit her in the protective vest. Fortunately, she was not seriously injured.
After the incident, Bieger fled to Donato's Ristorante where he calmly walked in at about 9 p.m. and ordered two pieces of pizza. After ordering the employees of the restaurant to lock their doors and hide in the back, police surrounded the shopping center and arrested Bieger.
He's being held with no bond, and has been suspended without pay.
