▪ An Austin pizza shop worker wrote an obscene message on a police officer’s bill. Officer Nito Delgado- Eberhardt ordered a slice at Southside Flying Pizza, but got a “bad vibe” from the cashier and saw that she’d written “pig-a-- motherf-----” on his check. The cop posted a photo of the bill on Facebook, prompting the shop owner to fire the employee. “We did NOT eat the food,” Delgado- Eberhardt said.
