An Austin cop was met with a rude surprise after stopping for a slice of pizza.

Officer Nito Delgado-Eberhardt visited local pizzeria, Southside Flying Pizza, last Saturday. On his receipt, he discovered that an employee described him as a "pig a-- m-----------." He shared the receipt on Facebook, as KVUE-TV reporter Jenni Lee reshared on Twitter:

"Was hoping to get a quick slice for the road," Delgado-Eberhardt wrote on Facebook. "Instead, got a bad vibe from the cashier. What sealed the deal for me was seeing her taking a picture of the patrol car while flipping it off. Good times."

The same employee presumably wrote up the receipt:

"The receipt is proof after the fact that it was money well spent to learn about this place," the officer said. "We did NOT eat the food."

According to David Hatley, district manager of Southside Flying Pizza, the eatery has fired the employee. Hatley told FOX 7, "Obviously we're deeply appalled by the incident and that employee has been let go." In addition, Southside Flying Pizza has donated $1,000 to a police memorial fund.

"That's where we hang our hat is customer service and quality of food, but even more so with the police officers that work in our community," Hatley said.

Despite the hateful comment, Austin Police will continue to support the restaurant. Ken Casaday, president of the Austin Police Association, told FOX 7 that Southside Flying Pizza has fully addressed the issue. "This is one bad incident that I think they definitely deserve to be forgiven for," Casaday said. "Of all people that should know this is police officers."
