You have to break a few eggs to make an omelet, but one chef decided he would crack a few skulls if he had to make one more dish of mozzarella Caprese.
Chef Mark DeCraepeo was arrested Wednesday night after he pulled a gun on two waitresses at his restaurant because he was tired of seeing orders for the appetizer, according to the Sun-Sentinel.
"If you hang one more f---- ticket for mozzarella Caprese, I swear to God I'll shoot you in the forehead," witnesses at Pizza Time said he shouted.
Usually, if you are getting a lot of orders for a dish, thatís a compliment to the chef. Not to DeCraepeo.
To make sure his threat was heeded, the chef and manager slammed his pistol on the counter.
"Now you see I'm f----- serious, I'll put a bullet right in your forehead," he shouted, the police report said.
The waitresses later filed a complaint with police and now the angry chef is in jail facing aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charges.
