A former “Officer for the Month” in central Florida is facing felony charges after allegedly breaking into his ex-girlfriend’s apartment and strangling her. 

According to the Gainesville Police Department, Officer Christopher Bivins unexpectedly met his 25-year-old ex-girlfriend on Friday, October 27 at Simons, a nightclub in Gainesville, Florida, while off duty.

Authorities say that the former couple share a child together.

According to an arrest affidavit, obtained by FOX 35 Orlando, the victim received a text from him, saying he was also at the club. Bivins reportedly paid for a section of the club for her and her friends and had a “pleasant evening.” 

The Gainesville Police Department did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital’s request for comment.
