[Excerpts] A jealous off-duty city cop burst past the security booth of a Long Island college Friday and confronted his ex-girlfriend and her new beau at gunpoint, police said. "I am a cop. Don't f--- with me. I'll shoot you," Officer Fahad Chaudhry, 25, sneered as he aimed his fully loaded Glock 19 service weapon at his rival... Chaudhry, who has been on the NYPD for three years, flew into a rage around 3:30 a.m. Friday after he spotted his 21-year-old ex, a Hofstra student, at a Manhattan nightclub with another man... The officer allegedly confronted the 23-year-old man, got into a shoving match with him in the club, and then followed the couple and their friends as they drove to Long Island... The two men recklessly swerved through traffic... Police said Chaudhry blew past a security guard in a booth at Hofstra's Uniondale campus. He approached the couple as they exited the man's Nissan... Chaudhry, 25, was charged with second-degree menacing, a misdemeanor, and released on his own recognizance after arraignment Friday. A Nassau judge required him to surrender his weapon and granted orders of protection barring him from going near his ex and her new friend. NYPD officials said that Chaudhry will be suspended.
