Man Pulled AK-47 At Little Caesar’s Because His Pizza Wasn’t Hot OR Ready
A man from Tennessee is accused of holding employees of a Little Caesar's at gunpoint after finding out his pizza wasn't hot and ready.
Officers were called to the store on Friday night around 9pm. Witnesses told police that the suspect, Charles Doty Jr. of Knoxville became angry after being told about the wait, then demanded free breadsticks.
According to KXAN, the incident report reads that he left the store and returned with an AK-47, demanding his pizza immediately.
A woman standing in the store who had already gotten her order handed Doty her pizza, which he took and ran from the scene before police arrived.
Surveillance video showed that the suspect also threatened an employee who was attempting to leave after his shift and kept him from doing so. That employee left the lobby and called 911 from a back room, according to KXAN.
63-year-old Charles Doty Jr. was charged with four counts of aggravated assault and one count of especially aggravated kidnapping.
Doty was taken into custody and jailed on a total bond of $90,000. He's set to appear in court on Monday.
