Police: Man threw cold pizza at workers

Aug. 10, 2011 at 4:00 AM

BROOKFIELD, Wis., Aug. 10 (UPI) -- Police in Wisconsin said a man was cited for disorderly conduct after allegedly throwing pizza and breadsticks at pizzeria employees because his food was cold.

Brookfield police said the 26-year-old New Berlin man placed an order online July 31 and called the store about an hour later to explain he had accidentally ordered carry-out instead of delivery, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported Tuesday.

Police said the pizza was delivered and the man called the eatery again to complain about his food being cold. Investigators said he then drove to the store and threw his food at Toppers employees while using profanities directed at the workers.

Officers said the man admitted to throwing the food and told police he "made a mistake and didn't want to hurt anybody."
