    Fla. pizza deliveryman uses pie to fight gunman

    THE ASSOCIATED PRESS • December 13, 2008

    MIRAMAR — A South Florida pizza delivery man fought back with the only weapon he had when a customer pulled a gun on him.

    A large, steaming hot pepperoni pizza.

    Police say 40-year-old Pizza Hut delivery man Eric Lopez Devictoria threw the pie at the gunman Wednesday afternoon, then ran for safety. Police say at least one shot was fired as Devictoria fled, but he was uninjured.

    Three teenagers have been arrested and charged with armed robbery in the case.
    Wonder what size that pizza was chambered in?

    Seriously, this guy got lucky. At least he fought back.
    I'd rather bring a gun to a gunfight personally.

    Even odds that Pizza Hut fires him for offering resistance!

    Can't we just call the armed criminal a bad guy?
    Why a gun pulling "customer" who only wanted a steaming hot pizza from our favorite gun friendly place "The Hut" !!

    The Brady Bunch has already demanded...no more hard boxed pizza, soft paper bag wrappers only.

    What the he__? Pizza Hut will fire this guy for wasting $15 dollars of pizza!!

    So, did they identify the three youths because of the pepporini shaped burns on their faces? Or the fact that they had pizza on their breath?

    Man, how desperate do you have to be to steal a pizza? Dang.

    Can you imagine the stopping power and body damage that a real NY or Chicago deep dish pizza would produce?

    Don't bring a gun to a pizza fight ...
    The first rule of a gunfight: "Don't be there !"
    The second rule: "Bring enough gun"

    If the pizza was in a box, wouldn't pizza hut try and fire him for carrying a loaded concealed pepperoni pizza while on the clock???
    The first time you aren't armed and prepared may be the last time you wished you were.
