My brother-in-law (the former cheerleader & current advocate for more Bring It On movies)
sent me this, taken from a Florida newspaper. This guy turns “mangia!” into an order. I thought it was hysterical! (Um, in an assault & battery kind of way…)
A Florida man got a side of assault with his calzone when he was
pistol-whipped by a pizzeria owner after complaining about his order.
Richard Finney and his roommate were having a cookout at their Palm Coast
home on Friday night but the roommate’s 11-year-old daughter didn’t like what
was on the menu, the News-Journal reported, So the pair ordered her a calzone
from Goomba’s Pizzeria with no sauce and no feta cheese.
But when they discovered that the calzone had both, they went back to the pizzeria to complain, and that’s when it got ugly.
According to a police report, security footage from the pizzeria shows Joseph Milano, the owner of the restaurant, striking Phinney with a gun. He then jumped over a counter and started to assault Phinney and the roommate.
Milano, 40, was charged with aggravated assault and battery with a deadly weapon and released on bail.
Phinney was taken to a local hospital after the incident with a bloodied
head. “I don’t even want to go out to a fast food place now because
I don’t know what to expect,” Phinney told the Daytona Beach News-Journal.

I don’t pistol-whip my kids if they complain about dinner. However, I do make them eat it at gunpoint.
