Impatient Man used AK-47 to Expedite Pizza Order

A Tennessee man who reportedly pulled out an AK-47 at a pizza restaurant when his order took longer to prepare than he expected has taken a plea bargain for the charges against him.

On the evening of September 5, 2021, a 63-year-old man visited a Little Caesars restaurant in Knoxville, Tennessee. When he tried to get his order, he was told it would be about 10 minutes until his pizza was ready.

According to reports, the man became angry and began to argue with the workers. He wanted them to give him a free Crazy Bread to compensate for the additional time he would have to wait.

It was reported that he walked outside, and moments later, he returned to the establishment with an AK-47. One of the employees tried to leave, but the man refused to allow it. He was also accused of pointing it at an employee and demanding his order. It was the girl’s first day working at the establishment, and she reported being very scared during the incident.

A patron tried to de-escalate the situation by offering him her pizza order, and another employee ran to the back of the store and notified the authorities. The man fled from the restaurant.

Officers from the Knoxville Police Department went to the location, and they took statements from the people who were there when the incident occurred.

The suspect was caught shortly after the authorities got involved, and he was booked into the county jail for suspicion of aggravated kidnapping, and aggravated assault.

Last month, the suspect took a plea deal and agreed to plead guilty to four felony counts of aggravated assault.
