A 26-year-old man has been charged after police say he fired shots at a pizza delivery guy, after the man claimed the pizza he ordered was too small.
Officers were called around 11:31 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 21 to a residence on the 2100 block of Russell Avenue North. The victim, a 45-year-old man, said he was delivering a pizza to the residence when the customer began arguing with him.
The customer, identified as Demetrius Patterson, of Chicago, IL, said the size of the pizza was too small and demanded the delivery guy give him both of the pizzas he had in his vehicle.
The victim told police he didnt want to argue, so he began to leave.
The delivery guy brought the pizza back to his car, but as he was walking, he said Patterson came out of the home and started firing shots at him.
The pizza delivery guy said he was able to flee in his car and was not injured. He then called police.
Police located Patterson in the apartment of his girlfriend and placed him under arrest. They also located shell casings and a handgun in the apartment.
Patterson was booked into Hennepin County Jail. He has been charged with second-degree assault.
This is obviously not a true story. Guns are illegal in Chicago. /sarc
Poor guy probably had a long, hard day at work and was mildly agitated due to being hungry. I say the shooting is justified. /s
Where I live, many pizza places no longer deliver because of jerks like this one. It’s just too dangerous.
Sounds like a Perpbalony pizza to me.
I was a pizza delivery dude back in jr college. Delivered to gang meetings, swinger parties and the dude who answered was naked, frat parties, etc. People don’t realize that the phone guy who answers for orders has a map of neighborhoods NOT to take orders from aka black neighborhoods.
Two possibilities: 1. Some people like drama. 2. (more likely) It was the only place that delivers to where he lives (Or maybe the others were terrible)

thank Heaven BHuseeinO is “giving” us a brand new, redundant multi-Billion dinero consumer protection buraucrappy stuffed full of his campaign supporters to protect us against dangerous undersized pizzas! Soon, this will never happen again....they’ll write up a 1,069 page new Regulation To Assure Piszas Fit Your Appetite and All Will Then Be Well Again In America!
Well, I was thinking of things that could accidentally happen to the pizza the next time the delivery man gets to deliver to his “annoying” friend.
Second degree assault?!?
Oh, one of Holder’s People. Never mind; plea bargain it to Disorderly Conduct, time served; NEXT!
But instead of Nehemiah Scudder, we get Barack Hussein Obama.
Chicago now starting to export its scum to other cities?
How do Amish order pizza without a telephone?
I don’t blame the guy...It’s not the price that is overwhelming, it the size...
First time I bought a ‘new’, pricier can of 5 oz. Tuna instead of the standard 6 oz., I was wishing I was carrying a gun...Now you gotta buy two cans to make a sandwich...
Even worse is the Amish pizza delivery business - guaranteed in 3 days or it's free...
One of our pizza shops tried to refuse delivery to certain neighbors but was called out as racist. So no more deliveries anywhere. Some still deliver, but no longer for free. They blame high fuel costs, but I think it is also because the danger increased their insurance costs.
