A Fair Park-area restaurant owner accused of beating a suspected thief last week faces a misdemeanor assault charge, police said.
Michael William Liebermann, 48, co-owner of the Pizza Lounge, is accused of beating Hermilo Aguilar, 61, with a pipe and forcing him to strip naked after he tried to pay his $17.80 tab with someone else's credit card Oct. 13.
"To get a person who has committed a crime and get them to where they're stripped naked is very demeaning to a person and to inflict injuries is inappropriate," said Deputy Chief Craig Miller, commander of the crimes against persons division.
Liebermann turned himself in Thursday night. He was taken to the Dallas County Jail early Friday and posted $10,000 bond within a few hours, according to jail records.
Reached by phone, Liebermann said he was advised by his attorneys not to comment on the case.

If he stripped the guy naked in the kitchen, I hope he at least made him wear a hairnet.
Let’s see if a jury agrees with the prosecutor. Afterall jury members like this business owner are not part of the legal systems like police, prosecutors and frequent defendants.
Theft by CC is okay of course.
The poor stealing bass turd.
I think the lesson is the Deputy Chief needs to be retired.
Is this why I cant find a decent pie in Texas?
“To get a person who has committed a crime and get them to where they’re stripped naked is very demeaning to a person and to inflict injuries is inappropriate,”
But it does get the point across rather effectively.
It certainly works in Singapore;)
Looking over the menu it is Liebermann who should be beaten, for bastardizing pizza!
Stick to brisket and barbacoa tacos washed down with cold beer. You’ll die before your time but at least you’ll die happy.
I love those! and Carnitas!
The place I get Barbacoa has truth in advertising...
They place the Cow skull right in top of the barbacoa!
I make one every Sunday to go with the back-to-back Stargate episodes.
Tomorrow's is hamburger-onion-jalapeno with dual cheeses.
Agreed. Turkey Sloppy Joes are a capital offense. All I’ve ever had are chain-restaurant pizzas so I have no standing in that matter.
I just get lazy.
I hate when people get cutesy tootsie with food.
Awesome! And authentic!
I will stick to a beef roast, potatoes, and carrots. Got to do my part to end the global warming caused by Texas long horns.
This is the best I have found in my 18 years in Texas.
It’s a difficult job, but some one has to do it!
Yes I am fortunate though my wife does the cooking for me. She’s from some big town of about 325.
