I heard story on local radio station.The pizza guy needs a raise.As far as the customer,hope he remains in JAIL that's where he belong.His bail needs to be set for 1,000,000,000.00. Hope the pizza man keeps his head high.There is a place called hell for people who act in this manner!!!!!!!!!! David Strickland Atlanta Georgia

I also read in this article how the wife states "he is such a good husband and father, he doesn't deserve this!" That is hilarious!! I know everyone can lose their temper, but come on, did he really need to punch a kid in the eye hard enough to fracture his orbit? Hope he enjoys his stay at Kane County jail!

Hearing this story makes my blood boil. Because I too make deliveries. after 10 years trying to give a smile when the tip = 0. Recently, I too started to walk away without a smile or thank you if no tip is shown. The company thanks him. But me with my less then minimum wage and support for my car and expensive gas, why should I? If any dares throw a punch at me he won't have any teeth to chew pizza anymore.

My Husband is a Driver part time at a local pizza place, he brought the artical into his work to show his boss and the boss told everyone there not to take any orders from anyone with that last name!! The guy that did that is obviously dangerous to be around. I mean come on a 16 year old, what example did he set for his kids! WHAT A LOW LIFE LOSER!!!

We order from a family owned pizza joint in our town and always tip the driver well. We've had no problems with our pizza orders or the delivery drivers.

Our typical order is around 15 bucks and I usually pay with a 20 and ask for no change in return. However, tonight I used a 15% off coupon and used the extra change to pay the driver's tip by not asking for change from the 20 I gave him.

I figure by the time I start a car and drive it over to the place to pick up the pizza, my time and tire wear is worth more than the 5 bucks I gave the driver.

It's funny the awful wife said her husband is a good man because he has a job and a family, as if the pizza deliver man's job is not good enough to qualify him to be respected.

the pizza driver is my brother in law. number one he would never do anything to anyone to make something like this happen. the guy who did this is nothing but a low life thug. his wife is trash as well she called in the pizza place trying to get the driver fired to cover her mans butt. saying that jon was talking trash. this is the dumbest thing i have ever herd. people that know jon know hes not like that at all. the guy not only hit him but robbed him as well. this guy will do time and he deserves every second of it.

Yea if he was such a stand up guy than he wouldn't have been arrested and charged. I can't imagine what the pizza guy could have done to deserve to be robbed and physically assaulted.

He probably delivered a cold pizza with the wrong ingredients. It happens all the time. Most people just don't do anything about it.

This is much ado about nothing in the grand scheme of things.
