PALM COAST, Fla. (AP) - Flagler County authorities say a
restaurant owner pistol-whipped and beat a customer who complained
that his takeout order was incorrect.
Joseph Milano, the owner of Goomba's Pizzeria, has been charged
with aggravated assault and battery with a deadly weapon and
released on bail.
According to a police report, security footage from the pizzeria
shows that Milano struck Richard Phinney with a gun. He then jumped
over a counter and started to assault Phinney and his roommate.
Phinney was at the pizzeria to collect a refund for a calzone,
which he said was prepared incorrectly. He was taken to a hospital
after the incident with a bloodied head.
