Not hot and ready: Tennessee man pulls AK-47 at Little Caesars after hearing pizza would be 10 mins

A Knoxville, Tennessee man is in custody after allegedly threatening Little Caesars employees with an AK-47 after he was told his pizza would take ten minutes to make.

According to the police report, 53-year-old Charles Doty Jr. got angry about the wait time, demanded free breadsticks, stormed outside, then returned with a rifle, pointing it at employees and demanding his pizza immediately.

Employee Kimberleigh Murrell said, “I was shocked it was over a six-dollar pizza.”

Eventually, another coworker was able to talk Doty into putting the AK-47 down until police arrived.

Doty has been charged with aggravated assault and especially aggravated kidnapping.
