GEORGETOWN, TX – There’s usually nothing hard about ordering a pizza, unless you call in right at closing time and get Austin Symonds.

Symonds was was pulling the late-night shift at a Pappa Murphy’s pizza place in Georgetown, Texas. The police report provides the deep dish on what happened, but here’s just a slice.

It was almost closing time when a customer called in an order for a family-sized stuffed pizza with Canadian bacon, pineapple, and extra cheese.

When the customer came to pick up his order, he saw Symonds adding something extra to the pizza in the form of “meat balls” that were not on the regular menu, but were on Symonds, if you know what we mean.

Symonds later admitted to rubbing his tangy topping on the pizza because he was upset with the customer for calling right at closing time.

He also told cops that he would have given the man the extra special pizza if he hadn’t been caught red-handed.

Now he’s facing a felony charge of tampering with a consumer product, and he’s looking for a new job.

Who knows, there must be an opening for a ball boy somewhere.
