Man slaps cashier over pizza, police say

LIVONIA, Mich. (Gray News) - Jason Thorpe had two options when he came back to a Michigan Little Caesar’s upset about his pizza.

He could either wait for a replacement pizza or take a refund.

Thorpe chose neither. He opted for violence.

According to Livonia police, Thorpe was captured on the store’s surveillance camera slapping a female cashier in the face.

She fell to the floor. A female accomplice escorted Thorpe back to the car.

They drove away, but not before another customer followed them to the parking lot and got a picture of his license plate.

That customer handed it over to detectives who used it to track Thorpe down.

Jason Thorpe pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault and battery. He will spend 20 days in jail.
