A man accused of punching a pizza delivery person "because he forgot the garlic knots" got locked up on a misdemeanor charge, according to a recently released arrest affidavit.
The website TCPalm reports that a man on Aug. 19 told Indian River County Sheriff's deputies he was a pizza delivery person and was taking pizza to an address in Vero Beach. The pizza deliverer said when he got there, Robert Wheeler, 48, was waiting for him outside.
The pizza deliverer said that when he lowered his window, the 346-pound Wheeler asked him who he spoke with on the phone before punching him in the face. The pizza deliverer said Wheeler punched him "because he forgot the garlic knots."
