A man in Knoxville, Tennessee was arrested charged with aggravated assault after pulling out his rifle in a Pizza shop in Knoxville.

The suspect, identified as 53-year-old Charles Doty threatened Little Caesar's employees with his AK-47 rifle after they told him his pizza would take ten minutes to make.

Charles reportedly got really upset after being told that his 6 dollar pepperoni pizza would take 10 minutes to prepare.

Officers responded to a call from the restaurant after 9 pm on Friday. According to the report, the suspect also demanded a free breadstick order before going outside to seemingly wait for the pizza.

When Charles returned inside, he was carrying a rifle in hand and pointed it at the employees, demanding his pizza immediately. He even stopped an employee trying to leave the place, asking "Where in the hell do you think you're going?". A woman waiting in line offered him her pizza to calm him down and get him to leave before anything violent occurred.

Charles Doty Jr. was charged with aggravated assault and is currently in jail.

Earlier, another man had threatened a delivery person with an axe, asking to hand over the pizza. The delivery person escaped safely.
