Man assaulted over calzone complaint

PALM COAST, Fla. - Flagler County authorities say a restaurant owner pistol-whipped and beat a customer who complained that his takeout order was incorrect.

Joseph Milano, the owner of Goomba's Pizzeria, has been charged with aggravated assault and battery with a deadly weapon and released on bail.

According to a police report, security footage from the pizzeria shows that Milano struck Richard Phinney with a gun. He then jumped over a counter and started to assault Phinney and his roommate.

Phinney was at the pizzeria to collect a refund for a calzone, which he said was prepared incorrectly. He was taken to a hospital after the incident with a bloodied head.

First of all, how stupid do you have to be to go back to a place called "Goomba's" looking for a refund? And, he went back unarmed, to boot! Hasn't this guy ever seen 'Goodfellas?'

Obviously, pizza maestro, Joseph "The Big Calzone" Milano, never got into that whole 'the customer is always right' thing. And to bitch about a calzone he made is like making fun of his name, his reputation, his heritage.

The article says the disgruntled diner went to the hospital with a "bloodied head."

You mean, like this:
