Florida pizza man delivers a punch with pie: "When a customer pulled a gun on Eric Lopez Devictoria this week, the Pizza Hut deliveryman fought back with the only thing at hand. A large, steaming hot pepperoni pie. Fearing for his life, Devictoria, 40, lobbed the pizza at the armed man who had ordered him inside a Miramar residence in the 1900 block of Acapulco Drive before 1 p.m. Wednesday, police said. The maneuver bought Devictoria time to run to safety. As he fled, the armed man and his accomplices fired at least one shot, police said. The deliveryman called police, who arrested three teenagers in Pembroke Pines on charges of armed robbery a short time later."
