Cops: Deliveryman Stabs Customer Over Late Pizza

The only good thing about this story is the phrase, "the injuries are not life-threatening." Police say a Domino's deliveryman stabbed a customer in the neck and wrist during an argument about a late delivery, reports the Los Angeles Times. Apparently, the 20-year-old customer offered only a $3 tip on the $45 order because it was so late—how late isn't specified—and the deliveryman took offense and wouldn't leave the doorway, reports KTLA. The ensuing confrontation spilled into the driveway. Michael Parker, 31, is charged with assault with a deadly weapon, while the customer is in stable condition. (More weird crimes stories.)
