An employee of the Dallas-area Pizza Lounge forced a 61-year old customer to undress then took him out back where he beat the guy with a pipe. Apparently, he was trying to pay for his $17.60 tab with someone else’s credit card and the employee was “sick and tired of this type of thing happening at his business.”
The victim was treated for minor wounds and arrested on suspicion of credit card abuse. The physical abuse inflicted by the employee has gone unpunished, as the police claim the injuries were not serious enough to warrant it. However, charges could be brought up in the future.
Maybe if the tab was under $10, he would have gotten away with just a pipe beating. Each article of clothing is $.50 extra.
