Man cops $750 after raging over pizza delivery
WHEN Ricky Lee Woods gets a pizza craving he must now track one down further away from home after a North Mackay take-away pizza shop refused to deliver pizza to his home.
He may also have to change his neighbourhood in order to attract home delivery.
Woods, 33, also did his dough - enough for a year's supply of pizza - after being convicted and fined $750 when he pleaded guilty in Mackay Magistrates Court to a public nuisance offence at 7.15pm on June 12 at Andergrove.
Feeling hungry at dinner time, Woods made a phone order for pizza but when the store refused to deliver to his address, he fired up and made his way to the store.
Following an argument at the store over the lack of pizza delivery, police were called and watched CCTV footage of the verbal exchange.
Officers later made their way to his home to speak with him.
Police prosecutor Michael Ball said Woods became upset after being told pizza orders were barred from his street because of frequent disturbances in that street.
While at the store Woods acted aggressively and screamed at the woman before leaving.
Woods had told police he only went to the store to inquire why he couldn't get a pizza delivered and he did not remember pushing the counter.
Magistrate Damien Dwyer said Woods would obviously not be getting pizza there again and it was time to "grow up".
