On Sunday, May 23, a Florida man was arrested for assaulting his daughter with a pizza he had brought over to share with her. Tyler Worden, 41, visited the Vero Beach home of his 20-year-old daughter, Kristin Worden with a pizza in hand. When she did not want to share the pizza, things got ugly.
Kristin told her father she was not feeling good and asked him to leave. The father became angry and refused to leave. The daughter began to yell at her father and called 911 after he allegedly started throwing pizza slices at her, police said.
When Officer Jonathan Lozada from the Vero Beach Police Department responded to the woman’s call, he discovered tomato sauce on her face. Lozada also found pizza toppings covering the entryway of the woman’s house. When the father was questioned, he claimed he threw the pizza after she closed the door.
Lozada also noted the “strong odor of an alcoholic beverage” on the father’s breath.
He arrested Tyler Worden on a misdemeanor charge and booked him into the Indian River County Jail.
