A college student delivering pizzas for a little extra cash has been demoted by Pizza Hut after defending himself against a group of teen attackers, Fox45 reports.
Sam Swicegood was in the Glen Burnie area of Maryland– where a friend of his was recently robbed at gunpoint– so he hid a fiberglass tent pole up his sleeve before approaching the residence.
“It’s a little fiberglass [rod] I had up my sleeve, not thinking I would actually have to use it, but more or less having a little comfort up my sleeve,” he explained.
But Swicegood was glad he had it when a group of teenagers attacked him.
He is now making pizzas. They were originally going to fire him for carrying a weapon.
