The Texas pizza store employee arrested for adding an unwanted topping — his scrotum — to a customer’s takeout pie is getting off with a slap on the wrist for the revolting act, records show.
Austin Symonds, 19, was busted last year after a patron watched the Papa Murphy’s worker “rubbing his testicles on the pizza he had ordered,” according to a criminal complaint detailing the incident at the eatery in Georgetown, an Austin suburb.
Symonds subsequently confessed to a store manager, saying that he targeted the customer’s pizza — a large stuffed pie with Canadian bacon, pineapple, and extra cheese — because the patron phoned in his order “right before closing time.” The teenager was fired following his September arrest.
…Symonds was originally charged with tampering with a consumer product. That felony count was dismissed earlier this year and replaced with a misdemeanor charge of violating the Texas Health and Safety Code.
