Loss of Job Inevitable for Pizza Delivery Driver Who Shot Attackers

A Domino's Pizza delivery driver fired a shot at at least two men who were trying to rob him Saturday night, the Titusville police said today.

The Domino's employee, who has not been identified by police, was making a delivery on Parkland Street in Titusville when at least two suspects tried to rob him. The delivery driver — who was armed — fired a shot at the men, who fled on foot. Authorities do not know if the suspects were struck by the gunfire.

The Titusville police department is asking anyone with information on the incident to call Crimeline at 1-800-423-TIPS. Tipsters may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.

What usually happens next is that someone mounts an internet campaign to re-instate the driver, for excercising his right to defend himself. Then Tim McIntyre from Domino's will make a statement that it is against company policy for employees to carry a firearm. The protest will then mount into a "Boycott Domino's", and will be publicised on Digg. In the meantime, hopefully people will think twice before attacking a Pizza Delivery Driver
