Manager Refuses To Give Away Free Pizza, Ends Up In Hospital With Brain Injuries

A stunning instance of customers behaving badly has emanated from Huntington Beach, California, and this wasn’t simply disgruntled people looking to raise a stink. A pair of men demanded free pizza from a restaurant manager. Their request was denied, so they decided to beat the living daylights out of the manager. As the Daily Mail shares, he wound up in the hospital and had to have brain surgery.

The stunning attack happened at Thunder Burgrz Pizza. Garret Peterson, 33, was managing the restaurant when he was approached by the men looking for free food. After he denied the request, they left the establishment - but they hung around to wait for Peterson. When he exited the restaurant, they pulled him into an alley and pummeled him.

Police were summoned to the area on reports of a fight, and they would arrive to find Peterson on the ground with severe injuries. He was rushed to the hospital and had to undergo emergency brain surgery, and he’s been placed in a medically induced coma as he recovers. No word on what the long-term prognosis for Peterson is, but his friends have set up a GoFundMe page to help with expenses.

“Garret has been working downtown for the last two years. He was assaulted at his job multiple times, however, this is, unfortunately, the worst time. I live with Garret so I have personally seen the aftermath. He is the type of person who is happy all the time. He draws people in and makes friends with everyone. He never has a negative thing to say about anyone and is basically a giant teddy bear,” the page reads in part.

Bryce Anthony Mezich, 21, and Austin Wright Callan, 22 were arrested at the scene of the attack. Here’s to hoping that they go away for a long time, and that Peterson finds another job that he may not be assaulted at after he makes a full recovery.
