(PCM) A judge has ordered that 49-year old, Randy Riddle, be banned from ordering pizza delivery after a serious of prank calls made by him caused local pizza businesses to lose nearly $700 in revenue. Riddle was arrested and charged with multiple counts of theft, as well as, making obscene and harassing phone calls.
After his arrest, Riddle was released on bail, however one of the judges conditions for his release was that he refrain from calling any pizza delivery establishments. A warrant affidavit quoted by TCPalm.com says “Defendant shall refrain from calling any pizza establishment and/or making any harassing calls or his bond shall be revoked”.
The local authorities claim that Riddle called several pizza delivery establishments and used multiple fake names and phone numbers. He would order a bunch of food and then have delivery drivers sent out to vacant properties or non-existent addresses to deliver food which was never paid for. After awhile this kind of situation adds up to major loss for the pizza shops.
This guy must have had some kind of terrible pizza delivery experience, either that or he just gets off on other people’s misfortune. He would also call the various restaurants just to complain about the service or the food. This is not Riddle’s first run-in with the law as he was previously convicted about eight years ago of making harassing phone calls when he lived in another part of Florida.
