St. Paul, Minnesota police were called to a Domino’s Pizza on Thursday evening after a customer pointed a handgun at the staff. By the time officers arrived, Holly Jo Robinson and her daughter, Lakia, had left, but employees informed police that the reason for the armed intrusion was because they were upset that their wings hadn’t been delivered with their pizza. It was easy for police to find the Robinsons’ home, since Domino’s had their address, and they were taken to jail in 30 minutes or less.
