A Marion, Ohio, pizzeria owner heard a noise at the back of his
restaurant early one morning and thought it might be one of his
employees. When he heard another noise like someone stumbling, he
went in the back to investigate and discovered a strange man in the
kitchen. The owner ran to his office, retrieved a gun and pointed it
at the interloper. "I was very angry that there was some guy in my
store," said owner John VanBuskirk. He ordered the intruder to the
floor and called 9-1-1. Police arrived quickly and took charge of
the situation. When interrogated by police, the suspect, Ernest
Wesley, Jr., claimed the owner had invited him in for free pizza.
"It's as ridiculous as it sounds," VanBuskirk said of Wesley's
claim. He said he would certainly not invite someone in for free
pizza at 4 a.m.
