A pizza delivery driver told Uniontown police a man threatened her with a stun gun when she tried to deliver a pizza.
The woman told police she was delivering a pizza to a Farragut Street residence at 8:49 p.m. Saturday when she encountered a group of men in a nearby parking lot, according to a city police report.
One of them approached the driver, “zapped” the stun gun at her and demanded she give him the pizza, police said. The driver immediately drove away the area, but the man followed her for a short distance.
Police who went to the Farragut Street residence found it to be abandoned.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
