Pizza squabble ends without arrest

An argument about mixing work with pleasure at a Round Hill pizza establishment ended in an employee displaying a pocket knife before throwing it into the hills, a Douglas County sheriff’s deputy said.

The restaurant’s 36-year-old general manager told a 29-year-old he couldn’t work at the pizza chain Monday because his girlfriend worked there, the deputy said. An argument occurred outside behind the restaurant where threats were traded.

The general manager reportedly pulled a pocket knife out and threw it into the hills before authorities arrived, the deputy said. No one was arrested.

— A 19-foot Century boat was destroyed south of Logan Shoals Marina last weekend when its mooring broke, causing the vessel to crash into the rocky shore, a Douglas County sheriff’s deputy said.

The boat was discovered by a witness Sunday but high winds and 4 to 6 foot swells prevented the Douglas County sheriff’s boat patrol from reaching the wreckage.

Deputies returned Monday and found pieces and debris from the boat littering the shore. The Century’s engine was in 3 feet of water.
