Should You Stand Your Ground In An Assault With Pizza?

And can you shoot someone assaulting you with a pizza?

More weekend hijinks from Fort Mill, SC:

Deputies were called to 1034 JW Wilson Road where they met with a 40-year-old woman who told police her boyfriend, Jimmy Ray Poage, threw pizza at her, according to a York County Sheriff’s report. Poage then grabbed her around her neck and slammed her against the kitchen counter.

When deputies arrived at the home, the woman’s arms, face and clothing were still covered in pizza sauce, the report states. There were also red marks on her neck and a cut on her back.

Poage initially denied throwing the pizza or hitting his girlfriend, but then recanted, deputies said, and told authorities he did throw the pizza only after she threw it at him, the report states.

Ah ha! He's claiming self-defense!
