A Florida chef threw himself a pizza pity party and allegedly attacked his daughter after she refused to eat with him.
On May 23,Tyler Worden, 41, paid 20-year-old Kristin Worden a visit at her home, bringing a pizza along so they could dine together, according to an arrest affidavit obtained by The Smoking Gun.
Just before 4 p.m., the Indian River County Sheriff’s Office responded to a disturbance in progress call, and a deputy noticed Kristin “appeared to have what looked to be tomato sauce on the left side of her face,” the affidavit states.
The alleged victim told the deputy her biological father, Tyler, “came to her residence to drop pizza off. When he arrived, she told him she wasn’t feeling good and asked him to leave.”
According to Tyler’s daughter, he refused to go and began arguing with her.
“As he stepped outside of the threshold to the front door, Kristin began to close the door. As she did so,” the affidavit notes, “Tyler turned around and threw a slice of pizza at her, striking her in the face.”
After the snack attack, Kristin called 911.
The affidavit states the father told the deputy he was “upset because he wanted to stay” and eat with his daughter. He also claimed he thought the door was closed when he threw the pizza slice that struck the woman’s face.
The deputy did a little investigating and observed Kristin’s door opened outwards and was free of pizza sauce or toppings.
Based on that evidence, the affidavit states, “there is no way that Tyler could not have seen that the door was open when he threw the pizza.”
The deputy alleged in the affidavit that Tyler had “a strong odor of alcoholic beverage” on his breath.
The father was booked into the Indian River County Jail on a battery charge. He was released on $500 bond and ordered to have no contact with his daughter.
