A Kentucky man was arrested after he beat a 9-year-old boy for taking toppings off of his pizza.
34-year-old Nicholas McCoy allegedly beat the boy by hitting him repeatedly in the legs with a belt, causing bruising, as well as hitting the child in the face, causing bruises.
The boy’s mother told cops that the reason Mr. McCoy had done it was because he was upset that he was removing toppings from his pizza and not eating the pizza fast enough.
A warrant was issued on September 15th, and he was arrested on September 28th.
Heâ€™s been charged with first degree criminal abuse of a child under the age of 12 and is being held in the Boyle County Detention Center.
