Re: SD Question - Pizza Parlor Attack

I know the attacker got a jail sentence for the attack.....and I know the woman "Prestia SIms" was scheduled to go to court for her role. Did anyone hear about her court appearance and subsequent sentencing? I have not been able to find anything.

Re: SD Question - Pizza Parlor Attack

Sims says she pleaded guilty to three misdemeanor charges in August in order to avoid a felony charge. She served six months in jail, and was released in February.

Man Beats Pizza Parlor Customer

But she says now prosecutors have slapped her with an assault charge, and she is scheduled to go on trial March 14.

Sims said she feels like she has already served her time, and shouldn't face more charges.

She also said she accepts responsibility for what happened that night, and apologizes to Scarpino for what happened to him.
As of Feb. 25th, 2005.

Ai symbol Re: SD Question - Pizza Parlor Attack

Here's some things that have worked for me in my line of work, where I have met my share of "society's finest." OK, I'm in law enforcement and believe Aikido works. We can all "Monday Morning Quarterback" but the best thing is not to get into the situation at all, but once you do:


1. Observe behavior and environment- don't get distracted (cell phones, radios, etc. are your worst enemy in some cases).
2. Look around, be aware- be always vigilant!!
3. Avoid the incident (you never know what people carry, i.e. weapons) or negotiate a peaceful settlement.
4. If you cannot avoid the incident, be prepared to act swiftly and decisively
5. If there's more aggressors than you can take, get out of the pit, don't do the "John Wayne" thing and try to become a crime statistic
6. If it's your life on the line, use whatever there is available to place a barrier between you and the attacker(s) or throw a distraction their way and then get out
7. Don't start anything you cannot or will not be willing to finish

And by the way delivery pizza tastes better than being whacked by Bubba the Thug!!

Re: SD Question - Pizza Parlor Attack

Hi Mark, nice meeting you as well.

Frankly, I'd rather see revived topics than new threads about the same stuff.

Best,
Ron
