Texas Worker Charged With Tampering With Pizza

An 18-year-old pizza store employee in Texas has been charged with a felony after police say he rubbed his genitals on food he was preparing for a customer.

The Georgetown Police Department arrested Austin Symonds last week and charged him with tampering with a consumer product.

A Papa Murphy's customer who ordered food on Sept. 2 told police he caught Symonds. Police said Symonds admitted that he would have given the pizza to the customer if he hadn't been caught.

A store employee told the Austin American-Statesman that Symonds has been fired.

Symonds was released from the Williamson County Jail after posting $10,000 bond. Online jail records didn't indicate an attorney.
