Two Jersey City police officers have been suspended after they were caught on camera storming into a Domino’s Pizza restaurant and shoving its manager against a wall because they were angry about a late delivery.
Footage obtained by NBC New York shows the officers entering the Domino’s and immediately seeking out the manager, a man named Mena Kirolos, who emerges from a door leading to the back of the restaurant.
The officers proceed to get right in Kirolos’ face and start angrily complaining about a pizza they’d ordered earlier in the day. According to Kirolos, his delivery driver had tried to drop off their pizza at the location the officers provided, but when he arrived, no one came to the door to pick it up.
None of this seemed to satisfy the two officers, however, as they proceeded to push the manager up against the wall while still complaining about their pizza. One of the officers at that point threatened to arrest Kirolos and told him, “I’ll lock you up!”
The situation eventually ended when the officers went with Kirolos outside to have a conversation about the failed pizza delivery.
Upon seeing footage of the incident, the Jersey City Police Department suspended both officers involved and charged them with harassment and disorderly conduct.

On Tuesday, The New York Times reported that new filings show President Donald Trump's campaign — and the Republican Party itself — are teetering on the brink of financial oblivion.
"New filings with the Federal Election Commission showed the extent of Mr. Trump’s cash troubles, which are severe enough that he diverted time from key battleground states and flew to California on Sunday for a fund-raiser with just over two weeks until Election Day," reported Shane Goldmacher and Rachel Shorey. "The president ended September with just over half as much money as he had at the beginning of the month."
Trump has ‘routinely gossiped’ that Dr. Fauci was auditioning ‘to get a job at CNN’: report
On Tuesday, The Daily Beast reported that President Donald Trump is now convinced that Dr. Anthony Fauci is trying to play to the media to get positive attention, or maybe even a job.
"In recent months, Trump has routinely gossiped with close associates and advisers that Fauci is behaving like a member of anti-MAGA 'resistance' commentators," reported Erin Blanco. "In the past few weeks, the president has told multiple people that he believes Fauci is angling to earn the media’s adulation and that it at times appears to him that the famous infectious disease expert is 'audition[ing]' or 'trying to get a job at CNN,' according to two sources with knowledge of his private comments."
