These thugs messed with the wrong guy. The thieves were not expecting someone like Napoleon Harris III to deliver the pizza and got the snot beat out of them because of it.
Four robbers who plotted to mug a pizza boy after ordering a delivery to an unoccupied house found their plans coming undone when a 250lb former linebacker turned up with the pie.
Napoleon Harris III, the six-foot-three-inch Illinois Senator and former Minnesota Vikings linebacker, was in a Chicago Beggars Pizza franchise he owns when a call came in at the last minute on September 6.
He decided to run the pizza in himself – and ended up serving up some rough justice instead, CBS 2 reported.
Harris had offered to deliver the pizza because his crew was ‘overwhelmed’ – and as the robbers were about to learn, Harris is a tough guy to overwhelm.
He arrived at the house, on the 15800 block of Paulina Avenue in Harvey around three miles his pizza parlor, to find one of the robbers on the porch.
As Harris entered the property, though, three others sprang from the bushes in the front yard and attempted to overwhelm him. They failed. Dramatically.
‘They put a chokehold on the senator, but to no avail,’ Sean Howard, a spokesman for both Harris and the local PD, said. ‘They were really trying to choke him to death, and he was just too strong. He out-powered all four of them.’
‘As they were all beating on him, one guy just went out of his way and really hit him hard, and Napoleon never moved.
‘He just looked at him like Hulk Hogan, and from that the guys knew that we better get out of here, because we can’t get this guy down.’
