    According to the hostage taker he is a Vietnam vet, but the FBI has been unable to verify his story. He was definately a disturbed individual. Glad that all my co-workers were able to end this and everyone of them went home safely! Great job Wythe County!

    Glad that no one was hurt. If he only wanted a pizza he could have done that from home. I hope that we get more info here soon. There is alot of it missing.

    Gotta rate this up for a job well done by the responding guys.
    Weird, and not enough info...
    I am just hoping this guy is not a Combat Wounded Vet with some PTSD...
    If that is not the case... Book his butt to the fullest extent.

    Hold on here for a moment! This guy must have had other issues!!! What he did will probably put him behind bars for a long time because of the felony charges that he'll receive.

    Had he just ordered a pizza and had it delivered to his house, and just not paid the pizza guy, he would have only been hit with a misdmeanor.

    SOME PEOPLE!
