Robbers Makes Painful Discovery After Attacking This Pizza Man Without Realizing Who He Is

Some thieves decided to order a pizza so that they could rob the delivery man. They probably thought some pimple-faced, defenseless teenager with a wad of delivery cash in his pocket was going to show up and be an easy target. They couldn't have been more wrong-- it just wasn't their day.

The thieves ordered the pizza, but that was no defenseless kid delivering it. The owner of two Beggars Pizza franchises got the call just before closing and decided to run the pizzas out himself.

The owner of that pizza franchise is Napoleon Hill III, former Illinois state senator. Before his career in politics, Harris was an NFL linebacker for the Oakland Raiders.

Harris was unaware that the home he approached with the pizzas was vacant. A man greeted him on the porch, and three more burst out of the bushes and attacked him. No doubt the men weren't prepared for a 6'3", 250-pound ex-football player.

“They put a chokehold on the senator, but to no avail. They were really trying to choke him to death, and he was just too strong. He out-powered all four of them,” said Harvey, Illinois police spokesperson Sean Howard, according to CBS 2. “As they were all beating on him, one guy just went out of his way and really hit him hard, and Napoleon never moved.”

The men fled with the pizza and Napoleon's wallet. The senator gave chase in his own car, calling police as he followed the crooks. As it turned out, the thieves had a stolen car that belonged to a man named Lester Roy Jones. Jones' blood was found in the car-- and his body was found in an abandoned house a few days later. The three crooks were murderers.

Three of the suspects have been caught and police are searching for a third. Napoleon was lucky that night; had it been anyone else delivering that pizza, there might have been another dead body instead of arrests.
