GLASGOW, Ky. (WBKO) - Glasgow police arrested a man Tuesday after they say he assaulted employees and officers at Little Caesar’s Pizza on West Cherry Street.

Ryan Woodard, 46, was charged with first-degree robbery, resisting arrest, four counts of third-degree assault of a police officer, three counts of fourth-degree assault, second-degree disorderly conduct, first-degree criminal mischief, menacing and public intoxication.

Officers spoke with the manager of the restaurant who said that several employees had been assaulted by Woodard after he had “demanded pizzas then attempted to leave without paying for them.”
