Man caught after allegedly pulling gun on Pizza Hut worker in Gwinnett

A 19-year-old man is in Gwinnett County jail Monday for allegedly pulling a gun on a Pizza Hut worker about three weeks ago.

Trontavious D. Tate, a 19-year-old Stone Mountain man, has been in jail on an aggravated assault charge since Friday. 

A couple days earlier, Gwinnett cops had asked for the public’s help finding Tate.

Police said Tate walked into the 6050 Singleton Road pizza joint about 11:30 a.m. on Feb. 11 to complain about a recent order.

The employee took the pizza, made a new one and told him to “have a great day,” cops said.

Tate allegedly turned around and said, “Do you think this is funny?” before he went out to his car and got his gun.

He came back into the store, shoved two computer monitors and pointed the gun at the employee.

Tate also faces charges of financial fraud. A police spokeswoman said that, while officers were investigating him, they allegedly found he had credit cards that weren’t issued to him.

He was arrested in the 5200 block of Hunt Club Run in Norcross about 5:30 p.m. Friday, police said.

The police department posted pictures of his arrest on Facebook.

Tate is being held without bond, online jail records show.
