Guilty plea in West Chester pizza-throwing case

    The West Chester man who’s been in and out of court for throwing a piece of pizza at a car will spend the next three to six months on probation after entering a guilty plea.

     

    William Fennie admitted yesterday he tossed the slice — deemed a solid, and therefore, a weapon — at a car, and then refused to cooperate with police.

    Fennie’s guilty plea makes moot last week’s motion by his lawyer to question the constitutionally of the law that qualifies solid objects as weapons.

    Fennie will serve two consecutive 90-day probation sentences, the Daily Local reports, but will not have to report to the probation department for the second half if he cooperates during the first. He’ll also pay $600 in fines. Perhaps he’ll celebrate the end of his probation with a pizza party?
