Judge to consider constitutionality of pizza-throwing law

    A Chester County judge ruled last month that a slice of pizza counts as weapon. After all, it’s a solid, which is pretty much all that the vague law requires something to be for it to be considered a weapon. The judge will take the bench again next week to determine if the law is constitutional.

    Defense attorney Michael J. Reed of West Chester is asking Judge James P. MacElree to delcare the law unconstitutional because of its vague language, reports the West Chester Daily Local. Reed’s client, William James Fennie III, was arrested last fall for throwing a slice of pizza — a weapon — at a car.

    Reed and MacElree will face off again March 21, followed by a pizza party.
