LITHONIA, Ga. - A DeKalb County family is living in fear of what could happen next after someone vandalized their car by smashing their windshield.

The family did not want any of their faces shown on TV, but told Channel 2's Eric Philips they think the damage was caused by a pizza delivery person.

"Now it's at the point where I haven't slept since the incident. I'm terrified for my family," the husband said.

On April 25, the family ordered a pizza from Papa John's. When the delivery driver arrived at their Lithonia home, the family said they did not have exact change for the $11.25 bill. Then, the wife asked the driver to turn down the music in her car.

"She just stood there and she looked at me and was like, 'What's her problem?'" the husband said.

The family told the delivery woman they did not want the pizza and asked her to leave.

"She started calling people saying she was going to F this B up," the wife said. "She said she was coming back, and that's when I knew that she meant business, because she was very irate."

The couple called Papa John's to report the incident and the driver was fired the next day, but several days later, the wife found the windshield of her car smashed.

The family filed a police report and is preparing to take out a restraining order against the driver they believe committed this crime.

"This has put our family on edge. I don't want any other family feeling like this," the wife said.

The general manager of the Papa John's said the driver was fired immediately because they have a zero-tolerance policy for treating customers poorly. He said the restaurant is cooperating fully with the DeKalb County Police Department.
