Randall White ordered a thin-crust veggie pie at a Little Caesars restaurant in St. Petersburg, Fla., on Sunday and complained about the slow service. He didn't get his pizza faster, but he did get two bullets in the gut, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

According to the paper, Michael Jock, another customer, told White to pipe down. That led to shoving, and when White, 49, raised his fist, Jock, 52, allegedly pulled out a legally concealed .38 revolver and shot White in the stomach. The two men wrestled and Jock allegedly shot White again.

According to the Sun-Sentinel, Jock told police the shooting was justified under Florida's Stand Your Ground law, but he was arrested for aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.

White was apparently well enough to tell the Tampa Bay Times, "To me, that stand your ground rule ... people are twisting it."

Florida's Stand Your Ground law -- which in some cases permits deadly force in self-defense without an attempt to retreat first -- has been severely tested recently. Michael Dunn invoked the controversial measure in November after he shot and killed 17-year-old Jordan Russell Davis during an argument at a Jacksonville gas station. Dunn was arraigned Monday on first degree murder charges, NPR reports.

The Dunn case is reminiscent of the most high-profile "stand your ground" case of 2012: George Zimmerman pleaded not guilty under "stand your ground" protections to charges that he murdered 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
