SURVEILLANCE VIDEO SHOWS A MASKED MAN WALK INTO THE PIZZA SHOP, THROW A BAG OVER THE COUNTER, THEN CLIMB OVER HIMSELF, WAVING WHAT LOOKS LIKE A HANDGUN.>>PRETTY INSANE. STILL A LITTLE SHAKY, SHOCKED ABOUT IT. DAVID: THE ROBBER FORCES ONE OF THE WORKERS TO HELP HIM OPEN THE REGISTER. AND AT FIRST THE OTHER WORKERS ARE STUNNED, INCLUDING TREVOR KOSLA.>>I WAS JUST FROZEN IN MY TRACKS. I DID NOT HAVE TIME TO THINK ABOUT THE PLAN OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT. I JUST REACTED. DAVID: KOSLA GRABS THE ROBBER FROM BEHIND AND PULLS HIM BACK. THE ROBBER TRIES TO JUMP BACK OVER THE COUNTER, BUT NOW TWO OTHERS WORKERS ALSO GRAB HIM. THEY WRESTLE HIM TO THE FLOOR OF THE PIZZA SHOP.>>THAT IS WHEN I HOPPED ON TOP OF HIM. I WAS THERE THE WHOLE TIME UNTIL THE COPS GOT THERE. DAVID: AN OFFICER ARRIVES, SLAPS CUFFS ON THE MAN AND PULLS OFF HIS MASK. THAT’S WHEN KOSLA AND THE OTHERS GOT A SURPRISE.>>OH, I WAS DEFINITELY SHOCKED BY IT YEAH. COMPLETELY SHOCKED. I KNOW HIM WELL PERSONALLY. DAVID: KOSLA RECOGNIZED THE MAN AS SEAN COULSON, THE PIZZA SHOP’S FORMER MANAGER, WHO WORKERS SAY WAS FIRED LAST SUMMER FOR COMING TO WORK DRUNK AND GIVING AWAY FREE PIZZA.
