National guardsmen deployed for protests delivered pizza containing shards of glass

Per Fox8, two soldiers from South Carolina’s National Guard found shards of glass in a pizza that was delivered to them at their hotel in Washington DC.

According to Fox News, they found the shards of glass baked into the pizza, amid the dough and cheese.

Post and Courier reports the soldiers were staying at the Marriott Marquis Hotel during their mission to the nation’s capital when they decided to order a pizza from a nearby establishment using Uber Eats, according to a Department of Defense report shared with The Post and Courier.

When they opened the pizza, they found shards of glass baked into the dough and cheese.

They didn’t eat the pizza and no one was injured, according to the report. No other Guardsmen experienced a similar problem.

“The command says that the soldiers are OK, and that this was the only incident to their knowledge,” said Capt. Jessica Donnelly, a spokeswoman for the S.C. National Guard.

She said the soldiers were advised to file a police report about the incident. A spokeswoman for the D.C. Metro Police Department said there was no report on file.

Department of Defense personnel have seen an increase in threats, according to the report, but it went on to state that there have been no specific threats made by protesters against soldiers.

The soldiers’ names were not mentioned in the Department of Defense report or named by S.C. National Guard officials.

The S.C. National Guard troops returned from their deployment on Tuesday. Gov. Henry McMaster sent nearly 500 soldiers to Washington, D.C., last week to support President Donald Trump.

Trump said he wanted to “dominate” the streets in response to protesters. The demonstrations were sparked by the death of George Floyd, a black man from Minneapolis whose death at the hands of police was captured on video.
