The victim told police that her father, Tyler Worden, 41, came to her home Sunday afternoon to drop pizza off, but when she told Tyler that she was not feeling well and asked him to leave, Tyler refused and began arguing with her.
Deputies say that when Tyler stepped outside of the threshold of the front door, Kristen began to shut the door behind him, and that’s when pepperoni started flying.
According to the arrest affidavit, Tyler turned around and threw a slice of pizza at Kristin, striking her in the face. Kristin continued yelling at Tyler, telling him to leave, but he refused and Kristin called 911.
