There is a novel criminal case just filed against two Domino’s Pizza worker who filmed a prank in the restaurant’s kitchen and put it on the Internet with over a million hits on YouTube alone. Now, prosecutors have hit them with felony charges for delivery prohibited foods.
The video shows one worker in Conover, N.C. making sandwiches for delivery while putting cheese up his nose, putting snot on sandwiches, and other disgusting acts. Domino’s insists that the worker said that they did not actually send the food out — a pretty convenient and predictable defense from the workers that customers might find less than reassuring.
In the video, a woman calling herself Kristy films Michael doing the dirty deeds on the Domino’s products: “In about five minutes it’ll be sent out on delivery where somebody will be eating these, yes, eating them, and little did they know that cheese was in his nose and that there was some lethal gas that ended up on their salami. Now that’s how we roll at Domino’s.” For the video, click here, here and and here.
After some detective work by Consumerist.com, the workers were identified as Kristy Hammonds, 31 and Michael Setzer, 32, and the franchise located in Conover. Warrants were then issued.
Hammonds has posted an apology on emails insisting “It was fake and I wish that everyone knew that!!!!” she wrote. “I AM SOO SORRY!”
These are some pretty hefty potential charges. Hammond may have particular trouble since he reportedly has a record. On June 23, 2008, she was convicted and sentenced to two years of probation for sexual battery and is included in the North Carolina Offender Registry here. What will be interesting is if they get more time for putting snot on sandwiches than the three weeks that Jerome Kenneth Kingzio received this week for actually urinating on a woman on a flight.
Domino’s also plans to sue them civilly which could lead to crushing damages (judicial awards cannot generally be avoided through bankruptcy).

on an earlier thread you were whining about the lack of respect you recieve on this blog. After reading your “contributions” to this thread, I just wonder, why do you go on expecting anything but ridicule from us?
Please… go back to Powerline or FreeRepublic or wherever you feel more at home.
People who rely on the Drudge Report are of the same ilk as those who believe supermarket tabloid headlines like “George Bush Has Sex with Male Alien.” Oh wait, maybe I chose the wrong example?
The Drudge Report . . . the jokes write themselves. What’s next? Quoting Dr. Phil and the Octomom as your fount of wisdom?
Obama and and new best buddy the EVIL CLOWN Hugo Chaves make friends as Chavez gives book to Obama that condemns America.
unfriggin unbelievable. WHY DON’T WE JUST RUN THE WHITE FLAGS UP NOW.

Doncha just love how left wingers are all about personal attacks. . . . and they REALLY start name calling.
You are all such pitiful losers.
This is why the Government should have never cut the funding for Mental Health Care. Who do we have to think for that Ronnie. His policies are still being felt today.
Isn’t that just like a right winger . . . start sh*t and then not have the guts to own it when the get smacked down. George? Is that you?
Doncha just love how left wingers are all about personal attacks. all one has to do is go to a left wing loser blog like this, post one post that makes sense, and they start name calling. Then when you return the favor, all hell breaks loose and they REALLY start name calling.
You are all such pitiful losers.
Well, I for one don’t ever want to grow up. I want to go an see the wizard. I want to be able to state with particularity, “the rain in Spain grows mainly on the plain.” I want to see Pan. No disrespect to anyone on this list.
But I neva ev va want to grow up.
They’re 31 and 32 years-old? Just when does adolescence actually end now?
I’ve no doubt that leann is a too-thin blond, with cold fish eyes and prowess in bed to match. she’s married to some fat slob accountant with small town dreams of glory, maxed credit cards and a thin bank account. They attend church regularly but their prayers revolve around money, rather than spirit, since they see Jesus as a potential ATM card. He’s in the Rotary Club and CofC, but is ignored by the big boys, whose collective behinds he kisses.
Ok, for the last one. Hold the Pickles, Hold the Lettuce and Have it Your way. Nice jingle as well.
I guess Burger King did not want any competition. . . .bada bing
the sign of success was running the panties up the Flag Pole at the end of the evening. Now too many females are in charge and the Flag Poles are locked to prevent such fun.
But you are presuming that, One) she had panties on, Two) she remember what the last room she was in. It does not count when one is the mere pivot, Three) that she did not in fact drink too much and actually urinated in that plane too, four) that she won’t crime some sort of abuse. I have been around females like her before.
Fragile being isn’t she. Limited education, family, moral and social skills. Maybe she was the child that no one wanted to play with and became this defensive over her adolescence years. But who knows she may still be suffering from adult on set acne…
buddha, i hear your mother calling you to clean up your room or it all goes out in the trash, including the bums that you call your friends that haven’t left the room for two days.
My, aren’t you special. I’ve quit better jobs than you’ll ever have. Maybe you’re just too wiped out from being used like a party favor at the Young Republicans Thirtieth Annual Rhohipnal and High Colonic Party last night to realize I’m probably one of the last ones here you want to start flaming. If you can find your panties, it’s probably time to go home.
I suppose you were the director for the NSA. Please, do not throw flames. You apparently have some intelligent genes or you would not be able to read and write. But then again, some like designer jeans and pay extra for them.
I guess as the Director, you were able to appropriate them for very little charge as it was a matter of the National Security.
Buddha, you lasted an hour before you got fired?
Must have been traumatic to have you still bad mouthing them. Some people never get over getting fired for incompetence.
In college, I worked for Domino’s for a grand total of 1 hour. All it took was to see the giant bags of pre-cooked “hamburger”. It was nearly as disgusting as these ad hoc toppings in this story. I not only quit, I never ordered from them again. Those of you who know my age can roughly do the math.
These two fun loving kids already explained the video was fake.
What more do you want? Nobody would lie about something like this right, ahem, like the guy that claims he was kicked out of a baseball game for going to the bathroom during the national anthem????
lie? these people?
oh come on; Turley will defend their right to shove cheese up their nose and put it in your sandwich; there must be SOME reason it is healthy for you.
Dang, and I thought only at McDonalds could you get that extra special sauce. Who would have thought that You could tell if Domino’s Pizza had special sauce. It is kinda hard to tell after you have savored the cardboard that the sauce is attached to.
But it appears the employees will be able to adhere to the McDonalds jingle. You deserve a break today. Or Elvis Presley’s Jailhouse Rock or are you lonesome tonight.
Maybe the TV Judge can incorporate this into his Video.
