Mis-delivered pizza leads to arrests for battery


GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Makayla Nichole Chapman, 21, Tianna Sierra Renee Johnson, 26, and two juveniles were arrested last night after they allegedly attacked a woman who mistakenly received a pizza they had ordered.

At about 2:15 a.m. on March 5, the victim reportedly received a pizza delivery at her apartment. She told a Gainesville Police Department officer that she asked around outside to see who ordered the pizza, and nobody said anything. She passed out the pizza to anyone who wanted some and returned to her apartment.

About 15 minutes later, Chapman, Johnson, and two 17-year-old girls reportedly knocked on the victim’s door and said she owed them $100 for the pizza. The victim told officers that she went back into her apartment and went upstairs, then one of the juveniles entered the apartment to confront the victim about the money. The juvenile allegedly grabbed the victim by the arm and walked her outside, punching her with a closed fist until the victim was outside the apartment. All four defendants then allegedly began beating the victim.

According to the arrest reports for the two adults, both Chapman and Johnson reportedly said, post-Miranda, that they tried to break up the fight, but then the victim hit them in the face, and they all started fighting; it is unclear whether they provided the same story or there is an error on one of the arrest affidavits. The officer reported that he saw a video supporting the victim’s account of the incident. Both adults were charged with simple battery, a misdemeanor.

Chapman has no criminal history; she was released on her own recognizance and ordered to have no contact with her co-defendants.

Johnson has one misdemeanor conviction for petit theft; she was released on her own recognizance and ordered to have no contact with her co-defendants.

Articles about arrests are based on reports from law enforcement agencies. The charges listed are taken from the arrest report and/or court records and are only accusations. All suspects are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. 

  • That’s taking “hangry” to a whole new level. Wonder what they would have done to one another for that last slice of pizza?

    Ordered, “to have no contact with co-defendants.” May as well arrest them now; they were going to feed together and decided to beat someone up together.

    It’s tribal.

  • I’m surprised any pizza shop would deliver to Campus Walk that late at night. It’s like a slice of Phoenix right by Sorority Row. People not knowing their own address/apt # is just one of the many difficulties I would expect. And it will never be their fault – never never never.

  • See, if these idiots had any logical thinking skills…. They would have had the victim call the pizza place and confirm their pizza was given to the wrong apartment. Then the pizza place would have apologized and offered a replacement pizza; maybe an extra coupon for the inconveniences. Just ghetto ghetto ghetto….

  • Democrat culture, 4 girls beat up 1 girl and it is simple battery? Should be harsher punishment.
