SEATTLE - A woman in Seattle got into a heated dispute at a Seattle pizza shop about a skimpy side of Sriracha sauce.

The woman called 911 and complained that employees were yelling at her and calling her names.

Police arrived and staff at the pizza parlor asked officers to remove the woman for creating a “disturbance inside when she did not receive what she believed to be an adequate amount of Sriracha sauce.” 

The woman reportedly kept bringing up the Sriracha sauce issue while officers were investigating the incident. 

There was also a tussle between the woman, a man she was with and another younger man who appeared on the scene, though it’s unclear how.

"A 36-year-old woman at the scene told officers she and a 45-year-old man had been at the pizza restaurant and had left following a dispute with staff. She said that when she and her friend left the restaurant, they were accosted by the 29-year-old man, who threw a garbage can, striking the 45-year-old in the leg. It’s unclear how the 29-year-old man came to enter the strange scene,” Seattle.gov reported.

Officers arrested the younger gentleman, who was later released.

The woman, who "attempted to divert [the] investigation from the assault to her irritation with the pizza parlor and her treatment” by an employee “with the tattoos on the face,” was not arrested.
