A pizza delivery driver in Albuquerque, N.M., will not be facing charges for exercising his right to armed self-defense. The driver was parked outside the Domino’s where he worked when Gerardo Alvarado allegedly held up the restaurant. But on his way out, Alvarado spotted the driver and decided to shake him down for money as well. The driver produced a firearm and shot Alvarado.
Alvarado was hospitalized and has been moved from critical to stable condition. Once he is released, he will be charged with armed robbery and attempted armed robbery. “No charges are expected to be filed against the delivery driver,” said Albuquerque Police Department spokesman Tanner Tixier.
