SANDY SPRINGS, GA (CBS46) -

A supervisor-in-training has been accused of pepper spraying a co-worker due to a disagreement over how a pizza was prepared.

The incident occurred on May 16 at the Pizza Hut in the 4900 block of Roswell Road in Sandy Springs, just north of downtown Atlanta.

According to a police report, Anderson Lewis got into an argument with his co-worker because he didn't like the way she was placing cheese and pepperoni on pizzas she was preparing.

The disagreement led to an argument that escalated between the employees, according to the report.

Police say the general manager at the restaurant tried to separate the employees, but Lewis is ultimately accused of pepper spaying the victim.

The victim told authorities the pepper spray hit her arm, instead of her face, according to the report.

Lewis left the store before authorities arrived, and said, "Don't call me again because I'm not going to answer," when an officer tried to reach him from the restaurant, according to the report.

Police say they are pursuing a warrant for Lewis for one count of disorderly conduct. He was also in the process of being suspended from the restaurant, according to the police report.
