WSU DB Shalom Luani Arrested After Fight Over Delayed Domino's Pizza

Washington State starting safety Shalom Luani, 22, was not feeling very peaceful last night.

At about 1:30 a.m., Shalom Luani reportedly engaged in an altercation at Domino's Pizza because his thought his order was taking too long.

According to witnesses, Luani punched a 20-year-old customer, breaking his nose, after the manager asked him to leave the establishment with a full refund. The victim was also a Washington State student.

Pullman Police found the 6-foot-1, 200-pound Washington State senior under the influence of alcohol, but cooperative. The officials arrested the starting defensive back for second-degree felony assault but ultimately released him for compliance.

Bottom line: Don't enrage a hungry athlete.

Luani appeared in all 13 games for the Cougars last season. His 90 tackles and team-high four interceptions earned him an All-Pac-12 honorable mention nod. Accordingly, he's one of the team's key starters in the secondary this season.

From now on, the defensive back might want to try out another food chain for late-night food. But, in all fairness, we don't know how long the was waiting for his pizza.
