Lost lunch

A traffic agent about to write a ticket on an illegally parked car was assaulted on May 14 — with a slice of pizza.

Cops said that agent was walking along 18th Avenue between Bay Ridge Parkway and 76th Street when he spotted a 2010 Mitsubishi Galant parked at a hydrant. Its owner, 33-year-old Jason Rosa, was sitting on the hood of the car, munching down on a slice.

The traffic agent asked Rosa to move his car but the motorist refused, claiming he wanted to finish eating his pizza first.

Setting aside diplomacy, the agent began writing his ticket, a move that outraged Rosa — so much so that he threw his half eaten slice at the city employee.

The slice hit the agent in the leg, ruining his wardrobe more than anything else.

But war had been declared. In response, the agent called police, who arrested Rosa for menacing, disorderly conduct and harassment.

Where: 7502 18th Avenue
