Cola Wars Get Physical in Pa.

Clearly These Guys Don't Need Any More Caffeine

By Published on .

Talk about Cola Wars. You can't make this stuff up.

Things allegedly got heated between a Coke and a Pepsi delivery guy behind a western Pennsylvania Wal-Mart last week. The men started "bickering back and forth" while unloading.

But when the Coke guy decided to walk, the Mr. Pepsi popped him a few times, allegedly breaking the man's nose and giving him (and his own employer) a black eye.

Trooper John Fisanich of the Pennsylvania Police Department said both men were charged with disorderly conduct and harassment as a result of the incident. One of them was also charged with simple assault.

Pepsi, Coke and Wal-Mart didn't immediately return calls for comment.
