: "PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. — Lionel Tate (search), the youngest person in modern U.S. history to be sentenced to life in prison (search), has been arrested after a pizza delivery man said the teenager pointed a gun at him.
Tate, now 18, was being held early Tuesday at the Broward County Jail (search) on charges of armed robbery and armed burglary with battery. He was serving probation following his release on a guilty plea to second-degree murder in the beating death of a 6-year-old family friend when he was 12.
Tate called in a pizza order Monday from a friend's apartment and pointed a gun at the delivery man when he arrived, said Broward sheriff's spokeswoman Elizabeth Calzadilla-Fiallo. The man dropped the pizzas and called police after returning to the restaurant."
