At this point, we don’t know what police officers did to talk down a potential jumper from the Ravenel Bridge earlier today, but some thanks might go to an Andolini’s pizza.

“They had called us up at like 10:15 this morning, a little bit before we opened, and asked how long it would take to get a pizza,” A.J., the manager at Andolini’s Mt. Pleasant, says. He had a pepperoni pie ready for them in about 20 minutes, but the officers didn’t come in to collect it until 11:30 a.m.

A few hours later, customers started coming in and talking about the pizza, which was displayed prominently in a photo that ran with a Post and Courier story. A.J. didn’t even know what the incident was about until then.
With the traffic, it was a slow morning for Andolini’s, but A.J. says they got a pop around 12 p.m. once things on the bridge started clearing up. Now there are people coming into the restaurant with pizza cravings after seeing the P&C photo.
