Spray-painting a rivals pizzeria can only lead to bad things.

The manager of an Extreme Pizza in San Rafael, who is suspected of spraying graffiti on neighboring Pizza Orgasmica with a former co-worker, lost his job a day after he was fired.

The owners of Pizza Orgasmica in San Rafael upset neighbors last month when they decided to paint their new restaurant yellow and green to celebrate an expanded menu, which included Brazilian food.

Thursday, Timothy Tucker, the manager of Extreme Pizza, and a co-worker allegedly decided to improve the paint job. The two were arrested on suspicion of spray-painting messages such as "go home" on the building.

Jeff Miller, the owner of Extreme Pizza, told the San Francisco Chronicle that he fired Tucker from his manager role for his alleged involvement in the graffiti incident.

The owner said Tucker was a good employee, who never showed up late or hung over.
