A pizza delivery driver is facing up to 18 years in jail after he was spotted spitting on a customer's order.
The 18-year-old, named by police as Burak S., was seen filming himself on his phone after he opened up a customer's pizza outside of their home and leaned over it smiling.
Prosecutors believe the teenager was filming himself spitting on the pizza before delivering it.
Burak S. is then said to have walked up to customer Huseyin Alyuz's fifth-floor flat, in the city of Eskisehir in north-western Turkey, to deliver the meal.
However, Mr Alyuz's nephew, Cagatay Ehe, saw the CCTV footage and quickly told his uncle, who then complained to the police and the pizza company.
Burak S. denies spitting on the pizza but has been sacked from his job and now faces serious charges which could see him jailed for an incredible 18 years.
He has gone on trial in a criminal court charged with 'endangering the lives of persons by putting poison or spoiling the food with other means' which carries a sentence of two to 15 years in prison.
And he also faces a consumer court charge of 'damaging goods and endangering customer's health' which carries a sentence of between four months and three years behind bars.
Burak S. told the criminal court that he did not spit on the pizza and had only opened the box to ensure it was not damaged as he had been in an accident enroute.
He said: "I found out that the person who ordered the pizza had cursed my colleague Aylin. I knew he was a problem customer.
"I opened the box of the pizza to check for any problems, to check whether the pizza was still intact.
"I took a picture of the pizza with my mobile phone and sent it to my friend Aylin. I absolutely did not spit when I opened the box."
However, Mr Alyuz told the court: "I called the pizza shop and ordered a pizza. It was a two-minute conversation and I did not curse anybody.
"The suspect delivered the pizza to me. I opened the box and took two slices of pizza. Cagatay Efe who lives in the same building, send me a text message saying 'do not eat the pizza'.
