Gentleman wins $5.5 million lawsuit against bar for allowing him to get drunk and fight other customers
Who wants to be a millionaire? It’s easy! Just get stinking drunk in a bar and brawl with customers in the parking. Daniel Rawls did and he made $5.5 million!
From Oddity Central:
Daniel Rawls claims that after drinking at the La Fogata restaurant, in Andrews, [Texas] on May 21, 2019, he and another patron, Robert Henrickson, got into an altercation in the parking lot of the restaurant. As a result, Rawls suffered head injuries that his lawyer claimed could have been avoided if the restaurant hadn’t continued serving alcohol to both men, who were visibly inebriated. In the complaint, La Fogata’s owner and bartender were accused of allowing the two men to drink excessively and leave the restaurant together, as well as not calling an ambulance after Rawls was injured.
According to MRT, Rawls was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated earlier this month and “was previously charged with public intoxication in February 2019 and May of this year.” It is not yet known how much money heRawlswill make from these incidents, but I’ll bet it’s a tidy sum indeed.
