Spurs' Tony Parker sues NYC club over eye injury

Spurs' Tony Parker sues NYC club over eye injury
Updated 07:28 p.m., Thursday, June 21, 2012





NEW YORK (AP) — San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker is suing a New York City club and its operators for $20 million over a scratched retina he says he suffered during a fight involving singer Chris Brown and members of hip-hop star Drake's entourage.

The suit was filed in State Supreme Court in Manhattan on Thursday. It says the W.i.P club in SoHo and its operators were negligent in security and supervision, which allowed the fight to take place.

Chris Brown, his girlfriend and his bodyguard were among eight injured during the fight inside the club last week. Police say members of Drake's entourage stopped Brown as he was leaving. The fight escalated and bottles were thrown.

There was no answer at phone numbers listed as affiliated with those named in the suit.

A scratched retina? That's not only pretty serious, but pretty unlikely. Glass punctures the cornea, enters the pupil and then completes the journey through the eye.
Next day the player says he'll be out a week.

Scratched cornea seems a bit more likely.

Edit: got to love the AP for their Will-ish like verification before publication.

He'll get squat.
Scratched cornea is nothing more than a couple days rest, unless there are complications.
No complications, go heal and stop bothering my court.

Drake is a clown man lol, goon squad? Maybe some body guards, but dude is one of the biggest fakes in the game in it seems like forever in a game FULL of fakes! Drake was probably nowhere near this at all, probably ran off to his limo.

CORRECTION FROM AP: Corrects site of injury to cornea, not retina.

His posse does not have the cash like Drake does.........so still sue Drake and his bottle throwing spinless flaming friends. TP wants 20 million? The club is closed down and Drake's friends will not have anywhere close to that kind of money. Drake is a b*tch just like KatySpermfan on here!
