A Boston Red Sox fan that was stabbed through his neck by a New York Yankees fan at a restaurant in 2010 has been awarded with $4.3 million by a jury. The New Haven, Conn. jury reached their verdict on Thursday in favor of Monte Freire and against U.S.S. Chowder Pot III, the restaurant in Branford, Conn. where Freire was harassed and attacked by Yankees fan, John Mayor.

According to Freire's attorney Timothy Pothin, bartenders at the restaurant ignored warnings that Mayor was harassing patrons and attempting to start fights while continuing to serve Mayor alcohol. Freire, 45, suffered a brain injury, a stroke and impaired speech and vision with several scars.

Mayor was convicted of assault is currently serving a 10-year sentence. Mayor told Freire that, based on his Boston accent, that he wasn't welcome in the restaurant because it was "Yankees territory." Mayor continued to harass Freire and his friends before the unprovoked attack that resulted in Freire's life-altering injuries.
