Tony Parker sues club for $20 million after injury in Chris Brown-Drake fight

Friday June 22nd, 2012

San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker is suing the owners of SoHo nightclub W.i.P for $20 million after he suffered a "corneal laceration of the left eye and other injuries" as a bystander at the Chris Brown-Drake bottle-throwing fight last week, according to the New York Post.

The lawsuit, filed in Manhattan Supreme Court on Thursday, does not name Brown or Drake, but holds the club responsible for allowing the two into the same space.

"The defendants were reckless, careless and negligent in permitting Drake’s entourage and Brown’s entourage to be in the club at the same time despite known tension between the two."
