Man Tossed Out of Orland Park Bar Sues for $150,000

Matthew Mueller of Chicago says he was injured when staff at Jordan's Pub & Eatery ejected him from the bar, into a fence outside.

A Chicago man says he was injured when staff at an Orland Park pub picked him up, carried him out and threw him into a fence outside. 

Matthew Mueller visited Jordan’s Pub and Eatery—now the Ale House Grill—at 13500 S. Harlem Ave. on July 7, 2012. In a lawsuit seeking $150,000 in damages, Mueller alleges that he was "fatigued and drowsy" when staff asked him to leave. But he "apparently apparently did not move quickly enough to the satisfaction of said employee,” and the employee “lifted and carried” Mueller toward the front door, Sun-Times Media reports. 

Mueller claims the employee than threw him out the door, onto a thick metal fence a few feet from the door. The incident caused Mueller pain, disability and lost wages, the three-count suit claims. 

Mueller says he’s suffered from pain, disability and lost wages. The Cook County Circuit Court claims battery, negligent hiring and negligence, according to the report.

Tired and fatigued? Most likely drunk and disorderly. Thrown against or into a fence? Probably stumbling and falling into a fence. Was he tired or passed out? I seriously doubt that any establishment would remove someone for being tired.

Tired or drunk, abuse is abuse, wrong is wrong. No one has the right to put their hands on another person in an aggressive manner. This bar has a history of disorderly conduct as well as abuse and assault from employees.

I'm not as quick to believe him as Jacob and I would need to see some links as I don't recall reading about any previous complaints.

Of course he sues. Doesn't everyone now a days? Anything to not have to work on your own and scam some money. I don't have all the facts but with simply going by the article it sounds like a bunch of crap.
