Phanatic Named In Lawsuit
Philly’s favorite mascot had a major Phoul-up when he allegedly threw a woman and her poolside chair into a hotel pool resulting in a lawsuit filed on Monday.
The incident reportedly took place in July 2010. “During his comic routine, the Phillie Phanatic approached plaintiff, picked up her chair and threw plaintiff and her chair into the pool,” the lawsuit states.
The woman says she now suffers from permanent injuries, and the Phillies are at fault, she argues. This isn’t the Phanatic’s first bout with the law — it was previously sued for hugging a fan too hard.
