Man Punches Pole! Then Sues Pole! (Actually, He Sues Dave & Buster's.)
Dave & Buster's, world-headquartered on Manana Drive, has a lawsuit with which to contend courtesy of a Detroit man who claims he injured himself whilst playing a video game in Utica, Michigan. Name of the game? MoCap Boxing, which, as you can see, is bracketed by a couple of poles.
Only, claims the dude, in 2005 he accidentally hit a third pole -- one that was actually part of the D&B, which, says the suit, "caused and allowed the hazardous condition to exist on its premises for an unreasonably long period of time." Like Gerald Ford, I believe the Poles are an independent and autonomous people. --Robert Wilonsky
