Man sues restaurant claiming injury from tossed roll
OZARK (AP) - A Missouri-based restaurant chain known as the "Home of the Throwed Rolls" is being sued after a man claimed that one of the tossed rolls caused damage to his eye.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 68-year-old Troy Tucker of St. Louis is seeking $35,000 in damages from Lambert's Cafe.
At Lambert's, employees toss rolls across the room to customers. Tucker claims he was dining at Lambert's Sikeston restaurant on Sept. 20 when he was hit by a roll, causing what his suit calls a "serious and permanent personal injury," specifically, a lacerated cornea.
Lambert's general manager declined comment.
In addition to the Sikeston location, Lambert's operates in Ozark, Missouri, and Foley, Alabama.
