Benny (the Bull) gets sued!
Benny the Bull, the scarlet-furred symbol of my childhood loyalty to the Chicago Bulls, is being sued for a high-five gone quite wrong.
I wish I could tell you that the Bulls' mascot accidentally grabbed someone's butt upon missing their hand, but alas, Benny What??? He's not a bull? There's a real person underneath named Barry Anderson? grabbed the arm of oral surgeon Don Kalant at a Feb. 12 basketball game. Anderson was falling forward in this action, hyperextending the doc's arm and rupturing his bicep, according to the lawsuit.
Kalant wants unspecified damages for hospital bills, pain and the four months of work he'll has to miss for his injury. All poor Benny wanted was someone to break his fall.
