Spurs’ Tony Parker sues NYC club over eye injury

San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker is suing a New York City

club and its operators for $20 million over a scratched cornea he

says he suffered during a fight involving singer Chris Brown and

members of hip-hop star Drake’s entourage.

The suit was filed in State Supreme Court in Manhattan on

Thursday. It says the W.i.P club in SoHo and its operators were

negligent in security and supervision, which allowed the fight to

take place.

Chris Brown, his girlfriend and his bodyguard were among eight

injured during the fight inside the club last week. Police say

members of Drake’s entourage stopped Brown as he was leaving. The

fight escalated and bottles were thrown.

There was no answer at phone numbers listed as affiliated with

those named in the lawsuit.
