HOUSTON – An evening at a bar along the city’s Washington Corridor earlier this month ended in an assault on a patron, according to a lawsuit filed on Dec 21 in the Harris County 125th District Court.
Houston resident Luis Carmona faults 5110 Washington LLC, doing business as Lincoln Bar, for one of its security personnel attacking him last Dec. 2.
Carmona claims the worker, whose name is reportedly Jordash Sparks, attempted to take his drink away without any given reason. According to the original petition, Sparks then began beating the plaintiff.
After a short chase around the bar, the suit says, Sparks put Carmona in a headlock and gouged both of the complainant’s eyes.
The purported manager of the establishment requested Carmona refrain from calling the police and promised to cover future tabs, to which he refused, court documents add.
Consequently, the plaintiff seeks unspecified monetary damages.
He is represented by attorneys James R. Edwards and Jeffrey R. McCarthy of the law firm McCarthy & Edwards PLLC in Houston.
