BEAUMONT – Academy Sports and Outdoors has been hit with a lawsuit seeking “at least” $1 million in damages for injuries a man allegedly suffered when a compound bow he was firing broke.

Brandon Parker filed the suit June 5 in Jefferson County District Court, also naming Bear Archery and Escalade Sports as defendants.

Judge Mitch Templeton, 172nd District Court, is assigned to the case.
