Benny the Bull Gets Sued

Tuesday, April 29, 2008

Benny the Bull, the Chicago Bulls' mascot, is being sued after a failed attempt to give a high five. On February 12th, Dr. Don Kalant was sitting courtside when he raised his arm to get a high five when the mascot grabbed his arm as he fell forward.

The dentist stayed for the rest of the game with a hyperextended arm and a ruptured bicep muscle. Because of these injuries the dentist could miss as much as four months of work and has had to have surgery.

Kalant is suing Barry Anderson, who wears the mascot uniform, for being negligent and "running out of control" through the crowd. The New Orleans Hornets defeated the Chicago Bulls 100 - 86 that night.
