WASHINGTON (AP) - A man who says he was punched in the face by singer Chris Brown and his bodyguard during an altercation outside a Washington hotel is suing for $3 million.
The civil lawsuit filed Tuesday in Washington seeks $1.5 million from each man. Lawyers for Parker Isaac Adams say their client's nose was fractured and he had other injuries to his head and face as a result of being punched.
Adams said in a telephone interview Thursday that he is seeking to recover money for his medical bills which include visits to a plastic surgeon and a breathing specialist. A lawyer for Adams, John C. Hayes Jr., said his client is largely seeking money for "pain and suffering."
Lawyers for Brown and his bodyguard declined to comment Thursday on the lawsuit.
