Washington, Apr 22 (ANI): Jamie Foxx has been sued by a bartender for ruining his ambitions to become a brain surgeon following the injuries he suffered while working at a party thrown by the actor.

The Ray star had organised a lavish bash at Social in Hollywood in 2007, where he hired William Presler to work behind the bar, made completely of ice, reports Contactmusic.

According to TMZ.com, in the papers filed at Los Angeles Superior Court, Presler claims that the guests at the event continually dropped their empty glasses around the bar.

He tried to sweep up the shattered glass, but was told to leave it by his manager.

The bar worker subsequently slipped and cut himself - requiring 170 stitches in his left hand in a bid to repair a severed nerves.

Presler, who was due to start a medical degree, says that he has been forced to abandon his ambitions to become a neuroscientist because of his injured hand. (ANI)
