London, November 3 (ANI): Hard rock band Bon Jovi has been sued for 250,000 pounds by a Brit woman, who claims that one of the groups staff purposely ran a golf buggy over her at a concert.
Sally Allen, a security supervisor, alleged that she had tried to prevent Kevin McDonnell, from entering the back-stage area after a fire broke out at the Milton Keynes concert in 2006, reports the Telegraph.
She further claimed that McDonnell had said: I don”t care about your emergency situation. Get out of my way, you f***ing whore. Do you know who I am? You can”t f***ing stop me.”
The 37-year-old added that McDonnell then purportedly ran the cart over her, leaving her with a fractured knee, ligament damage, and severe internal injuries.
Allen, who was hospitalised for almost a week and has been unable to work post incident, said that her injuries had devastated her sex life leaving her depressed, according to reports.
Meanwhile, the New Jersey based group has denied the allegation that the band had been unable to train or control McDonnell and added: “Mrs Allen’’s claim concerns injuries she states occurred at a Bon Jovi show.
“None of the band members were present when she blocked the pathway of a crew member, nor were they aware of any disturbance at the time. (ANI)
