Case Dismissed After Fight at Pizza Parlor Leads to Fractured Finger
Fight at your local pizza parlor. My client was charged with battery and drunk in public. The alleged victim was hurt in the fight. He suffered a fractured middle finger. The alleged victim's pre-surgery medical bills totaled over $2,800. In order to fully repair the fractured finger – surgery to the tune of $15,000 was allegedly required. So, obviously, restitution was a huge issue. My client could not afford to pay $15,000 to the alleged victim in medical bills. We set the case for trial. End result? Case dismissed.
