Attorney: $4.3 Million Award For Fan Stabbed In Red Sox Dispute

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) _ An attorney for a 45-year-old man says a Connecticut jury awarded him $4.3 million after he was stabbed through the neck at a restaurant by a patron who harassed him about being a Red Sox fan.

Timothy Pothin said the jury in New Haven reached the verdict Thursday in favor of Monte Freire of Nashua,

New Hampshire, and against U.S.S. Chowder Pot III in Branford. Pothin said bartenders ignored warnings that the patron was harassing customers and trying to start a fight and continued to serve him alcohol.

Pothin said Freire suffered life altering injuries, including a brain injury and severe scarring. The patron, John Mayor, was convicted of assault and is serving a 10-year prison sentence.

A message left with the restaurant’s attorney was not immediately returned.
