Phillie Phanatic Sued for Tossing Fan Into a Pool

by at . Comments

The Phillie Phanatic might be the most beloved mascot in all of sports. The guy is really just about having fun.

But try telling that to Suzanne Peirce. This Abington, Pennsylvania native is suing the fuzzy green monster (below, left) for injuries she suffered in 2010 when the Phanatic picked up Peirce's lounge chair and tossed her into a pool.

The incident took place at The Golden Inn, a hotel in Avalon, New Jersey, and the lawsuit alleges "severe and permanent injuries" to the victim as a result of the Phanatic's "various antics."

A spokesperson for the Phillies says the team stands by its representative, believing the Phanatic did not engage in any wrongful activity.

The same, however, cannot be said for the Philadelphia offense, whose woeful production is largely response for the team's last-place standing in the National League East.
