Man hit in eye by a hot dog, suing Kansas City Royals

Friday, 01 November 2013 15:11 Published in Local News

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Missouri Supreme Court is weighing whether a legal standard that protects sports teams from being sued over fan injuries caused by in-game events should also apply to those caused by mascots or other team personnel.

The court's ruling on John Coomer's lawsuit against the Kansas City Royals could affect how major sports teams engage their fans during games.

Coomer says he was hit in the eye by a foil-wrapped hot dog thrown by the Royals' mascot four years ago. The Kansas man says he's had to endure two eye surgeries and that his vision was permanently damaged.

The team argues that it should be protected by the so-called "baseball rule." That legal standard holds that fans assume the risk of being struck by foul balls or stray pucks at games.

 

Hair extensions increasingly target of thieves

Friday, 01 November 2013 15:08 Published in Local News

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Hair extensions can be pricey, and beauty supply stores in the St. Louis region and elsewhere are increasingly being targeted by thieves.

Several St. Louis stores have been victimized over the past year, often by smash-and-grab thieves who smash a car into a store and get away with extensions.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that extensions made of human hair that hasn't been dyed or permed can run $100 to $250 per pack. They're small and easy to grab and have no codes or serial numbers that can be tracked.

Similar crimes have been reported in places like Las Vegas, Atlanta, Houston and Miami. A shop owner was killed at a Michigan salon in 2011, where 80 hair extensions worth about $10,000 were stolen.
