The Blackhawks have had some bad luck this season with off the ice distractions, at times through no fault of their own, and according to a report from TMZ Sports the Blackhawks now have to deal with another headache.
According to the report John Cooke, a Blackhawks fan, is suing the team after they failed to remove a heavily intoxicated member of the crowd despite several complaints, eventually leading to an injury in a ridiculous scenario.
More from TMZ Sports:
The fan says people complained about the drunkard to security and arena staff -- but no one did anything.
Problem is ... when the Blackhawks scored a goal in the 1st period, the drunk fan lost his balance and fell down 2 rows, allegedly crushing Cooke in the process.
It's unclear how much money Cooke is looking for, and although fans are warned of the risks they take when attending a game, Cooke's case of a drunkard falling on him from two rows up has to be considered out of the norm.
