JUICY SUITS: Man Wearing Turban Claims Assault at Old Town Night Club

A man who claims he was assaulted by security personnel while dancing at a night club in Old Town is suing the venue, Dirty, which is owned by Vegasstars LLC, according to an Oct. 14 lawsuit filed in Multnomah County Circuit Court.

Tushar Singh claims that security personnel forced his head onto a dancing platform, causing a deep cut that resulted in 30 stitches. Singh was wearing a turban at the time of the incident.

Singh, the suit says, also "suffered permanent scarring, head trauma, and resulting anxiety." 

He is seeking $530,000 to cover medical expenses and non-economic damages. 

Singh's attorney, Lake James Perriguey, told WW that he watched the security video with Singh and Dirty's owner, Chris Lenahan, a few days after the incident.

"The video speaks for itself," said Perriguey. "He was just walking behind one of the security people. It was pretty clear that he wasn't being escorted anywhere."
