Happy Hour: Wanna Get Away?

  • Metro is looking for a way out of paying the $250,000 they owe to a man who was injured by a Public Works employee’s horseplay. The employee was trying to give a pedestrian a scare while driving a giant bulldozer and the pedestrian was startled enough that he leapt over a guard rail and hurt himself pretty badly. Metro was found to be at fault. [Tennessean]
