Montrose club sued after bouncer allegedly slammed patron
A club-goer is suing after, he says, a bouncer at a Montrose-area bar attacked him.
Shaun Eckhardt filed a lawsuit on Friday, May 25 in the Harris County District Court against Roak on Kirby, in Montrose, citing assault, battery and negligence.
Eckhardt says on May 2, he sustained permanent and debilitating injuries when attacked by a bouncer at Roak on Kirby, located in the 3300 block of Kirby in Montrose.
The suit alleges the bouncer kicked Eckhardt out of the club after the valet lost his car keys. When Eckhardt returned to retrieve his keys, the bouncer allegedly charged at him and slammed his head into the building, which knocked him unconscious and split his skin, according to the brief.
Eckhardt claims the last thing he remembers is being transported by ambulance to Memorial Hermann Hospital.
The plaintiff is seeking damages and court costs. He is being represented in the case by Houston attorney Justin Strother.
