The Social Host Made Me Do It

Posted By CotoBlogzz October 16,  2008 11:01 AM

Shannon Hyman, an underage drinker at the time this incident took place,  is suing the Green Iguana Bar & Grill after the bar served her a "flaming shot" of Bacardi 151 proof rum - she got scared of the flames, spit it out and she then burned herself from her chest to the top of her head, according to the Tampa Tribune.

Hyman is seeking more than $15,000 in damages, according court documents.

The Tribune quotes Hyman as saying: "I'm suing because I should not have been let in. If I weren't let in, none of the events would have happened."

Hyman’sr father, an insurance executive, has allegedly, been trying to work with the Green Iguana for months for some type of reasonable settlement.

What happened to personal responsibility?
