Lowering the Bar has a post detailing a negligence claim against the Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity and one of its drunken frat boy members. Shortly, the plaintiff was injured after the drunken ATO member attempted to fire a bottle rocket out of his backside, but it exploded instead, startling the plaintiff, who fell off an unrailed deck and injured himself. Don’t believe me? Go check out the complaint here.
I’ve never heard of “bottle rockets” before. I thought initially it was a rocket made out of a soft drink bottle (and was somewhat mystified as to how this could be launched from one’s bottom? or explode?) but I’m presuming here it is used to mean any kind of small-scale skyrocket attached to a stick.
As Lowering the Bar notes, the claim does not detail whether the drunken frat boy was himself injured by his activity. One presumes that surely he was a little burned? Yowch.
