A man from Clinton County, Illinois who alleges that he sustained personal injuries as a result of a customer of Hurricane’s Bar & Grill in Collinsville, Illinois stabbing him in the chest and torso a year ago has filed suit against the attacker and the bar for damages in excess of $100,000.

According to the complaint filed by Douglas Murphy, St. Clair County, Illinois resident Michael Alstat drank in excess of 15 beers before attacking him several times on July 29 of last year. The complaint was filed in the Circuit Court of St. Clair County on July 28.

Murphy claims that co-defendant Hurricane’s allowed Alstat to become “extremely” intoxicated. Timothy Johnson, the owner of the bar, has also been named as a defendant.

Murphy also alleges that Alstat attempted to run him over with a vehicle at the attack site, a Belleville, Illinois White Castle Restaurant.

According to the complaint, the attack caused Murphy to sustain “severe and permanent injuries” to the lung and organs inside the chest cavity. Murphy claims the injuries caused him to incur more than $60,000 in medical expenses.
