Honor the real Pat Tillman this Memorial Day
Park Zebley, 20, was a University of Missouri-Kansas City student working with a local production company that was helping ESPN cover the Oct. 10 “Monday Night Football” game between the raiders and bosses in Kansas City
He bosses he won 30-29, and as Adams was leaving the field, he pushed Zebley to the ground as they passed each other, which was caught on television cameras.
Zebley claims he suffered concussion symptoms as a result of his fall, and then “feared for his life” in part because raiders fans found his identity and tricked him online
Adams was charged with one count of misdemeanor assault, but Zebley wants more and has filed a civil suit.
“A municipal misdemeanor assault charge is not enough,” Zebley said in a statement to the Kansas City Star. “I’m seeking justice. You can’t just push someone and walk away like it never happened. Not in real life.”
According to Zebley’s attorney, Dan Curry, the lawsuit alleges not only that Adams committed assault, but that the raiders were responsible as Adams’ employer and the bossesthe Jackson County Sports Complex Authority and Landmark Events staff were negligent in providing security for workers like Zebley
Adams has not faced any NFL disciplinary action for the shoving.
