This is a pretty AMAZING lawsuit . . . because it's something you could NEVER even dream up.
Alan Beck is a little league coach and a chiropractor in Roseville, California. And he just filed a half-million-dollar lawsuit . . . against one of his 14-YEAR-OLD PLAYERS.
According to the suit, the kid was running toward home plate last spring to score the winning run in a game, and threw off his helmet in celebration . . . just like the pros do when they're coming home on a game-winning home run.
But the kid's helmet randomly hit Alan in the leg. And somehow it tore his Achilles tendon.
So now he's suing the kid for $500,000 for pain and suffering, and $100,000 for lost wages and medical bills. And California law DOES allow people to sue kids.
The kid is named in the lawsuit but his father asked the media not to use his name. Although the father's name is Joe Paris.
A family's homeowner's insurance policy might cover the suit . . . but Joe says he doesn't have homeowner's insurance. The case goes to a judge in March. (NBC 3 - Sacramento)
