An 82-year-old Texas woman has filed a lawsuit against Red Lobster accusing the seafood restaurant chain of over-serving her alcohol to the point she fell and broke her hip.
According to the civil complaint filed in Harris County on Monday, local resident Marlene Spencer was injured after dining at the Red Lobster location on Bay Area Boulevard in Webster in late March.
The lawsuit claims that the octogenarian weighing just 113-pounds had a blood alcohol level of 0.31 – or nearly four times the legal limit for driving in Texas – when she walked out of the restaurant heading home at a assisted living facility.
Fishy business: Marlene Spencer, 82, has filed a lawsuit against Red Lobster, saying this location in Webster, Texas, had over-served her alcohol to the point she fell and broke her hip
Spencer lost her balance and collapsed to the ground in the parking lot of the Red Lobster in Webster, breaking her right hip and right arm, according to the suit obtained by Chron.com.
She was taken to Clear Lake Regional Hospital, where she had to undergo a hip replacement.
The lawsuit alleges that Spencer’s daughter had previously asked the management at the Red Lobster, located not far from the Brookdale Senior Living Cener where her mother lives, not to over-serve the elderly woman.
‘This was an ongoing problem that Ms Spencer’s daughter tried to quell, but to no avail,’ the complaint says. ‘This has been a recurring problem with multiple Brookdale residents.’
