Iowa student sues bar over alleged beating

Posted:

IOWA CITY (KWWL) - A University of Iowa student who claims he was severely beaten by employees of a downtown bar is suing.

Terry Yin filed a lawsuit in Johnson County District Court last week against The Summit Restaurant and Bar, Inc., and two of the bar's employees.

Yin, a 26-year-old PhD biology student, claims he was punched and kicked by an employee who then knocked him to the ground. He says that employee continued to assault him and another employee joined in on the alleged attack.

In the lawsuit, Yin is seeking compensation for damages suffered in the incident, as well as legal fees.

The owner of the bar, Mike Porter, said early Monday that he wasn't aware of the lawsuit.
