GRETNA – A Lafourche Parish man is suing two men for injuries he claims he received in a fight in the parking lot of a sports bar.

Chjet F. Toups filed suit against Craing Pizani and Wayne Cheramie in the 24th Judicial District Court on June 12.

Toups claims he exited the establishment with his cousin Dew Legrande and was walking across the parking lot at Artie's Sportd Bar in Grand Isle when Pizani struck Legrande in the face. The plaintiff alleges he stepped in between the two and was also struck in the face by Pizani and afterward by Cheramie and three other unidentified people. Toups asserts he received permanent disabling injuries in the fight.

The defendant is accused of acting in a invasive manner of conduct, desiring physical contact, intending to inflict harmful damage, committing intentional battery, acting in an extreme and outrageous manner, infliction of severe emotional distress and acting in an intolerable manner in a civilized community.

An unspecified amount in damages is sought for medical expenses, pain and suffering, mental anguish, disfigurement and disability and loss of enjoyment of life.

Toups is representing himself.

The case has been assigned to Division D Judge Robert M. Murphy.

Case number 715-818.
