MANATEE, Fla. (AP) -- A 73-year-old Bradenton-area man who
crashed his motorized scooter after too many drinks is suing the bar that served him.

The Bradenton Herald reports John Wasko of Manatee filed a
lawsuit this week against The Oasis, saying the bar should have stopped giving him drinks.

He's seeking more than $15,000 in compensation.

Bar owner Brenda Cays said she's unaware of the lawsuit but that her staff stops serving when necessary.

She says she's driven patrons home and paid for taxis for drunk customers.

The suit stems from a January 18th incident.

Wasko was riding home on his scooter when he was struck by a vehicle.

He blames injuries from the accident on the bar.

Bradenton Police cited him for walking in the path of a vehicle.
