Lawsuit: Man Partially Blinded At OC Medieval Times

SANTA ANA (AP) — A man claims he was partially blinded while watching a swordfight on his honeymoon at the Medieval Times restaurant in Orange County after a flaming shard of metal struck his eye.

In a lawsuit announced Tuesday, Dustin Wiseman and his wife Melissa say they were in front-row seats at the Buena Park restaurant in 2011 while performers had a sword fight in front of them.

The honeymooners from South Dakota say they were eating their dinner when a shard flew into Dustin’s eye, tearing his cornea, injuring his retina and ultimately blinding his left eye.

The lawsuit seeks millions of dollars in damages.

A call to Medieval Times seeking comment Tuesday afternoon was not immediately returned.
