    NH Couple Claims Demeter's Steakhouse Over-Served Drunk Man in Assault

    A New Hampshire couple has filed a lawsuit against a Portsmouth restaurant saying it over-served an intoxicated patron who attacked the husband and gave him a concussion.

    The Portsmouth Herald reports the Vrettoses say in their lawsuit Demeter's Steakhouse was negligent in continuing to serve Derek Malila Jan. 30. They are also suing Malila for assault and battery and emotional distress.

    The Vrettoses claim Malila grabbed Theodore Vrettos and threw him to the ground in an assault "completely unprovoked."

    Theodore Vrettos was later diagnosed with a concussion.
