Between getting yelled at by Terrell Owens, watching his quarterbacks throw four interceptions in prime time, and now this, it’s been a bad week for Todd Haley.
Dallas Cowboys passing game coordinator Todd Haley is suing a suburban [Dallas] McDonald’s after claiming his wife and their family’s au pair found a dead rat in their salad. The lawsuit filed Thursday in state district court seeks $1.7 million in damages, The Dallas Morning News reported on its Web site.
In addition to Haley, who got in a well-publicized shouting match with Terrell Owens earlier this month, the suit was also filed on behalf of his wife, Christine, and the family’s live-in babysitter, Kathryn Kelley.
The dead rodent, believed to be a juvenile roof rat, was about 6 inches long and was found on its back with its mouth opened, Scott Casterline, a spokesman for the family, told The Associated Press.
He said the women didn’t find the rat until taking the salad home to eat, and that a manager from the McDonald’s “didn’t offer any comfort” after driving to their house to see the rodent. The suit was filed after the restaurant didn’t follow through on promises “to make things right,” he said. “The family needs closure,” Casterline told The Associated Press. “It came to a point where you have to draw a line.”
Of course, if Haley were held to the same standards as he holds minimum wage workers at Mickey-D’s, he’d have been sued for all the dropped passes, interceptions, and bizarre Red Zone play calling that he’s subjected Dallas Cowboys fans to this season. Where do we get our closure?
