Charger Running Back In Legal Trouble

TAMPA, Fla. -- A Florida man is suing San Diego Chargers running back Michael Bennett and a former Tampa Bay teammate, saying they attacked him at an International House of Pancakes.

Brian Gordon says Bennett, offensive lineman Anthony Davis and another man assaulted him in the restaurant parking lot in Tampa on Oct. 13.

Gordon's attorney said his client suffered skull and jaw fractures. Gordon is also suing the restaurant chain, saying there wasn't adequate security.

Davis' attorney declined comment. It wasn't clear whether Bennett had a lawyer.
The Bucs released both players this season.  A spokesman for IHOP commented on restaurant security but not on Gordon's allegations.

Bennett was picked up this year from the Buccaneers.
