Florida man sues two former Tampa football players

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - A Florida man is suing two former Tampa Bay
Buccaneers players, saying they attacked him at an International
House of Pancakes restaurant in Tampa nearly three months ago.

Brian Gordon says he was at an IHOP on Oct. 13, 2008, when an
intoxicated Anthony Davis began yelling profanities at restaurant
employees.

Later, Davis, Michael Bennett and a third man allegedly
attacked him the parking lot.

Gordon's attorney says his client sustained skull and jaw
fractures.

He is also suing IHOP and Sunshine Restaurant Merger Sub, LLC, saying employees failed to intervene and provide adequate
security.

An attorney for Davis declined to comment.

It was not immediately clear whether Bennett had retained counsel.

A spokesman for IHOP wouldn't comment on the specific
allegations.
