To make matters worse, the guy who he attacked was a prominent attorney in the DA's office and sued for millions. It turned into an expensive mess with Torts exiled to Rochester. Muckler anointed him as his successor but he was overruled and the Sabres went with someone less controversial in Ted Nolan.
Wait a second... Torts slapped a guy in a wheelchair?
Can you provide documentation? Not saying I don't believe you, I'd just really like to read more about this.
