I almost fell out of my seat reading this article today. Freaking hilarious. Loses job, house and car? Debilitated shoulder, back problems? Mother of god. He may have thrown the largest most heavy chair I've ever heard.
During 75 minutes on the witness stand in a civil trial, Bob Murray said he pushed two chairs out of the way in his haste to leave the press box at Joe Louis Arena to go to his team's dressing room to console them after their big loss.
But he said he wasn't angry, and he wasn't aware that one of the chairs hit Rachel Paris, then 55, of Plymouth, a contract stage manager who says the episode left her with debilitating injuries that cost her her livelihood.
Attorney Steven Potter of Auburn Hills, who represents Murray and the Ducks, has told jurors the shoulder injury predated the incident at the arena.
Potter played surveillance video to the jury showing Paris filling a 2 1/2-gallon gas can, lifting it with her left arm into the back of her SUV and raising both arms high above her head to close the vehicle's hatchback.
