Lawsuit filed in case of man killed after leaving Halloween party

Posted: Updated:

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- The family of a man who died after being struck by an alleged drunk driver after a Halloween party last year has filed a lawsuit against the driver of the car and the organizers of the party.

Beau Froehlich was crossing Folly Road Oct. 23, 2011, when he was struck by a car driven by Matthew Reid Fisher. Fisher was later arrested and charged with drunk driving. 

Froehlich later died at the Medical University of South Carolina.

A wrongful death lawsuit filed recently by Froehlich's family states that the organizers of the Halloween party, Skinful LLC, should not have continued to serve Fisher alcohol at the party.

The lawsuit names Skinful, the estate of Fisher and Skinful owner Brian King as defendants.

Attorneys for the defense, in a response filed last week, said they had no knowledge of Fisher's intoxication at the party. Lawyers also denied Skinful was negligent.
