Family of man killed in tailgating fight sues 6

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - The family of a man killed in a fight outside of Williams-Brice Stadium after a South Carolina football game is suing the people who invited the man convicted in the killing to a tailgating party and the owners of the place where the party took place.

The State newspaper reports ( ) the lawsuit filed by the family of Martin Gasque (GAS-kwee) names six defendants. Gasque was run over by a truck after fighting a fan in October 2010 after South Carolina beat Alabama.

The lawyer who filed the suit, Doug Jennings, wants a jury to hold the people who threw the party responsible for what happened just like a bar that serves too many drinks to someone involved in a drunken driving crash.

The defendants say Gasque is responsible for his own drinking.
