This parking lot is clearly a danger to people who are falling-down drunk!

Councilman Joel Montgomery sues lot owner over 2007 fall-

Birmingham City Councilman Joel Montgomery has sued the owner of a parking lot where he said he fell last year, resulting in a broken nose, a fractured vertebra and a public intoxication arrest.

Montgomery’s suit said he was injured on April 7, 2007, when he was walking in Five Points South, did not see a wall and fell 3 feet to the pavement in a parking lot.

The suit contends J.H. Berry and Co., owner of the lot at 14th Avenue South and 20th Street, should have warned people about the danger.

Montgomery, of course, now says that he wasn’t drunk, he just “had a few drinks”. Yeah, that’s what they all say.
