Local screenwriter Aaron Schnore is suing midtown tourist trap Johnny Utah's after a May 7th ride on the tavern's mechanical bull (pictured) left him with "serious" injuries (beyond his shattered dignity). Lawyers say the operator of the bull should not have allowed an inebriated Schnore on the bull in the first place, and they also accuse him of making the bull buck too hard. Attorney Lawrence Saftler tells the Daily News, "[The operator] pumped it up until he could throw him. That to us is an assault and battery." To others, that's called a mechanical bull. Schnore is seeking an unspecified sum, but no amount of money will change the fact that now the whole world knows he hangs out at Johnny Utah's.
