Henley's Maraca Leads to Lawsuit
Ex-Eagle Don Henley is being sued by a concert-goer who claims that a flying maraca -- which left Henley's grasp -- knocked her on the forehead during his Oct. 4 performance in North Little Rock, Ark. Mary Ann Haley, 43, a self-professed longtime Henley fan, claims in her lawsuit that the alleged mishap occurred when she stood up to take Henley's photograph (with a flash attachment, which Henley criticized before the crowd). She now seeks unspecified damages for "physical injury . . . highly unpleasant mental reactions including fright, horror, disappointment, chagrin, worry, disgrace, embarrassment, indignity, ridicule, grief, shame, humiliation, anger and outrage," according to her suit. Pulaski County Prosecutor Larry Jegley tells the Associated Press that the case may not proceed, calling the lawsuit "not the silliest thing I've heard this year, but it's definitely in the top 10."
