Drunk CNN TV reporter sued for biting rage

Cape Town – CNN is being sued for $1m after the CNN International (DStv 401) correspondent Arwa Damon (pictured above), allegedly drunk and biting, attacked medics at the American embassy in Bagdad, Iraq in a drunken, violent-fuelled rage.

According to reports the CNN International correspondent allegedly has a “history of becoming intoxicated and then abusive” and attacked medics in a drunken rage while they were trying to provide medical assistance during a drunken altercation at the American embassy in Baghdad.

That is according to a bizarre lawsuit that was filed in New York on Monday by Charles Simons and Tracy Lamar, working as emergency medics.

According to the law suit Arwa Damon started biting Lamar.

The lawsuit claims that the CNN International correspondent allegedly has “a penchant for violence even when sober”.

Human bites highly infectious

Simons and Lamar are suing CNN for $1m for “suffering severe and permanent personal injuries, including a bite to the left forearm, injury to the knees, elbows and other parts of the body; fear of infection from a human bite which is highly infectious; cosmetic deformity; pain and suffering; mental anguish and distress; emotional injuries”.
