Man Claims His Genitals Were Burned By Urinal In Arby's

MONUMENT, Colo. (CBS4) - An Aurora man is upset with an Arby's restaurant and has filed a lawsuit after he said he was badly burned by the store's urinal.

The incident allegedly happened two years ago at the Arby's in Monument, but the man just filed the bizarre lawsuit against the restaurant.

Kenneth Dejoie claims his genitals were badly burned while using this urinal inside the store's men's room.

The five-page lawsuit was filed in El Paso County District Court on May 25. The lawsuit claims that Dejoie was "utilizing the urinal in the men's restroom when it caused a jet of steam to shoot forth from the urinal and burn his genitals."

Dejoie claims he reported the incident to an employee who, according to the lawsuit claimed "we have that bathroom problem again," and "this happens when the sink in the kitchen is running."

Dejoie's lawyers told CBS4 he's trying to settle the case with Arby's outside of court and couldn't comment further.

The lawsuit claims Dejoie is seeking damages for financial losses and as a result of his injuries not being able to have sex with his wife.

The store manager hadn't heard about the lawsuit. A spokesperson for the company issued a statement saying, "We want to reassure our customers that we are committed to providing quality food in a safe and healthy environment. Since this matter is in litigation we've been advised by our attorney that we are unable to discuss."

Dejoie's lawyer did not specify exactly how much they're hoping to settle for or why it took two years for them to file the suit.
