Joe Namath sued

AP: A former UPS driver has sued Joe Namath, alleging he was attacked by the Hall of Fame quarterback’s dogs while making a delivery at his Florida home.

Attorneys for David Gunter say he hasn’t been able to work since the 2007 incident in Tequesta, about 90 miles north of Miami. Lawyer Steven Slootsky says Gunter required four surgeries after suffering injuries to his neck, back and knee.

The lawsuit was filed last week in West Palm Beach’s Circuit Court.

Namath’s attorney did not immediately respond to e-mails and telephone messages.

Gunter isn’t the only one to have problems with Namath’s dogs.

Complaints have been filed against two of them, and one was ordered last month to be muzzled and leashed full-time.

    I know Joe and his agent/attorney Jimmy Walsh. I don’t understand Jimmy allowing this case to go on this long? Ole Joe needs to pay up….unless there is a good reason his dogs harmed that postal worker!

    If they’re running free then that’s a problem. But if the yard is fenced then I’d tell the guy he shoulda kept his ass out of my yard. UPS has no right to enter a gate to knock on a door. They are required to return the package to the office, leave a notice in the mailbox and call the number that is on every waybill. If he entered a fenced yard with dogs inside and without being asked to come in, well that’s just tough shit and stupid!
