A Cincinnati Bengals fan—though maybe not anymore—is suing the team and everyone else responsible for alcohol sales at Bengals games for injuries sustained when two drunk men fell on her, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Rebecca Dunn says the fans' tumble broke her nose and index finger, bruised her femur, jammed her toe, cracked her $700 glasses, and forced a cap to fall from her tooth.

The lawsuit claims that her medical bills are $20,000 and counting, and that the vendor should have stopped serving the men because they were "noticeably intoxicated." On the bright side for her, the Bengals beat the Steelers in the game. (More Cincinnati stories.)
