(AP) -An Austin pizza parlor owner has filad an assault and battery suit against a man he alleges is Mike Battle, former New York Jets' defensive back. In the suit, Richard L. Landwchr seeks actual damages for medical and dental treatment and 510,000 exemplary damages for "malicious and calculated misconduct." Landwehr's suit alleges the assault took place at Big Daddy Pizza on July 4, 1970 when "the defendant and several companions entered and his companions promptly and loudly announced that Battle could whip everyone present." The suit alleges that the "defendant commenced to throw beer on several customers" and also used abusive language. Then, it concludes, "thc defendant set upon a customer whom he proceeded to knock about and beat turned on the plaintiff, knocked the plaintiff to thc floor and started kicking thc plaintiff in the head." Thc complaint further, alleges that the "assault and battery" was "executed in a cold and animalistic manner." Landwchr claimed he suffered a broken nose, a head cut lhat required stitches and other cuts and bruises on his mouth, face, head and body. Battle, a 6-foot-l. 175-pound Southern California product, was punt-return specialist for the Jets who was cut before the 1971 season began.
