Man Sues Comedy Club Over Car Raffle
Chad Johnson Dashes Ticket Holder's Hopes


NEWPORT, Ky. -- The Funny Bone comedy club in Newport is facing a lawsuit over a car raffle it was supposed to hold.

The club's Web site advertised that Cincinnati Bengals star Chad Johnson would give away a brand new Lexus to one lucky winner who bought a raffle ticket. The club sold 300 tickets -- 20 to Thom Monahan, who has filed the lawsuit.

But on the night of the raffle drawing, Johnson took to the stage and made an announcement.

"There were some cameras from ESPN there, and he asked them to turn off the camera and make sure they were completely off," said Monahan.

Once the camera was off, Johnson said there would be no raffle and no random chance for anyone in the audience to win the car.

"Then he said he loved giving back to the community, and he hoped everybody didn't mind, but he was going to give this car to a special lady there in the audience. And at that point, you could have heard the proverbial pin drop,"
said Monahan.

Monahan, who had spent $340 on tickets, decided to file the lawsuit against the Funny Bone. Johnson is identified but not named in the suit, but Monahan's attorney said the football star could be added later.

The Bengals had no comment about the lawsuit. Meanwhile, the Funny Bone, through attorneys, released a statement that it failed to see how the lawsuit is viable.

Chris Henry stole and then totaled the Lexus, I'm guessing. Of course, not before puking on the driver's side door.

Let me spell it out, then: F-R-A-U-D. Christ, is there something in the water in the Cinci/Northern Kentucky area, or what?

Me thinks he should change his name to Ocho Cheapo.

I heard a report that this man is Ocho Cheapo's special lady.......and drove home in a brandy new Lexus.

Once again....athletes do not dwell in the same world as us. This woman probably gave him a hummer for the Lexus right before they were supposed to draw the raffle. The club and Johnson are going to go down on this one.
