A Dallas man was seriously injured and his vehicle damaged after being attacked in the Chicken Express on Tuesday.
According to the Johnny Cochran law firm, the incident began when Leskell Nicholls visited the Chicken Express Drive Through at 126 East Owila Road on March 10 to place an order.
After receiving the wrong order in the pickup window, Nicholas was promised by an employee, Chester Harris, that his next order in the franchise would be discounted by 50%.
Nichols attempted to cash in on his waiver on his next visit on April 6, but another Chicken Express employee, Christina Johnson, refused to honor the waiver, the law firm said.
Harris, an employee who promised a waiver 10 days earlier, appeared at the window, and Nichols requested Harris to provide the Chicken Express corporate phone number.
Another third employee, Terry Hall, proceeded to exit the chicken express pick up window and Nicholas vehicle’s driver side window, according to the law firm.
According to the Johnny Cochran law firm, Hall began physically assaulting Nicholas, and due to Hall’s position in Nichols’ car, Nicholas was unable to flee the scene.
Johnson ran out of the building and tried to restrain Hall, but Nicholas was only able to drive when Hall released him momentarily, the law firm said.
Nicholas sustained serious physical injuries, and his vehicle was damaged during the attack.
Chicken Express has not responded at this time.
Nichols is represented by Sean Hodge of the Hodge Law Firm and Larry Taylor, co-counsel at the Johnny Cochran Law Firm.
