Motley Crue and Netflix are reportedly the targets of a new lawsuit.
Louis DiVincenti recently filed a lawsuit against the band and the streaming service in Louisiana, according to TMZ. DiVincenti was electrocuted in March 2018 while working on the set of the new biopic “The Dirt”.
DiVincenti reportedly said he was handing down metal pipes to other crew members. One of the pipes made contact with a power line, sending an electric current that “entered his body and blew out through his right foot.”
The electrocution had severe consequences. The lawsuit states DiVincenti suffered third-degree burns on half of his body, required partial amputation of his foot, and he underwent multiple surgeries and skin grafts.
DiVincenti reportedly argues Netflix, the producers, and Motley Crue should be held responsible for failing to address on set electrical hazards.
“The Dirt” is a biographical musical comedy-drama about the glam metal band. It premiered March 22 and received mixed reviews.
