A retired New Jersey police officer says he nearly died after drinking a pint of beer in 2012. Three years later, he's locked in a legal battle with the restaurant which supposedly served it to him.
"No one would ever expect to go into a restaurant and have this happen to them," Richard Washart said.
53-year-old Richard Washart sat down for a beer at the McCormick and Schmick's restaurant in Atlantic City on November 6, 2012. But he told WCAU that after just one drink, he felt a burning sensation in his mouth and rushed to the bathroom, where he began projectile vomiting blood.
