Nashville radio personality Adam Davis, who goes by the name “Intern Adam” is reportedly suing the Predators hockey organization for injuries he suffered last December during a rehearsal for a “human hockey puck” promotion, according to the Nashville City Paper and CBSSports.com. Davis works at Clear Channel’s CHR WRVW-FM “The River” in that market.
While the Predators call it “human hockey puck,” the stunt was actually the human bowling promotion that many NHL teams do during intermissions. A random fan sits on a sled and is launched with a giant slingshot across the ice in an effort to knock over a bunch of inflatable bowling pins.
Davis is reportedly suing the Predators and Bridgestone Arena management for $25,000 to recover medical costs after the rehearsal didn’t go as planned and he suffered a broken ankle after crashing into the boards.
Davis had to have screws placed in his ankle after he was transported to Vanderbilt Medical Center following the incident.

The lawsuit claims that employees of the Predators failed to provide adequate protection for Davis — and also failed to warn Davis of the risks associated with the stunt. Attorney Bill Leader, who is representing Davis, said his client didn’t sign any kind of waiver form before participating in the stunt.
