Lawsuit: Wahler's a Racist, Homophobe, Chubby Hater

8/18/2007 6:27 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jason WahlerFormer Laguna Beach star Jason Wahler didn't just beat the crap out of a Department of Transportation officer last year, he's also accused of calling the guy a "nig**r, motherf**ker, f*g, and "fatass."

In a lawsuit filed Friday in L.A. County Superior Court and obtained by TMZ, Jonathan Wallace claims Wahler and model Kristen DeLuca approached both him and a tow truck driver who was impounding a car, when Jason began "thrusting his chest into that of the tow truck driver while unleashing a verbal barrage of racial statements and swearing profusely." Wallace also alleges that in the middle of Jason's tirade, Wahler "initiated physical contact" with another tow truck driver by repeatedly punching the man in the face. Wallace claims that during the ruckus, Jason somehow managed to sock him in the left eye too.

The LAPD arrived to the scene shortly after, where they arrested Wahler and DeLuca. Cops say Wahler's blood alcohol level was nearly three times the legal limit. He later plead no contest to battery and was sentenced to 60 days behind bars.

Wallace is asking for $200,000 in damages.

Wahler is probably correct on all accounts. Tow truck drivers are worthless pieces of crap and deserve to be treated as such.

He is so lucky he wasn't in New Jersey........If he did that here, with hi alchohol level, he probably would of got a DUI because he showed intent to drive.

Jason has been to rehab and has made positive changes in his life since then . Why is this jackass filing charges a year later? Guess he saw it as an easy way to make money.

Puh-lease    

$200,000 for getting punched in the eye and called names? Sounds like Mr. Tow Truck saw a cash cow and decided to milk it. I wonder if the tow truck driver who actually got the worst of the physical abuse is going to sue also, and if so, for how much?

Jason may have cleaned up his life like someone else said in comments, but there are consequences when you're that far out of control which don't go away just because you got sober. He should have gotten sober before something like that happened, because violent drunks are well aware that they are violent drunks.

I think the man's lawsuit is asking for entirely too much money, but I don't feel sorry for Jason because he brought this upon himself.
