Jamie Foxx on Thin Ice Over Vodka Suit

4/21/2009 8:59 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jamie FoxxJamie Foxx has been sued by a guy who got severely injured on a Vodka display and claims his dream to become a brain surgeon has been put on ice.

Here's the lowdown. Foxx hosted a party in 2007 at Social in Hollywood. William Presler says in his lawsuit he was hired to work the bar -- made completely of ice.

In the suit, filed today in L.A. County Superior Court, Presler claims drunk guests dropped their drinks around the bar and glass shattered everywhere. He claims he tried cleaning it up but was told to leave it be. Presler says the manager preferred kicking the glass along the side of the ice bar.

At the end of the party, Presler says he slipped, fell and landed on the shattered glass, severely injuring himself. He needed 170 stitches to repair the damage to the severed nerves in his left hand.

Presler says he obtained a neuroscience degree and was forced to abandon his career to become a brain surgeon due to the damage in his left hand.

Excuse me? Brain surgeon? LOL..... Why is someone that is dreaming of being a Brain Surgeon,is working behind a bar? If he is that smart ,he would't be working a bar to save up money to be one. He would've been smart enough to find sme other kind of work. Gee what a bunch of bull. I don't believe the Brain Surgeon comment,for a one minute.He is trying to up the money claim by showing that world lost an important valued person from becoming a Brain Surgeon... LOL.. What a joke...and CON.

Good. I hope that Jamie Foxx's luck goes down hill fast. I have no respect for that guy any more. As for it not being his "fault"... If he's hosting a party, it's his responsibility to make sure that things are the way they are supposed to be... He should pay and I guarantee that he will...
