The Worst Playboy Mansion Story Ever

1/28/2010 3:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

A man claims he went to the Playboy Mansion -- and all he got was a "savage" ass kicking.


It's all part of a new lawsuit filed against Playboy ... by a guy who obviously never, ever plans to go back to Hef's place again in his lifetime.

According to the suit, a guy named Ryan Murphy claims he somehow scored an invite to a Super Bowl party at the Mansion in 2008 -- a party where guests were "permitted to consume an endless amount of alcohol without restriction." So far, so good -- right?

But Murphy claims his night took a drastic turn after the party when a Playboy shuttle took him to a parking garage where party guests parked their cars.

In the suit, Murphy claims there was a backup in the parking garage and many of the "intoxicated individuals ... became impatient and unruly"

Murphy claims the people in the car behind him began throwing beer bottles at his car -- and ultimately dragged him out of his ride, where they proceeded to "savagely beat him." Murphy claims he was knocked unconscious and sustained "several severe and debilitating injuries" from the attack.

Murphy is suing Playboy, the parking garage, his alleged attackers and others. Murphy claims Playboy knew that "incidents like this were likely to occur" -- but did nothing to prevent it.

No comment from Playboy so far.

Did HE drink?! I mean what sort of idiot after a limitless booze do (whether at Playboy Mansion or not) feels they are in any condition to drive anywhere!! Something not sounding right about his story, if he was drunk maybe he even provoked the punch-up he alleges happened!! Who knows by now!

Next time go to the ESPN Zone or Trump National Golf Club for a much safer and cleaner Super Bowl party with more respectable guests. What kind of people do you think attend a party at the Playboy Mansion?....only freaks, perverts, and cretins.

Last week after reading an issue of playboy I sufferd from an erection that would not go away. Playboy knew this would happen and did nothing to prevent this. I am now looking for legal assistance in this matter.

I know this is going to sound really stupid but from what I remember the superbowl party was in arizona not at the mansion. And why blame the playboy mansion when you can sue the drunks?

you would think old heffer would be able to afford to give his guests a ride home. all he cares about is those freaky vampires that make him money and give him compliments. pay up and close down. its over. the end.

What a douche. I hope the statute of limitations is up. Why wait almost 2 years to complain

how about the fact that he drank an incredible amount, to which he admitted, then got into his vehicle. seems like all the other people did was prevent him from killing someone by drunk driving. I thank the patrons of the mansion for saving a child from getting killed by this idiot for getting behind the wheel while drunk

he coulda just stayed home a read some bible passages and dusted his furniture and lined up his action figure collection. You play, and at some point, you pay. suck it up and find a different type of venue that you can handle. just sayin'

die a painful death already Hollywood    

SO many misinformed people here .

If a bartender at a club / bar / restarant serves a drunk person they can be held liable if that person causes a car crash , a fight , does some act that they maynot do if they were not drunk .

Courts have held bars responsible in the past , it's nothing new.

It doesnt matter where the incident happened here . The question is did bartenders serve an already drunk party goer at Hefs.

If he can prove that occured , I would think his case has may some merit .

He could have walked across the street to the century plaza hotel and gotta taxi instantly. That's what I did the first time I partied there. Better safe than sorry.

So the drunk guys in the car behind him were throwing beer bottles at his car to prevent him from driving drunk. Sounds like a logical explanation.

In the State of California, Playboy's liable. Especially if he was overserved and then dropped directly at his car?

C'mon, there is no public transportation in that area in LA.

Playboy knew he was going to drive drunk.
