Chadwick St.-OHarra, 59, and Steve Righetti, 59, filed lawsuits in small claims court in San Rafael, Calif., against the Seafood Peddler restaurant for “injuries.”
Cutting into the escargot at dinner, both men were squirted in the face by streams of hot garlic butter.

Said St.-OHarra, “It was the friggin’ rudeness” that provoked them to sue.
