Even celebrities have pet problems: Joe Namath sued by former UPS employee over dog aggression

December 22, 2009 | 11:04 am

Joe Namath WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — A former UPS driver has sued Joe Namath, alleging he was attacked by the Hall of Fame quarterback's dogs while making a delivery at his Florida home.

Attorneys for David Gunter say he hasn't been able to work since the 2007 incident in Tequesta, about 90 miles north of Miami. Lawyer Steven Slootsky says Gunter required four surgeries after suffering injuries to his neck, back and knee.

The lawsuit was filed last week in West Palm Beach's Circuit Court.

Namath's attorney did not immediately respond to e-mails and telephone messages.

Gunter isn't the only one to have problems with Namath's dogs.

Complaints have been filed against two of them, and one was ordered last month to be muzzled and leashed full-time.
