Beware of flying rolls.

That’s what one woman is saying after suffering injuries at a Missouri restaurant known for lobbing dinner rolls by servers to guests.

Troy Tucker is suing Lambert’s Café,  “Home of Throwed Rolls,” after she “sustained a lacerated cornea with a vitreous detachment and all head, neck, eyes and vision were severely damaged” after being hit by a dinner roll during a visit in September of 2014, reports Fox 2 St. Louis.

Tucker is seeking $25,000 to cover for her medical bills and legal fees. The law suit claims that the restaurant should’ve known about the dangers involved in their practice, which Tucker’s attorney called a "defective condition" of the restaurant.

Lambert's general manager, Jerry Johnson, told KFVS-TV that the server did not toss the roll in malice and that no one has sued the eatery for being hit by a roll.

But this isn't the first law suit over flying food. Last year the Missouri Supreme Court ruled in favor of a plaintiff claiming injury from a hot dog thrown by a mascot at a Kansas City Royals game.
