Peace talks allegedly turn to fisticuffs and indecent exposure in Cypress
Cypress residents sue after, they say, a man's attempt to make amends turned into a drunken rage.
Kendall Kilway, Heather Kilway and Elder Pyatt filed a lawsuit on Nov. 15 in the Harris County District Court against James Doyle citing intentional infliction of emotional distress, infliction of bodily injury and threat of bodily injury.
The plaintiffs say that Memorial Day weekend, Doyle, to make amends for his past bad behavior toward the Kilways, brought alcoholic beverages to the Kilway residence. According to the brief, Doyle, while consuming the alcohol, became combative to Kendall, his teenage daughter Heather, and Pyatt.
They say that after Doyle learned of Pyatt's past military experience, he engaged in a game of one-upmanship with Pyatt, going so far as to discuss the size of his penis. When Doyle was asked to leave, plaintiffs say he pulled his penis out of his pants, exposing himself to everyone. The drunken Doyle then stumbled into the Kilways' swimming pool. After being rescued from the pool, Doyle raged, fought and threatened Kendall Kilway and Pyatt.
The plaintiffs are seeking actual damages, exemplary damages and court costs.
They are being represented in the case by Cypress attorney Michael Fuerst.
