*Its a shame when people who are supposed to be professionals can’t keep a modicum of composure when things are not going their way. Such is the case of a hot-headed soccer player who is now in prison for landing a fatal punch on the referee during a soccer game last summer. Now, the dead man’s wife has filed a $51 million lawsuit against the player.
The figure represents $1 million for each of the 51 additional years that John Bieniewicz, a 44-year-old father of two, could have lived, according to the lawsuit in Wayne County (Michigan)court.
The player, Bassel Saad, is being sued by Kristen Bieniewicz of Westland, MI. She represents her husband’s estate.
Saad also controls the team and the soccer league.
Bieniewicz died after Saad punched him in the head just moments before Saad would have been ejected from a weekend game.
