Spring Dekaney football coach Willie Amendola didn’t appear to suffer major injuries in December 2011, when he was mowed down by an unmanned electric cart while being interviewed at Cowboys Stadium, reports The Dallas Morning News.

But as Courthouse News notes, the father of New England Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola, isn’t taking the accident lying down.
