UPI News Service, 02/24/2005 

Owners of a Chicago tour boat company whose customers were drenched in human waste from the Dave Matthews Band's tour bus are suing the rock group.

Mercury Skyline Yacht Charters Inc., which owns the city's Little Lady tour boat, say the Matthews bus dumped human excrement as it crossed a downtown Chicago River bridge last August under which the plaintiff's boat was passing, the Sun-Times said Thursday.

The suit, filed Wednesday, says the "foul-smelling, brownish-yellow liquid" drenched children, senior citizens, people with disabilities and a pregnant woman.

Mercury wants compensatory damages in excess of $50,000 and punitive damages in the amount of $5 million.

The driver of Matthews' bus was charged last month with illegally dumping 800 pounds of raw sewage onto the boat.
