Following the incident in February of last year, Queensland concreter Jamie Crompton, 37, filed the lawsuit in Southport District Court this week.



When taking him from the Star Gold Coast casino in Broadbeach, he claims security personnel used "grossly excessive" force.

The claim made by Shine Lawyers reads:
 

The dealer at the table asked Mr. Crompton to put on his face mask... he initially questioned whether it was still required to wear face masks, and then complied with the request


The dealer informed Mr. Crompton that he was "too intoxicated" and needed to leave the premises after Mr. Crompton put on his face mask.

The croupier was politely informed by Mr. Crompton that he wasn't drunk and asked why he needed to leave. The dealer then requested help from the defendant's security team.

The allegation goes on to say that the two security guards threw Mr. Crompton to the ground and then sought to 'forcefully' hold him by placing his wrists behind his back.

Mr. Crompton asserts that he repeatedly requested that the bouncers reduce the pressure being applied to his wrists, especially the left one, which had a metal plate attached from a previous injury. Instead, it's claimed that the 37-year-old was held down for two minutes and 43 seconds before being raised and led outside. 
According to the accusation, the security personnel did not ease up the force of their restraints despite (his) pleas, and if anything, the restraints became more forceful.

The claim states that the defendant's security personnel applied force throughout the incident that was grossly excessive and a complete over-reaction in the circumstances.

Mr. Crompton claims that the event left him with PTSD, anxiety, tension, and depression in addition to a fractured thumb, sprained fingers, a strained back, and face abrasions.

His $300,360.21 in damages seeks to cover past and future lost wages, medications, and hand treatment. It would be improper to comment while the case was being heard by the courts, a Star Entertainment spokeswoman told Courier Mail.
