(Scroll down for video) Six Flags Over Texas was slapped with a lawsuit after telling a man that he cannot enter the park because he is missing a leg, according to court documents in Texas.

Larry Panayi told the Dallas federal court that he is an active adult male who lost his leg in a car accident while he was serving in the United States Army.

Panayi said that he has adapted to changes and lives a largely normal life. Panayi sometimes uses a leg brace to move around.

Panayi has trained himself to perform daily tasks so he can live as independently as possible. Panayi enjoys spending times in parks, including the Six Flags Over Texas, which he has visited and enjoyed many times.

The last time he visited Six Flags, Panayi was told to leave. One of the workers told him that he cannot be in the park because of his missing leg.

Panayi was left humiliated, embarrassed and confused.
