A man filed a lawsuit against the Planet Hollywood Resort, after a human size mannequin scared him and caused him to suffer permanent injuries, according to court documents in California.

Kent Jacobs Boutwell said that Planet Hollywood Resort of Las Vegas, Nevada, was negligent by placing the mannequin in his dark room, making it look like a real person was out to get him.

When Boutwell entered the dark room and shut the door, he noticed the human like figure that looked ready to harm him.

Boutwell became extremely scared and attempted to flee from the scene. In the process, Boutwell suffered injuries to his body, limbs, organs and nervous system.

Some of the injuries are permanent and disabling. Boutwell is seeking compensation for assault and negligence, medical expenses, lost wages and legal fees.
