Los Angeles Clippers being sued by fan for $5 million

A Los Angeles Clippers fan is suing his beloved team to the tune of $5 million after claiming the Clippers are directly responsible for sending spam to his cell phone.

The fan, Ari Friedman, recently went to a Clippers game at the Staples Center and engaged in an arena game which allows fans to send a text message in order to get their message posted on the stadium scoreboard.

After the game, Friedman claims his cell phone got lit up with text message spam and he was able to trace the source back to the Clippers. Aside from getting unwanted messages, Friedman is also upset because the incoming messages can cost several cents in charges. Apparently, the guy doesn't have unlimited text messaging like the rest of America.

Nevertheless, Friedman filed a class action lawsuit demanding $5 million from the franchise for his troubles.

A call to the Clippers by TMZ was not immediately returned.
