An 18-year-old from St. Petersburg, Florida, is suing the owner of the Hill House Waffle House over the incident that left her hospitalized after she ate too much.
The woman, who asked that her name not be used, said she was eating breakfast at the Hillhouse on Sunday when a woman asked her if she was OK.
She said the woman told her to get up and walk out of the restaurant.
She said she didn’t have to do that because she had an ankle injury.
She also said she thought the woman might have been drunk and could not walk.
The Hillhouse is located in a hillside parking lot in Pinellas County.
The restaurant was inspected for dangerous food handling, a violation, according to a complaint filed in Pinelitha County Court.
The lawsuit says the woman was able to get to the restroom before her ankle was injured.
She says she did not have to go through the toilet because she was wearing a walking boot.
The restaurant’s manager told ABC News she was aware of the problem but did not want to say what was going on at the time.
The manager did not immediately return a message left at a phone number listed for the restaurant’s owner.
The plaintiff’s mother told ABC affiliate WPLG that she believes her daughter was drinking too much and that the restaurant is an adult-only restaurant.
The suit is seeking $2,500 in damages, the maximum allowed by law.
