Last night it was revealed – by San Diego’s ABC 10 News – that a young woman has filed a lawsuit against Steve Aoki and Hard Rock Cafe for a crowd surfing incident three years ago in May 2012.

Stating that the Dim Mak boss’s estimated 20 foot jump from a stage scaffolding onto an inflatable raft in the audience (which she explains she was directly under) caused serious damage to her ankle and broke her neck, Brittany Hickman was interviewed by ABC 10 in the video below. If you haven’t seen it yet, here it is…

Since the news emerged ABC 10 has updated their feed with a statement from Steve Aoki via his attorney Peter Doody.  

“I would never want anyone to get hurt at any of my shows and feel badly that someone has, but at this time I have been advised by my attorneys to not speak about this as it’s going to trial. Thank you for your understanding.”

The case will take place on August 28 at San Diego Superior Court.
