On December 8 in Portland, Oregon, Ashreana Scott went to redeem her tickets for prizes at a Chuck E. Cheese when her hair allegedly got caught in the ticket machine for 20 minutes until an employee was able to free her. She's now suing the pizza and games chain for $1,000, and asking that Chuck E. Cheese put a warning sign next to the ticket-counting machine. The Oregonian reports that Scott's suffered discomfort and headaches since getting her hair stuck in the machine. Before filling her lawsuit, she sought a settlement from Chuck E. Cheese's insurance provider, but her negligence claim was denied.
