FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A North Dakota man who says he was injured while watching a paintball game at a National Guard recruiting event is suing the federal government over his claim for damages.

KFGO radio reports that Joshua Seminario, of Mayville, was struck in the right eye by a paintball projectile fired by one of the participants in the January 2013 event at Mayville State University. Seminario says he sustained “serious and permanent” injuries during the so-called “Attack Ball” event.

The lawsuit says the government failed to give spectators proper warnings and protective eye gear, or warn spectators about the risk of injury.

The original claim for $1 million in damages was denied in December 2014.

A government attorney could not be immediately reached for comment.
