The old banana peel scam

Screening for man charged after banana peel suit

WASHINGTON (AP) — A D.C. judge has ordered a psychological screening for a Maryland man accused of staging a fall on a banana peel in a Metro station elevator.

The screening was ordered Tuesday after a request from an attorney for 42-year-old Maurice Owens of District Heights. Owens sued the transit agency for $15,000, claiming he injured his left leg and hip in a fall at the Potomac Avenue station in August.

Surveillance video shows Owens dropping a banana peel, stepping on it as the elevator door opens, then appearing to thrust himself forward and falling to the ground.
