(NEWSER) – Al Sharpton’s daughter is suing New York City for $5 million after apparently taking a spill and suffering severe injuries—a story the New York Post is reporting with some glee. “Shakedown artist Al Sharpton’s eldest child wants $5 million from city taxpayers,” the paper says, referring to boycotts and protests by the reverend that elicited corporate donations. Dominique Sharpton fell on craggy pavement at a Manhattan crosswalk on Oct. 2 last year and was “severely injured, bruised, and wounded,” suffering “multiple ligament and tendon tears,” according to a lawsuit. She “still suffers and will continue to suffer for some time physical pain and bodily injuries,” the suit adds. After the fall, she reportedly wrote on Instagram that “I sprained my ankle real bad lol.”

Dominique, who is membership director of her dad’s National Action Network, was seen in a walking boot for weeks after the tumble. But she’s been moving around since, joining NAN’s Justice for All march in December and wearing high heels, the Post notes. She also posted on Instagram that “We hiked UP the mountain” on her current Bali vacation, adding, “YES I ALMOST DIED GETTING UP THERE LOL” (the Blaze has a screenshot). Whatever happens, her lawsuit isn’t the first: New York City has paid $60 million in 885 uneven-pavement cases over a 22-month stretch. So how did Dominique decide on $5 million? Her lawyer says his firm chose the number “as a safeguard for Ms. Sharpton in a worst-case scenario.”
