Local 1010 (defendant) threw an outdoor picnic for union members with unlimited beer included in the price of admission. Expecting some 500 guests, the organizing committee picnic paid one of its members to hire four or five policemen to provide security. However, only one person, who was 60 years old and not a policeman, was assigned. The morning of the picnic, the committee chairman realized the picnic needed more security, but no more was obtained. The picnic turned raucous as guests consumed alcohol. After drinking at least five beers, Richard Becker (defendant) got in two fights, one with a member of the organizing committee, but was not arrested or evicted. Becker went to his car a half-hour later and drove it into the picnickers, aiming for the committee member with whom he fought. Instead Becker hit and injured Ronald Mehri (plaintiff), who sued Becker and the union. A jury found the union liable and the union appealed, arguing it could not have foreseen harm of the nature Mehri suffered.
