Grossinger Autoplex customer abusedDiscuss among your friends the trials and tribulations they've faced at the hands of a car dealer and chances are at least one of them will mention being ripped off -- paying too much for a car or service.

It's a rip of a different sort that's raised the ire of a man who claims he was the recipient of a "hanging wedgie" at a General Motors dealer in Chicago.

And the man who was hung up by his tighty-whities isn't happy about it; he's suing, reports WLS Radio 890 AM on its website.

It isn't clear whether the unnamed man was an employee of the dealership, Grossinger City Autoplex on the city's northwest side. But he claims in a lawsuit that he was repeatedly harassed and threatened by five employees of the dealership.

In addition to the hanging wedgie, the suit alleges that the employees choked the man with a phone cord, repeatedly called him a homosexual and threatened to kill him.

All five employees were working at the time of the attacks and threats, which occurred in September and October 2009, according to the suit, filed Friday in Cook County Circuit Court.

The man is seeking more than $600,000 in damages from the dealership, which, WLS reports, didn't return a call seeking comment.
