Daily News.MacFarlane was working for Securitas security company when he was posted outside of the Stadium on the frigid night. He and his partner were stationed in a converted Port-A-Potty with a space heater to keep warm.The Daily News reported:A drunken fan leaving the game who needed to use a toilet became irate when he opened the door to the john and saw it wasn’t a toilet.The man and his pals all ganged up on MacFarlane, he said, and pummeled him on a police car.MacFarlane said slow-moving cops didn’t come to his aid until after he’d been knocked unconscious. He said he told officers he needed medical help — and they took him to a security office inside the Stadium instead of to an ambulance positioned nearby.MacFarlane’s lawyer Peter Gleason said the police, Securitas and the Yankees “didn’t provide even a minimal level of protection.” He filed a notice of claim, the first step in filing a lawsuit, last month.A rep for the city Law Department said the filing would be reviewed thoroughly.
