Johnny Lee Banks Jr. of Birmingham and his wife, Zelda Banks, filed the lawsuit Tuesday in Jefferson County. They’re suing the hospital, doctors and others for what they say is medical malpractice.
The lawsuit says Banks went to Princeton Baptist Medical Center in Birmingham last month for a circumcision. The suit alleges the man’s penis was gone when he awoke.

BONITA SPRINGS, Fla. (AP) — A southwest Florida waitress has dubbed the trio of naked hamburger thieves who broke into an eatery “dumb, dumber and dumbest.”
Waitress Nancy Sansevieri was still laughing after police released surveillance video Wednesday showing the college-aged men — two naked and one clad in underwear — stealing 60 hamburgers from Doc’s Beach House in Bonita Beach.
Police say the men broke in early Sunday and left a trail of red peppers on the beach.
Doc’s general manager Lou Bangert told the News-Press of Fort Myers (http://newspr.es/1pevKLk) that he’s never witnessed such a crime in the restaurant’s 27-year history. Thieves have broken in and taken money from the cash register, but he says no one has ever slammed through a door completely naked looking for beef.

BATH, Ohio (AP) — LeBron James has sent cupcakes to his neighbors to apologize for the ruckus caused by the announcement of his homecoming earlier this month.
Cleveland Cavaliers fans and journalists arrived en masse to the NBA star’s Akron area home to await his July 11 decision on whether he would come back to northeast Ohio or stay with the Miami Heat. A commotion ensued, and police were called to direct traffic.
To make amends, the LeBron James Family Foundation sent a note of apology accompanied by a dozen cupcakes to neighbors on Tuesday, according to multiple media outlets.
Several neighbors tweeted photos of the cupcakes and the note saying that “we are sorry for the chaos,” adding that the James family is “so blessed to have understanding neighbors like you.”

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Environmental Protection Agency’s fight to clean up water pollution is getting a splash of pop culture, thanks to a flub involving reality TV star Kim Kardashian.
The verified Twitter account for the EPA’s Office of Water mistakenly published a note Monday night about an online game, “Kim Kardashian: Hollywood,” in which players walk red carpets, attend photo shoots and get dolled up like a Kardashian. An agency spokeswoman said the off-topic tweet was done by an intern.
The tweet was removed within hours, but not before a tweet from the account of Michigan Rep. John Dingell, one of the authors of the Clean Water Act, poked fun by asking what a Kardashian is.
The EPA took the mistake in jest. On Tuesday, the EPA account thanked Kardashian for bringing more attention to clean water,” saying, “Whoops ... our bad.”

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A tree planted in Los Angeles to honor former Beatle George Harrison has been killed — by beetles.
Councilman Tom LaBonge says the pine grew to more than 12 feet tall before succumbing to a bark beetle infestation.
The tree was removed last month. LaBonge says it will be replanted in the fall.
After Harrison’s 2001 death in Los Angeles, the pine was planted near Griffith Observatory. A small plaque at the base commemorates the guitarist and songwriter, who had a deep appreciation of gardening.
LaBonge says several trees at Griffith Park have been killed by the beetles.
