Todd Falzone said Friday that McChesney, from Schenectady in New York was visiting a cousin in Fort Lauderdale when he met St. Clair.
According to the lawsuit, the pair met with two other couples and visited a few bars in the area.
The suit claims that McChesney ‘drank alcohol to the point where he became impaired’.
McChesney is accused of ‘carelessly and negligently’ operating the motorcycle, causing St. Clair ‘to be expelled from said motorcycle into oncoming traffic’ on Interstate 95.
At a news conference on Friday, Falzone explained that the drivers of the other two motorcycles had ridden ahead and reportedly did not witness St. Clair fall off the bike.
