(Newser) – Apparently Cam Newton shied away from that Super Bowl fumble because he was (allegedly) saving his body for partying. TMZ reports a lawsuit filed against the Carolina Panthers quarterback by the manager of a luxury hotel rental company claims he did nearly $100,000 in damage to an $11 million Beverly Hills mansion he rented in the wake of the Super Bowl. Despite agreeing to a no-partying policy, Newton allegedly held numerous parties during the 61 days he rented the house, breaking a fridge, causing water damage to the floors, destroying a $32,000 rug, and more. The rental company is looking to recoup damages plus the two months of rent it claims it lost while fixing the damage. The Panthers haven't commented on the lawsuit, according to the Charlotte Observer. (Read more Cam Newton stories.)
