Former Blink-182 bassist Mark Hoppus sued a father-and-son business Monday, alleging they pocketed his investment in a venture to install automated checkout machines at McDonald's restaurants. The lawsuit in San Diego Superior Court says Ed and Jeff Mitchell lined their pockets "to the tune of over $1.5 million." It alleges their company Missicom LLC of San Diego does not have any contracts to install the machines to take orders and collect payments at McDonald's or anywhere else. Hoppus, currently a member of the pop-punk band Plus-44, invested $600,000 in Missicom in October 2003, according to the complaint. The lawsuit says the Mitchells raised nearly $3.4 million and solicited millions of dollars from "prominent, well-known figures." Hoppus' attorney, Howard King, said in a news release that other investors included golfer Phil Mickelson and former Blink-182 members Tom Delonge and Travis Barker. After Blink-182 disbanded, Hoppus and Barker formed Plus-44. Read more at News.yahoo.com.
