Dodger Stadium Beating, A man was beaten and four were arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon in the Dodger Stadium parking lot after Sunday night’s Dodgers-Cardinals game, Los Angeles police said Monday.
According to police, a minor traffic accident resulted in the altercation, after which a man in his 20s was treated for non-life-threatening injuries and released. A pregnant woman, a passenger in his car, was taken to the hospital as a precaution and also was released.
Sgt. David Armas told the Associated Press the victim was held down while he was hit and kicked in the face area while he was on the ground.
Four men in the the other vehicle, also in their 20s, were being held on $30,000 bail, officer Bruce Borihanh said Monday, according to the Los Angeles Times.
“There is a lot of security at Dodger Stadium, and they were able to respond pretty quickly,” Borihanh told the Times.
The Dodgers released this statement Monday:
Last night, at approximately 8:40 p.m., two vehicles were involved in a minor collision as they were exiting near Dodger Stadium’s Gate C. According to witnesses, the drivers of the vehicles immediately confronted each other and this led to physical contact between them. Three male friends of one of the drivers also became involved in the altercation. Los Angeles Dodger security personnel and uniformed LAPD officers arrived on scene within moments and apprehended both of the drivers and the three males.
The quick security response prevented the confrontation from escalating further. All persons involved in the incident were examined for injuries at the scene and provided with immediate medical attention. One of the drivers and a female passenger were transported to a local hospital and subsequently released. The other four men involved in the incident were taken into custody.
Northeast Area of LAPD is investigating the incident with the full cooperation of the Dodgers.
The incident comes about 14 months after the beating of Giants fan Bryan Stow in the same parking lot. Stow suffered severe head and skull trauma that has left him with brain damage. (USA TODAY)
