Like Bryan Stow, Another Dodger Stadium Fight Leaves Fan Critically Injured

fan-fight.jpgEerily similar to the assault that Bryan Stow sustained on the evening of the 2011 Dodgers Opening Day game, this past Friday night October 9, 2015, yet another opposing team's fan was brutally beaten in the parking lot of Dodger Stadium. Witnesses said the ordeal began in the Dodger parking lot at around 10:30 PM. One man, identified as a Mets fan, was punched in the head so hard by a Dodgers fan, he fell, hit the ground and began bleeding profusely -almost in identical fashion and Bryan Stow. According to witness Maria Cerecer, it was other Dodgers fans who were first to the injured man's aid, "[T]here was a gentleman on the floor and [he] was bleeding profusely from the head. We got free rally towels that night, so they were holding the rally towels to his head." Like Bryan, the victim is now in critical but stable condition at an USC County Hospital.
