AP: 4 arrested after man’s beating at Dodger Stadium

The latest attack occurred Sunday, when the victim, a man in his 20s, had a collision with another driver and three other men pinned him down, police said.

The other driver kicked and hit the victim in the head and face while he was on the ground, police Sgt. David Armas said.

“It was just a minor fender bender that just got totally out of hand,” he said.

The victim, whose name was not released, had scrapes and cuts to his face, but his injuries were not life-threatening, Armas said. A woman in the victim’s car who is eight months pregnant was not hurt, but she was examined at a hospital as a precaution, he said.

The four men, all in their 20s, were arrested for investigation of assault with a deadly weapon. They were not immediately identified.

In a statement, Dodgers officials praised stadium security and Los Angeles police for a “quick security response (that) prevented the confrontation from escalating further.”

Security responded within moments, according to the statement issued Monday.

Dodger President Stan Kasten said the organization is committed to providing a safe, family-friendly environment for fans.

The violence came after Giants fan Bryan Stow was beaten last year. Two men have pleaded not guilty to charges including mayhem and assault. Stadium officials beefed up security after that attack.

I would bet that the LAPD do not have the people who really beat up Stow.

They really do need to fix the parking problem at Chavez Ravine. It should not take a ####### hour just to get out of the stadium.

It doesn't. I have never had to wait more than 10-20 minutes get back on the 5 from Stadium Way.

i have never had problems getting out of the stadium, but i park in a lot that is right next to an exit, and i make sure i'm way down by the access to the exit. i was at the game sunday, and it felt pretty mellow.

tripon, where were you parked?
   11. Tripon Posted: May 22, 2012 at 12:34 PM (#4137733)
The enterance to Sunset. I guess part of the problem is that they force you to park in a little valley and there's only one exit going either way.
   12. phredbird Posted: May 22, 2012 at 12:42 PM (#4137739)
it looks like if you are parked in any of the lots on the third base side you are going to have trouble getting out -- the lots are huge. unless you are way back by the northwest exits at academy road. i'm always on the east side lots which are smaller, so there's less congestion at the exit.

but if you drive up and buy a parking pass they always put you in the big lots on the west side, so i see your point.

The LA Times reported that none of the attackers are going to be charged with a felony, because the Los Angeles County DA's office said they don't have enough evidence of who started the fight. They might still be charged with misdemeanors from the city of Los Angeles.

I have no idea why the county and city splits the division by that way.
