Man Sues L.A. Dodgers for More Than $2 Million, Alleges Security Guards Attacked Him ‘Unprovoked’

A man filed a lawsuit against the Los Angeles Dodgers Tuesday, alleging he broke his ankle after he was attacked by security guards during a game last year.

Daniel Antunez is seeking more than $2 million in damages, according to court documents obtained by KTLA.

The man was at a game with friends celebrating his birthday on April 24 last year when one of his friends spilled her beer on another fan seated below them. The fan called security guards who came over and asked Antunez and his friend to leave with them, according to the complaint filed Tuesday.

While standing with about 10 security guards, Antunez told them he needed to use a nearby restroom and proceeded to walk towards it. Three security guards then grabbed the plaintiff “without any provocation” and threw him to the ground, according to the lawsuit.

In case you’ve ever wondered why no one in the civilized world wants to see the Dodgers win the World Series…

So he was being kicked out of the stadium, and then fled from custody? It's rarely safe to take only one side's POV of a confrontation.
