Police Looking for Assailants Who Jumped a Mets Fan Outside Dodger Stadium
Here’s another sad case of a fan being jumped outside of a stadium simply for not supporting the home team. Outside Dodger Stadium on Friday night, in the parking lot, a fight broke out between Dodgers and Mets fans. One Mets fan was punched, then fell to the ground, striking his head. He’s now listed as being in critical but stable condition at a hospital.
No suspects have been ID’d yet.
This incident closely mirrors another high profile one in 2011 in which a Giants fan was beaten and suffered permanent brain damage as a result.
The most recent fight came after the Dodgers fell to the Mets 3-1 in the first playoff game.
