So it looks like the beating that left Bryan Stow fighting for his life wasn’t the first incident he had with a Dodger fan that day. TMZ has uncovered an exclusive cell phone video that captures a confrontation between Stow and another crazy Dodger fan.
You can check out the video here:
Now the fan in this video is NOT accused suspect Giovanni Ramirez. Which doesn’t necessarily prove his innocence, it just proves that there are a LOT of a-hole Dodger fans out there.
The man has been identified as Uber-Dodger fan Juan Banda. Seen here with Dodger first baseman, Eric Karros.
Banda wisely contacted LAPD immediately after news of his confrontation with Stow broke.
Now here’s where things get interesting…
A friend of Banda’s texted him regarding the incident and Banda is reported as saying that Stow started the whole thing when he yelled out ‘I’d rather eat my own feces than eat a dodger dog.'” I mean, who can blame him? It’s not exactly calling out my name either. That being said I would prefer eating one over my own doo doo. But hey… boys will be boys?
Banda Is also quoted as saying that Stow ” did have a mouth though!” and that “Maybe he said the wrong thing to the wrong guys!”
There is a huge difference between dissing Dodger dogs and beating a man to within an inch of his life. It seems to me that what Stow was doing is the typical kind of razzing between fans that one might expect. Even if he was being a jerk…does he really deserve to lose the life that he once knew, because of it? Definitely interesting new details…but it doesn’t really change the fact that whatever thugs did this to him need to be put away for life. And I think we can all agree that the security situation still needs to improve big time at Dodger stadium.
What do you think of the new details? Does it change your opinion of the case? Let’s discuss in the comments!
