LOS ANGELES – A man was dragged out of his car and beaten outside Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles on Sunday night after apparently causing a minor collision, KABC-TV reported.
The victim suffered non-life-threatening head and facial injuries in the parking lot attack, which happened after the home team beat the St. Louis Cardinals before more than 44,000 spectators.
He was taken to the hospital for treatment while his companion, a heavily pregnant woman, was also hospitalized as a precaution.
Police said at least one person assaulted the man, and four people were detained for questioning.
The incident comes 14 months after a horrific attack in the stadium parking lot on 42-year-old San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow, who spent months in a coma after being knocked unconscious then repeatedly kicked in the head.
Two men have pleaded not guilty to charges of mayhem, assault and battery in the Stow case.
