Man Sues Dodgers Over Violent Parking Lot Attack

The Los Angeles Dodgers are being sued by a man who was severely beaten in the parking lot of the team’s stadium following a game last March.

Rafael Reyna claims he was walking to his car after the game when he was attacked by a group of men. As a result, Reyna spent several days in a medically induced coma due to head injuries he suffered during the assault.

Reyna claims the Dodgers’ parking lot lacked safe lighting.

“As we all yearn for the return of baseball, this lawsuit reminds everyone that no team…can ever put their own thirst for profits over the safety of their loyal fan,” said Reyna’s lawyer in a statement, which was reported by Dodgers Nation.

The Dodgers organization has declined to comment on the matter.

Reyna isn’t the first Dodgers fan to be the target of violence at the stadium. Bryan Stow was attacked following a game in 2011 and was left with permanent brain damage as a result. Two men pleaded guilty in that case and were sent to prison. The Dodgers paid out part of an $18 million settlement in that incident.
