Monday marked the three-year anniversary of San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow being beaten nearly to death at Dodgers Stadium on Opening Day 2011. Fan violence is unfortunately still very much a thing of the present, as three Marines were reportedly stabbed while trying to break up a street fight between Los Angeles Angels and Los Angeles Dodgers fans in Huntington Beach, Calif., on Sunday.
Police told the LA Times that the incident began when a woman wearing an Angels jersey got into an argument with two people who were wearing Dodgers gear. Three Marines who were passing by tried to come to the aid of the woman and were attacked and stabbed.
As police tried to break up the fight, one of the Marines was allegedly stabbed in the face with a broken beer bottle. Two people, 23-year-old Manuel Alexis Alvarez and 20-year-old Victoria Robledo, were arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon. Four others were arrested and released after questioning.
When will this stuff stop? There’s nothing more idiotic than someone getting seriously injured over an argument that started because of fan loyalties.
