Dodger fan goes down

The Dodger home opener on Tuesday found fans facing a larger and more aggressive effort by the LAPD and Dodger security to deal with tail gate parties and rowdy behavior on the stadium property and in surrounding Elysian Park. The above YouTube video (you need to sign and verify you are and adult to watch) captured scene of Dodger security guards tackling a man during the opening game. The video does not show what the man might have done to prompt the security guards to act. Police said they arrested 132 people – mostly for drinking in public – as part of a crack down on drinking and public and other violations connected to the Dodger home opener.

  1. surely this is an example of excellent policing, a reasonable response to a situation fraught with danger.NOT

  2. Anonymous 12:01, Think you should rephrase your comment to say excellent private security forcing…those aren't cops. At least not on-duty cops.

  3. love the racist mexicans in this video. Fail.
