The L.A. County District Attorney filed assault charges today against a 27-year-old Palos Verdes man after he and his mother allegedly confronted and attacked a group of persons in the Dodger Stadium parking lot after a Mets game last fall.
Michael Rae Papayans is scheduled to be arraigned next month after being charged with felony assault to produce great bodily injury, according to the District Attorney.
Prosecutors said that Papayans’ mother confronted and began yelling epithets at a group of four persons, one of whom was wearing Mets clothing, in the stadium parking lot on Oct. 9. Papayans then joined his mother in the argument, punching a 50-year-old man, who fell to the ground and sustained serious head injuries.
Papayan’s mother allegedly kicked the victim in the back while he was on the ground. Prosecutors referred the mother’s case to the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office for misdemeanor filing consideration, according to the District Attorney.
