Citing his blood alcohol level at the time of the attack, an attorney for the Los Angeles Dodgers plans to partially blame Bryan Stow for the brutal attacked that left him in a coma on opening day of 2011. LA Times reports: "Jerome Jackson [attorney for the Dodgers] told The Times his statements were purely in reference to how a civil jury might break down responsibility for the beating during the Dodgers' home opener in March. He cited a magazine article that said Stow had alcohol in his system when he was admitted to the hospital."
According to said Sports Illustrated article, Bryan Stow was admitted with a 0.176 blood alcohol level. We guess the claim here is that Stow was asking for it in some way since, like most of us, he had a couple of beers at the game? Huh.
Jackson talked about the case to ESPN, saying: "I've been doing these cases for 23 years and I have never seen one yet which it didn't take at least two people to tango."
The Stow's attorney wasn't thrilled by the new allegations, telling The Chronicle, "That's great, except people watched Mr. Stow leave ... We have witnesses. He did have on a Giants jersey. I guess if that makes him responsible, he's responsible."
