Dodger Stadium Parking Lot Brawlers Won't Face Felony Charges, Says DA's Office

Four men who became entangled in a fight with a fifth man in the Dodger Stadium parking lot Sunday night will not face felony charges, says the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office today. However, the case has been sent over to the City Attorney's Office, where it will be decided if misdemeanor charges will be filed against the men, reports City News Service.

The altercation allegedly sparked after a fender bender in the lot following the game. The four men involved--Arthur Morales, 30, of Monrovia; Alan Trujillo, 29, of Los Angeles; Ulisis Briceno, 26, of Los Angeles; and Alejandro Briceno, 29, of La Crescenta--were arrested at the scene. They were all booked on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon (notably fists and feet, police said) and made bail the next morning.

The DA declined to file charges because they could not rule out the possibility the men were acting in self-defense, and witnesses could not say definitively who started the fight.

The fifth man involved sustained injuries in the fight, and was treated at the hospital and released; his name has been withheld. Additionally, the female passenger in his vehicle, who is eight months pregnant, was examined as a precaution, although she was not involved in the fight.
