Louie Sanchez and Marvin Norwood, the two men accused of beating Giants fan Bryan Stow outside Dodger Stadium, were arraigned today, with both entering pleas of "not guilty" on multiple charges, reports L.A. Now.

Reports indicate the men were not revealing any emotion while in the courtroom this morning.

Prosecutors say the men have "made incriminating statements in the case" that they are considering "admissions" the attorneys attend to use in their prosecution of the suspects.

An attorney for Sanchez wound up withdrawing a motion to reduce his client's bail. Sanchez and Norwood remain in custody in lieu of $500,000 bail.

The men face a slate of charges. Stow is thought to have been the third Giants fan the duo confronted that day. Court paperwork indicates witnesses saw Sanchez and Norwood chase after Stow and deliver the near-fatal beating. One of the men was heard yelling "who else wants to fight" as they stood over the fallen body of Stow.
