Parking LotFollowing a thrilling 2-1 Los Angeles Dodgers victory over the San Francisco Giants on Opening Day in 2011, a pair of Dodger fans inexplicably turned celebrating into violence as an altercation with Giants fan Bryan Stow left the 45-year-old unconscious.  Stow would be taken to the hospital before being induced into medical coma.

After an ill-advised arrest of Giovanni Ramirez in May 2011, the LAPD apprehended the correct suspects, Marvin Norwood and Luis Sanchez in July 2011; who both entered not guilty pleas in August.  On Thursday, nearly three years after the March 2011 incident, Norwood and Sanchez were sentenced to time in prison.  Superior Court Judge George Lomeli sentenced Norwood to four years and Sanchez received eight years, with credit for 1,086 days already served.

Stow spent two years in hospitals and rehabilitation centers and currently lives at home, still in need of care and assistance. The Dodgers released a statement saying they were glad the two finally accepted responsibility for their actions.
