Security at Dodger Stadium has been taken very seriously in the past few years and despite our Unwritten Rules to Dodger Stadium Safety, there are going to be some occasional outbursts of ignorance during a game.
On June 26, 2017, an Angels fan by the name of Angel (yep, of course) Garcia claims that he was attacked a game at Dodger Stadium by a drunk Dodgers fan.
Sitting over in section 309, yes, Mr. Garcia had 12 seats, 10 in row T and 2 seats in Row S while dressed in an Anaheim Angels jersey to support his team. With so many seats and LA traffic being as it is, Mr. Garcia’s friends had yet arrived, so Garcia claims that a man and a woman who looks to have been from seats in Row C sat in his seats in Row S.

Garcia claims that the fan ignored his requests to vacate the seats, which the causes some yelling to start, which then started this fight.
Garcia is suing the Dodgers for negligence, since they weren’t able to instantly appear once the fight began and of course, the attackers for assault and battery.
This is a reminder to check out our Unwritten Rules to Dodger Stadium Safety.
