'Stargate' Actor

Victim of Brutal Attack

11/21/2008 5:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

One of the stars of "Stargate: Atlantis" got his face ripped open in a ferocious bar fight -- and now the man who allegedly did the attacking has officially been charged with a crime.

Jason Momoa, who appeared on shows like "Baywatch" and "Stargate: Atlantis" received 140 stitches after Dominic Bando allegedly cracked him in the face with a pint glass at a West Hollywood cafe last week. Cops say the whole thing escalated after "a verbal altercation" earlier in the night.

Now the Los Angeles County D.A. has charged Bando with assault with a deadly weapon causing great bodily injury. Momoa -- Lisa Bonet's baby daddy -- needed reconstructive surgery to fix his face.

Bando, who was already on probation for after he was convicted of gun charges in March, will be arraigned December 10. He could get up to seven years in state prison.

You know you're D list when it takes a week for it to be reported that you received 140 stitches. Even Ken Paves who only got 7 was reported in less time.

To the first poster, at least he is on a list period. Your probably some bum on welfare waiting for your house to get foreclosed on.

Go get a job.

The story doesn't say that Jason got blind sided. I'm sure you all know if the guy didn't hit him like a coward, Jason would have swept the floor with his #$%!! Get well soon!!

He's so hot. Even hotter wihout the dreads and facial hair. But more importantly, I'm glad they got the person who did this.
