'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.

TMZ, what do you mean "he appeared on shows like Stargate:Atlantis?" The show is still on and so is he.

Although with 140 stitches it sounds like his face was mutilated, it might not have been as bad as it sounds. Being a celeb, he probably had a top plastic surgeon doing the repair, and since it was his face, the surgeon would use lots of tiny stitches to minimize facial scarring. Not saing it wasn't bad... just not as bad as it may sound.
