This is NOT mutual combat...the guy was sucker punched. No matter what went on in the club this attacker needs to do some jail time.

Of course the civil suit won't be pretty either :)

By looking at the video you can bet big $$$$ that the guy who threw the punch will be doing some hard time behind bars. Hopefully he can protect himself on the inside because he is going to satisfy sexually many many many BIG BUBBAS. Lol

The guy went "back to work" on his face. The puncher used excessive force under the cir***stances. 500K warrant. That's pretty stout. Seems kind of excessive. Depends on his "priors" i suppose. btw- Jason, thanks for "breaking" this story on TMZ live. That part was funny.

This guy NEEDED to be arrested!!! It wasn't even a fight, it was a blind sided punch the guy didn't even see coming. I hope his gf dumped his dumb asss for doing this. If not, shows you what kind of chick she is.

This is so excellent!! Justice served fool! I can just see the guy when the cops came to his front door! I bet he acted like a *****! Probably hid in his girlfriends, I mean boyfriends closet. No officer that wasn't me who sucker-punched that guy. I wasn't at the club that night I was home watching The Bible Hour on cable TV.

lmao, good!

He's going to have to spend at least $50 grand to post bail and he'll never see a penny of it again. But unless he's planning on skipping out and running it'll be a waste of money. The douche may as well just start serving his time now in county jail awaiting trial and get credit for it. Because he's going to be going on a nice multi year holiday to CA prison.

If he quickly takes a plea deal maybe he'll be out by 2015?

And Lindsay's haters wonder why CA doesn't want to waste precious resources locking Lindsay Lohan up in jail, or prison for years.
