Glad to hear he was arrested. The guy delivered a punch that might have killed the guy. He was lucky in a sense that this was a skull fracture. The guy could have been up on homicide charges, instead of assault.

A tough guy would have at least got in his face and give him a little push first. This way you show the guy you are ready to fight him if he wants to go. This guy who threw the punch was scared. That is why he RAN and punched him and then RAN off ... no matter how you slice it ... it was a sneak attack because no one expected it. A tough guy likes to get hit first and then attach back period. A trained fighter likes a fair fight. This guy deserves some time to realize he could have killed his fellow human being for no reason.

Clearly the suspect has out of control tendencies and rather than take a punch at someone he needs to grow the hell up and be a man rather than a little BOY who's acting out with a temper tantrum. I don't give a crap if someone spoke smack or not, you don't go around punching people out unless you do plan on going to jail. Mr. Big Man just got himself in a heap of trouble and he justly deserves going to jail for a very long time. What if he killed the guy? Is it worth throwing your life away over someone talking smack? Lock the prick up for a long azz time. He deserves it and I hope that while in the pokey someone takes a shot at his azz. Get my drift??

Lol @ the folks here saying he was "sucker-punched". The homeless a-hole was staring right at the guy who punched him right in the jaw, straight on! This was no "sucker-punch", lol. As a matter of fact, it could not be any LESS of a sucker punch! I also think the homeless guy should have backed off abd shut up - instead, he just kept charging up, cursing at the guys.
Homeless guy got what was coming to him imo. Put me on that jury.

That dude that threw the sucker punch is a bitch, he's probably related to the azzwipes that beat up the guy at the Dodgers game cuz he was wearing SF gear.

We had a couple incidents near here where one guy punched a father in the head because they were verbally arguing after their kids hockey game, the guy who decided to 'end' the verbal argument killed the other father in front of his and other kids. Another guy was bumped into at a local donuts shop and the other guy was so offended he hit the guy sending him to the ground where he hit his head on the pavement, he died. So you morons saying that's what you get when you 's**t talk' are idiots, then again most of you are just talking 's**t' yourselves.

....I see, so now the rule is you have to tell a guy that you going to hit him, or it's considered a "sucker punch???."

A sucker bunch is when you tap someone on the back and as he turns around "PLOW." A sucker bunch is when you just walk up to some random guy that didn't even know he was in a fight and "PLOW."

The mouthy boy that got put to sleep knew that he was in a possible physical confrontation, and to add insult to injury was looking straight at the guy that put him to sleep.

This was not a sucker punch , this was just a guy writing checks with his mouth his ass could not cash.

It's nice to know that most of TMZ posters have vaginas, and I'm not just talking about the females.......Artofwar

This story and the other one about what's her name using the "n" word repeated just drive home what low lifes a significant percentage of TMZ's posters are, not that i didn't already know that... but hearing them spout off their hatred and racism in the comments is a good reminder of who the real douche bags are here.

I was at the club, the douche bag who got knocked out deserved it. He was drunk inside the club groping females and tried to grab my gf. He also made passes at "Eddie's" gf/wife and tried to grope her. I didn't get a chance to get my hands on the P.O.S. because he was escorted out but i would have broke his face myself. Ask yourself, if a drunken douche bag grabbed you loved one in a club, as a man, you wouldn't smash his face in?
I would have done worse to the prick. I hope "Eddie" gets a good lawyer and that other douche get's brain damage next time!

OK. TMZ. You report on these two no names but not the story about the owner of the Dynasty club in Inglewood being shot to death in his Rolls Royce in Baldwin Hills. What's up with that?! Get on the story.
High end black folk story. Get me details dang it!
