Somewhat non news, but glad to see the tool got arrested for the sucker punch. Figured the guy had some sort of head injury.

Amazing. For all those saying the mouthy guy deserved it most likely are bullies too.

I have 6 brothers whom all would beat the hell out of eachother but never once laid a hand on another man. I was in situations where I was waiting for a punch to be thrown and they just kept their stance (and chest puffed out) and the verbal attacker always walked away - even the ones who would physically push my brothers - they would just keep saying; "I'm not going to fight you."

So for this jackass to allow words to get the best of him, just shows that if he did this in public....what happens behind closed doors.

This is someones son, brother, husband, boyfriend or father.....I am pretty sure all of you "sucker punch" supporters would feel very different if you were getting the call that this was your relative.

I am glad that he will be okay and the other one will do jail time.....it probably just saved someone else from another beating...say maybe his girlfriend or child?

ELLAYALLDAY- You seem like a very caring person. Do you give your boyfriend reach arounds when you are making love. Come to think of it i bet your the catcher, or do you just like the balls slapping your chin. Either or you seem quite lovely.

Ok...I watched this over and over. Who hit the guy? Wasn't one of the body guards...sooooo...what was going on between the two parties before we saw the punch? And btw...that was no sucker punch! Mr. Tough guy was wasted and taunting everyone and it's really no surprise someone hauled off and hit him.

But yeah...at the same time, you can't be hitting someone just because they're taunting you. It's still against the law

This guy is screwed. Not only will he go to prison for a few years...he'll also get sued. It's going to cost him hundreds of thousands of dollars over the years to come. His life is basically ruined.

TMZ did LA a public service by helping to get this jagoff caught.

He did sucker punch him and then some. That guy came at him like a bull. Actually, he's damn lucky he didn't kill him. He could be sitting in LA County for a homicide the way that boy's head hit the ground. He might have a nice case against the club for overserving him, if he was trashed. He must have been if he didn't see that coming. He didn't even try to move.

And I don't care what anybody says. That big dude was totally out of order. Who cares what the guy was saying. He's not going to talk anybody to death.

That's the problem with the mentality that populates these clubs. Everybody wants to be a gangster and live by some code they've concocted by watching music videos, movies and tv shows. In the meantime, they act more like Snooki.

First off, the guy that got his ass handed to him deserved less, but not much. Ive seen to many of these beer balled idiots run there mouth because they watch way too much MMA, put on their TAPOUT clothing, and get there ass handed to them in a much similar fashion. The attacker deserves an award, then promptly bent over and forcefully inserted said reward into anus, and repeat. They call it a sucker punch for a reason.

It sucks for this guy eddie because usually when u punch some one in the face once you usually dont fracture their skull the most you do is break the guys nose or jaw or something like that but He must hit hard as **** but I bet this dudes skull got fractured when he hit the ground idk for sure though. It sucks for this guy because he's going to go to jail and be sued but the guy who got punched is never gonna live this down and that guy is a punk I hope he knows to not run his mouth when hes drunk and around other drunk people because thats what happens. Eddie wont get attempted murder charges on him idk what people are talking about he just punched him once.

I agree 100% with Robzilla! If you look for trouble, trouble will find you. This guy did the same thing Maverick did in TOP GUN, he wrote a check his body can't cash. Only this fool didn't have Goose to back him up, that's why he got dropped like a sack of potato's
