Frank McCourt Blamed for Dodger Stadium Beating

5/24/2011 2:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The family of the man who was brutally beaten outside Dodger Stadium in March blames Frank McCourt and his financial hijinks for the incident and is suing McCourt and the Dodgers.


The family of Bryan Stow claims the Dodgers were forced to cut services because of McCourt's alleged "mismanagement and family woes."  One of the casualties, according to the suit, was "a major downscaling of security forces at the stadium and surrounding parking lot."

The suit also claims McCourt, the Dodgers and the other defendants "had reason to know of gang and other criminal activity on its premises" and to "take reasonable security precautions." The family claims the Dodgers "could have prevented the attack."

According to the docs, filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Stow's family also claims there was "inadequate lighting" in the parking lot which "presented a perfect opportunity to commit a variety of crimes."

In the docs, the Stow family claims alcohol may have played a factor in the attack -- and points out the Dodgers have "ceased the 'half-off' beer promotion due to the criminal activity at Dodger Stadium."

The family seeks unspecified damages.

No amount of security at Dodger Stadium is going to help until we get these f*&$^$g illegal aliens OUT OF THE U.S. This is just one more blatant example of how they come here, take every benefit they are entitled to and still cause nothing but trouble. Seriously!!! How many times does this have to happen at Dodger Stadium and everywhere else across the country?? How many illegal alien murders, assaults, rapes, etc are we going to put up with until we do something? How much is enough????

I have attended NUMEROUS Dodger games. There's always an element of tension with the stupid ass cholos. Its something that should have been fixed eons ago, but it took a poor many receiving a traumatic brain injury to finally have the McCourt PR camp put forward some ****ty $100k. F&^% the McCourts. Fix the DODGERS already! Stupid ghetto ass team...

You people don't want the Stadium to pay for this man's Medical costs and family pain and suffering? If you broke your leg in my yard, You would sue my Insurance Co. Also, tell me these thugs who beat him had a criminal record and we will add the City, County and State to the responsible parties. They should have still been in Prison, not out looking for an innocent patron to rob and beat half to death.
