Beating Victim: 'I Rather Eat Feces Than Dodger Dog'

6/28/2011 6:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The man who had a verbal altercation with San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow at Dodger Stadium shortly before Stow was brutally attacked claims Stow was inciting Dodger fans by screaming, "I rather eat my own feces than eat a Dodger dog."

TMZ has obtained a text message sent yesterday by Juan Banda, the man who had the pre-attack run-in with Stow in the stands. TMZ posted video of the altercation Monday morning.

A friend of Banda's texted him that he saw Banda on TMZ.  Banda texted back "They are not saying they are looking for me....right?  Reason I was arguing w him was because he [Stow] crossed the line ... he yelled out, 'I rather eat my own ficies (sic) than eat a dodger dog.'"

Banda continued, "I asked Merced [a friend Banda was with at the game] to watch my back and told him [Stow] it was one thing to root for your team but you are crosing (sic) the line ... he didn't say much ... neither him or his buddies who were with him ... they were just trying to excuse his words."

Banda continued texting:  "Nothing happen and I went back to my seat. ... What I can't understand is where were his buddies when that [the attack] happened ... he was not alone during the game ... he was with 3 or 4 friends ... he did have a mouth though!"

And Banda texted, "Maybe he said the wrong thing to the wrong guys!"

We tried contacting Stow's lawyer, but so far our calls have not been returned.

@Scrum: The sad thing about this is that the victim is probably a pretty cool guy and he THAT HAD 16 to 18 beers flowing through his system and started talking sh*t and this was not even his house respect R E S P E C T.

I don't care WHAT Brian Stow may or may not have said while sitting in the stands at Dodger Stadium - NO ONE DESERVES TO GET BEAT WITHIN AN INCH OF THEIR LIFE!!!!! When they catch the s*** who did this, and they will, I only hope they have the decency to admit what they did and face the consequences without dragging everyone through a lengthy trial.

Moderators: Please REMOVE the post from "Bubbles The Chimp" It is offensive and uncalled for. Thank you.

Dodgers fans come to Giants game in SF all of the time and talk smack and act disrespectful towards our fans and team. That is to be expected, it's been going on forever. Only jerks and A-holes feel the need to intimidate them and teach them lessons about respect. So what if Stow made a remark about Dodger Dogs? Maybe he was just trying to be funny and talk a little trash. That is what fans do, it's not a big deal. He wasn't cursing or insulting anyone personally based off any accounts. Screw Banda and all of the people on here placing the blame on Stow. Also, why does TMZ seem so intent on painting Stow as an instigator. Must be a lot of Dodgers fans on the TMZ staff.

This video shows NOTHING incriminating Stow. Banda's text was probably BS to cover his own provocative behavior that is clearly picked up by the camera.

What is with this Banda guy? Saying that the victim "crossed the line" by insulting a dodger dog? So the guy said he would rather eat his own feces than eat a dodger dog. So friggin what? Who does this Banda idiot think HE is to go over and confront someone like that? Something tells me he is more involved in this than he wants to admit.

I heard worst than what Stow said. When the drawing of the suspect first came out it resembles Banda a lot more than Ramirez, complete with a Dodger apparel. Had a strong feeling the cops got their guy.

Even if he mouthed off it was over a hot dog. HE OFFENDED A HOT DOG. Maybe they were offended that he offended the hot dog in English?

I knew this jerk Stow wasn't completely innocent, who knows what else he said or DID to provoke the fight. Big mouth Stow learned his lesson now. He ate more than feces, he ate a beat down and now is a sf giant vegetable.

C'mon Cris, get real. This video shows NOTHING supporting Banda's claim that Stow said ANYTHING at all. It does, however, clearly show Banda intimidating Stow.
