Dodger Beating Suspects Allegedly Cut Stow's Tongue

7/25/2011 4:43 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The two men suspected of beating San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow allegedly cut his tongue, put out one of his eyes and sliced his nose, ear and lip ... this according to prosecutors.


Marvin Norwood and Louie Sanchez were charged in connection with the attack on Friday ... and in the charging documents, officials claim the men "did cut and disable the tongue, and put out an eye and slit the nose, ear and lip."

In the docs, Prosecutors also claim the men  "caused Bryan Stow to become comatose due to brain injury and to suffer paralysis."

And that's not it -- according to the docs, Sanchez also attacked two other people in addition to Stow the day of the infamous beating ... but the extent of their injuries, if any, aren't known. He faces two additional charges for the other alleged attacks.

Both Norwood and Sanchez have each been charged with three felonies pertaining to Stow -- one count of mayhem, assault by means likely to produce great bodily injury and battery with serious bodily injury.

"cut/disable tongue, put out an eye..." is a legal reference.

looking at 7-8 yrs for punishment (google it)?!?! that's got to be a joke, right?! it's unfortunate that an attorney or some politician can't play with words and make gang activity/association somehow against the law & any participaton a an automatic life sentence. bet that would EVENTUALLY deter some people from that life.

That is unbelievable. I think they should get life in prison. Sentences are too light in this country. There's no deterrent anymore. I will admit that I like WaxOnWhacksOff's eye for an eye solution.

as much as i dont agree with the beating.... this guy Stow was a piece of **** person anyways.... all the **** talking he did and ppl feel sorry for him? like i said the severity of the beating in question is horrible... but sometimes a guy gets what he deserves and clearly he got the worst end of the stick.

Maybe you should get your ass beat, so you will know how it feels.

The suspects in this case are only looking at serving 9 YEARS prison because the Los Angeles County Dist. Attorneys Office is not persuing attempted murder but on a lesser charge of mayhem. WTF is wrong with our judicial system? I think the public needs to put the heat on the L.A Dist. Att. Office. These sick ******** not only kicked and stomped about his body and head, they cut his tongue out, slit his lips, ears and nose, and left him for dead.

The Prosecution has NO BALLS! they are limp and pathetic. This man will never recover from his injuries, which is very unfortunate because two animals decided to rob a man and his family of the enjoyment of life. They should be tried for 664 P.C 187 P.C, if they are gang members, thats an additional charge, so lets lay this out people. att. murder, ADW, Battery with great bodily injury, mayhem.. and the list can go on...

I hope through public pressure the prosecution changes its mind, guess they have weak D.A's that don't have the experience or the balls to try these suspects to the fullist.

As for the suspects, I hope I hope they suffer the same injuries.

Everyone remembers the Asian ex-wife who drugged her ex-husband, tied him up and cut off his penis.. She is looking at life without the possibility of parole.. Brians suspects will walk in less then 5 years after nearly KILLING BRIAN..

I am extremely frustrated and sick to my stomach that these animals will not prosecuted to the fullist. I think the L.A County D.A's Office should explain to the public why they are charging these suspects with a lessor crime.

The public is extremely upset, you can see it in what everyone has to say on blogs. Whats next a change of venue????

Signed..... PISSED OFF!

These guys should be put to sleep. When a dog bites someone this bad, they put it down. They have no regard for human life. The mother should wake up and see that her son is a menus to society!
