Dodgers Suspects Were the Aggressors, 'Very Drunk'

7/22/2011 4:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The two suspects who have been arrested for allegedly brutally beating a San Francisco Giants fan were "very drunk" at the time of the attack ... this according to law enforcement sources.


Our sources say Louie Sanchez and Marvin Norwood were not sitting near Bryan Stow during the game.  We're told the men had been "drinking heavily" during the game, and once it was over they -- along with their group -- were harassing everyone they saw wearing San Francisco Giants clothing and gear.

Our law enforcement sources say Stow and his group were mouthing off before the attack, but Sanchez and Norwood were "the primary aggressors."

There was not one particular comment that triggered the fight.  We're told both sides were "talking s**t"" on the opposing teams.

The two men, we're told have both made "some incriminating statements" while in custody, although they have not confessed.

We're told there are no other suspects and the LAPD believes they now truly have the right guys. 

As for how cops caught the suspects, we're told there were over 800 CLUES the LAPD sifted through, and they led to their capture. 

And one final thing ... We're told some of Stow's injuries may not have been caused by fists, but rather by hitting the hard surface on the ground.

A lot for Dodger fans to be embarrassed about right now. These guys are disgusting.

On the other hand....maybe Mr. Mcourt should be the one getting to know the Dodger fans who wear blue for different reasons.

"And one final thing ... We're told some of Stow's injuries may not have been caused by fists, but rather by hitting the hard surface on the ground."

That's been known since the very beginning. What rock has TMZ been living under all these months?

Is this Marvin and his wife Dorene (the get away driver)?



Their facebook pages are "currently unavailable".

It's done they just exposed Stow was a trash talking Giants fan. There shouldn't even be a punishment this harsh for the offenders, it was a fight and it's clear their intention was to shut Stow up. They weren't trying to kill the douche, this sort of stuff happens a lot at games and just because Stow can't fight, his pathetic family makes it look like he was attacked.

These two are vile, degenerate, mouth-breathing cruds that belong in a meat grinder.

Worthless excuses for human beings...cover them with peanut-butter and let pigs eat their carcasses!

Enough said!!!

"They were very drunk"?

Wasn't that assumed by all? Also, by the way the suspects seem to claim it, it's as if they feel they deserve a pass or something, ha!

"We were drunk, ok? Dude was popping off, I can't be responsible for what the beer made me do from that point on!"

Right. And for the past 4 weeks while Gio was being blamed, these a-holes probably laughed about it with each other. They're going to be hit pretty hard as they should be, but I'm not sure I see the incentive to turn themselves in though, they would have burned from the beginning.

I wish I was one of their friends though. I'd have me a new Porsche by now! lol!

Typical Hollywood So-Cal rock'n'roll punks posting here. can't tell the difference between trash talking and gan violence. Maybe if you spent less time worrying about other teams fans and how tough you think you are and more time showing up to games and supporting your team wouldn't be broke and in the tank.

Also, turns out the 2 suspects have a history of spousal abuse, but I guess that is just their way of shutting cadastems mother up. It's her own pathetic fault if she can't take a bitch slap or two.

Well said. I've said it to that effect 100 times but it doesn't seem to sink in. Cowards. Like I said, they hide behind their guns and their homies. Mano y mano is an ancient act that is rarely practiced anymore.

If your mouth write checks your fists can't cash, then you were wrong and you lose. But once you're down, it's over. Vice versa, I've knocked a guy out then went over to make sure he was o.k. after. It isn't like that anymore, and sadly, with at least 100 people looking on, not one person had the human decency to knock these thugs out and stop the attempted murder. Not ONE.

There are some people that the DRINK just isn't good for and these guy are a prime example of just that. If you get drunk and have to beat some guy with because of the team he likes you should STOP DRINKING NOW. ...Got that NOW...get some help.
