Suspects Charged in L.A. Dodgers Beating

7/22/2011 5:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dodgers beating suspects Louie Sanchez and Marvin Norwood have just been charged in connection with the brutalization of San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow ... TMZ has learned.


The L.A. County D.A. filed the charges against the suspects moments ago.

As we previously reported, the two suspects were arrested yesterday. They are both still in custody on $500,000 bail.

UPDATE: Both men were each charged with 3 felonies -- one count of mayhem, one count of assault by means likely to produce great bodily injury, AND one count of battery with serious bodily injury.

The complaint alleges both men "personally inflicted great bodily injury on Stow." The men are set to be arraigned first thing Monday morning.

If convicted, Sanchez faces up to 9 years in prison and Norwood faces up to 8 years in prison.

As for the woman who was also arrested in connection with the case -- 31-year-old Doreen Sanchez -- charges are still pending.

0722_small_conference_launchMayor Antonio Villaraigosa and Police Chief Charlie Beck addressed the charges today in a news conference -- acknowledging they were mistaken when they arrested the original suspect, Giovanni Ramirez.

I call for Chief Beck's resignation.

He has to learn that a sitting police chief can't stand in front of a phalanx of news cameras and declare they have arrested someone without having a case to even charge that person with the crime.

It is police work at its worst, and Chief Beck is much to inexperienced to serve as the head of a police department the size of the LAPD.

Maybe Beck could go be chief of the Culver City department.

Both of these guys have been in trouble before...apparently, they're bad guys. Now they each face three felony counts. Here's hoping they get the maximum sentences. And hope the woman gets sent to prison too.

man I really wish they could find a pic of Brian Stowe that didn't make him look like a smug arrogant douchewad.

They should be charged with murder. They might as well have killed the guy for what he and his family have been left with.

These guys deserve to be punished but saying that they should go to jail for life is rough. This Stow guy was being an ******** too. I can bet he egged these guys on. We saw a clip of him getting in a fans face DURING the game. I can assure you that he was even more brave afterwards in the parking lot, and for those who say he wasn't then I beg you to go to any sporting event and wait in the parking lot afterwards. Stow was probably three sheets when this 'attack' took place. What was his BAC when he went to the hospital? How do we know for a fact that he didn't goat these other two into it?

WTF, 8 AND 9 YEARS? Are you kidding me? This man's life has been ruined for both him and his family. I am convinced they are really nuts in Califoria. Why don't they just give them a friggen hug and send them for counseling??? This sickens me. Hope some big buck in prison teaches these animals a lesson that they are not likely to forget for a very long time.

I agree with Kiddo, stop making Cali look bad. The bad guy looks bad, the good guy looks bad and the po po, well no surprise there, they look bad too. Enough, why are you sensationalizing this story. Why not go after sex offenders or drunk driver's who kill innocent people?

No attempted murder? Parole violations? Assault with a deadly weapon? Associating with known felons and gang members? It's like they are just doing the bare minimum. I don't blame the police in this case, I blame the prosecutor.
