Elton John Concert Beating 'Victims' Were Brutal Aggressors ... Claims Attorney for Man Who Threw Punches

3:15 PM PT -- Attorney Glen T. Jonas came on "TMZ Live" to reiterate what he told us about what allegedly happened here -- namely, that the driver was the one who supposedly initiated this.
Jonas says the entire narrative is ass-backwards, because his client was simply defending the women he was with that night -- noting, if you hit women ... you'll get whooped. Because of how things have played out, though, Jonas says his client is getting harassed/attacked online.
It's interesting ... Jonas says the women who were allegedly attacked by the driver did, in fact, talk to cops and want to press charges against them. Thus far, however, police have only busted one person -- the man in the black shirt -- on nothing but a vandalism charge.
Unclear if and battery charges will be pursued against anyone -- as this seems to be turning into a he said, she said ... albeit with video evidence of at least one party getting physical.
The man who was seen in video brutally beating another man after an Elton John concert at Dodger Stadium last weekend has a VERY different story of what went down, and he says the alleged victims are really the villains.
Attorney Glen T. Jonas, who represents the man who's wearing a blue t-shirt in the video, tells TMZ, "The so-called 'victims' drove their SUV in a restricted area, hitting my client with the SUV mirror."
Jonas says his client didn't incite the husband and wife in the SUV. He says they got out of their vehicle and began screaming profanities, accusing his client and others of hitting their mirror.
Jonas says they then attacked his client and 2 women, adding, "The driver used a wrestling move, grabbed the woman by both legs and lifted her up, causing her head to smack the concrete." He says while this was going on, the wife choked and pulled the hair of the other woman.
The attorney says his client came to the aid of the woman whose head was smashed into the concrete. Jonas says the video only shows the end of the altercation when his client repeatedly punched the man.
Jonas' take is this ... "An initial aggressor that loses a fight is not a victim, he's just a bully that earned his karma."
Jonas does not want to ID his client, because of the heat he's taking on social media.
So far, only one of the involved parties -- the man in a black t-shirt -- has been arrested for vandalism after allegedly damaging a phone someone was using to record the incident.
