According to The Blast, a 65-year-old violin instructor is suing the Los Angeles Dodgers for an alleged 2017 assualt at the hands of the team’s security.
The man claims a security guard violently grabbed him from behind and wrapped an arm around his neck as he attempted to get a miniature souvenir bat.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Marvin Palatt claims he was at Dodger Stadium on July 9, 2017 to celebrate his birthday.
Palatt says he approached a Dodgers employee for a voucher for a miniature souvenir bat for a student that was accompanying him to the game. That’s when, he claims, a Dodgers security guard “violently grabbed” him from behind and “wrapped his arm around” his neck.
He claims the security guard then slammed into a fence, fracturing his rib, and accused Palatt of resisting arrest. According to Palatt, several other security personnel came to the scene, forced his arms behind his back, and led him away.
Something is missing here. Normally security guards don’t randomly select elderly men to attack at games. Like I said, usually. Maybe this guy was giving security the eye.
