Witness In Attack Of Giants Fan Bryan Stow Dies Suddenly

LOS ANGELES (CBS / AP) — Los Angeles police say one of the witnesses to the attack of a San Francisco Giants fan outside Dodger Stadium on opening day has died.

Police Cmdr. Andy Smith said Matthew Lee died over the weekend from an allergic reaction after eating a peanut.

Twenty-nine-year-old Louie Sanchez and 30-year-old Marvin Norwood have been charged with mayhem, assault, battery and other counts in the beating of Stow. On Monday, a judge continued the request to reduce bail for Sanchez from $500,000 to $100,000.

A court document portrays Sanchez as leading a rampage against Giants fans during and after the March 31 game.

Sanchez’s attorney, Gilbert Quinones, said he had not seen enough evidence in the case to comment.

Arraignment for both men was set for Aug. 10.

    The poor man. It’s sad that no one told him there were nuts in the salad. A nut allergy is one of the worst. My condolences to his family and friends.

    Sounds fishy too me

    Marvin Norwood is a piece of WT from the trailer park.
    They need to send him back to Europe.

    Who made the salad?

  • Tiggy

    Why were there peanuts in the salad and why wasn’t he told about them? It’s very unlikely he would have eaten it if he was allergic.

  • Victoria

    Even though it is unrelated, this whole event has spun into an ugly mess with a lot of loss and sadness. Regarding the allergic reaction, people do not realize how life threatening allergies can be for people. Someone has to take responsibility as well as the person. Condolences to his family.
