One man was seriously injured during a fight with another man outside Dodger stadium following a game that ended early Saturday morning, police said.

A 47-year-old father of four was on life support after getting into a dispute with a man in the Dodger stadium parking lot, reported ABC7.

The victim was identified by his wife as Rafael Reyna. Police said they are searching for a man in his 20s who may have driven off in a white SUV, possibly a Toyota 4Runner.

“He was hit and his head hit the ground and caused a skull fracture, and now his brain is swelling. He’s bleeding on the brain,” his wife Christel Reyna told the ABC7.

She said she was on the phone with her husband as he was leaving the station and heard arguing. “I was hearing the arguing happening and then I heard like a smack, a crack. It sounded like a baseball bat, and then I heard him start moaning,” she said.

The Dodgers lost 5-4 against the Arizona Diamondbacks in the longest regular-season game in the stadium’s history. The  game, which stretched for slightly more than 6 hours, ended shortly after 1:30 am on Saturday.

  1. There’s more to this story that I know of. Let’s see if it all comes out

  2. This makes no sense. How could he fracture his skull at Dodger Stadium, but for some reason he was walking out of the police station? Why, a fractured skull should get him to the ER, not the police station? And some “crack” was heard, like a club on the head, and he moans. And you say the skull was broken at Dodger Stadium? This is undecipherable writing:

    ” ‘He was hit and his head hit the ground and caused a skull fracture, and now his brain is swelling. He’s bleeding on the brain,’ ” his wife Christel Reyna told the ABC7.

    “She said she was on the phone with her husband as he was leaving the station and heard arguing. “I was hearing the arguing happening and then I heard like a smack, a crack. It sounded like a baseball bat, and then I heard him start moaning,” she said.”

  3. Station = Stadium. It’s just a typo.
