A suspect in the severe beating of Giants fan Bryan Stow last year outside Dodger Stadium was recorded during a police interrogation telling his mother over the phone that he was involved in the attack and likely “going down.”
During a preliminary hearing Wednesday, prosecutors showed video of Marvin Norwood speaking to his mother on a cellphone, the Los Angeles Times reported.
“I got arrested for that Dodger Stadium thing,” he told her. “I was involved. To a certain extent I was.”
Stow was attacked outside the Los Angeles stadium following the March 2011 season opener. Massive head trauma caused brain damage for the Santa Cruz paramedic and father of two. He was hospitalized for nearly a year and transferred to a rehab facility this past March.
Louie Sanchez also was arrested in connection with the incident. Both he and Norwood have pleaded not guilty.
Los Angeles police detective Howard Jackson was the first witness called to testify, the Times reported. He had been interrogating Norwood on the video that was shown in court Wednesday.
Norwood reportedly told his mother Sanchez also had been arrested.
“Pretty sure I’m going down for it,” he told her. “I’m sorry.”
