Pair Charged With Attack at Dodger Stadium After November Concert
Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón and Los Angeles Police Chief Michel Moore announced today that two men have been charged in connection with a melee outside of Dodger Stadium following a concert last November.
“What started out as a night of entertainment and revelry ended in violence. Verbal disagreements should never take such a dangerous turn,” District Attorney Gascón said. “I want to thank the LAPD for their thorough investigation and our prosecutors who meticulously reviewed the case to determine what charges should be filed. We will continue to work with our law enforcement partners to ensure that our entertainment venues are safe for all.”
“I am proud of the vigilant work done by Northeast detectives to investigate this vicious attack and bring the attackers to justice with the support of the District Attorney’s Office,” Chief Moore said. “Our commitment to reducing violent crime and holding those responsible accountable will continue to be unwavering.”
Reece Hopkin (dob 8/15/84) and Chad Reeves (dob 3/20/81) were each charged in case BA513971 with one felony count of battery with serious bodily injury. Hopkin also faces one felony count of vandalism or destruction of property.
Both men are expected to be arraigned on May 15 in Department 30 of the Foltz Criminal Justice Center. The case was filed on April 12.
On November 17, 2022, there was a dispute between a woman and a 64-year-old man in the parking lot of Dodger Stadium. The defendants got involved and allegedly began assaulting the man who suffered serious injuries.
As the defendants walked away, a man who was recording the incident on his phone followed the pair. Hopkin is accused of grabbing the man’s phone and throwing it on the ground.
