make a speedy recovery and let's hope Bando gets banged up for a long time
Man sentenced for assaulting ‘Stargate Atlantis’ star Jason Momoa
A 22-year-old man from Venice, CA pleaded no contest today to one count of assault, stemming from a 2008 fight with actor Jason Momoa. Momoa is best known for his roles as Jason Ioane in Baywatch Hawaii and as Ronon Dex in Stargate Atlantis. He's also the father of two children with former Cobsy kid Lisa Bonet.
According to the District Attorney's office, Dominic Bando got into a verbal altercation back in November with the actor at the Bird Cafe in Los Angeles. Bando hit Momoa in the face with a pint beer glass. Momoa needed 140 stitches during reconstructive surgery.
Bando was given a five-year state prison term
I would have given that jerk more for what he did to Jason. 140 stitches ouch.
Thanks for the update. Five years, good. I think some restitution would not be out of line. Restitution to Jason to pay for the medical bills.
5 years is steep, but the bottle could have cost Jason his acting career or even his life. A broken glass can cut just like a knife. He got Jason in the face, the neck and jugluar isn't that far away.Originally Posted by Willow'Cat
Anyway, glad Jason didn't lose an eye or anything. And five years for aggravated assault? Do the crime, do the time. Period.
I have had quite the opposite experience, where the insurance companies have really gone out of their way to help.
I agree. Chances are the guy won't do a full five years anyway.Originally Posted by prion
