Ramon Heredia Cops to Smashing Beer Bottle into Head of Cowboys Fan at Chargers Stadium

Just before his trial for assault with a deadly weapon was to begin in San Diego Tuesday, an Orange County man reversed his earlier plea and said he was guilty of smashing a beer bottle over the head of a Cowboys fan in the Qualcomm Stadium parking lot.

Ramon Heredia, 42, now faces up to 4 years in prison at his scheduled May 9 sentencing.

Ramon Heredia, Chargers Fan in OC, to Stand Trial for Beer-Bottle Attack on Cowboys Fan

Heredia had previously been referred to as a Chargers fan, but reports by City News Service and a San Diego television station indicate the defendant, like 31-year-old victim Joshua Zumwalt, was a follower of the Cowboys.

Zumwalt testified during the case's preliminary hearing that he and some friends had a friendly encounter with Heredia's group of tailgating fans before the Sept. 29 Chargers-Cowboys game at Qualcomm. After San Diego dispatched Dallas 30-21, the 6-foot-5 Zumwalt says he was "talking trash" with some of his friends who are Chargers' fans when he believed he was sucker-punched in the side of the head.

He did not discover until later that he'd been hit once by an unknown fellow who has not been brought to justice and a second time by a beer bottle wielded by Heredia, whose attack was captured on cellphone video taken by onlookers in the stadium parking lot.

It's fucking riffraff scum like this (gangbanging cholos masquerading as sports fans) that take the fun out of going to sporting events.

The cell phone video of this attack is posted on YouTube for anyone who wants to see it (it's very graphic). Sorry I don't have a direct link but it should be easy to find with the right search terms. I've always thought that football and alcohol are a bad mix. Check out the video and you'll see what I mean.

I would go one step further and say that alcohol is a bad mix with any sport. There are places in South America where alcohol is outright banned from the stadiums because of the drunken shenanigans of rabid soccer, er futbol fans.
