No felony charges for four in L.A. incident
The Los Angeles County District Attorney declined to press felony charges against the four men arrested after an altercation Sunday outside Dodger Stadium, according to a report in the Los Angeles Times.

Police had arrested Arthur Morales, 30; Alan Trujillo, 29; Ulisis Briceno, 26; and Alejandro Briceno, 29, after the game Sunday on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.

The case has been referred to the Los Angeles City Attorney for misdemeanor consideration after conflicting witness statements and claims of self-defense. In addition, the injuries suffered were minor.

The incident reportedly started as a fender-bender between cars filing out of the stadium parking lot following Sunday's game between the Dodgers and Cardinals. A confrontation over responsibility for the accident escalated into a four-on-one assault, according to police.

The victim of the assault was not identified.
