Dodger Stadium was the site of another incident of violence Sunday, when a man was beaten after a minor traffic accident following Sunday night's game between the Dodgers andSt. Louis Cardinals.

The victim was treated for non-life-threatening injuries at a hospital, and a pregnant woman who was riding in the car was also taken to the hospital for observation. Both of them have been released. Four men in their 20s have been arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon. 

The incident is the latest example of violence at local sporting events through the years. While the one Sunday appears to have been a possible act of road rage, other incidents have involved confrontations between rival fans or celebrations gone terribly awry.
