Some 50 supporters gathered in Lodi court Tuesday, where two men were arraigned on charges related to a ruckus at a weekend bullfight in Thornton.

The polite crowd cheered afterward outside the courthouse, when defense attorney Randy Thomas explained that the men are only facing misdemeanors and would be released from jail Tuesday evening.

    Looks like there might have been a little to much action for PETA to handle. There is a bloodless bull fight ring on Escalon-Bellota Rd. The idea is for the contestent to pull the bulls tail 5 times, the cowboy wins a and the bull trots off a field, and to show the their appreciation, the bull ends up at In and Out Burger. I have a feeling that if a licence is needed, you might have seen the last of the "bull fights". Maybe even better, put up a cage and a couple of fighters in it, nobody seems to care how much blood flows from a human, or cares. Blood and booze an unbeatable combination.

    I agree! I wonder if the people that attended the event could serve ACI with a class action lawsuit for dirupting the event and potentially causing bodily harm, not to mention much undue stress. Not sure if you were present, but a few years ago a bull got loose from the corrals and made it's way through the crowd hurting several people. Those wack-job, tree hugging people would do something like that and this guy certainly fit the bill!

    I BEEN GOING TO BULL FIGHTS FOR MANY YEARS AND I HAVN'T SEEN OR HEARD OF ANY TROUBLE FROM THE EVENT. IF THERE WAS ANYTHING BEING DONE ILLEGALLY THEN WHY DON'T THE DEPUTIES OUTSIDE PATROLLING THE EVENT STOP IT. AS FAR AS FOR THE DEPUTY THAT TACKLED ROCHA HE SHOULDN'T TAKE THE LAW INTO HIS OWN HANDS. HE NEEDS TO BE MORE TRAINED TO EVENTS LIKE THIS TO HANDLE THE SITUTION BETTER..

    This was the right outcome. This guy dressed in street clothes runs into the ring, who's to say he wasn't some crazy trying to hurt someone. I think it was self defense. I think that none of these charges should have ever happened. Cop or not you can't blindside someone and think they are not going to fight back. These are just good citizens doing nothing wrong.

    Cogito if anyone should be charged with inciting a riot it should be that idiot who caused this in the first place. What did he think that we would just hand him what he wanted and blow kisses at him as he drove off into the sunset. Hopefully Thomas decides to pursue it a little further.

    This outcome was agreeable with me and I am glad to see that the LNS printed more of what happened instead of glorifying what the law enforcement and ACI did. It's finally printed that the guy entered illegally, didn't posses a warrent to obtain the evidence he wanted and that a police officer tackeled Rocha from behind which led to the confrontation and then the charges. It's good to see that supporters showed up and were calm and collective during the outcome. I'm looking forward to the next bullfight...hopefully I will see many of you there.

    Where are the charges for inciting a riot against the guy who jumped into the ring? Isn't he the one who started this entire, unnecessary mess?
