Five-year sentence for man who attacked 'Stargate Atlantis' actor Jason Momoa
A man who struck one of the stars of the TV show "Stargate Atlantis” in the face with a beer glass -- and left the actor needing 140 stitches -- pleaded no contest to assault with a deadly weapon and was sentenced to five years in state prison.
In addition, Dominic Bando admitted an allegation of great bodily injury to actor Jason Momoa, according to Deputy Dist. Atty. Guillermo Santiso.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Judith Champagne sentenced Bardo to a five-year state prison term and ordered a restitution hearing, set for next month.
On Nov. 15, 2008, Bando got into a verbal altercation with Momoa at the Bird Cafe in Los Angeles. Prosecutors say Bando then struck Momoa in the face with a pint beer glass, which shattered.
Momoa needed 140 stitches during reconstructive surgery.
