Two men who are accused of beating a fan at an Orioles game last year danced to the song "YMCA" as their victim lay bleeding with a fractured skull on a concrete floor below them, the man alleges in a $5 million lawsuit filed last week. Matthew Fortese, who was 25 at the time of the alleged attack, says Gregory Fleishman and Michael David Bell taunted him and his date during a game between the Orioles and the Washington Nationals last May at Camden Yards. When the Hagerstown man tried to confront them, he says in the lawsuit, Fleishman "sucker punched" him in the head, sending him to intensive care.

After reading the recent investigation into parking violations in Baltimore City ("Parking violations bring in $13.5M for Baltimore City," Dec. 21), I thought I would share my story on the issue. On Oct. 25, I was hurrying to class when I noticed a parking ticket on the windshield of my car. I looked around the area where I was parked to check for any possible infractions and then looked at the ticket and was surprised to find it was for parking in a two-hour zone overnight without a proper permit.

The Allman Brothers and the Flaming Lips will headline this year's All Good Festival at its new location in Columbus, Ohio, Maryland-based Walther Productions said today.

Anne Arundel County prosecutors may lose a high-profile manslaughter case without a trial because the trial date was delayed past the legal deadline without the lawyers' bringing it before a judge for approval. The lawyer for Kirk R. DeCosmo, who is accused of causing two fatal vehicular crashes in 13 years, is claiming that although he agreed to a trial date after the 180-day speedy trial limit, the pact he made with prosecutors is not valid. He has asked the Circuit Court's administrative judge to dismiss the charges.
