Two men jailed in the brutal beatdown of a man at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara have criminal records in Tulare County.
Brothers Dario Rebollero, 34, and Amador Rebollero, 27, both of Traver in northern Tulare County, were arrested at the stadium Sunday by Santa Clara police on suspicion of felony assault.
Police and eyewitnesses say that before the start of Sunday’s San Francisco 49ers football game, the two attacked two men in a restroom in a fracas that reportedly began as a disagreement over who was next in line to use an open stall.
The fight was caught on a cellphone video and posted to YouTube (which soon took it down, saying it violated its policy “on shocking and disgusting content”). The video shows a man being knocked to the ground, and a second man being punched repeatedly as he lay on the ground.
