Man charged in attack on 'Stargate Atlantis' actor JASON MOMOA

12:06 PM, November 21, 2008

A 21-year old man who allegedly attacked and injured an actor from the television series “Stargate Atlantis” was charged today with assault with a deadly weapon.

The L.A. County district attorney’s office said Venice resident Dominic Bando  argued with actor Jason Momoa on Nov. 15 at a cafe on Franklin Avenue in Hollywood. Bando allegedly struck Momoa in the face with a pint beer glass, which shattered in the actor’s face, said Deputy Dist. Atty. Victoria Pasternack. Momoa needed 140 stitches during reconstructive surgery.

Bando is scheduled to be arraigned Dec. 10, and was released on $30,000 bail. He already was on probation for a March conviction for carrying a loaded firearm, the D.A.'s office said. Momoa, who also appeared in three seasons of “Baywatch,” plays character Ronon Dex on "Stargate Atlantis."

Update on Jason Momoa

Snerched from Joe Mallozzi's November 21st blog entry..

To the many fans out there concerned about Jason Momoa, I spoke to the big guy this afternoon and he’s doing fine. He’s on the mend, in usual high spirits, and looking forward to eventually coming down to Vancouver and kicking some alien ass. I let him know you were all worried about him and he greatly appreciates the thoughts and well-wishes.

 Edit: Found out via a fan's post on another board that Jason will be attending the Burbank, CA Stargate convention this weekend. He's set for a Sunday appearance. So, he must be doing better if he can do a con! ;)
