BAKERSFIELD - The victim of the attack at an ice rink by Alan Tandy intends to file a lawsuit against the Bakersfield City Manager, his lawyer said.
Attorney Daniel Rodriguez told 23ABC the victim, Jonathan Hudson, has sought his legal counsel.
Video released Wednesday appears to show Tandy, a player in a hockey league, and others getting into a slow scuffle at the Ice Center Sunday.
Tandy appears to push a hockey stick in the direction of an opposing player and then fall to the ice.
Hudson told 23ABC News he suffered a "closed head injury" after Tandy hit him with hockey stick.
Tandy's attorney, H.A. Sala, told 23ABC that Tandy was acting honorably and trying to save a teammate from being seriously injured.
Tandy said in an email that Sala is his personal attorney and is paid by Tandy, not the city.
Sala said Tandy was interviewed by District Attorney investigators Thursday morning.
An incident like this would normally be investigated by the Bakersfield Police Department. The City Attorney Ginny Gennaro and Police Chief Greg Williamson handed the case to the Kern County District Attorney's office due to conflict of interest.
Tandy is in the middle of his performance review by the Bakersfield City Council.
