Former Baywatch hunk JASON MOMOA is recovering after a savage brawl left him with a slashed face.
The actor, who played Jason Ioane in 42 episodes of the surf series between 1999 and 2002, reportedly needed 140 stitches and reconstructive surgery after Dominic Bando allegedly attacked him with a glass in a West Hollywood bar last week (ends14Nov08).
Police officials tell TMZ.com, the fight started following a "verbal altercation" between the two men.
Bando, who was already on probation after he was convicted of gun charges in March (08), faces up to seven years in jail.
He will be arraigned on 10 December (08).
