Two Arrested In Beating Of Bryan Stow; Giovanni Ramirez Exonerated, According To Report

The case of the Dodger Stadium beating that left Bryan Stow hospitalized in very serious condition took another turn on Thursday, when the Los Angeles Times reported two suspects were arrested and Giovanni Ramirez, the initial suspect in the case, was exonerated. Ramirez was taken into custody in connection with Stow's beating in May, but police have struggled to build a case since.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the attorney for Ramirez had yet to hear any official word on the case, but he has maintained his client was innocent:

"I haven’t heard anything [about the new arrests] yet," said Anthony Brooklier. "But if it’s true I’m happy for my client. I always believed he was factually innocent. There was a lot of pressure on LAPD. I believe that they were operating in good faith and made a good faith mistake."]

There's been no word from the Los Angeles Police Department about the case or any arrests on Thursday.

Stow was badly beaten at an opening day matchup between the San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers at Dodgers Stadium. The attack left him in a coma, and he remains in hospital nearly four months after the attack.
