Two more suspects were reportedly arrested in connection with the brutal beating of Bryan Stow at Dodger Stadium on Opening Day and the initial suspect, Giovanni Ramirez, will reportedly be exonerated as a result. Ramirez has been held since late May, when police took him in custody in connection with Stow's beating. He's been incarcerated ever since after police discovered a gun in his residence, violating the terms of his parole. And though the two suspects haven't been named yet, more information about how the investigation has evolved is beginning to trickle out.
While the defense didn't outright say it unearthed evidence that suggested Ramirez was innocent, they did hint at doing their own digging that may have led to Thursday's arrests.
"The police played hide and seek so we did our own digging," Romero said. "This is our golden nugget. He's been innocent from the beginning."
Another Ramirez attorney, Anthony Brooklier, said the arrest was a mistake made in "good faith."
Ramirez, however, may be able to counter with a lawsuit, should his name be cleared as a result of the latest arrests. After being painted as a suspect, with police all but assuring the public they got their man, it's possible Ramirez could bring about a civil case because of the false arrest, despite his attorneys' statements about it being an honest mistake in good faith.
