Man Wrongly Accused In Giants Fan Beating Speaks

LOS ANGELES (CBS/AP) — A man who was wrongly arrested in the near-death beating of a Giants fan outside of Dodger Stadium says he deserves an apology from Los Angeles police.

Giovanni Ramirez spoke publicly for the first time at a news conference Thursday since his release from a San Diego prison on Saturday.

Ramirez says his heart goes out to the family of Bryan Stow and wishes them the best as Stow continues to recover. The paramedic from Santa Cruz suffered severe brain damage after he was attacked in the stadium parking lot on opening day last spring.

In late July, two other men were arrested in connection with the beating and Ramirez was exonerated, but remained incarcerated for a parole violation.

Ramirez was never charged with the Stow beating.

  • Linda

    Uh no. Clearly he is gang affiliated with his neck tattoos and the teardrop, which supposedly signifys that you’ve killed someone?

    • Bad Idea

      That use to be true Linda, but now it could mean he just beat someone up.
