Suspect in Bryan Stow beating has video proof of alibi, attorney says

The only suspect in the vicious Bryan Stow beating case may have an air-tight alibi other than his 9-year-old daughter — surveillance video at a Hollywood motel, his attorney said.

ABC News reported that the lawyer for Giovanni Ramirez, 31, will file a motion requesting video from the motel that he says will prove his client was not at Dodger Stadium when Stow was attacked.

Ramirez has not been charged in the Stow case but is in custody on a parole hold.

Ramirez’ daughter, whom the suspect's lawyer provided as an alibi, said during a press conference last week that her dad is innocent.

“I think it’s not my dad, and I pretty much know it’s not him,” the fourth-grader said. “And other people are saying that it is him, so that part makes me mad. But then I’m also sad because he’s in jail right now.”

Stow remains in critical condition at San Francisco General Hospital.

Ramirez is one of two suspects in the attack outside Dodger Stadium March 31. A second suspect has not been identified.

Ramirez remained a suspect after police say they were satisfied by a photo lineup. He was arrested after a parole officer said Ramirez resembled one of two widely publicized suspect police sketches.
