LOS ANGELES (CBS) — An attorney for 31-year-old Giovanni Ramirez, the only named suspect in the brutal beating of San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow, says his client has an alibi.
Ramirez, who is being held at the Metropolitan Detention Center in downtown Los Angeles on a probation violation, has not yet been formally charged with attacking Stow.
Witnesses will be asked to identify Ramirez in a lineup Wednesday, but attorney Chip Matthews says Ramirez’s daughter will testify that her dad was with her – not at Dodger Stadium on March 31.
“She is a beautiful, smart young lady and she will happily testify about that,” Matthews said. “The believability that she brings to the table will serve him well.”
Meanwhile, an attorney for Bryan Stow’s family has filed a lawsuit against the Los Angeles Dodgers and Frank McCourt, alleging security was insufficient on Opening Day.
They are reportedly asking for $30 million to care for the 42-year-old paramedic and father who now needs around-the-clock care.
Police are still looking for another man wanted in the assault, as well as a woman who allegedly drove a getaway vehicle after the attack.
