LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles police Chief Charlie Beck says he’s confident the right person has been arrested in the beating of a San Francisco Giants fan at Dodger Stadium on opening day.
No charges have been filed yet against 31-year-old Giovanni Ramirez, who was taken into custody last weekend.
But Beck told a news conference Thursday that his investigators exceeded standards for making an arrest.
The chief says police won’t present a case to the district attorney until investigators have what he terms “an abundance of evidence.”
Ramirez remains in custody on a parole hold. His attorneys deny he was at the game.
Victim Bryan Stow was beaten on March 31 and remains in critical condition.
