Lawyers for suspect in fan’s beating to seek video

Lawyers for a man whom police say led the attack on a San

Francisco Giants fan outside Dodger Stadium hope to secure

videotape footage they believe could help clear their client.

Attorney Jose Romero, who is part of Giovanni Ramirez’s defense

team, said he would file a motion Monday asking a judge to instruct

detectives to collect surveillance footage from a service station

and other businesses in an area west of Dodger Stadium.

Romero says footage taken on the day of the March 31 attack on

Bryan Stow would show that Ramirez had a good covering of hair on

his head.

This could be significant because witnesses say one assailant

had a shaved head.

Ramirez has not been charged, but remains in custody on a parole

hold.
