LA chief confident in Giants fan beating arrest

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.
