Authorities are using a parole hold to keep Giovanni Ramirez in custody, without criminal charges, while the police investigation continues into the beating of Giants fan Bryan Stow at Dodger Stadium. A lineup is being arranged for Wednesday afternoon, KFI's Eric Leonard reports. The suspect's side says he wasn't at the Dodger game on opening day, but was home babysitting. Also this from Leonard:
LAPD and other law enforcement sources told KFI NEWS Tuesday detectives working the Stow case had wanted to keep Ramirez's arrest Sunday morning, "as quiet as possible," so the detectives would have time to look into his activities and search his apartments and cars without the intense publicity that's now surrounding the case.
The L.A. Times and KCBS/KCAL-TV were tipped to the arrest operation early Sunday morning by a high-ranking member of the LAPD, the sources said.
