Suspect in Bryan Stow beating faces a hearing today

An image of Dodger Stadium beating victim Bryan Stow (C) is shown on the scoreboard before a MLB National League baseball game between San Francisco Giants and St. Louis Cardinals in San Francisco, California, April 8, 2011. Stow who drove more than 300 miles from Santa Cruz to Los Angeles to watch his beloved Giants play the Dodgers on Opening Day last week, was attacked and beaten in the parking lot by two men after the game. The 42-year-old paramedic and father of two, who was apparently assaulted because he wore Giants garb, remains in a coma and listed in critical condition at a local hospital. His assailants, who were dressed in Dodgers gear, have not been caught despite a $150,000 reward. REUTERS/Beck Diefenbach (UNITED STATES - Tags: CIVIL UNREST SPORT BASEBALL)

Giovanni Ramirez, a suspect in the Bryan Stow beating at Dodger Stadium, still has not been charged in that case. And today he faces a hearing in which he could go free if it’s not found that he has violated his parole. If that happens he could be re-arrested again with specific connection to the Stow case, but then the police would face a short time period in which they’d either have to charge him or re-release him.

Complicating this: Ramirez’s attorney has said that 11 family members, neighbors and friends have provided an alibi for him, saying he was at an aunt’s house at the time of the attack.

So, for as happy as everyone was at the time of the arrest, this aint’ over yet folks.
