The suspect was apprehended by an LAPD SWAT team at an apartment building in East Hollywood early this morning, the LA Times is reporting. An apartment manager told the paper the man taken away by police matched the description of one of the suspects whose sketches were plastered all over town (see above).

Bryan Stow, who was attacked on March 31 in the parking lot of the stadium for being a fan of the visiting team, remains in critical condition.

UPDATE -- A press conference has been scheduled for 4:00 PM PT at Dodger Stadium with LA Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and several top LAPD officers.

Thank God, this low life piece of trash is caught! He should never get out of jail. He is nothing but a coward who attacked a innocent man from behind. To Bryan and his family, God be with you. Bryan, I am praying for a miracle that God will restore your health.

I hope that suspect thought the SWAT team take down was part of his Rapture. I hope he has to wear an orange and black (Giants colors) jumpsuit in Jail.

Ever notice that they never say that they are hispanic in their suspect description? That is the new trend here in the USA. If the suspect is black or Hispanic you will never know anymore. It used to be standard when describing suspects of a crime. I guess the media thinks that if they don't tell us the nationality of minority suspects then in their minds there is no crime problem in the minority community.

I have been following this story since it happened and I have yet to hear any (major)news source give an accurate description. I guess protecting the feelings of a group of people is more important than bringing justice to violent criminals.

Q    

Bangers like this can bash peoples heads in on the street and in their hoods, but when they take it to America's Past Time, and beat an innocent family man, Paramedic---the line has been drawn--stay nasty with your own. Eliminate your own, but when you bring it to good people, at a good place---thats the limit. Guess snitches dont get stitches huh? In this case, the snitch will get rich.

These are the kind of banger thugs that trash the city of Los Angeles when the Lakers win. The fact that they decide to go to a Dodger game and do great harm to a "real baseball fan" is as dispicable as it gets. I'm sure LAPD will find the other 2 rats that are responsible (the woman driver.

Hopefully the suspects will be made to give information on the other Mexican gang members lurking around.

BLESS THE STOW FAMILY AS I HAVE BEEN PULLING FOR BRYAN EVER SINCE THIS HAPPENED.

They are saying his parole officer helped catch him. If it is true, he/she deserves the reward, even though they are not allowed to accept gratuities. That would be a shame if they keep the reward from them.

Of course Mayor V wants a presser, the hack is always in front of the camera.
