Accused Dodger Stadium Attacker's Photo Alibi

5/25/2011 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The man accused of brutally beating a San Francisco Giants fan outside Dodger Stadium in March has photos which he says prove he was not even there the day of the attack.

Giovanni Ramirez has given his lawyer pictures of a group of people who went to see the game on March 31.  The photos show Ramirez' ex-girlfriend and other friends at the park next to the stadium, but he is nowhere to be seen.  Ramirez' point -- if he was there, the pictures would prove it. 

Ramirez claims he was babysitting at his ex-girlfriend's apartment when the attack on Bryan Stow occurred.

We asked Ramirez' lawyer, Chip Matthews, why his client would hang with his ex-girlfriend.  Matthews says they remained close after the break-up.

Ramirez has not been charged and police will put him in a lineup today.

What kind of proof/logic is that???? What if the guy was in 25 other pictures...but he wasn't in these 3? Absence of someone in 3 photos doesn't prove anything. Come on...how often does someone appear in every picture taken at every event?

I really hope they catch the guy but in fairness I don't trust The Police at all. My experience with Police has always been to stay as far away from them as possible. They lie, cheat, make up false reports and commit crimes just like criminals and i'm not alone in my thoughts. Again, i really hope this is the guy and he gets what he deserves but I still do not trust the Police at all.

i just looked at picture with glasses with reflection with zoom its a guy taking the picture so it might be him it looks like hes wearing a red shirt and if his probation officer turned him in he must have a record for fighting /domestic violence ,so probation officer must of thought tatoo matched his description and if this is the guy this s*** deserves to die beating a dad in front of son or daughter is not good on the kids and did someone say hewas beat with a weapon well maybe they have fingerprints on it and hes busted and do they have any witness to this brutal beating they will be there to indentify him in a lineup

How is NOT being in photo's an alibi? Being IN a photo, at a location other than where you're accused of doing something bad is an alibi. Anyone can find plenty of photo's that they are not in, but it certainly doesn't prove they weren't there.

Yeah right, they just randomly pick this guy out. He happens to be a Dodger fan and He stays home to watch the kids while the "ex" goes to the game. uh huh. They obviously have more evidence against the guy than to just randomly pick someone and what are the odds that the guy they pick just happens to have all his friends there. Good luck on the baby sitting story dude.

What a horrible defense! I'm not in most of the pictures on my camera either...because I'm taking the pictures!

He was probably the one taking the pictures...DUH!

He may well be telling the truth, but his absence from the pictures doesn't prove a thing. Maybe he was taking them. Or maybe he just wasn't in *these* particular shots. Silly.

Doesn't prove a thing. Anyway, the truth will come out soon enough. Is his ex-girlfriend the get away driver? Oh, snap!

I just noticed there is a reflection of 2 people in the sunglasses the chick is wearing. Wouldn't it be hilarious if it turned out to be the suspect snapping the photos? Oops!
