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.

This is too obvious. He could've been holding the camera.

Even if he is not the suspect in the beating, he was picked up on a porole violation. That's when the porole officer seen the guy and called the police saying it was one suspect they where looking for.

did they send you photos Harvey or did they send you the camera's memory card? Even the kids Ramirez was babysitting could crop a photo. Why would they send you the photos he is in when he is trying to establish a alibi?

Like someone else said, this guy would certainly tell his girlfriend and buddies to go to the game without him.

Maybe he's not in the park pictures because at the time he was in the stadium parking lot kicking an unconscious man in the head.

A lot of you seem to have already come to the conclussion he's guilty based on no evidence. The sketch is very vague so its not like its 100% certain its this guy.

Its not the picture thats important, if they have the camera with the image still on it you can find out the date & time through the memory and see when that picture was taken.

But 85% of you that voted that his alibi doesn't hold water probably voted so because you want him to be the guy. There seems to be more evidence pointing to him not being the guy then there is of him being the guy at this point. Even if there are people that saw it happened and identify him as the guy that isn't enough because its their word against his family's word and how can you trust the people at the game any more than you would his family?

I do hope they find and punish the correct person and if this is him i hope he gets what he deserves but i'm not going to jump to conclussions based on a very vague police sketch.

JUST BECAUSE HE WASN'T IN ANY OF THE PICTURES, DOESN'T MEAN HE WASN'T THERE. 1) HE COULD HAVE BEEN TAKING THE PICTURES 2) IF HE IS A PAROLEE; MAYBE HE INSISTED ON NOT BEING IN ANY OF THE PICTURES (FOR WHATEVER REASON) 3) HE COULD HAVE SIMPLY NOT GIVEN HIS ATTORNEY ALL OF THE PICTURES FROM THAT DAY!

HE COULD HAVE EASILY COACHED HIS DAUGHTER IN TO SAYING THAT HE WAS BABYSITTING HER.

I heard a family was snapping photo's outside of Ron Goldman's house and O.J. wasn't in them. I guess he's innocent.

not to sound racist but i'm sure in the LA area you can find a lot of guys who look like the police sketch. So far they don't seem to have any solid evidence to convict him. If they have him on camera somewhere in the stadium or some other type of hard evidence then the guy is screwed but if all they have to go on is people that were there saying it is him and a vague police sketch then thats probably not enough to convict.

zoom in on the picture of the chick wearing the sunglasses. The person taking the picture in the reflection off her glasses sure does look a lot like the suspect.
