Giovanni Ramirez was arrested Sunday for allegedly beating Giants' fan Bryan Stow so badly on opening day, he suffered brain damage.

Ramirez' lawyer, Chip Matthews, tells TMZ ... he has three witnesses who will testify that Ramirez was not even at the game that day but rather at his L.A. apartment. 

Ramirez -- a gang member with felony convictions -- was busted after his parole officer met with him and noticed a strong resemblance to the sketches of the suspect.

He was ID'd in lineups by three witnesses. Let's see how well the alibi holds up.

I saw his mug shot that was briefly on KTLA yesterday and he doesn't look so tough. He looks like an ignorant uneducated dumbass that will be someone's bitch when he goes to prison.

it's been proven that most of the time eye witness accounts are terribly flawed. Simply arresting someone because they resemble a very vague and basic description isn't enough. I feel for the buy who got beaten up and IF this is the guy then glad he's been found and will be punished but there better be more than 'he resembles the bald Hispanic with a goatee' reason.

Supposedly he has a tattoo on his neck that was seen by witnesses. I think one of the things that brought attention to him is the fact that he's allegedly recently obtained more neck tattoos that cover up the original.

Seems Chief Beck already labeled the suspect "the vicious thug responsible of the brutal attack". They already condemned this guy, with only witness I.D.s. Why didn't he shave, or move? Why does he have an alibi? Why did Beck basically ruin the case if he WAS found guilty by insinuating he's guilty? 6,000 man hours, 20 detectives and Beck's insinuations? Ruined this case, this man is going home free. All the racism, bad lime light and referring to him as a "vicious thug responsible for the brutal attack" isn't going to help. Not to mention the "Huff" has information showing Mr.Stow has a criminal record. Drunk driving, spousal abuse and narcotics possession. Amazing case to be at to say the least!

Just another piece of sh*t gangbanger. The chick who is his alibi is probably the bi*ch who drove the getaway car.
