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.

Alibi? Yeah, we had another gang-banger, where I live, pulled the same phoney witness (his girl friend and two gang members)routine when he was being tried for murder. He was convicted when they were shown to be lying. They were also given prison sentences.

Since most people and our society base their points on emotions vs. facts of coarse we want to blame a gang banger or want to believe that someone who did this has to be a felon. The fact is the sketch is a basic composite of someone resembling the attacker. But just like anything else in california we want to jump to the conclusion this person is guilty without proving it! Just like someone else posted most witnesses see but confuse thier own perceptions of what they saw. However, in order for our society to move on we will blame whomever we want to believe. How about if the attackers were not gangbangers or a homie will it change peoples mentality. C'mon we want justice but at what price!

I'm an artist and this simple sketch of a bald Guy Ian's enough evidence. The luck is within the innocence, poor Guy is having a bad time in jail I know that Guy. To all you people instigating TALK WHAT YOU KNOW NOT WHAT YOU HEAR. What bald Guy that gang bang doesn't look like that. Where is the real proof at we need digital footage so much drama for nothing.

HE IS NOT IN THE PICS, CAUSE THEY PROBABLY JUST GAVE THE ONES WHERE HE WASN'T IN THEM. THEY IDENTIFY HIM AS THE SUSPECT AND FOR SOME ODD REASON HIS EX IS ALSO AT THE GAME THAT DAY..REALLY? THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE..

When people identified him at Dodgers stadium, they made sure they pointed out a distinctive mole near his left eye and described a distinctive neck tattoo. The parole officer pointed out the mole and when he called the LAPD, the LAPD asked about the other stuff like tattoos. The parole officer described one that matched the description from several leads, but that it had recently been covered up by new tattoos. That's a lot of evidence. It's not like Lady Gaga who paints a mole on. And I love the mother saying "he does t even like baseball"... And then he submits pics to the LAPD all geared up in Dodgers ****. Dumb. Also, the jackass who claims to have found criminal records on Bryan Stow is a lonely jackass. To be an EMT, the background check is extensive. Very extensive. They don't just overlook **** and then let you handle other people. Idiot. Here's the thing. It's a tough time being a Dodger fan as it is. I HATE the McCourts...wasting payroll money on Botox. I want it to be safe to go to games. If I am a Dodger fan, I don't give a **** If someone else is wearing a Ryan Howard jersey, or an Astros cap. Who cares? Have some beers and watch the game. White people: stop blaming the fact that he's Latino. Latino people, stop protecting a person who is likely guilty because you feel like you have to protect Latinos. The fact he is Latino has nothing to do with the crime. It's a coincidence... Don't you want to have a chill environment when you go to Dodger games? Don't you want to get rid of McCourt and get our team back on track?
