TMZ obtained a photo of Giovanni and his daughter -- as well as the girl's statement ... detailing how she and her father spent March 31.

In the statement -- given to Giovanni's attorney Chip Matthews -- the girl says they were at an aunt and uncle's home early that day ... when her dad gave her a $100 bill to go buy a drink for him at a nearby store. She says her father was napping with his girlfriend at the time.

After the pickup, the girl says she played basketball with a cousin outside the house -- and then at 2PM left with her aunt and uncle to go get another cousin from school. She says when they returned she hung out with her father and family -- at the house -- for the rest of the day.

Matthews says, if necessary, the girl will testify on her father's behalf.

Really? He handed her a $100 bill? Seriously? WHO has that hanging around the house other than a drug-dealing gang member (or Trump, pretty much the same). I'm sure at the very least he belongs in prison for something.

IM RIGHT    

Doesn't look nothing like the drawing ... I really hope they got the right guy ...It would wrong for the guilty to get away for such a heinous crime and a Innocent person being put away for many ,many years... Just for his looks and way of life...

Do I think he was one of them? PROBABLY! Too many coincidences for him NOT to be...or know something. However, not all POS cholos are from Mexico. FYI alot of people that live in his area are from El Salvador, Guatemala or Ecuador.(Not close to Mexico at all!) Let's not be so ignorant. I'm pretty upset my self & want justice for Bryan Stow & his fam but labeling a person or race for that matter is stupid!

P.S. Kids WILL lie for their parents. Specially when they are brought up in a gang affiliated family :/

im 27 yrs old and i cant remember what i did last week but i do remember what i was doing on march 31st cuz i acutally got the day off of work (cuz the 30th was my bday)and was trying to get tickets to go to the opening game.

ok so he wasnt in pictures, but was he the one taking the pictues!!??
And you call sending your child to the store by-herself to buy you a drink while you "nap" with your current girlfriend babysitting??..So the child had the day off of school cuz of a holiday but her cousin didnt? To many things dont add up.

i feel really bad for ALL the kids...

All these comments are very interesting. There ARE a whole lot of 'coincidences' if indeed he is not the guy. BUT ALL THIS TALK ABOUT GO BACK TO MEXICO..Just because he is a cholo lowlife w/ no parenting skills doesn't mean he is from Mexico or of that nationality at all... IGNORANCE!! Best luck to Bryan Stow, his children & family <3

The day after he was arrested his mom, a male and female friend spoke to the media. The female said she went to Dodger Stadium but that he stayed at her apartment. She was not his girlfriend just a friend. So which story is it?????

One has to ask why a nine y/o was not in school. Guess they can check school records to double check to see if she was in school that day. And if not, why was she not in school.

my question is who was the kid that the witnesses saw in the car after this happened? how do we know it wasn't her? beides, who stays home w/his daughter when all his friends are going to a game? and what 'responsible' parent lets his 9 year CHILD go down to a store by themselves? hey cps, i hope you are paying attention to that admission. and just because he wasn't in any pix they turned over doesn't mean there aren't 30 other pix that have him in it.
