Dodger Assault Suspect Loses Bid for Freedom

6/3/2011 3:53 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Giovanni Ramirez -- the guy who is suspected of beating a San Francisco Giants' fan to a pulp outside Dodger Stadium -- just lost a big round in his fight to get out of prison.

0603_Giovanni-Ramirez-mugshot_bn

Ramirez was thrown back in the pokey on May 22 for allegedly violating his parole by being a felon in possession of a firearm or ammo.

Today Ramirez had a hearing before the parole commissioner, who ruled there was not only ample evidence to keep him behind bars, but that he should accept an 11-month sentence for having a gun.  Ramirez rejected the offer, so now he'll stay in prison until he gets a full hearing.

Interestingly, the commissioner had information about the Dodger Stadium attack but dismissed that part of the case.  At first blush, it looks like the commissioner may have felt there wasn't enough evidence to pin the beating on Ramirez.  But we're told authorities presented virtually no evidence about the beating of Giants' fan Bryan Stow because the firearms violation was clear.

Ramirez claims he wasn't at Dodger Stadium on the day of the attack.

Authorities are determining whether to prosecute Ramirez for the Dodger Stadium attack.

I agree what chorizo supreme has to say 100%. What is also going to happen which it's just a matter of time, that the little boy heard what was said in the car as the two thugs and classless woman talked in the car as they were driving away after the beating...that little boy is going to spill the beans to someone!!! And Why did the witnesses in the area that saw the whole thing did not try to stop it, or go to the police and say yes you have the right person or no you don't have the right person!

The LAPD pigs are pathetic. They needed someone to blame quick and Ramirez was obviously the perfect candidate. You people are judging this guy because of his appearance and past. If he didn't beat down Stow, he should not be charged for it. He passed both polygraph tests, Idiot chief Beck looks like the moron he is now, The real perpetrator is LONG gone now, what a waste of time and money. How about the incompetent LAPD focuses on REAL crimes like murder and rape cases.

Bryan Stow got dropped for opening his mouth. I doubt they have enough evidence to charge Ramirez with the beating. He's going to prison for a parole violation NOT beating down the vegetable. HAHA!

But we're told authorities presented virtually no evidence about the beating of Giants' fan Bryan Stow because the firearms violation was clear." -- this is standard procedure, he's had his parole violation/parole revocation hearing, they could have easily brought up this new case (if it's been filed), then again there was absolutely no reason to do that. Burden of proof in these types of proceedings are not very high, he could have easily gotten violated for 12 months (max for parole violations; whatever happens with a new case is completely different).

clearly, this dude is innocent. just look at that tear-drop tattoo next to his eye! that in itself says to me, "i'm innocent yo!" he's clearly saddened by all of the violence in the world! he's a non-violent latino who is clearly upset with the volatile nature of society. shi@, he's probably a priest!

Hey EllAYALLDAY, maybe if he's lucky your "cholo hero" can hire Jose Baez to defend him once he's done defending Casey Anthony.

On second thought, I doubt Cholo needs an attorney (nor can he afford one)

I now have a little faith in TMZ. I love their commentary and continuous sarcasm that fills every story. I just want them to realize that sometimes the perceived bad guy, isn't always the BAD guy!!

Thank u for renewing my faith.... Peace out of here...... CPS is coming to town and my children aren't going anywhere....................

What I find funny is when this POS goes to court he will be in a button up dress shirt covering his tatts and will grow his hair out and try to be somewhat presentable. Represent the true you Hommie. Be proud of your wasted life Holmes and be true to the game. Wear your ****eys and wife beater and represent the true you Hommie. Sport your tatts proudly displaying your wasted life Holmes. I doubt it. You're a coward and had to throw a sucker punch. Karma is a bitch son and you are just beginning to see what's ahead of you.
