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.

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 KNOW    

You people are idiots including TMZ. To address a few of the posts on here: parole commissioners are not affiliated with the county court systems. They work for the state. This guy does have a very good criminal defense attorney. He also has an outstanding parole attorney. No this guy is not an angel, but he deserves to be proven guilty before being hung, which so many of you here would be quick to do. I really hope none of you will be ever be assigned as a juror on a criminal case. He has passed two polygraph tests. Nuff said. In a parole hearing, the commissioner only needs probable cause, not proof. Apparently the fact that the commissioner dismissed the assult charge speaks volumes about the "proof" that the LA court system DOES NOT HAVE!!

tattoos in general are an indication of criminal/bad choices in life. however, neck tattoos are about 90+ percent likely to mean the person is or has been to prison.

I was going to suggest that ELLAYALLDAY is probably only 15 or so and his Mom should take away his keyboard soon, but then I noticed the time and realized she already has as it's been a couple of hours since he typed any of his insignificant banter.

So, disregard this comment TMZ.

This is a basic case of(racial profiling.) If you were to drive down any bad neighborhood you would find hundreds of guy that look just like that suppose sketch they drew. This should be against the law. Another case of the Police Department thinking they are above the law and can charge anybody of a crime. The idiot that opened his mouth before getting his facts just wanted to get promoted. Shame on the “LAPD“ and every other Police Department that lies just so they can gain at there so called career. SHAME ON YOU!! Just because he looks like every other Hispanic does not mean you can blame him. I thought justice means facts not fiction. They were so in a hurry to pin/close this case they made the LAPD department look like the idiots that they are!!!.
