The man is Juan Banda, seen here posing with former Dodgers first baseman Eric Karros outside Dodger Stadium.  We don't know when the photo was taken.

We're told after TMZ posted the video Monday morning -- showing Banda taunting beating victim Bryan Stow -- people from Banda's office told him to call the LAPD.
