Dodgers Fan Juan Banda: I'm Not a Suspect in Beating

6/29/2011 10:52 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Juan Banda, the Dodgers fan who was videotaped in a stadium screaming match with Bryan Stow the day Stow was beaten, is telling friends police do NOT consider him a suspect in the attack.

TMZ has learned ... the LAPD went over to Banda's house early this morning -- and Juan's telling friends, investigators specifically asked him about the bleacher footage ... which shows a pissed off Banda yelling right in Stow's face during the game. Stow was rooting for the San Francisco Giants.

We're told Juan gave his side of the story to police -- that Bryan incited him, claiming he'd "rather eat his own feces than eat a Dodger dog" -- and the officers informed him that he was NOT considered a suspect in the beating.

062711_fight_small_v2_launchAs we previously reported, a man named Giovanni Ramirez has already been arrested for the attack -- and cops say he is the prime suspect.

who cares if stow pissed people off? there are always opposing fans at games. here in dc it is epidemic because so many people are from somewhere else. there is no excuse for what happened to the guy. pour a beer on him or something. all this over the name on a jersey. sad.

I never thought he was the guy that beat Stow. I simply thought he was a loser hothead that takes baseball and ballpark food way too seriously. That opinion hasn't changed.

Riiiight... of course he's not a suspect...just like Ramirez wasn't even at the game. Are Dodger fans even capable of telling the truth? Or is being a lying POS a requirement of a Dodger's fan?

it all boils down to separating the men from the chest-beating animals. you're not above the problem if you become a part of the problem. hello? all men out there? stop causing war on everything from a ballgame to a country and its policies. STOP!

Bryan Stow didn't deserve to be beaten for being stupid or a jerk. But, he put himself in a bad situation because of his own stupidity.

With the facts coming out, they'll never convict Ramirez b/c too many other suspects are at the ballpark. Additionally, Ramirez's daughter has said that her father was home with her and they have not proven he was at the game. I feel very sad for Ramirez and his fanmily, especially his daughter, if the truth is being told and they continue to have this man incarcerated on a bogus probation violation b/c they don't have the evidence for Stow's beating.

Dodger fans are disgusting trash just like the city of L.A


If Brian Stow were a cop this whole thing would've been solved a long time ago.
