LOS ANGELES (KTLA) -- Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck says he is confident his department has arrested the right man in the beating of Giants fan Bryan Stow.

Chief Beck held a news conference Thursday, but released few details of the results of a police lineup held Wednesday evening in the case.

31-year-old Giovanni Ramirez was arrested Sunday, but has not yet been formally charged in the March 31 attack at Dodger Stadium that left Bryan Stow in a coma for over 7 weeks.

Chief Beck told reporters "the lineup went well", but refused to release any other details. He also stressed that Ramirez is the "prime suspect" and they are confident in their case against him.

"Giovanni Ramirez is and was and has been our primary suspect on the Stow beating. We continue down that road in our preparation of presenting a case to the District Attorney in the near future," Beck said.

Ramirez is currently in custody on a parole hold.

If they find his skin flakes on the victim’s body, or the rubber from his shoes, he’s toast!

And his 10-year old daughter has a lawyer (!!!) who is most likely a gang member himself.

Translation: The lineup failed.

In the photo the guy has a teardrop tatoo below his eye.

That is jailhouse symbolism for his claiming to have done a very serious crime. Possibly murder.

Now the goal is to sweat this mook to give up the other two. I’d give the odds at roughly 50-50

I wonder if we have to wait until trial to learn the results. The defense team was mouthing off to media with an alibi even BEFORE the line-up took place.

Previously, a witness had ID’d Ramirez in a PHOTO lineup. The photo is the one we have seen side by side with the police sketch and is from his parole file. I note identical eyebrows, and the teardrop tattoo: http://echopark.patch.com/articles/lapd-still-wont-release-new-giovanni-ramirez-mugshot

The most recent mugshot, post-arrest, has not been published yet.
