Suspect in Dodger Stadium MLB Opening Day Beating of SF Giant Fan Bryan Stow is in Custody & Arrested
According to the LA Times, one of the two suspects has been arrested and taken into custody in the Major League Baseball Opening Day beating at LA Dodger Stadium of San Fransisco Giants fan Bryan Stow. The brutal beating left Stow with brain damage and until just last week in a medically induced coma. The suspect was apprehended by Los Angeles SWAT at an apartment building in East Hollywood. According to an apartment manager, one of those lead away by SWAT matched the description of one of the two suspects below.

At about 7 a.m., the Los Angeles Police Department SWAT team descended on an East Hollywood apartment building with a warrant in hand. According to apartment building manager Maritza Camacho, police, using loudspeakers and with guns drawn, called out to the occupants of Apartment 25. Inside was one of the men police suspect in the March 31 beating that left Stow with brain damage.
As residents of the three-story building stood watching from balconies, police removed, one by one, the people who were inside the apartment, according to Camacho. Among them was a man with a bald head and tattoos on his neck and arms, she said, a description that appeared to match the vague sketches released by police of one of the two suspects.
Last week, doctors reported that Stow is able to open his eyes but remains in critical condition after being transferred to San Francisco General Hospital.
This is bizarre, the police did not release the name of the alleged beating suspect. Since when did police not release the name of those arrested? Do they protect the arrested now in CA?
UPDATE I: According to TMZ, there is a press conference has been scheduled for 4:00 PM PT at Dodger Stadium with LA Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and several top LAPD officers.
UPDATE II: The Los Angeles police chief says a tip from a parole officer led to the arrest. Even at this afternoon’s presser, police still have not released the name of the alleged suspect. Why would that be?
The Los Angeles police chief says a tip from a parole officer led to the arrest of one of the suspects in the attack on a San Francisco Giants fan outside Dodger Stadium after the rival teams’ season opener.
At an afternoon news conference at the stadium, Chief Charlie Beck said the man detained early Sunday is believed to be the “main aggressor” in the March 31 beating that left Bryan Stow with brain damage.
