Two new suspects arrested in the Bryan Stow beating case: Anonymous sources within Los Angeles law enforcement have told reporters two new people have been arrested for the brutal assault of the San Francisco Giants fan in March. The Los Angeles Police Department has not confirmed the arrests, but the sources went further to say the first suspect, Giovanni Ramirez, 31, could be exonerated of the crime imminently. Ramirez has been held in police custody without charges for several weeks. His defense team has been adamant Ramirez was not present at the crime scene -- Dodgers Stadium on the night of the home opener against the Giants. Meanwhile, Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck called the Ramirez arrest a "significant break that will lead to a successful prosecution." The case drew criticism of lax security at Dodgers stadium. Stow remains hospitalized in serious condition. We'll get the latest from KPCC's Frank Stoltze and a defense attorney for Ramirez.
