Lawyers for suspect to seek video

LOS ANGELES -- Lawyers for a man whom police say led the attack on a San Francisco Giants fan outside Dodger Stadium hope to secure videotape footage they believe could help clear their client.

Attorney Jose Romero, who is part of Giovanni Ramirez's defense team, said he would file a motion Monday asking a judge to instruct detectives to collect surveillance footage from a service station and other businesses in an area west of Dodger Stadium.

Romero says footage taken on the day of the March 31 attack on Bryan Stow would show that Ramirez had a good covering of hair on his head.

This could be significant because witnesses say one assailant had a shaved head.

Ramirez has not been charged, but remains in custody on a parole hold.
