A suspect in the beating of San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow at Dodger Stadium was apprehended by the Los Angeles Police Department, as a Los Angeles Police Department SWAT team raided an East Hollywood apartment early this morning.
The suspect, sporting a bald head and tattoos on his neck and arms, was taken into custody; he didn’t put up a fight in the incident.
Stow, a Giants fan from Santa Clara, was at Dodger Stadium for the season opener and was jumped by two assailants after the Dodgers’ win over the Giants. He was placed in a medically induced coma by doctors to allow swelling on the brain to subside. After several weeks in the coma he was allowed to regain consciousness, but his actions have been minimal: some eye and limb movement. The incident forced the Dodgers to reevaluate ballpark safey, with the LAPD dramatically increasing its presence at games.
