A new video released today shows that Bryan Stow, the beaten Giants fan who remains in a coma, arguing with a Dodgers fan during the March 31 game where he was attacked.

The video was released by TMZ, and shows Stow sitting at his seat at the opener game, confronting a man wearing a Dodgers "Banda 23" jersey. The man doesn't resemble Giovanni Ramirez, who was arrested on suspicion of beating Stow in the parking lot after the game. Ramirez, 31, has not yet been charged with the assault, yet police insist he is the primary aggressor.

Los Angeles police told reporters that they have not reviewed the video footage closely enough to say how it could effect the case, if at all.

Stow has been in a coma since the March 31 beating, where he was attacked as he left the evening game. Police arrested Ramirez, who claims he was babysitting his 10-year-old daughter that night. His lawyers say he has enough people to serve as his alibi.

Although he has not been charged with the crime, Ramirez remains in jail for a parole violation. Police are still looking for another male suspect and a woman who drove the getaway car after the beating.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
