Mayor Villar and LAPD Chief Beck to hold 4PM Presser on arrests in Bryan Stow Beating ** Update: KFI reporting possible Boyle Heights connection in case

"Suspect on left side is in custody, name will be release after booking this evening."
** Sunday Evening Update: The Los Angeles Times is reporting that apprehended suspect Giovanni Ramirez is an documented member of the "Varrio Nuevo Estrada (VNE) Street Gang" which is centered in the Boyle Heights Estrada Courts Housing Project. 
Mayor Antonio Villar, LAPD Charlie Beck, Dodgers officials and members of the press will converge on Dodger Stadium for a 4:00 PM press conference to give more details on this morning's arrests in connection to the Bryan Stow Beating 

Within the last hour, speculation on the suspects is rampant in regards to parole status and gang affiliation.

We will update as the facts are separated from speculation.

Post Presser Update: KFI's Eric Leonard reports this exclusive."About two weeks after the incident detectives caught what they hoped was the first big break in the case -- when someone working at a dry cleaner in Boyle Heights reported someone had dropped-off a bloody Dodgers jersey for cleaning.

LAPD sources told KFI NEWS the jersey was immediately tested for the presence of DNA evidence.

It's not clear if that effort played a role in this morning's arrest.

The guy says he is innocent. And, that is true until proven guilty. Everyone needs to hold off until the jury proves the guy did it.

That being said, the photo is a perfect likeness of the guy. But only the jury gets to decide for sure.
