LOS ANGELES - The main suspect in the brutal beating of a San Francisco Giants fan outside Dodger Stadium has been ordered held in custody for 10 months on a parole violation.

The state Department of Corrections says a parole revocation hearing for 31-year-old Giovanni Ramirez concluded Monday with a finding that there was cause to believe the convicted felon had violated parole by having access to a weapon. That charge was amended from an initial allegation of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

The decision means Ramirez will remain in custody while police investigate him in the March 31 beating of Bryan Stow. Police have expressed confidence in Ramirez's May 22 arrest but he has not been charged with the attack.

Ramirez's attorney plans to appeal.
