They just seem like a wonderful couple, don’t they? The girlfriend of Giovanni Lopez, the man police suspect is responsible for beating Giants fan Bryan Stow in the parking lot of Dodgers Stadium on opening day in March, has been arrested in Las Vegas for possession and trafficking of methamphetamine and possessing a dangerous weapon.

You crazy kids with your drugs and your deadly weapons. Settle down and get married already!

Denise Piccione, 26, is believed to be the girlfriend of Giovanni Ramirez, who is the prime suspect in Stow’s beating.

L.A.P.D. officials called Piccione a person of interest after Ramirez was arrested in May and said they wanted to talk to her about the case. Ramirez has not been officially charged with the attack, but was sentenced to 10 months for a parole violation following his arrest. A gun was found inside his apartment when officers took him into custody.

So this is what’s known on the TV cop shows as “leverage.” Now they can lean on the girlfriend to give up dirt on Ramirez, or “You’re going to prison for a very long time, sweetheart. (slams folder onto table). A VERY long time!”

Stow’s condition was upgraded from critical to serious on June 22.

    If I remember correctly, didn’t Ms. Piccione say that Lopez was with her that night that Stow was beaten up?

    And this “has been arrested in Las Vegas for possession and trafficking of methamphetamine and possessing a dangerous weapon.” When will they throw her in the slammer forever? Looks like Ramirez is gonna have to find a new girlfriend. (in jail).
