Dodger owner Frank McCourt made the following statement today regarding the arrest of a suspect in the attack on Bryan Stow.
“First and foremost, our thoughts today are with Bryan Stow and his family and we hope that this announcement brings them a small measure of relief in what has been an extremely difficult time in their lives.
On behalf of the Dodger organization and our fans, I want to extend our most sincere appreciation and ‘thank you’ to Chief Charlie Beck and the men and women of the Los Angeles Police Department. From the outset, the Chief made an unwavering commitment to do everything possible to find and apprehend the suspects in the brutal and cowardly attack that took place against Mr. Stow on Opening Day.
From that point forward, I gave my word to Chief Beck that he would have the full support of everyone at the Dodgers and we have worked in close partnership with the LAPD on this matter. We pledge our continued cooperation with law enforcement authorities during the prosecution phase that will ensue.
The Dodgers are committed to providing our fans the safest sports venue in the United States – this is a commitment that we take very seriously.
Chief Beck, thank you for using every available LAPD resource to find and arrest this suspect, who will now be brought to justice.”
