Didn't your mother ever tell you to be careful who you hang out with? Denise Piccione, 26, who is believed to be the girlfriend of Giovanni Ramirez, was arrested in Las Vegas, reports KTLA. Piccione plead not guilty to drugs and weapons charges. Following the arrest of Ramirez in May for the near-fatal beating of Bryan Stow in the parking lot of Dodger stadium after a game, Piccione was listed as a person of interest. She hasn't been linked to the attack.

Ramirez is currently serving time for a parole violation, in relation to a weapon found in his apartment after he was arrested on suspicion of participating in the beating. No formal charges have been pressed against him in connection to Bryan Stow, and he maintains his innocence.
