Cops: Drunk Giants Pitcher Groped Woman on Gurney
Las Vegas police have charged San Francisco Giants pitcher Chad Gaudin with lewdness for groping and touching a woman's breast while she was on a gurney.
According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, "Gaudin, 30, was arrested by Las Vegas police on Jan. 27, although the arrest was not publicized." The Clark County District Attorney’s office subsequently charged Gaudin with "open and gross lewdness, a gross misdemeanor, earlier this month."
According to police reports, "Gaudin was drunk about 4:30 a.m. when he approached a 23-year-old woman on a gurney at Desert Springs Hospital and reportedly told her that she was "gorgeous" and "touched her face and breast."
After a "paramedic also saw the incident and told Gaudin to stay away from the woman," Gaudin refused and was "still yelling and using profanity when police arrived," according to the arresting officer.
“I asked Gaudin several times how he ended up at the hospital and each time he told me that he didn’t know,” the officer wrote, according to the Journal. “Gaudin appeared to be intoxicated. He had slurred speech, bloodshot eyes, trouble standing still, obeying commands, an odor of alcoholic beverages and couldn’t repeat his house number, where he lives, the same way twice in a row.”
