According to TMZ Sports, San Francisco Giants CEO Larry Baer will not be charged with a crime following the incident with his wife that made national news. The authorities ruled that his actions were not a crime.
Following the incident with his wife in a San Francisco park, Baer took a leave of absence.
“After a careful review of the relevant evidence, including multiple videos, statements from several witnesses and the parties themselves, the evidence does not support filing criminal charges,” the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office said to TMZ.
During the incident in question, Baer attempted to get a phone out of his wife’s hands. She was sitting down and he was over her, as they tangled for the phone.
As he was trying to get the phone from her hands, his wife Pam fell out of the chair and onto the ground. She cried for help as she screamed “Oh my god. Help!” as he was getting the phone.
TMZ obtained the video that went viral involving the altercation between Baer and his wife Pam. Despite the spat, she has supported her husband.
Pam said that this was a non-issue. She also insisted that the two were happily married.
“I am truly sorry for the pain that I have brought to my wife, children, and to the organization,” Baer said in a previous statement after taking a leave of absence. “It is not reflective of the kind of a person that I aspire to be, but it happened and I will do whatever it takes to make sure that I never behave in such an inappropriate manner again.”
