San Francisco D.A. won't pursue criminal charges against Larry Baer for altercation with wife
SAN FRANCISCO (KTVU) - San Francisco District Attorney's office confirms they will not pursue criminal charges against Giants CEO Larry Baer stemming from an altercation with his wife that was caught on video and shared widely on news reports, starting with TMZ.
In a brief statement to media on Tuesday, Alex Bastian, with the D.A.'s office wrote:
“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.”
Just yesterday, San Francisco Mayor London Breed called on Major League Baseball to discipline the CEO.
The video, taken earlier this month from Hayes Valley's popular Proxy Park, shows the couple being filmed by a bystander as they can be heard engaged in a verbal dispute. Things turn more physical with Baer seen grabbing for his wife's phone before she topples to the ground, at one point screaming, "Oh my god. Help."
It was never made clear what led up to the altercation.
