(Source) San Francisco Giants pitcher Chad Gaudin has been charged with lewdness after police say he touched the breast of a woman on a gurney at a Las Vegas hospital earlier this year. Gaudin, 30, was arrested by Las Vegas police on Jan. 27, although the arrest was not publicized. The Clark County District Attorney’s office charged Gaudin with open and gross lewdness, a gross misdemeanor, earlier this month. According to police, Gaudin was drunk about 4:30 a.m. when he approached a 23-year-old woman on a gurney at Desert Springs Hospital, three miles east of the Las Vegas Strip.
The woman told police she was lying on a gurney in the emergency room lobby when Gaudin appeared, told her “she was gorgeous” and touched her face and breast, she said. A witness heard Gaudin say, “I will take care of you, don’t worry about them,” to the woman and then saw him touch her face, leg and breast, according to a police report. A paramedic also saw the incident and told Gaudin to stay away from the woman, but Gaudin refused. Hospital security held Gaudin down until police arrived. “Gaudin was still yelling and using profanity,” when police arrived, the arresting officer wrote in his report. “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. “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.”
Police did not say why the victim was hospitalized, citing privacy laws.
Two things here.
1. This is Chad Gaudin we’re talking about, kind of a big deal. Like has this chick been living under a rock or something? Does she not follow mediocre middle relievers? Way to be out of touch hun.
2. I’m not saying Chad Gaudin should have groped this girl’s tits but he did preface it with, “you look gorgeous”. I mean that’s a pretty big compliment no? I guess the point is if Rebecca Lobo or Mia Hamm came up to me and said I looked gorgeous and then cupped my balls I wouldn’t be all that upset. Just sort of roll with the punches type of deal. Tell your friends THE Chad Gaudin molested you in a hospital. That’s a story everyone wants to hear.
