Brian Giles Sued For Domestic Abuse

Postby StlSluggers » Thu Dec 18, 2008 6:31 pm

MSNBC.com wrote:A videotape released this week shows San Diego Padres outfielder Brian Giles allegedly assaulting his then-girlfriend in an Arizona bar, NBC San Diego (http://www.nbcsandiego.com) reported.
...
Several witnesses told police that they watched Giles slap the woman in the head, knocking her to the ground, the TV station reported. In the surveillance video, one of the witnesses can be seen mimicking a slap to another bar patron.

Olvera claims Giles beat her while she was pregnant with his baby in 2002. Olvera later miscarried. Goldstein said Olvera doesn't blame Giles for that miscarriage, but he said she does blame Giles for another miscarriage. He said that earlier this year, she became pregnant again with Giles' baby. According to Goldstein, Olvera lost the baby after Giles allegedly threw her down a hallway.

Roid rage? At least then he has an excuse. Not a good one but still an excuse. It would also explain why he sucks so bad right now.

Maybe he just lives by the credo: Beat your wife/girlfriend every day. Because if you don't know why, she does. !+)

He had the 9th best OPS+ in the NL, so I don't think he sucks.
Unless you mean he sucks as a boyfriend
