Earlier today, Padres outfielder Brian Giles was sued by a former girlfriend, over alleged constant physical abuse throughout their long relationship. One of those incidents was apparently captured on surveillance footage from an Arizona bar in 2006.
The suit, filed in San Diego Superior Court, states the abuse began in 2002. It accuses Giles of “hitting and slapping plaintiff in the face; pushing plaintiff; shaking plaintiff; kicking plaintiff; hitting plaintiff in the chest; knocking plaintiff to the floor, battering plaintiff twice when she was pregnant with the parties' child, causing plaintiff to suffer a miscarriage.”
She's suing for close to $10 million. GasLampBall snagged the footage from NBC San Diego news. Neither the Padres or Giles is commenting on the incident at this time.
