LAS VEGAS (AP) - A San Francisco Giants pitcher has been charged with lewdness after police say he touched a woman's breast at a Las Vegas hospital earlier this year.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/11CURlh ) 30-year-old Chad Gaudin (GOH'-din) was arrested Jan. 27, although the case didn't attract attention at the time.
Police say Gaudin was drunk when he approached a 23-year-old woman on a gurney at Desert Springs Hospital, told her she was gorgeous and touched her face and breast.
The newspaper reports a paramedic told Gaudin to leave the woman alone, but he refused, and security staff held him down until police arrived.
Gaudin has pitched as a starter and in relief. He's 2-1 this year with a 2.44 ERA.
Team officials didn't immediately return a call seeing comment Wednesday.
