Footage Released of Padres’ Tommy Pham’s Stabbing Incident, Bloody Aftermath (VIDEO)
Tommy Pham was left with a foot-long slash on his back after being stabbed outside a Midway District strip club over the weekend, , the San Diego Police Department said on Tuesday.
The San Diego Padres outfielder was “expected to make a full recovery” from the stab wound received after being attacked by a group of men outside Pacers Showgirls International.
TMZ Sports has since gotten hold of footage that night that shows the bloody aftermath.
“Pham is dressed in a white shirt and red sweatpants.
The footage does not show the moment Pham is stabbed, but does show the aftermath — which includes a fistfight involving other people … while Pham stands nearby in a blood-soaked shirt.
You can see in the clip, the stab wound runs from hip to hip … and he is bleeding profusely.”
Pham was transported to UC San Diego Health, where he received stitches to close the wound.
He issued a statement later saying:
“I’d like to thank the incredible medical staff at UC San Diego Health for taking such great care of me last night. I truly appreciate the hard work of the SDPD as well as they continue their search for the suspects. While it was a very traumatic and eye-opening experience for me, I’m on the road to recovery and I know I’ll be back to my offseason training routine in no time.”
