Giants CEO Larry Baer is deep crap after video surfaced showing him grabbing and pulling his wife out of a chair and causing her to fall to the ground in a San Francisco plaza on Friday morning, an incident captured on video by a witness and under investigation by city police.
The video shows Baer stepping over his wife, Pam, as she sits in a chair as she screams , “Oh, my God, no, help!” as Baer appears to try to grab a phone out of her right hand.
She hung on to that phone, but her chair tipped over as she fell down to the ground on her back.
Larry Baer told The Chronicle in an interview, “My wife and I had an unfortunate public argument related to a family member and she had an injured foot and she fell off her chair in the course of the argument. The matter is resolved. It was a squabble over a cell phone. Obviously, it’s embarrassing.”
Later Friday, the pair issued a joint statement through the Giants: “Regrettably, today we had a heated argument in public over a family matter. We are deeply embarrassed by the situation and have resolved the issue.”
