MLB Pitcher Chad Gaudin Charged With Lewdness for Allegedly Groping a Woman at a Las Vegas Hospital

MLB Pitcher Chad Gaudin Charged With Lewdness for Allegedly Groping a Woman at a Las Vegas HospitalDaniel Shirey/USA Today Sports

This story sounds like a scene straight out of Hangover 4.

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, San Francisco Giants pitcher Chad Gaudin was arrested one morning back in January after he allegedly walked into the Desert Springs Hospital—which is a few miles away from the Las Vegas Strip—at 4:30 a.m. and groped a woman who was on a gurney. Gourdin allegedly walked up to the woman, told her that she was "gorgeous," and touched both her face and her breast. He then told her, "I will take care of you, don't worry about them," and touched her face, her leg, and her breast. The hospital staff attempted to get him to stop, but the only way to do it was to eventually pin him to the floor until police arrived. Oh, and no surprise here, but Gaudin was apparently really drunk when the cops got there (peep the thumbs gallery to see his mugshot) and didn't even know why he was at the hospital.

So just to recap:

  • An MLB pitcher walked into a hospital three miles away from the Las Vegas Strip at 4:30 in the morning back in January.
  • He then proceeded to touch a woman who was lying on a gurney inappropriately while mumbling sweet nothings into her ear.
  • From there, he had to be physically restrained by the hospital staff in order to get him to stop touching the woman.
  • And when the cops showed up, he told them he had no idea why he was even at the hospital.

Bizarre? Yeah, that doesn't even begin to describe it. Although it happened back in January, Gaudin was just charged with lewdness for his actions. Somebody find Mike Epps and find out what the $^%& he gave this guy that night.
