NBC San Diego is reporting that the alleged Brian Giles lady abuse was caught on surveillance tape. The tape was shot in an Arizona bar back in 2006 and released to the press yesterday; it could possibly earn Giles' ex a $10 million prize on America's Punchiest Home Videos:
According to a Phoenix police report, a man seen in the tape walking toward the bar is Giles, a Padres outfielder. The man is seen talking to a woman who's sitting down at the bar.At one point, it appears he pulls the woman's hair. Moments later, the two are seen walking out into the hallway.
A few seconds pass, then the woman can be seen falling to the ground.
Several witnesses told police that they watched Giles slap the woman in the head, knocking her to the ground. In the surveillance video, one of the witnesses can be seen mimicking a slap to another bar patron.
Here's the video:
We owe many, many Cokes to the good folks at Gaslamp Ball. They are always at the forefront of breaking Padre news.
