Once again, TMZ is on the forefront of breaking news, and sometimes it’s a bit disturbing to hear about. Especially when it involves a man in a physical altercation with a woman.
“San Francisco Giants CEO Larry Baer was involved in a physical altercation with his wife at a public park Friday ... with his wife screaming as he knocks her to the ground -- and it was all captured on video.
“Multiple people witnessed Baer and his wife, Pam, in a loud verbal argument around noon on Friday at a park in San Fran. At one point, Larry was trying to pry a cell phone out of Pam's hands, which she clearly did not want to give up.”
Init, you can see Larry Baer walk up aggressively to his wife who is sitting in a chair at a San Francisco park. Evidently, Mrs. Baer is holding something that her husband wants. He grabs at it but she’s not giving it up without a fight.
That’s when she is knocked to the ground and the two scuffle over the reported cell phone. In the video, we can hear Pam screaming, “Oh, my God! Help!”
Once he has the item in his possession, Baer storms away telling his wife, “Stop. Pam, Stop!”
Seemingly shocked and angry more than hurt, Pam continues screaming, “Oh, my God! Oh, my God!”
The man who shot the video wants it made clear that in between clips that we see on the video, he did intervene and try to help Mrs. Baer.
Witnesses claim police were not called to the scene.
It is “unclear if they were contacted after the altercation.” TMZ reports they are trying to find out.
TMZ reached out to Mrs. Baer by phone to get her take on what went down. She said, "We were having a family fight about someone in my family and that's it."
The outlet also tried to get a comment from Mr. Baer’s people, but no one has returned their call as of yet.
“Baer has been involved with the Giants organization for decades. He was named chief operating officer in May 1996, team president in October 2008 and CEO on January 1, 2012.
According to the Giants website, “Baer and Pam co-chaired the San Francisco General Hospital Foundation Campaign Committee in support of the new hospital, which opened in 2016 as Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center.”
Larry and Pam share four children.
“Well that’s it for Larry Baer”
“That Larry Baer video is just horrible and his wife's screams are disturbing. Deuces.”
“Looks like Larry Baer going to have to resign... SMH I'm a Giants fan but he has to go... I will not buy a Giants ticket until he's removed.”
“I always encourage waiting before making large conclusions on anything like this. All we see is the video snippets.
“But it's no rush to judgment to say that this is very ugly for Larry Baer and the Giants. It's not going away quickly.
Pamela Baer's screams are hard to forget.”
Here is the graphic video:
