The San Francisco District Attorney has cleared Giants’ CEO Larry Baer of any criminal charges after a very public altercation with his wife. The DA’s office says the evidence does not support filing criminal charges. Baer is on personal leave from the team, and may still face discipline from Major League Baseball. Baer is seen on video trying to grab his cell phone out of Pam Baer’s hand and knocking her off a chair in the process. She was not injured. Both have publicly apologized for the embarrassing incident.
