San Francisco Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval is being investigated by the Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Department for possible sexual assault charges, reports CSN Bay Area's Andrew Baggarly. The 25-year-old Sandoval has not been charged with anything as of now and the police investigation is currently ongoing.
"On Friday, June 1, Pablo Sandoval voluntarily met with the Santa Cruz County Sheriff's Department related to a consensual, personal relationship of a sexual nature that took place on that day," attorney Eric Geffon told CSN Bay Area. "Pablo fully cooperated with the Sheriff's Department out of respect for the process. We have no further comment at this time."
Sandoval's attorney confirmed their client, Pablo Sandoval, did not report to AT&T Park on Friday because he was being questioned by authorities. The Giants organization had no further comment, and are deferring all questions to Sandoval's attorney.
As of right now, Sandoval is scheduled to begin his rehab back from an injury in Class Single-A San Jose.
