Brian Giles Sued for Bashing Girlfriend: Lawyers release video as proof


Cheri Olvera former girlfriend of Padres baseballer, Brian Giles is suing him for $10 million. The law suit claims Giles failed to live up to an agreement to provide for her and her and her daughter, and also alleges four separate incidents of domestic violence.

If you want all the gory details you can find them here but in a nutshell

• In 2002, a pregnant Cheri Olvera missed a show in Las Vegas. Giles allegedly became angered, and struck her in the face.

• On a family trip with the Padres, Giles, allegedly hit Olvera and gave her a fat lip.

• Olvera claims Giles physically dragged her off a bar stool and out of a bar, hitting her so hard she fell to the floor. For this one the lawyers released video footage below.

• In 2007 Giles allegedly dragged Olvera through an open car window and threw her to the ground.

Olvera’s lawyer said that earlier this year, she became pregnant with Giles’ baby and miscarried after Giles allegedly threw her down a hallway. This was Olvera’s second miscarriage, and even though Giles allegedly beat her through this pregnancy, she doesn’t hold him responsible for that miscarriage.

Classy. Giles will make $9 million in 2009, the final season of his contract with the Padres. Naturally on some of the sports blogs there are knuckle dragging Padre fans saying that Cheri Olvera is a gold digger and that she didn’t really get beaten up. I am inclined to believe Cheri, I mean that is a wife beater mustache if I ever saw one.

    one needs to be devils advocate now a days regarding these situations. First off, profiling is something every american whines about, so somebody's appearance does constitute a conviction. If this has been happening since 2002,why now make a big deal,duh,money. So one has to question her motives,seriously. I do not condone such behavior by either party, but then again, Im not going to jump to conclusions and convict someone with public opinion. 6 years is a long time to be with someone and now that the relationship is over, of course she wants to retaliate because its human behavior to slam a ex. One also has to question her character on why she stayed in the relationship knowing there was no marriage contract or arrangement with a contract. He is a MLB player with millions of dollars in his bank,so one also has to wonder why he never married her in the first place,duh,money.If he did not marry her then what was his motives to not marry her? Did she have issues that prevented him from committing or was it himself with the issues? The video does not prove anything other than a couple having a disagreement, after all, she was sitting at the bar with other men,hmmm. This still does not give the accused the right to abuse, if that is the case,but in this time and era, all parties should be scrutinized. Professional athletes are walking targets for extortion. It concerns me when situations like this arise and immediately the public jumps on the bang wagon to support the abused. I have seen countless situations where both parties abuse each other mentally and physically,but the male tends to receive the end of the stick. Obviously the video does not help the accused,but at the same time, let the courts decide. I have personally seen friends get accused when nothing was done to the other party. Depending on the state and its laws,just verbal accusations could suffice.
