Giants pitcher Chad Gaudin is facing a lewdness charge after he allegedly fondled a woman on a gurney at a Las Vegas hospital in January.

Gaudin, 30, was charged in Clark County earlier this month with open and gross lewdness, a misdemeanor.

Gaudin's attorney said Gaudin was at the hospital being treated for acute renal failure, which caused confusion and disorientation.

According to a police report, Gaudin approached a 23-year-old woman at Desert Springs Hospital about 4:30 a.m. on Jan. 27. He told her she was gorgeous and touched her face and breast.

According to the report, a paramedic told Gaudin to leave the woman alone, but he persisted.

A witness then heard Gaudin say to the woman, "I will take care of you, don't worry about them."

Hospital security held Gaudin until police arrived. Witnesses and police said Gaudin appeared drunk.

"I asked Gaudin several times how he ended up at the hospital and each time he told me that he didn't know," an officer wrote in the report. "Gaudin appeared to be intoxicated. He had slurred speech, bloodshot eyes, trouble standing still, obeying commands, an odor of alcoholic beverages and couldn't repeat his house number, where he lives, the same way twice in a row."

When asked after Wednesday's game about the incident, Gaudin said his attorney released a statement and added, "No further comment. Sorry."

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said he did not hear about the arrest before Wednesday and said Gaudin will make his scheduled start Friday in San Diego.

"It doesn't affect our club at all," Bochy said. "I don't really have a comment on that because I just caught wind of it a few minutes ago. I don't know really anything to make a comment on it, but it has zero to do with how we played today or what's going on with this club."

The statement from Gaudin's attorney, Dominic Gentile, was released by the Giants.
