The Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s office will not charge Pablo Sandoval with sexual assault.
Deputy April Skalland told KTVU there was “insufficient evidence to support an arrest.” Sandoval was being accused of sexually assaulting a Santa Cruz woman at the Seascape Beach Resort in Aptos.
The abuse was reported to the Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Office at 4:30 am. Sandoval was last seen leaving Motiv on Pacific Avenue in Santa Cruz at 1:30. According to bar manager Isaac Cook, Sandoval left alone.
While still no details about the alleged assault or victim have been released, Sandoval had been cooperating fully with the police.
An exonerated Sandoval means his fan-friendly image remains largely unmarred. So, Giants fans, you are free to continue your love affair with the Panda.
