Trevor Bauer will not face criminal charges stemming from sexual assault allegations against the Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher last summer, the LA County District Attorney’s Office ruled on Tuesday, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Bauer, 31, was placed on administrative leave by Major League Baseball on July 2, 2021, shortly after the allegations emerged. The pitcher has faced allegations of physical and sexual assault on a San Diego woman twice.
In August, The Washington Post uncovered court records that showed another woman had previously alleged that Bauer had physically assaulted her and issued a death threat. In a statement, Bauer denied the allegations and said the “false allegations” were made by a woman seeking to extort “millions of dollars” from him.
Although Bauer does not face criminal charges, he could face additional punishment in the form of an MLB suspension.
