She claims the video was all a misunderstanding.

Giants CEO Larry Baer has taken an immediate leave of absence after a video surfaced of him dragging his wife to the ground at a public plaza Friday. In the footage obtained by TMZ, Baer can be seen wrestling a phone out of his wife Pam Baer's hands and pulling her out of her chair and across the floor. She can be heard screaming, “Oh, my God, no, help!” 

Baer told the San Fransisco Chronicle that he and his wife had "a squabble over a cell phone" and that she had simply lost her balance as a result of a foot injury. He has since apologized for his behavior. 

“I am truly sorry for the pain that I have brought to my wife, children and to the organization," Baer said in a statement. “It is not reflective of the kind of a person that I aspire to be, but it happened and I will do whatever it takes to make sure that I never behave in such an inappropriate manner again.”

The San Fransisco team's board of directors said in a statement that it is "closely monitoring the matter" as the MLB and police investigate the physical altercation.

So who is Larry Baer's wife, Pamela Baer, and what does she have to say of the assault?

1. She defended her husband.

Pam issued a statement of her own, backing up her husband's account of the argument.

“I would like to clarify the events of today," she said of the incident. "My husband and I had an argument in public about which we are quite embarrassed. I took his cell phone. He wanted it back and I did not want to give it back. I started to get up and the chair I was sitting in began to tip. Due to an injury I sustained in my foot three days ago, I lost my balance. I did not sustain any injury based on what happened today."

Pam added that the "embarrassing" occurrence has not affected her marriage.

"Larry and I always have been and still are happily married," she continued.


2. She met Larry at a party in N.Y.

According to a 2008 profile of the Baers, Pam and Larry met at a birthday party in N.Y. in 1988. Larry got Pam's number from the host the day after the event and they went on a date a few weeks later.

They married two years later and have four kids together.

5. She almost lost her son.

In 2001, the Baers' 3-year-old son tripped and fell into a glass door, severing the brachial artery in his left arm. The toddler lost an immense amount of blood and was rushed to San Francisco General, where he underwent hours of surgery to reattach the artery. The surgeries were successful and Pam has been involved with the hospital ever since to show her gratitude.

“The doctors at General still walk on water as far as I’m concerned. I feel, in a way, blessed and grateful, even though at the time, it was the very worst time of my life," she told Haute Living. "It’s still hard if I think about that day, but it also opened my eyes to a lot. It hit my compassion veins very strongly.”
