San Francisco Giants pitcher Chad Gaudin was charged with lewdness for an incident that took place last January. 

The charge stemmed from Gaudin allegedly groping a woman on a gurney at the Desert Spring Hospital in Las Vegas  on January 27. He was reported to be drunk when he came up to the 23-year-old woman who was situated in the emergency room lobby. Gaudin was said to have touched her breast and face while calling her "gorgeous." A witness even overheard him saying he'll take care of her. 

"I will take care of you, don't worry about them."

Reports also indicate a paramedic was unable to stop Gaudin who was stalled by hospital security until the authorities arrived. When he was restrained by security, he was yelling and swearing

He was arrested at around 4:30 a.m. When asked by an officer how he wound up at the hospital, the Giants pitcher said he didn't know. 

"I asked Gaudin several times how he ended up at the hospital and each time he told me that he didn't know. 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."

Gaudin's lawyer, Dominic Gentile, released a statement on Wednesday saying is client was "experiencing symptoms believed to be related to acute renal failure due to a condition known as rhabdomyolysis. The symptoms included confusion, dehydration and loss of orientation and/or consciousness."

According to ESPN, common causes of rhabdomyolysis are alcohol or drug use, muscle strain or crush injuries, citing the National Institute of Health

In the current 2013 MLB season, Gaudin is 2-1 with a 2.44 ERA. His career record is 42-43 with a 4.46 ERA amassed over stints with the San Francisco Giants, Miami Marlins, Washington Nationals, Oakland Athletics, Toronto Blue Jays and Tampa Bay Rays. 

Gaudin and his wife reside in Henderson, NV.
