There is not enough evidence to arrest Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval in connection with an alleged sexual assault at a hotel near Santa Cruz, authorities said Thursday.
Sandoval was named in a complaint that a woman filed with the Santa Cruz County Sheriff's Office on June 1. However, "there is insufficient evidence to support an arrest for the alleged crime," the sheriff's office said in a statement Thursday.
Sandoval, 25, was questioned at the oceanfront Seascape Beach Resort in Aptos about the alleged incident and cooperated with authorities, the sheriff's office said.
Eric Geffon, Sandoval's attorney, said, "The sheriff's department has completed a thorough and professional investigation, and we are pleased that they have concluded that there is insufficient evidence to support an arrest. Pablo will continue to focus on helping the Giants toward a playoff run this season."
