SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The former landlord for Giants ace Tim Lincecum has filed a lawsuit against the pitcher seeking $350,000 in damages, claiming the two-time NL Cy Young Award-winner stole and destroyed items in the San Francisco apartment he rented.
The lawsuit was filed Wednesday in San Francisco Superior Court by Mindy Freile. She alleges that after Lincecum’s lease expired, he returned to living in the apartment and “broke, stained, defaced, tore, injured or destroyed” her property.
The lawsuit also claims that Lincecum failed to pay rent on time and stole and destroyed his landlord’s personal property and papers. A Giants spokeswoman said the team had no comment.
Lincecum helped the Giants win their first World Series title last year since the team moved to San Francisco in 1958.
