Giants ace Tim Lincecum slapped with lawsuit

October 6, 2011 |  6:42 pm

Is San Francisco Giants ace Tim Lincecum a rowdy house guest?

Well, that's what his former landlord is claiming in a lawsuit against Lincecum, saying the two-time Cy Young award winner stole and destroyed items in a San Francisco appartment he rented.

The lawsuit, filed Wednesday in San Francisco Superior Court by Mindy Freile, is seeking $350,000 in damages. The lawsuit alleges Lincecum returned to his apartment after the lease expired and "broke, stained, defaced, tore, injured or destroyed" the property. It also claims Lincecum failed to pay rent on time and destroyed personal items belonging to the landlord.

A Giants spokeswoman told the Associated Press the team had no comment.
