Tim Lincecum, who seems like one of the more docile creatures on planet earth, is being accused by a former landlady of causing at least $200,000 in damage to an old house of his in the Mission District. Lets think about that for a minute, what do you have to do to cause $200k in damages to a house?!?! Seems like there must be something amiss, and it should be noted that Timmy is due to make around $22 million this year.
According to the SF Gate:
The three-bedroom, three-bathroom property Lincecum rented at 141 Hampshire St. from May 2010 to February 2011 had a lease provision that allowed either owner or tenant to submit any dispute to confidential, binding arbitration.
Lincecum invoked that provision after landlady Mindy Freile sued him in October 2011. She claimed he had damaged “bedding, doors, carpet, pillows, kitchenware, linens, furniture, household appliances, art work, decorations, patio furniture, lights, lamps and mirrors, among other things’’ around the time his lease expired.
The case has stayed on hold while the courts decide where it belongs. A Superior Court judge refused to order arbitration last March, and the First District Court of Appeal reached the same conclusion last week.
