Chad Curtis, Former Angels Outfielder, Accused of Inappropriate Touching of Girl Students

chad-curtis-angels-square.jpg
Chad Curtis was a spark plug for what was then the California Angels of the early 1990s, and over a 10-year career that also included time with the Tigers, Blue Jays, Dodgers, Indians, Yankees and Rangers, he hit a respectable .264 with more than 1,000 big league hits. Now a substitute teacher and weight-room volunteer at Lakeview High School in Woodland, Michigan, 43-year-old Curtis is not fighting off inside pitches but allegations he inappropriately touched two female students.

Charges have not yet been filed, but Curtis has been suspended from his job pending the ongoing investigation, which may also complicate his plans to become Lakeview High's head football coach in the fall.

Curtis debuted in the bigs with the Angels in 1992, and he went on to play all three outfield positions with the Halos. He was traded three seasons later to Detroit for veteran utility man Tony Phillips. Indeed, Curtis had his best season with the Tigers, batting .268 with 21 homers, 67 RBI and 25 steals.

At least he had the honor of stonewalling Jim Grey after his walk-off homer in the World Series (b/c of Grey's pre-game interview with Pete Rose where he tried to trick Rose into admitting he bet on the game).

Sandusky was a successful person. Most people who knew him believed him.Kobe was a successful person. Most people who knew him believed him.etc.  

Not saying Chad did anything but when you choose a handle like factcheck maybe you should provide some facts rather than just spin. Weak spin at that.

Kobe was accused...never charged brought to trial, convicted etc. etc. etc.............bad analogy................Has Sandusky been convicted?  Or do you go by guilty until proven innocent?

Kobe was arrested, eventually reached a settlement out of court with the accuser, case was dismissed when the accuser became unwilling to testify.

Perhaps a rush to judgement with Sandusky but with impartial eyewitness Mike McQueary being the one reporting initial allegations, yes I beleive he is guilty.

If he did this? Doesn't it make you wonder about men who have so much going for themselves and then they eff it up by doing something so stupid and appalling?

Too many times we read about this exact problem, are they so arrogant that they think they won't get caught or are they just that STUPID?
