Tim Lincecum's ex-landlord is suing the Giants pitcher, claiming he trashed his Mission District townhome, causing more than $200,000 in damages.

According to the lawsuit, which was filed yesterday in San Francisco, Lincecum, better known as The Freak, broke plaintiff's personal property and stained, defaced, tore, injured or destroyed items inside the furnished Hampshire Street home. He also damaged bedding, doors, carpet, pillows, kitchenware, linens, furniture,

household appliances, art work, decorations, patio furniture, lights,

lamps and mirrors, said Mindy Freile, his ex-landlord who filed the suit.

Freile is seeking $350,000 in damages.

Lincecum was supposed to leave the apartment in "broom clean" condition

before moving out in February 2011 when his lease expired. But when he

finally vacated, the apartment was in shambles, the claim says.

Rick Thurman, Lincecum's agent in Los Angeles told the Chron that the lawsuit was completely frivolous.  "It's a totally unwarranted lawsuit, and I'm not going to dignify it more by commenting further," Thurman said.

Here's a copy of the lawsuit.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
