Shamed Giants CEO Larry Baer has apologized after he was captured on video hurling his wife from a chair.

The multi-millionaire was caught on video at a San Francisco plaza assaulting Pam Baer.

The 61-year-old said: "I am truly sorry for the pain that I have brought to my wife, children and to the organization.

"It is not reflective of the kind of a person that I aspire to be, but it happened and I will do whatever it takes to make sure that I never behave in such an inappropriate manner again."

And his beleaguered wife seemed to back her husband when she released her own statement.

She said: "I would like to clarify the events of today. My husband and I had an argument in public about which we are quite embarrassed. I took his cell phone. He wanted it back and I did not want to give it back. I started to get up and the chair I was sitting in began to tip.

"Due to an injury I sustained in my foot three days ago, I lost my balance. I did not sustain any injury based on what happened today. Larry and I always have been and still are happily married."

Despite her account many will remain unconvinced as her husband appeared to be the aggressor in the clip.

One on-looker revealed: "He knocks her down off her chair and gets on top of her and puts his hands on her," he said. "She was screaming for help. She seemed pretty terrified."

Baer joined the Giants in 1980 as marketing director, he then became president in 2008 and CEO in 2012.

He and Pam Baer met at a 1988 birthday party in New York and married two years later. The couple has four grown children.

San Francisco police said the incident was 'still under investigation.
