Character history

Ernesto Asaltacunas, born in Santa Clara, Cuba, moved to Liberty City at some point prior to 2008 when, as a twenty-seven year old, he was the star power pitcher for the Liberty City Swingers baseball team. By that time he had a history of dating very good girls, including thirteen year old heiress Jill Von Crastenburg. It is implied that Asaltacunas is a pedophile. In 2005 he was arrested for a criminal sex act on a minor and then in 2006 for possession of a controlled substance (namely steroids). He was also caught with child pornography, although charges were later dropped, and was the central figure in a 2006 doping scandal at the Liberty City Swingers.

  • Asaltacunas is partially a parody of twin brothers Jose and Ozzie Canseco, both Cuban baseball players who used steroids (but never accused of pedophilia). Jose, more notably, was also part of a steroid scandal in 2005 after he accused Mark McGwire and other former teammates of steroid use in his autobiography.
  • Asaltacunas means "Bassinet Assaulter" in Spanish, possibly referring to his pedophilia.
