Blake Griffin Allegedly Slaps A Man At Tao Nightclub, Victim Files Battery Report
HipHollywood can confirm that Blake Griffin was involved in a little altercation over the weekend which led to a police report being filed.
The Las Vegas Metro Police Department tells HipHollywood that they received a call at 4 p.m. on October 19th from a man alleging that there was an incident at a Vegas resort. The victim named Griffin as the suspect. LVMPD confirmed that the altercation did occur over a cell phone camera and a report was filed.
TMZ first broke the story, the Los Angeles Clippers player was partying at Tao nightclub with his teammates when a man named Daniel tried to take a picture with his cell phone. Daniel told Tao security that Griffin was irritated with the phone’s flash so he “grabbed my phone with one hand.”
According to the victim, his ID and credit cards were attached to the device, so he didn’t let go. That’s when Blake apparently grew more angry and eventually grabbed hold of his neck and demanded Daniel give up his phone “or else.” Eventually, Blake obtained the phone, but when Daniel tried to ask for the phone back, Blake apparently grabbed his neck again.
According to TMZ, when security arrived to the scene, the baller told them to “get him the f**k out of this club.” According to the victim, the Los Angeles Clippers player also “slapped me in the right side of my face.”
We are told that the case is still open and that they are currently investigating.
Clippers player Chris Paul was hosting the night at Tao. Also in attendance, teammate DeAndre Jordan.
