Blake Griffin Charged With Misdemeanor Battery
Los Angeles Clippers player Blake Griffin has been charged with one count of misdemeanor battery stemming from last month’s altercation in Las Vegas.
As previously reported, Blake was at Tao nightclub with some teammates when he got into a little spat with a party goer. Las Vegas Metro Police Department told 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.
Blake was apparently upset over camera flashes from the victim, so the baller grabbed the victim’s phone, grabbed his neck and slapped him. The Clark County D.A. is now charging Griffin with one count of misdemeanor battery, in which Griffin will either serve 6 months in jail and or pay a $1,000 fine.
The NBA star is due for arraignment December 8.
