Looks like Blake Griffin won’t take any crap from people on or off the court.
Griffin was charged today with misdemeanor battery today, stemming from an incident last month. Griffin, along with his Los Angeles Clippers teammates DeAndre Jordan and Chris Paul, was at Tao Nightclub where the altercation occurred. Griffin apparently grabbed a man by the name of Daniel Shuman. Griffin became annoyed with the cameras flashing in his face and grabbed Shuman’s phone. It was then that Griffin violently squeezed Shuman’s hand, shoulder and/or slapped Shuman in the face.
Not a good move.
Despite being at the club, Jordan and Paul were not involved in the incident, but this isn’t good for Griffin. The maximum penalty he can get for this is six-months in jail and/or $1,000 fine.
Apparently, Griffin really meant it when he said he wasn’t going to take crap from anyone anymore. Maybe the bright lights of LA are also starting to get to him. One thing for sure is, is that Griffin will most likely receive some kind of punishment from the league.
The question is: Just how many games will he be suspended?
