    Post Blake Griffin faces battery charge after incident at Las Vegas nightclub

    http://espn.go.com/los-angeles/nba/s...egas-nightclub

    Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin has been charged with one count of misdemeanor battery for an incident in a Las Vegas nightclub last month.

    According to the filing Wednesday in the Clark County District Attorney's office, Griffin "wilfully and unlawfully used force or violence" on Oct. 19 on Daniel Schuman, squeezing Schuman's hand and shoulder and/or slapping him on the face. According to reports at the time of the incident, Griffin was upset by camera flashes in his face and grabbed Schuman's phone.

    Teammates DeAndre Jordan and Chris Paul were with Griffin at the club that night but were not involved in the alleged incident.

    According to police, the maximum penalty if convicted is six months in jail and/or a $1,000 fine.

    Court records obtained Wednesday show Griffin is due for arraignment Dec. 8 before a Las Vegas justice of the peace.

    Oh. My. Goodness.

    Okay. Blake shouldn't have reacted. I get it.

    But since when is it "misdemeanor battery" when a guy ... squeezes someone's hand ?

    And what is up with this "and/or" slapping him on the face? Schuman couldn't remember if he was slapped or not? How drunk off his rocker was this man, anyway?

    What a frivolous lawsuit. If stuff like this is cause for misdemeanor battery, almost every man in America would be spending time in jail and paying fines.
