Blake Griffin, a man alleged, slapped him in the face at a Las Vegas night club last month.
Police investigated, and they determined enough evidence existed to charge Griffin.
The Clark County D.A. has now charged Griffin with one count of misdemeanor battery.
Ben Bolch of the Los Angeles Times:
The Clippers host the Suns on Dec. 8 at 7:30 p.m. local time.
Remember, this is only one step of the process. There’s a lower standard for charging someone for a crime than convicting him or her, and Griffin has not been found guilty of anything.
For now, expect the courts to sort this out before the NBA gets involved.
