Blake Griffin charged with misdemeanor battery

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.

TMZ:

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.
