Battery charge against Blake Griffin in Vegas nightclub incident dropped

8 Comments

Back in October the Clippers were in Las Vegas preseason game and some players went out to the popular TAO nightclub afterward. There Daniel Schuman claimed that  Griffin squeezed his hand and shoulder then slapping him related to Schuman taking photos of Griffin with his phone. The Las Vegas Police investigated, and the Clark County D.A. charged Griffin with misdemeanor battery.

However, on Tuesday those charges were dropped. From the Associated Press:

Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson said Tuesday that new information obtained since a battery charge was filed in November made it clear that the allegations couldn’t be proved.

At the time, Griffin apologized to his teammates for the distraction but would not comment to the media other than to say he was confident he would be cleared. He has been proven right.

Now we can go back to what happened in Vegas staying there.
