A woman filed a police report last month, accusing Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph of strangling her.

TMZ

one week later, officials say the woman changed her story … and during a police interview on March 31st, and said there WAS an argument but Randolph NEVER touched her.

According to official documents … cops say the woman told officers, “she was upset and decided to file a fabricated police report and ‘just wanted to get his money.'”

The L.A. County District Attorney’s office has tossed the case.

It’s a shame Randolph faced these false accusations. Hopefully, anyone who saw the news of the initial report also sees this development.
