Blake Griffin allegedly slapped up a clubgoer in Las Vegas for taking his pic with a cellphone. The cops are investigating the allegations against the NBA star.
Here’s what we know … a man named Daniel says he was partying at Tao nightclub in the Venetian in the early hours of October 19th when he tried to take a cell phone pic of the crowd.
According to a statement Daniel gave to Tao security, the man says Blake (who was partying at the club with his L.A. Clippers teammates) was bothered by the flash of the camera — and “grabbed my phone with one hand.”
Daniel says he didn’t let go of the phone because his ID and credit card were attached to it — so Blake grabbed his neck and began to squeeze while demanding Daniel give up his phone “or else.”
According to the statement, the two eventually separated after Blake took the phone — and when Daniel tried to ask for it back, Blake struck again … grabbing his neck and squeezing for a second time.
Daniel says when security finally got to the scene — Blake told them, “Get him the f**k out of this club.”
Daniel says Blake then “slapped me in the right side of my face.”
Griffin was definitely at Tao since CP3 was hosting a party there (the Los Angeles Clippers training camp is in Vegas). If he did lay the smacketh down, safe bet this will be settled out of court, quietly.
Recently, Griffin graced the cover of GQ magazine.
