Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin has been charged with slapping a man in a Las Vegas nightclub. As previously reported, Griffin allegedly laid the hand of God on this man for taking his pic in Tao.
The incident went down last month when Blake was at Tao Nightclub. According to the alleged victim — Daniel Schuman — the Clippers superstar was upset by camera flashes in his face … so he grabbed Daniel’s phone and neck. Daniel says Blake squeezed his neck, and demanded he give up his phone.
According to docs — obtained by TMZ Sports … the Clark County D.A. has now charged Griffin with one count of misdemeanor battery. He faces 6 months in jail and/or a $1,000 fine — though a jail sentence is highly unlikely since Blake has no prior convictions for violent crimes.
There is also security footage of at least part of the incident that shows a confrontation, but no pimp slap is seen.
How are you a grown man sneaking a cell phone pic of a celebrity, though?
