Los Angeles Clippers player Blake Griffin is facing a misdemeanor battery charge in Las Vegas, court documents show.
The battery charge was filed last week. Griffin will appear in court Dec. 8.
Las Vegas police investigated a man’s complaint that Griffin attacked him during an argument over a photo taken while Clippers players partied at Tao at the Venetian in October.
Celebrity news outlet TMZ quoted a man who said Griffin grabbed his neck, took his cellphone and slapped him after he took a photo at the Strip resort.
