Metro investigating attack complaint against Blake Griffin

Las Vegas police are investigating a man’s complaint that Blake Griffin attacked him during an argument over a photo taken while Los Angeles Clippers players partied at Tao at the Venetian, authorities said Wednesday.

No arrest was immediately made after a man filed a battery complaint Sunday stemming from an altercation involving Griffin and a camera, Metro spokesman Jesse Roybal said. He said the case remained open.

Clippers spokesman Seth Burton said the Clippers were aware of the complaint but had no immediate comment.

The celebrity news website TMZ quoted a man who said Griffin grabbed his neck, took his cellphone and slapped him after he took a photo early Sunday at the Strip resort.

Representatives of the club and Venetian owner Las Vegas Sands declined to comment.

Griffin and the Clippers were in Las Vegas after playing an exhibition game Saturday against the Denver Nuggets.
