Grizzlies center charged with assault

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Police say Hamed Haddadi of the Memphis

Grizzlies and his girlfriend have been charged with assault

following an altercation between the two.

Memphis police officers were called Thursday morning to a

downtown apartment building and found Haddadi, a backup center from

Iran, and his girlfriend with bruises and scratches.

The arrest report says a verbal disagreement turned physical,

and both Haddadi and Goolnaz "Asal" Karbalaeinematmoeeney were

taken to the Regional Medical Center for treatment.

Grizzlies general manager Chris Wallace said in a statement that

the team is aware of the incident and withheld comment while they

gathered facts.

Haddadi has played in only four of the Grizzlies' first 15

games.
