LAS VEGAS (AP) - Los Angeles Clippers star Blake Griffin is facing a misdemeanor battery charge stemming from a scuffle with a man in a Las Vegas Strip nightclub in October.
Court records obtained Wednesday show the 25-year-old Griffin is due for arraignment Dec. 8 before a Las Vegas justice of the peace on a charge that could get him up to a year in jail.
It wasn't immediately clear if Griffin had a lawyer in the case.
Team spokesman Seth Burton says the Clippers are aware of the complaint, but have no immediate comment.
Las Vegas police had said they were investigating a man's claim that Griffin grabbed him, took his cellphone and slapped him after the man took a photo early Oct. 19 at Tao nightclub at the Venetian resort.
