( 4UMF NEWS ) Blake Griffin Charged With Battery:

Los Angeles Clippers star forward Blake Griffin has been charged with one count of battery after reportedly slapping a man in Las Vegas last month.

It is a misdemeanor charge, according to Ben Bolch of the Los Angeles Times:

In late October at Tao Nightclub, Griffin allegedly slapped the victim and grabbed him by the neck due to an incident involving a camera, according to TMZ. He faces six months in jail and/or a $1,000 fine.

Depending on how the December trial goes, the NBA will also likely come down with a punishment, although it's unclear whether that will be a suspension or fine.

Griffin, 25, is averaging 24.3 points, 6.9 rebounds and 3.6 assists per contest for the Clippers.
