Los Angeles Clippers Forward Blake Griffin was arrested, accused of slapping a man inside a Las Vegas nightclub according to TMZ.

The incident took place last month at Tao Nightclub. According to the alleged victim — Daniel Schuman — the Clippers superstar was upset by camera flashes in his face … so he grabbed Daniel’s phone and neck. Daniel says Blake squeezed his neck, and demanded he give up his phone.

The Clark County D.A. charged Griffin with one count of misdemeanor battery. He faces 6 months in jail and/or a $1,000 fine — though a jail sentence is highly unlikely since Blake has no prior convictions for violent crimes.

Blake was with DeAndre Jordan and Chris Paul that night. None of the other players were involved in the alleged incident.
