(WCCO) Minneapolis On March 30, Minnesota Timberwolves center Eddie Griffin was drunk and masturbating when he crashed his luxury SUV into a parked Suburban outside a store in Minneapolis, according to a lawsuit filed Thursday by the man whose Suburban was hit in the crash.
The WCCO-TV I-TEAM obtained copies of 911 calls and store surveillance video of the incident, along with an accident report the police submitted to the state.
Several of the 911 callers that night said Griffin was drunk. One witness said Griffin told him he was watching pornography in a DVD player mounted on the dashboard of his Cadillac Escalade SUV when he struck a Chevy Suburban parked on University Avenue Southeast

maybe he wanted the police to let him get off?
prolly won't be able to beat that rap
"Griffin was not available for comment. When he was interviewed by reporters after the crash happened, he said he had dropped his cell phone as he drove."
He may have dropped the phone, but he picked up something else when he went looking for it....
I just hope that he broke something in the crash that will prevent him from reproducing. Anyone that stupid is polluting the gene pool!
In aviation we'd say he had the wrong stick in his hand.
I know where Santana Foods is!
My former girlfriend lived in an apt about two blocks away. They made damned good gyros! I used to walk over there once in a while from her place.
If these cops drove Griffin home w/o checking to see if he was drunk, it sounds like he may have received preferential treatment.
I suspect the police either recognized him as a Timberwolves player or Griffin told them that he was and promised free tickets.
I hate to think a cop would do that - but it is possible, I guess.
I guess this is the stupid story of the day. Yesterday it was the guy in the Packistani prison who woke up with a light bulb up is butt. Talk about a sound sleeper.
And they thought talking on your phone and driving was bad...
Bet they took extra care when cuffing him...
He rear ended a guy while masturbating? He'll never live that one down.
Not Legal, I would sue the muerda out of him.
Good Lord another brain surgeon with millions because God gave him a gift and he can't handle it.
He could be chasing lions.
You know, this whole thing has so much bad, tasteless, uncalled for joke potential. I just need to leave the thread now.
sports build characters.
Just an adult exercising his constitutional rights /sarc.
I'm thinking of getting one of those fancy cell phones with video recording capability for cases just like this when some jackass crashes into me. Good for evidence in court.
Guess the rumors are not true if he confused the two...
Sometimes you just wanna take your rod out for a drive.
Ewww! Will this show up on a CarFax report?
Get a room...
" ... I reach down between my legs
Ease the seat back
She's blinding, I'm flying
Right behind the rear-view mirror now
Got the feeling, power steering
Pistons popping, ain't no stopping now
Sounds to me that he is a "light" sleeper.
Just the other day I saw an SUV in which a porn flick was very visibly playing on the DVD screen. And I'm thinking, what kind of absolute lowlife can't get in the car without having a porn flick going? And what kind of absolute lowlife doesn't care that others see what he's up to? I mean, for pete's sake, aren't some things better left at home?
As for the basketball player, I hope he is always remembered for this. Yep -- when his time comes (no pun intended) this should be mentioned in his obituary.
I'm guessing the victim was inside the vehicle that was struck, although the article does not really say that he was.
From the comments I've seen in some anti-porn threads, there are quite a few Freepers who don't believe this really happens.
"From the comments I've seen in some anti-porn threads, there are quite a few Freepers who don't believe this really happens."
It happens to the extent that some states have written laws dealing with this very thing.
This guy ought to at least get a Hugh Grant moment on Leno's show
("What were you thinking!?")
"Key questions are why Griffin wasn't tested for alcohol and why the officers drove him out of the city to his home in St. Paul."
Some reporter...she should at least give the title of the "featured film".
I simply want to know what was so incredible to get a guy to wreck his
Escalade and another persons car!
This guy needs to get a grip. Wait...nevermind.
Paging David Stern, paging David Stern........
This is a good example of why I have not watched an NBA game in years.
Eddie Griffin: "Nnnnuuuu, nnnuuuu, oh yea, oh yea---what!!? Who!!??"
ON-STAR: "This is On-Star! We indicate that you have had an accident. Do you need police or medical assistance?"
Eddie Griffin: "Uh no, I don't need any assistance. But you have a nice voice, could you call me Big Daddy please?"
ON-STAR: "A scan of your vehicle indicates that your vehicle lurched to the left several times prior to the collision. We also indicate that your in-dash DVD player was playing Girls Gone Wild 5. You were watching the nightime beach scene. We indicate that your DVD is not working. For an additional fee of $125 I can have another female operator come on-line and we can help you "finish the job" Big Daddy. We have the script for that scene on our systems and can role play it for you. Just relax and enjoy! Or would you rather have us call the cops?"
Eddie Griffin: "$125? OK OK OK! That sounds great! Don't call the cops! Let me find my bottle of Jack Daniels and .........
ON STAR ANNOUNCER: "On-Star! We are here to service you!"
He should know better than to play a pick up game of 5 on 1.
wow should he be charge with car jackin ?
No pun intended I am sure! :-)
Eddie's O Face.
B!tch set me up!
