WCCO ^ | 6-29-06 | Caroline Lowe

(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

In the video, Griffin can be heard pleading with witnesses to not call police saying, "I can't go to jail."

"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!

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'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.

If he were a Kennedy he would have been given a ride home. If he were a black female member of congress the charges would be dropped. I'm sure they can come up with something special for this guy - he's almost above the law - being a sports celebrity and all.

I was traveling in the SF area a year ago and called a cab to take me to the airport. I was shocked to see that the cab driver had a mini-DVD perched on the ashtray area in front of him, and was watching it intermittently as he was driving.

I was speechless at first -- I couldn't believe my eyes -- then told him to turn it off.

I should have turned in his badge number, but I was in such a rush at the airport that I never had the chance to make the call.

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.

It happens to the extent that some states have written laws dealing with this very thing.

"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."

ON-STAR: "Hello, this is On-Star, we indicate that you have been involved in an accident. May we help you?"

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 .........
