(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

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.

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

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.

If he were a Kennedy he would have been given a ride home.

"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."

This is a good example of why I have not watched an NBA game in years.

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 .........

ON STAR ANNOUNCER: "On-Star! We are here to service you!"
