Suit: NBA Player Watching Porn, Drunk Before Crash
Claim Targets Minnesota Timberwolves’ Eddie Griffin

(CBS) MINNEAPOLIS A lawsuit was filed Thursday against Minnesota Timberwolves forward Eddie Griffin and the Minneapolis Police Department in connection with an accident involving Griffin in late March.

Interim Police Chief Tim Dolan ordered an internal investigation of the incident after the WCCO-TV I-TEAM contacted him last week about the crash, reports WCCO-TV’s Caroline Lowe.

The lawsuit alleges Griffin was visibly drunk when he crashed his Cadillac Escalade into a parked Chevy Suburban in front of a store in southeast Minneapolis.

It also claims Griffin told a witness he was watching pornography and masturbating as he drove that night.

Witnesses said the two officers who handled the incident did not test Griffin for alcohol. Instead, they gave him tickets for driving without a license and inattentive driving and also drove him to his home in St. Paul.

WCCO-TV has obtained a copy of the store’s security video and audio of the 911 calls from that night and plans to air them Thursday at 11 p.m. ET.

    LOL@the mistress.

    I think that was a little TMI on Griffin’s part. I would fire my publicist or just kept my mouth shut, and threw the DVD out the window. That whole thing could’ve went another way.
