Charges of battery against Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin have been dropped
The case stemmed from an October incident at Las Vegas nightclub, where Griffin allegedly slapped a man, Daniel Schuman, in the face. Schuman told police Griffin grabbed him after he took a photo of Griffin with his phone.
Griffin was not arrested and the alleged victim did not seek hospital treatment for any injuries.
Schuman could still file a civil lawsuit against Griffin.
Griffin sat out nearly five weeks this season due to elbow surgery following a staph infection. In his five games since returning to the team on March 15, he has averaged nearly 17 points per game.
