Sorry if this is deemed innapropriate or what not, but I found it hilarious.
---------------------------------------------------

(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.

The location where Griffin crashed is located a couple miles from the Target Center where Griffin had played with his team several hours earlier.

Abed Hassuneh, who is the brother of the victim, said Griffin told him, "That he was masturbating himself going down that street. That's how the accident happened because he was not paying attention. He's paying attention to that video and all of a sudden he's shoveled somebody's car on the top of the sidewalk."

Interim Minneapolis Police Chief Tim Dolan ordered an internal affairs investigation of the conduct of the two officers who responded to the scene, after the I-TEAM made Dolan aware of allegations about the incident.

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. Griffin also received tickets for not having a license and inattentive driving.

Griffin's damaged SUV was towed to the Minneapolis impound lot.

Dolan told the I-TEAM he expects impartial policing. Dolan also said officers must get permission to leave the city.

"Obviously, if somebody is drunk and they are driving we want that dealt with by the police officers of Minneapolis," Dolan said.

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

The video also shows Griffin admitting he is drunk and doesn't have a driver's license.

The video shows him struggling for minutes to put on his sweatshirt and offering to buy a car for the man who's SUV he crashed into in front of Santana Foods.

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.

The two officers involved in the incident, Daniel Anderson and Matthew Lindquist, have been with the Minneapolis Police Department since October 2001. The officers remain on duty pending the outcome of the internal investigation.

And if I'm recalling correctly, the Rox coulda had R-Jeff instead of this guy.

Was that a JVG trade? He'd still be pulling his hairplugs out.

That's why he's a professional athelete. Let's see you've got a beer in one hand, your package in the other, you have a dvd player going with your latest full-booty-action and maybe some loud tunes banging away at the eardrums and your happily, busily tooling down the street. Now if he also really lost his cell phone that's really something.

Musta lost either the beer or his package on a crossover and couldn't recover in time to avoid the offensive foul.

Would this technically be considered a carjacking?? (stolen from Bob and Tom)

Waiting for him to be interviewed by Rush Limbaugh.

Should he do hard time for this? Or just a stiff fine?

If he does go to jail, I bet he'll get off under a mandatory release program.

At least he's an athlete who understands the value of manual labor.

Ouch. That's it for his career. Seems like everywhere you hear another bad story about a player leaving high school to go to the NBA. Now that I think about it, its always Griffin who ends up making the headlines lol.

I guess he took it a little literally when his teammates told him to f*** himself.


I wonder how many non-Nba fans will think it was the comedian.

The thought of a drunk driver whos watching porn while jerking off is hilarious... why hasnt that been in a comedy movie yet?

Side note: Hes a professional athlete... you think he would have enough money to get someone to do the work for him, hell even a hooker. Must be cheap, good to know theres athletes out there who jack it the same way the middle class americans do.

Why would someone want to blow their load while driving is beyond me. That's just sooo embarrasing. I would think he is probably done for sure with the T-Wolves and McHale is on the phone right now trying to get some kind of deal done to send him packing.

I don't understand it either, and I would also expect him to be gone very soon.
