Man claims he was beaten at home of Grizzlies F Randolph
A Portland, Ore., man told police that he was beaten at the home of Memphis Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph at a party early Saturday morning.
James Ruben Beasley said he was beaten bloody by four to seven men using pool cues, but said Randolph was not involved in the attack that occurred at about 4 a.m.
Beasley was treated at a hospital for head wounds but did not call police until early Saturday afternoon.
According to police, Beasley said he met Randolph aboard a charter cruise Friday night and was invited back to the player’s mansion to sell marijuana to his guests, which numbered about 20.
After Beasley complained to police, they searched Randolph’s home and discovered blood evidence and pool cues that were consistent with the victim’s allegations, according to a spokesman for the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office.
No drugs were found in the home, and Randolph declined to give police a statement on the advice of his attorney.
