Zach Randolph allegedly involved in strip club beating

May 27, 2010, 2:35 PM EDT

Say what you will about Zach Randolph’s defense, but the man knows how to steal headlines, if nothing else (hyuk, hyuk, hyuk). Just hours after it was reported that some fun evidence was discovered linking Randolph to large amounts of marijuana, TMZ (I know, I know) reported that Zach has also been implicated in a beating that took place early Wednesday morning at a strip club in Los Angeles.

From TMZ:

According to the Gardena Police Department, officers responded to Starz strip club around 2 AM Wednesday morning — after someone called 911 claiming a man named Gary Ferguson had been badly beaten by someone in Zach Randolph’s crew.

Ferguson told police Zach was present at the club — but did not strike him during the alleged attack.

But according to Ferguson, it’s not the first time he’s had a violent encounter with the Memphis Grizzlies player.

As TMZ previously reported, Ferguson sued Randolph last year — claiming the NBA star attacked him in a pizza joint back in 2008. That case is set to go to trial in September.

It’s always a strip club, isn’t it?

No charges have been filed of yet, but things could advance pretty quickly. This latest report only further ensures that Randolph’s summer should be pretty miserable; it’s obviously far too soon to determine his innocence or guilt, but the proceedings alone should put his name in the papers for all the wrong reasons over the coming months.

    Right on the heels of the drug dealer story dude…go Zach! Of course what kind of major drug dealer would he be if there were no strip club beat downs in the mix? Dealin’ and beatin’ on folks go together like chips and salsa bro. I’m waiting for the story about Zach doing a drive-by as payback for invading his territory or just cuz he felt like it!

    Modern atheletes at a strip club with their crew. Boy that sure is unusual. Why do these jack-offs continue this behavior? Pacman, Ray Lewis, Ben Raplesberger, Tank Johnson, The Washington BULLETS, ETC. ETC. ETC. “Great” citizens continually getting away with murder, rape, dogfighting, assaults ETC.ETC.ETC. I think I’ll stick to Golf where infidelity seems tame in comparison. Stop watching the NFL AND NBA until they clean their s#it up. Makes Bonds and Clemens look like angels by comparison.
