Poor Randy Foye. Dude had to put on three different rookie hats in less than half an hour before someone finally told him where he was going. Now he's going to be ignored for a few days because of the following allegations which seem almost unbelievable. No one in my office can figure out why you'd tell that stuff to anyone, especially after you'd just hit a parked car.

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.

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.
