Griffin, Eddie

Charge: Inattentive driving

Arrest Date: March 30, 2006

Franchise: Minnesota Timberwolves

Age 23

Details: The late Eddie Griffin received his fourth and final nba arrest in 2006, about a year and a half before his drunk-driving death.  After crashing his SUV into a parked car he was charged only with inattentive driving.  A few months later, however, a surveillance video surfaced of him professing his drunkenness following the crash.  In addition,  a lawsuit later was filed against Griffin alleging he was not only drunk but masturbating to a pornographic DVD while driving, causing the accident.
