DeJuan Blair Cited For Battery on Woman; Allegedly Picked Her Up & Tossed Her
Over the weekend, former Washington Wizards forward/center DeJuan Blair was cited for misdemeanor battery against a woman at a Las Vegas nightclub.
“Las Vegas Metro PD has confirmed … officers were called to Drai’s nightclub at The Cromwell around 1 AM Sunday morning to respond to a report of a man who allegedly got physical with a woman.
The alleged victim told police … she was arguing with Blair over the line into the club when he picked her up and tossed her off to the side. The woman was pissed and retaliated by striking him back — before calling for help.
Sources tell us … when cops arrived they checked security video and decided there was enough evidence to issue a citation to Blair for misdemeanor battery. He was NOT arrested.
However, cops tell TMZ Sports Blair was also issued a “trespassing warning” from the property and told to leave immediately.
People close to Blair tell TMZ Sports he’s adamant he did not throw the woman — as one source put it, “He simply moved her out of the way when he was trying to get by her. Nothing more.””
The woman reportedly refused medical attention and is undecided if she will file a lawsuit against DeJuan Blair.
In February, Blair was traded to the Phoenix Suns, but was released four days later. He is currently looking for a team.
