A bizarre story out of Oregon…

A man who went to the Oregon home of Memphis Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph to sell marijuana said he was beaten with a pool cue in a dispute over the price of pot.

The man told sheriff’s deputies at least three men assaulted him but Randolph was not among them. No arrests have been made, and authorities said none were expected on Monday.

Clackamas County Sheriff’s Sgt. James Rhodes said Randolph was in his home outside Portland when the beating occurred early Saturday. The victim was treated for head and face injuries and released from a hospital later that afternoon, when he called police, Rhodes said.

Officers served a search warrant early Sunday. They spoke with 10 people in the home at the time and recovered pool cues and blood evidence. They did not find drugs in the home.

Randolph just signed a mega-extension from the Grizzlies and has been a pretty good citizen while in Memphis. Yet here’s a guy who just got his ass whooped in Randolph’s home and the victim alleges it was over the price of pot.

Perhaps Randolph is looking to moonlight while the NBA lockout is in effect.
