On Sunday night, we noted reports that Memphis Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph allegedly hosted a party at his Oregon home that ended with a marijuana dealer being hospitalized after he was beaten with pool cues by Randolph's friends.
While Randolph is still not a suspect in the assault, the picture just gets uglier and uglier as details continue to emerge in the case and.
KGW.com reports that the admitted marijuana dealer, James Beasley, says Randolph personally took the marijuana from him prior to the alleged beating that left him bloodied. Why? Because Randolph allegedly didn't want to pay $200.
"[Randolph] got upset about the price. He thought the price was too high," Beasley explained. "He snatched the weed out of my hands, like, aggressively, he snatched it like basically saying, 'I'm taking your weed.'"
4-7 people -- but not Randolph -- then allegedly participated in the beating.
"My face was covered up in blood, my clothes were covered in blood," Beasley told the television station. "They hit me upside the head. Split my eye open with a pool stick."
Beasley's brother, Robert, told KGW that Randolph allowed the beating to commence without intervening.
"I am very, very disappointed," said Robert. "Zach was there and should have stopped it. He could have stopped it.'"
"They beat him up and left him out there," Robert told KOINLocal6.com. "They robbed my brother. They basically beat him, bust him in his head with a pool stick and left him on a dark road by himself for dead."
KOIN also reported that the family claims the beating left Beasley with "a concussion, stitches and brain swelling."
Beasley's mother, Shikego, told the station that her son had a long-standing relationship with Randolph.
"It's not like he was your groupie, Zach," she said. "You've been knowing my child. You've been partying with my child."
