Two police officers called to the scene of Eddie Griffin's car accident are under investigation for possibly neglecting to give Griffin a ticket for drunken driving and for taking him home after the accident. Griffin crashed into a parked car in March and callers to 911 and other witnesses described him as being intoxicated.
According to the Star Tribune, an employee of a convenience store that Griffin went into after the accident said that Griffin "kept telling employees that he was drunk, he didn't have his license and couldn't go to jail" and offered to buy the owner of the car he hit a new vehicle.

Timberwolves guard Trenton Hassell, who is playing in the Howard Pulley pro-am summer league in St. Paul, said Wolves guard Bracey Wright has been exceptional during individual offseason workouts.
