Hamed Haddadi, Girlfriend, Charged With Domestic Assault

by Marcel Mutoni / @marcel_mutoni

There were only two games on the NBA schedule last night, so most players in the L spent the day stuffing themselves with turkey. Hamed Haddadi was the only one who spent it inside a jail cell. I don’t think they serve turkey there.

The Grizzlies‘ back up center was taken into custody (along with his girlfriend) by Memphis police after what appeared to be a fight took place at their apartment.

The Commercial Appeal has the details:

Hamed Haddadi, a backup center from Iran, got into an altercation with his girlfriend, Goolnaz “Asal” Karbalaeinematmoeeney, at about 5:35 a.m. Thursday, police said. Upon arrival at the 12th-floor apartment, police found Karbalaeinematmoeeney — who was “extremely intoxicated,” according to the affidavit — bleeding from her head and hand. She had a cut near her right temple, another on her hand, a black eye and bruising around her neck. It’s uncertain exactly what happened, as both involved gave conflicting testimony, police said.

Karbalaeinematmoeeney told police that Haddadi was upset after he saw her talking to another man. He choked her and shoved her against a wall, she said. A witness also told police that she saw Haddadi choking the woman. When police questioned Haddadi, they found him with several scratches on his face and a wound on his hand. According to Haddadi, however, the dispute arose after an amorous attempt went awry, with the woman falling out of the bed. Haddadi said that prompted her to throw a soap dispenser at him, but that he deflected it back into her head, causing the laceration.

An unfortunate situation all around.

Grizzlies GM Chris Wallace released the following statement: “We are aware of the situation involving Hamed Haddadi. We will have no further comment until the legal process has been carried out.”

    “Amorous attempt went awry”. Oh, Hamed. I guess that’s what happens when you use her last name as the safety word.

    He been hanging around Z-Bo too much. And Karbalaeinematmoeeney is a crazy-ass name. In the military when we had cats with long, crazy names like that, we just called them “Alphabet”.

    This guy is from Iran, Were smacking around yer old lady is a national pastime. Not like domestic violence isn’t the #1 crime U.S. police respond to BUT, this guy is a pro athlete,time for a wake call for ol’ Hamed. Beating women is not acceptable behavior.

    Didn’t know they mastered the force in Iran’s basketball academies.
    He deflected something she threw back at her head!!
