The man who claims he was punched in the face by Draymond Green last summer says he got violent threats after the incident and still wakes up crying … and now he’s suing the NBA star.
The man behind the suit is ex-Michigan State football player Jermaine Edmondson — who says Draymond’s posse attacked him and his GF at an East Lansing bar on July 10, 2016.
Edmonson says he confronted Green the next night — and Draymond punched him in the face. A cop who witnessed the attack arrested the Warriors star for assault.
But Edmondson says his life has been hell since the incident — and things got so bad at MSU (where Draymond went to school) that he quit the team and left the university for a while.
Edmondson says he’s still haunted by the attacks — and feels his name has been turned into a joke thanks to Green.
“I think about what happened with Draymond every day. I still feel his hand on my jaw.”
Now, he and his GF have lawyered up with Lisa Bloom — who’s repped stars like Blac Chyna and Kathy Griffin — and have sued Green for assault and battery.
As for Green, he cut a sweet deal in the criminal case — he agreed to stay out of trouble for a year and the charge was reduced from a misdemeanor to a civil infraction. The year ended on July 22 so he’s basically in the clear with prosecutors.
11:22 AM PT — Draymond’s camp issued a statement saying, “This lawsuit relates to an incident that occurred in East Lansing, Michigan over a year ago, for which Draymond paid a noise violation fine.”
“Draymond looks forward to defending himself and clearing up the misinformation put forth today.”
