Comedian, audience member toss drinks at each other

No arrest in Friday fracas at comedy club

Pleasanton made the national news last weekend, thanks to a brief fracas July 13 at Tommy T's Comedy Club.

According to TMZ, a celebrity gossip show, comedian Eddie Griffin dumped his water bottle on an audience member, then threw the bottle at her after the woman became offended at what he was saying and threw a drink at him.

TMZ has video taken by someone in the audience showing Griffin's side of the incident, throwing the water, then the bottle. The video begins after the drink was tossed at Griffin.

According to TMZ, the woman was removed from the club, which closed afterward because of the incident Friday night. Pleasanton police responded to a call from the club in the 5100 block of Hopyard Road, but no arrest was made.

The drink tossing began after Griffin made a joke about homosexuals, TMZ said.
