NBA Star Named in Strip Club Beatdown

5/27/2010 2:43 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0527_zach_randolph_EX_GettyIt's been a bad morning for NBA star Zach Randolph -- TMZ has learned the 6'9" All-Star has been named in a police report detailing an alleged brawl in an L.A. area strip club yesterday.

According to the Gardena Police Department, officers responded to Starz strip club around 2 AM Wednesday morning -- after someone called 911 claiming a man named Gary Ferguson had been badly beaten by someone in Zach Randolph's crew.

Ferguson told police Zach was present at the club -- but did not strike him during the alleged attack.

But according to Ferguson, it's not the first time he's had a violent encounter with the Memphis Grizzlies player.

As TMZ previously reported, Ferguson sued Randolph last year -- claiming the NBA star attacked him in a pizza joint back in 2008. That case is set to go to trial in September.

As for the strip club incident -- we're told police are investigating. So far, no charges have been filed against anyone.

Adding to his legal problems -- in the last 24 hours, a report surfaced claiming Randolph has been linked to a drug ring in Indianapolis.

Thanks clippers for the most lopsided trade ever. Appreciate the All-Star. Blake Griffin did good for you guys last year...k that was kinda harsh.

If theres anyone else I wanna see succeed in the West other than the grizzlies would be the clippers. You guys are long overdo.

Here is whats crazy, even when he was playing in high school he got suspended from playing ball for a whole yr for being caught with a gun. Then when he first started NBA he went into a club in muncie with his cousin that had a gun on him and he got in trouble. Plus the guys he grew up with in Marion have always been known drug dealers. If you ever seen when they had him on MTV cribs he had a big poster saying "free hoover" with a 6point star which is representing the Gangster Disciples and Hoover is the leader thats in prison for murder. Its like how stupid do u have to be. When the hell does one grow up?? I'll promise this, this allegations against him are 100% true but he will buy his way out of it.
