Cool Bush sued by sports marketer

Wednesday October 31, 2007


On a day when USC ensconced Reggie Bush's jersey under glass at Heritage Hall, allegations that the former tailback received cash and gifts from a would-be sports marketer while still playing for the Trojans made their way into a San Diego County courthouse.

A civil lawsuit filed Tuesday afternoon by Lloyd Lake alleges that Bush and his family accepted more than $291,600 over the course of roughly a year. Lake's attorney, Brian Watkins, said his client is scheduled to discuss the matter with NCAA investigators Friday.

NCAA rules prohibit extra benefits for athletes. According to the suit, Bush, his stepfather, LaMar Griffin, and mother, Denise Griffin, began asking for money starting in November 2004 when they claimed to have "fallen on hard times financially and required immediate and significant financial assistance to support their respective lifestyles."

That money allegedly included about $13,000 that Bush used to purchase a 1996 Chevrolet Impala registered in his name, Watkins said. The suit also alleges that the defendants "promised repayment of monies lent and advanced" and that on Jan. 14, 2006, Bush "reaffirmed his commitment to repay.

Let's see if he can break this tackle. They've got him by the ankles and the others and coming to help take him down. It's about to get much thicker. Money makes the monkey dance and has a way of loosening tight lips. We haven't heard the last of this one.
