The incident, which was first reported by TMZ, involved a woman who claimed she was "roughed up" by Harden at the Mint nightclub in Scottsdale. That is when Harden stepped in and grabbed her by the wrist, took her phone, and proceeded to toss it onto the roof.

Security reportedly broke up the fight. "She took the money, and then she says Harden came up to her and handed her another $300".

According to TMZ, the woman said Harden noticed she was videoing the incident and demanded she delete the video.

She also claims that Harden launched her phone onto the roof "so she couldn't sell the footage to TMZ". The woman says she later climbed onto the roof to retrieve her phone and was eventually treated for a wrist injury at a local hospital.

A spokesperson for Scottsdale PD said Harden's name is listed in the incident, but it was "far too early" in the investigation to say what Harden's involvement was.

If that is indeed Harden who does the phone throwing, this would be the second time in a month that an National Basketball Association star has launched someone's phone after they were taking a photo or video of them, as J.R. Smith found his way into headlines for a similar incident in NY. Naturally, she still went on to give TMZ the video that can be seen here.
