Missing Las Vegas dancer Debbie Flores-Narvaez provoked her ex-boyfriend Jason “Blu” Omar Griffith on Friday, Oct. 22 this year, according to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Incident Report.
The police report testimony of Jason Griffith that day and exactly two months later, on Dec. 22, 2010, during the domestic violence court appearance, says she “taunted” him.
Flores told the three officers who arrived on the scene two months ago–Pearson, Forson and Rowberry–that Jason verbally and physically assaulted her when she was visiting his ex-girlfriend.
Griffith paints a different picture.
Las Vegas MPD detailed the following in their police report, however, which shows that Debbie Flores continued an altercation with her ex-boyfriend that would have been best left to the police to handle.
The ensuing incident in October should also serve as a reminder to other women that taking on a physically larger male adversary on the street–or through a car chase–isn’t always the wisest course of action and could lead to additional violence–which it may have, if Flores does not reappear soon.
First responder arrives to assist Las Vegas dancer
Officer Rowberry was first on the scene, finding two vehicles stopped at Vegas and Torrey Pines.
Debbie Flores’ vehicle had been following Griffiths, according to the police report and had actually made contact with his car at this time.
The report doesn’t indicate if this was due to Debbie rear-ending Griffith on purpose or due to following him too closely when he suddenly stopped.
According to the police report obtained by ABC affiliate KTNV News, Debbie Flores had went to visit Jason’s ex-girlfriend when the incident occurred.
“Blu’s” ex-girlfriend’s name has been redacted from the PD report (a common privacy precaution when released to media and others outside of law enforcement circles).
Las Vegas dancer visiting Griffith’s ex girlfriend without invite?
Jason Griffith’s ex-girlfriend’s address and name were actually both redacted from the report, and it is unclear if Debbie Flores was at the location by invitation or because she was seeking to catch Griffith there, as he did show up (or was already there)–and had to have known Debbie was there through some form of communication from Flores or his ex-girlfriend, or because he was there first.
The Las Vegas dancer told officers she was in her vehicle when Griffith walked up and pulled open her car door, using force to take her iphone from her, hitting her in the left side of her chin with his elbow.
It should be noted officers did not see evidence of physical damage to her face or chin at this time and no priors for violence were reported to LE during the year the two dated.
Debbie Flores-Narvaez was parked “behind” Jason Griffith’s car, according to Officer Rowberry.
The PD report does not make it clear if she pulled in behind Griffith when she arrived or if they were parked on the street and he rolled into a free space in front of her.
What is clear is that he was allegedly able to leave the scene on foot–with her cell phone in hand, enter his vehicle and depart without her having to let his car out of the parking area.
Ex-girlfriend and Flores both follow in separate vehicles
Jason Griffith left the scene. Debbie Flores immediately followed him in her vehicle and the officer’s police report indicate that Griffith’s ex-girlfriend followed in her car as well. It had the makings of a showdown, which is what occurred.
Griffith, realizing they were following him, eventually stopped. According to Flores, he exited his vehicle, she exited hers and his ex-girlfriend exited hers as well.
Flores and Griffith began arguing over the phone. He threw it approximately 100 feet and told Flores he was not going to jail. He had said as much when he took the phone from her initially, she told officers.
Griffith’s story to cops conflicts with Flores story
Griffith would tell cops that he never took the phone the first time Flores said he did, at his former girlfriend’s residence.
“Blu” Griffith said he took the phone only when Flores was following him, when he stopped to confront her and she taunted him with it–holding it up and saying she was going to call the police.
Flores told officers that when she ran to retrieve the phone from where he threw it Griffith followed and pushed her down, kicked her and pulled her hair so hard some of it came out.
Griffith then left the scene and it appears that his ex-girlfriend did too, although not in the same direction.
Flores rear-ends Griffith
Flores followed him in her vehicle however, and he stopped again–quickly, which probably resulted in her hitting the back of his car.
Griffith allegedly exited the vehicle, kicked Flores’ drivers side door (no physical evidence or damage supports this statement) and returned to his vehicle as Officer Rowberry arrived on the scene.
The three officers took statements, Griffith was arrested for domestic violence and coercion, and it was observed that Debbie Flores did have bruises on both her legs, as well as a missing piece of hair from her scalp–which was retrieved at the site.
It is apparent that for some reason Jason Griffith felt Debbie Flores was threatening him with jail. It could have been about the altercation between them that day or some other matter Flores was privy to–and had recorded on her phone.
Prior to this point in their relationship there was no evidence of violence physically between them, and cheating on Flores with his previous ex-girlfriend is definitely not “jail warranting” behavior–even if Flores was pregnant with Griffith’s child, as she told officers.
Griffith had to believe her cell phone held incriminating evidence of some sort and it appears that he deleted it–or thought he had–when he threw it down later, or he felt taking it would stop her from calling the cops (after he got angry she followed him from his job to his ex-girlfriend’s residence), which he says is what happened.
Debbie Flores’ unexplained disappearance makes the case much more sinister and Griffith’s admonitions of innocence much more disbelievable. The ex-girlfriend in this case holds the keys to the truth of that day.
