Houston Rockets star guard James Harden is being accused of grabbing a woman's wrist and throwing her phone after she claims she recorded video of one of his friends getting into a fight in a nightclub. TMZ is the first to report the alleged incident.

According to TMZ, Harden is not listed as a suspect in the case, but he is named in the report. The woman at the center of the alleged incident says that she was paid $200 by Harden's friend for her phone - and that he gave her another $300 on top.

Still, it appears she somehow left with the phone and the video she originally recorded.

TMZ has more, including a bit about the woman claiming she had to go to the hospital for her wrist injury:

The woman claims she was partying at Mint nightclub on Saturday morning when she claims a member of Harden's entourage got involved in a fight -- and when James noticed she was recording, he grabbed her wrist and snatched her phone before throwing it on the roof so she couldn't sell the footage to TMZ.

She says at some point Harden noticed she was videotaping the action and demanded that she delete what was recorded. She says Harden said he knew her endgame was to sell the vid to TMZ.

According to TMZ, the woman claims that Harden threw her phone on the roof, and that later on in the night, she was able to retrieve it.

Harden has not commented on the story. We'll keep you updated.
