MALIBU, Calif. (AP) — Former Chicago Bulls star Scottie Pippen was questioned about his weekend fight with an autograph-seeker that left the man hospitalized with a head injury.
Pippen came in voluntarily to a Los Angeles County sheriff’s substation after he was named as a suspect in the altercation outside Nobu restaurant, a celebrity hangout on the beach in Malibu.
The unidentified victim was inside the restaurant taking photos as Pippen dined with his family Sunday evening. When Pippen went outside to the parking lot, the man continued taking pictures and sought the Hall of Famer’s autograph. An argument ensued that led to the violence, investigators said. The man was taken to a hospital with a head injury and was treated and released.
