Over the weekend an overzealous autograph seeker was at the same restaurant as Scottie Pippen at Nobu in Malibu and continued to take photos of the Bulls legend while he was trying to enjoy a meal with his family. 

Apparently after dinner, Pippen and the man had an altercation in the parking lot as he was trying to get an autograph off the Hall Of Famer, which ended with Scottie hitting and knocking the man unconscious.  The man was brought to the hospital to be treated for head wounds, and then police had questioned Pip about the altercation.

After questioning the Top 50 player about hitting the man, police have decided at this time to not press charges and will investigate further as reported by the Chicago Tribune.


By Monday afternoon, Pippen had been questioned by police and was cooperative, said Whitmore. Pippen was allowed to leave without being charged, said Whitmore.

"Mr. Pippen will not be arrested, there's more here than meets the eye," said Whitmore.

He said the investigation was continuing. "We have to investigate and check with all the witnesses and find out exactly what happened," said Whitmore.

Reports are coming out that the man was “highly intoxicated,” and with no charges being filed it seems as if the man was pestering Pippen and eventually the 6’7 swingman took a swing.
