When you’re rich and famous like Kobe Bryant, you can become the target of negative attention. Remember the lawsuit we told you about in July? A prostitute was suing him for not marrying her. Why do we bring this up? Because it appears as if Kobe is facing another ridiculous charge.
The LA Times passes along word of a report saying San Diego police are investigating an incident that allegedly took place on Sunday. According to the Times, the incident occurred at St. Therese of Carmel Church in Carmel Valley, when Bryant allegedly grabbed a cellphone from the man who sustained an injury to his wrist.
Bryant reportedly thought the man was taking photos of him and his wife but saw no photos after inspecting the phone, the Times says.
Alright, so I can believe that Kobe maybe thought someone was taking a picture of him at church. I can also understand why he’d be offended by that type of behavior. But we’re really to believe the man sustained an injury to his wrist because of that? Unless it was an 80-year-old man with frail bones, it’s hard to buy this story. Then again, the type of person who would try to take a picture of Kobe at church would also complain to the police about an assault.
Move along, nothing to see here … except a Scioscia Stare to the person who filed the complaint.
