Scottie Pippen, the former Chicago Bull star, has allegedly been involved in a fight outside a Malibu restaurant.
The Pippen fight happened outside the Nobu Sushi restaurant on the Pacific Coast Highway. The other man involved in the fight was reportedly sent to hospital by Pippen.
Eye witnesses reported to police that, at around 6.30 pm, an argument broke out between the man and Pippen in the parking lot of the restaurant next to the valet stand.
Steve Whitmore from the Los Angeles County sheriff’s office said that an argument sparked off between the two men:
“That argument led to an altercation. Our detectives are investigating this right now.”
Whitmore was unable unable to comment on the man’s condition or age, just that he was sent to hospital following the fight. He said:
“Charges could follow, we don’t know. We have to investigate and check with all the witnesses and find out exactly what happened.”
No further information is available at this time as to the extent of the fight. No doubt more details will be forthcoming in the coming days.
