 LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles County prosecutors are declining to bring charges against former Chicago Bulls star Scottie Pippen after a fight with an autograph seeker outside a Malibu sushi restaurant.
Prosecutors said Tuesday there is insufficient evidence against Pippen. They also note 49-year-old Camran Shafighi had a blood-alcohol level more than twice the legal limit for driving, and that could have played a part in the altercation.
The fight occurred outside Nobu restaurant in June, when Shafighi took pictures of Pippen and sought the Hall of Famer's autograph. Shafighi was taken to a hospital with a head injury.
Shafighi has since filed a $4 million lawsuit against Pippen.
Pippen won six NBA titles with Michael Jordan and the Bulls. He now serves as special adviser to the Bulls' president and chief operating officer.
