Police said Tuesday they were seeking to interview Los Angeles Lakers all-star guard Kobe Bryant over allegations he sprained the wrist of a man possibly trying to take his picture at a San Diego church. The man said Bryant, who has won five NBA championship rings with the Lakers, grabbed his wrist and took his phone away, only to give it back when he found no photos of himself or his wife inside, San Diego Police Detective Gary Hassen told Reuters. “Detectives have the case and are hoping to talk with Mr. Bryant,” Hassen said of the incident at Carmel Valley Catholic Church on Sunday.
I'd probably assault so many people if I was that famous... God it would be so annoying. People think they can do whatever they want and be as rude as they want. Maybe Kobe overreacted, but imagine how annoying all that crap he has to put up with would get.
There's probably a lot more to the story than has been said. Kobe has his picture taken everywhere he goes. He's not going to get into a confrontation at a church unless something was said. It's not like he was with someone other than his wife and was trying to hide. Obviously the loser is just out for money to not handle things on the spot.
