- The Washington Times - Monday, June 24, 2013

NBA legend Scottie Pippen was arrested Monday on felony assault charges after allegedly knocking a man out in Malibu Sunday night.

The former Chicago Bulls star was at Nobu when he reportedly got into a fight with a man in his 50s outside the restaurant after he refused to give the man an autograph, authorities said.

Eyewitnesses said Mr. Pippen knocked the man out cold with a punch to the face, according to TMZ.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department told TMZ that Mr. Pippen repeatedly kicked the man when he was down. He has been charged with felony assault with intent to commit great bodily harm.

A family member told TMZ that the victim was released from the hospital this morning with broken teeth, a swollen mouth, and back and head injuries.
