Ex-NBA Baller Scottie Pippen Kicked a Guy’s Ass

The Twist Gossip

Scottie Pippen doesn't smileRetired Jordan-era Chicago Bull Scottie Pippen was thought to have been arrested on Sunday for assaulting an autograph-seeking fan in a Malibu restaurant, but he wasn’t handcuffed or charged for breaking the man’s teeth and injuring nearly every part of his body including his back, which isn’t even news. (Slow day.)

I haven’t heard anything about Pippen, who won six NBA titles with the Bulls, in forever.

If you look at the “personal” section of his Wikipedia page, there’s nothing but a yard sale from 2011 and something about his wife being on Real Housewives of Miami.

TMZ reports that Pippen came out of the sinkhole to have dinner with…

HERE’S THE REPORT FROM THE LA TIMES:

Law enforcement sources had told The Times that they expected Pippen to be arrested and released, but Whitmore said detectives concluded after the interview that the case was “a more complex situation” and would require more investigation to determine whether Pippen or anybody else should be arrested.

A statement issued by the sheriff’s department earlier Monday said Pippen was wanted on suspicion…
