Kobe Bryant Won’t Face Charges in Church Incident

The strange case of a man alleging that Kobe Bryant ripped a cell phone out of his hand during a church service in San Diego last summer, has come and gone without the Lakers’ star facing any charges. From the LA Times: “No charges will be filed against Bryant over an alleged incident in August at a church in San Diego, the city attorney’s office announced. A young man had alleged that Bryant assaulted him while both were attending Sunday services at St. Therese of Carmel Church in the upscale Carmel Valley neighborhood. The accuser said that Bryant aggressively pulled on his arm because the Lakers star thought the man had taken his picture. Thomas Hagos, 20, later went to a hospital because of a minor wrist sprain, police said.”

    Probably another typical incident of someone trying to get money the cheap way. Damn, Americans are very litigious

    Despite the wrist sprain the man managed to attend every service to sing the 5th Most Hymns in Church History.
    Though fellow Church-goers claimed he was selfish and never passed the collection plate.

    I wish there was video of this. Most funny sh*t ever. POV cam staring at Kobe and Vanessa. Kobe turns to him, mouth’s the words “turn that sh*t off” to him. He proceeds to take video, Kobe goes over snatches it out of his hands, tosses it on the ground. Camera swirls on the church floor till it’s lens lands on KB and his wife where we see Kobe say to Vanessa, “Your Welcome.”
