Kobe Bryant’s Lawyer: Church Accusation ‘Baseless’

by August 17, 2011

Not too shockingly, Kobe Bryant’s legal squad quickly swooped in to defend their client, against claims that he hurt a fellow churchgoer in San Diego. From the LA Times: “Mr. Bryant is aware of the baseless allegations asserted against him,’ said a statement issued by attorney Mark Campbell, ‘and is prepared to defend against them fully.’ Campbell identifies Bryant’s alleged accuser as Thomas Hagos, 20, of San Diego. Reporters who went to his home were told to leave by a woman who refused to open the door. Hagos filed a police report saying that Bryant grabbed his cellphone while they were attending services at St. Therese of Carmel Church in the San Diego neighborhood of Carmel Valley. Bryant was angry because he thought that Hagos was taking his picture, according to the police report. Finding no pictures on the phone, Bryant returned it. Hagos later went to a hospital with a slight wrist sprain.”
