Scottie Pippen Sued for $4 Million After Restaurant Fight

by July 12, 2013

NBA legend Scottie Pippen got into a fight with a man outside a Malibu restaurant last month, and the guy is taking Pip to court and looking to squeeze him for $4 million. Per the LA Times: “Attorneys representing a man who said he was the victim of a ‘brutal and unjustified physical attack’ by Scottie Pippen filed a $4-million lawsuit Thursday against the former NBA All-Star in Los Angeles County Superior Court. Camran Shafighi, 49, suffers from headaches, nausea, breathing difficulties and other ongoing medical issues as a result of an altercation involving the luxury car business owner and the former Chicago Bull great, said his attorney Lee Boyd. She said the suit is an effort to compensate the Malibu area resident for those problems in addition to economic losses because he is unable to run his business. ‘This has been pretty devastating to him,’ Boyd said in an interview Thursday. ‘This was not the result of some drunken barroom brawl. This is a guy who wanted to take a picture with a cellphone.’ Los Angeles County sheriff’s detectives are continuing to investigate the alleged assault involving Pippen that took place June 23 at Nobu Malibu restaurant in the 22700 block of Pacific Coast Highway.”
