Scottie, you caught a break.
Scottie Pippen Will Not Be Charged In Attack On Fan
The justice system worked for Scottie Pippen who won’t see a day in jail for attacking a thirsty fan…that’s what we call winning.
According to TMZ
Chalk up ANOTHER victory for Scottie Pippen … TMZ has learned the retired NBA superstar will NOT be prosecuted for kicking a guy’s ass outside of a Malibu sushi joint back in June.
The L.A. County D.A. determined there was simply not enough evidence to prove Scottie did anything wrong during a confrontation with 49-year-old Camran Shafighi outside of Nobu on June 23.
According to official documents, obtained by TMZ, Pippen — who’s now represented by mega-attorney Mark Geragos — admitted pushing and spitting at Shafighi but officials determined it was impossible to tell if Pippen was the aggressor or if he was acting in self-defense.
Plus, officials concluded the victim was FAKING multiple injuries — and even faked seizures — in an effort to make Pippen look like the bad guy.
According to the document, doctors believe Shafighi’s injuries were minor at best and included a cut to his lip and a bruised chin.
TMZ broke the story … the two scuffled in the parking lot of the restaurant after Scottie refused to pose for a SECOND picture with Shafighi.
Officials claim Shafighi was extremely intoxicated at the time of the confrontation (.18 blood alcohol level) … and also tested positive for opiates.
Shafighi can still go after Pippen in civil court — he’s already filed a $4 million suit — but this is a pretty big blow to his case.
Dude tried to fake seizures to make Scottie look bad…in this case he should have just accepted his azz whoopin’ and kept it moving.
