Los Angeles County sheriff’s office spokesman, Steve Whitmore, offered the following: “He came in to be interviewed, he’s been cooperative…Mr. Pippen will not be arrested, there’s more here than meets the eye.”
Per witness accounts, a fight began near the valet station outside the restaurant, but there were no other details on what started the fight.
TMZ reported Monday that Pippen may have seriously injured the man in the reported altercation and would be charged with felony assault. It said Pippen turned himself in to authorities in Malibu and that the man was knocked out after Pippen allegedly punched him in the face and kicked him repeatedly.
There is still no mention as to the impetus behind the ordeal, only that the man suffered “broken teeth and a swollen mouth,” as well as head and back injuries.
