scottie pippen charges dropped

Scottie Pippen will not face charges for a fight outside a restaurant in Malibu.

Via TMZ:

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.

The fight started after Shafighi got unruly when Pippen refused to pose for a second picture with him. While Shafighi’s blood alcohol level was at .18, he also tested positive for opiates.

Shafighi has still filed a $4 million suit in civil court, but this information is sure to weaken that case.
