Police do not find enough evidence to charge Kobe Bryant with assault
According to prosecutors with the city of San Diego, police were unable to find sufficient evidence to charge Lakers player Kobe Bryant with the assault of a 20-year-old man at St. Therese of Carmel Church. Bryant was accused of yanking on the man’s arm at the church in Carmel Valley after witnessing the man take a picture of him on his cellphone.
Bryant denied hurting the man, but police say the man suffered a minor wrist sprain after the incident. A statement from the Communications Director of the San Diego City Attorney’s Office reads, “Based upon our extensive investigation and interview of independent witnesses, we’ve concluded that charges cannot be proven beyond a reasonable doubt.”
