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.”
While police may investigate and prosecute crimes like assault, victims can also file civil lawsuits against their attackers and others involved in an assault.

Yesterday morning, an employee at a cement plant in Cupertino opened fire on several of his supervisors and coworkers, killing 3 and injuring 7.
According to one of the man’s coworkers, he fired the first shots during a weekly meeting at around 4:30 a.m. The 47-year old single father then continued the assault for around 8 minutes.
The worker fled the Lehigh Southwest Cement Plant on foot after the shooting. Police are searching for the man and his friends and family are urging him to come forward.
The injured employees were taken to 3 different hospitals and were reported to be in fair condition.
Our utmost sympathies are with the victims’ families.
