[UPDATE: 6:00 pm – Scottie Pippen has not been arrested yet, per the Chicago Tribune, but he did speak with police.]
TMZ reports that Pippen knocked the dude out, then kicked him, sending this gentleman to the hospital:
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department tells us … Pippen has since been named as a suspect in a report for assault with a deadly weapon — the deadly weapon being his shoes. We’re told Pippen repeatedly kicked the 50-something-year-old victim when he was down.
As one source put it, “He beat the f*** out of him.”
According to witnesses, the fight started after the alleged victim approached Pippen for an autograph. We’re told Pippen said no, and something happened to set off the fight.
A family member of the alleged victim tells us, he was released from the hospital this morning with broken teeth, a swollen mouth, as well as back and head injuries.
