It's been a while, but Kobe Bryant is in legal trouble again.
The Los Angeles Laker player allegedly ripped a cell phone out of a man's hand at the St. Theresa of Carmel Church in San Diego last month.
Kobe claims the man was trying to take his picture, but that is no excuse for battery. The San Diego police department referred the case to the city's attorney, but think it would be best filed as a misdemeanor battery.
If convicted, Kobe faces a maximum of 6 months in jail!
Seems like a lot for knocking a cell phone on the ground, but he's gotta control that temper. He is, after all, Kobe Bryant. Is it really that shocking that someone would try to take a picture of him?
