Former Chicago Bull Scottie Pippen turned himself into Malibu police after an interaction with a fan turned violent!
The six time NBA Champion was reportedly leaving Nobu restaurant when he was approached by an eager fan asked him for an autograph.
For some reason, this seemed to strike a chord with Mr. Pippen as he allegedly PUNCHED the man in the face and knocked him out cold! But he didn't stop there, as he went on to kick the man repeatedly!
The victim was sent to the hospital with broken teeth and serious injuries to his head and back!
Scottie was eventually charged with felony assault with intent to commit great harm before he turned himself in and was arrested!
There's no insight so far on what pushed Pippen over the edge or the extent of his punishment, but we'll definitely think twice before asking him for an autograph next time we see him!
