Several months ago, you may remember the story of Scottie Pippen getting into an altercation with a fan seeking an autograph. According to reports, this person asked Pip for an autograph, Pip declined, the fan said some nasty things to Pip, and he reacted.
This fan had to be hospitalized and it was widely believed that Scottie would be prosecuted on criminal charges. However, luckily for him, that’s not going to be the case. But that doesn’t mean he won’t face some consequences
After the incident, the man was taken to UCLA Medical Center, where he was diagnosed with a possible concussion, but a CT scan showed no signs of trauma. His blood-alcohol level was found to be 0.18%, double what is considered legally intoxicated in California, records show.
The next day, the man returned to the emergency room after his release from the hospital and claimed to have been diagnosed with fractured ribs and a fractured ankle, investigators said. He was described as being “extremely intoxicated” with no evidence of any fractures, and a physician noted he “was making up stuff to try and have a story.”
