No Assault Charges Filed for Scottie Pippen Malibu Incident
After an altercation outside of Nobu in Malibu, CA where Scottie Pippen allegedly assaulted Carman Shafighi, the District Attorney has decided not to file charges. However, there is a civil suit pending.
“There is insufficient evidence to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Susp [Pippen] is guilty of committing a crime against Victim,” according to a report by the District Attorney. It goes on to add: “While Susp admits spitting at & pushing away V, the pushing is justifiable & the spitting is unprosecutable if in fact V was the aggressor & initiated the spitting as Susp & his relatives claim. The independent witnesses are vague on this point & V’s implied denial of initiating the spitting can be impeached by the evidence described below & in any event results in a ‘he said-she said’ on this point.”
In the end it looks like Scottie Pippen is in the clear and can go on with his life.
