  • MALIBU, Calif. (AP) — Los Angeles County sheriff’s officials say former Chicago Bulls star Scottie Pippen has shown up to a substation to be interviewed about a weekend fight outside a Malibu restaurant.

    Department spokesman Steve Whitmore says Pippen came in voluntarily Monday. Authorities now say Pippen is a suspect in an investigation of an assault with intent to commit great bodily injury.

    Investigators say Pippen was involved in a fight outside of Nobu restaurant late Sunday. They say there was an argument between Pippen and another man, who was taken to a hospital with a head injury.

    Pippen helped lead the Bulls to six NBA championships in the 1990s. He is a special adviser to the team’s president and chief operating officer.

    The Bulls declined to comment Monday.

    Former Chicago Bulls star Scottie Pippen was involved in a fight outside of a well-known sushi eatery in Malibu over the weekend that landed one man in the hospital, authorities said.

    The altercation occurred about 6:30 p.m. Sunday in the parking lot of Nobu restaurant, said Steve Whitmore, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. There was an argument between Pippen and the man, who was taken to a hospital with unspecified injuries, Whitmore said. His condition was not immediately available.
