The arrest of Scottie Pippen:
He's considered one of the best small forwards in NBA history, and teaming with the legendary Michael Jordan…
… helped to lead the Chicago Bulls to six NBA titles.
So respected was he, that the Bulls retired his uniform jersey, number 33.
However, in June, 2013, Pippen was arrested after sending an autograph seeker to the hospital, although he was severely provoked.
Scottie was dining with his family at a restaurant in California.
The victim was snapping photos while the retired NBA star and his family was eating.
When Pippen left and went to the parking lot, the man continued taking photos. He also asked for an autograph. An argument followed. Pippen says the man called him the name no Black wants to hear and he decked him, even though Scottie was holding his four year old daughter at the time.
The man suffered a head injury and several witnesses said he appeared to be drunk.
Nevertheless, Pippen was hauled in for questioning and was released after an hour. On August 27, 2013, the Los Angeles district Attorney announced that no charges would be filed against Pippen.
His previous brush with the law was a drunken driving arrest in 1999. His booking photo in that incident tops this page.
