Scottie Pippen Being Sued $4 Million After Altercation

Basketball Hall of Fame member Scottie Pippen was involved in an altercation last month with an autograph seeker, leaving the fan with injuries after beating him up.

Exactly what happened was the fan apparently called Pippen racial slurs and spit on Pippen, all while the former Bull was holding his daughter.

Both sides of the story have been told, and now the victim Camran Shafighi, has filed a $4 million lawsuit against the champion Bull. Pippen was not arrested or charged after the incident, and Shafighi had to receive treatment at a hospital.

Pippen’s reputation should remain intact, though it will be interesting to see if anything results from this legal action.
