Why police want to speak with Kobe Bryant

From Comcast SportsNet Wednesday, August 17, 2011
SAN DIEGO (AP) -- A police spokesman says detectives want to interview Kobe Bryant after a man claimed he was injured by the Los Angeles Lakers star during a confrontation at a church. Police say Bryant apparently thought the man was taking his picture with a cellphone at a Carmel Valley church on Sunday. Bryant reportedly took the phone from the man but saw no pictures on it, then left the church. According to broadcast reports, the man, whose identity hasn't been released, went to a hospital for treatment of a wrist injury. Police spokesman Detective Gary Hassen said Tuesday that detectives were told they won't be able to talk to the alleged victim until Aug. 24. In a statement to the Los Angeles Times, Bryant attorney Mark Campbell said Bryant "is aware of the baseless allegations asserted against him and is prepared to defend against them fully."
