Kobe Bryant Prepared to Defend Against Church Assault Allegation


Kobe Bryant


Through his attorney, the Los Angeles Lakers star denies that he has inflicted a slight wrist sprain on a young man he thought taking his picture during services at a San Diego church.

Kobe Bryant is speaking out against an assault allegation. The shooting guard for the Los Angeles Lakers was accused of roughing up a young man during a confrontation at St. Therese of Carmel Church in San Diego last Sunday, August 14, but he has through his attorney claimed his innocence.

In a statement issued on Tuesday, August 16, attorney Mark Campbell acknowledged, "Mr. Bryant is aware of the baseless allegations asserted against him." He added that the 32-year-old NBA star "is prepared to defend against them fully." The lawyer also identified the accuser as Thomas Hagos.

Thomas has reportedly filed a police report against Kobe, complaining to have suffered a slight wrist sprain because of a clash with the basketball player. It was said that Kobe grabbed a cell phone from Thomas because he thought the young man was taking his photos. After seeing there were no photos of himself or his wife inside, he returned the phone.

San Diego police would like to talk to Kobe about the alleged altercation, but they won't do that until they have interviewed Thomas. The accuser himself has, through a representative, told police that he will not be available for interview until August 24.
