Charges Dropped in NBA Star Kobe Bryant Church Assault Case

NBA Star Kobe Bryant seems to have finally caught a legal break.

Although lawyers continue to iron out divorce details with his ex Vanessa, Bryant will not be facing charges after accusations that he injured a man last summer at a San Diego church, the San Diego City Attorney’s Office said Tuesday.

Bryant allegedly grabbed the man’s wrist and cellphone at a service in St. Therese of Carmel, thinking the man was taking pictures, and injured his arm. When Bryant found no pictures on the phone, he left the church.

“As prosecutors, we cannot ethically file a criminal case when we lack sufficient evidence to prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt,” District Attorney spokeswoman Gina Coburn said in a statement.
