Report: Bryant allegedly injures man in church

Kobe Bryant apparently attended church at St. Therese at Carmel in Carmel Valley on Sunday. At one point, he apparently thought a man was snapping photos of him on his cellphone. And that's where things get hazy. From 10News in San Diego:
Sources told 10News Bryant was attending a church service at St. Therese of Carmel in Carmel Valley Sunday and thought someone was taking pictures of him with a cellphone.

According to police, Bryant took the phone from the man, did not see any pictures and then left the church.

The man claims he injured his wrist in the incident and had to go to the hospital for treatment.

Already, the claims of the man just looking for money are out there, but the police being involved is a little bit higher of a concern, as is the fact that sources beyond the injured man are cited in the report. This could very well be the last we hear of the incident if police conclude there's nothing to it. If it does continue though, it could be a headache for Bryant. 

Because, you know, he really hasn't had enough trouble in the past fourteen years. 

Here's a question. Doesn't Bryant have protection, in terms of bodyguards? Wouldn't they be the best to take care of this situation? Is there a reason Bryant himself is confronting anyone, if the allegations are true?

Well, it's Kobe. So that means the comments should alternate with premature defense and attacks on his character over an uncomfirmed incident.

@ebonyrod2, I appologize, my post was directed towards JJwins, not you. While your posts have been equally stupid for which you haven't yet replied to my posts yet, this one that you've questioned was not directed at you.

Hey guys, it wasn't rape....do your research. The girl claimed he "put it in the wrong place"...so it was sexual assault.

I wish Kobe would try to take my camera, it wouldn't of ended good for him. Hopefully this guy gets a few million off of Kobe. Kobe has gotten away with rape before hopefully he won't get away with this.

 hate crybabies. If you stick your nose in someone else's business, like this guy seems to have, don't cry and whine if you get hurt. Our society is full of people like this. It's particularly disgusting when it's a male (not sure you can say "man" in these cases). Crybabies, whiners, excuse-makers, find-me-a-lawyer-so-I-can-sue-you little weasels.

Report: Bryant allegedly injures man in church

There was a great episode of "Boston Legal" in which Jeri Ryan plays a TV celebrity who is being followed by a paparazzi guy taking pictures of her in public.  So she shoots him, and the lawyers manage to convince the jury that it's ok for a celebrity to assault an unarmed photographer.  In Kobe's case, there were no photos taken at all - it was just paranoia.  Perhaps Kobe gets paid by a church sponsor and he was in the wrong church.  Now I have to admit, there are times that cell phone users irritate me.  The guy who just sits there in his car talking on his cell phone and misses the green light entirely.  The guy talking on the phone who is in front of the line at the convenience store cash register and can't respond to the cashier.  The guy in the movie theater whose phone rings at a suspenseful moment.  The guy in church who interrupts the services with that important phone call that couldn't wait.  But I have never felt the urge to assault any of them.
