Thanks to San Diego Fox 5 for the story.
After being involved in an incident at church this past weekend, Kobe Bryant appears to have most of his fellow parishioners appear to be on his side. Bryant, who reportedly took a man’s cell-phone after suspicions that the man was taking his picture, ultimately gave the man back his phone and left the church quickly.
Most of the individuals at the church with Bryant at the time said that they believe paparazzi is something that shouldn’t be permitted inside a house of worship. Whether or not Bryant will face more consequence from the incident is yet to be seen, but in this case it is apparent that the public, at least the church-going public, is on Bryant’s side.
Bryant has denied the incident turned violent, or at least hurting the individual. He didn’t deny the fact that he did look at the accuser’s phone.
The accuser is unable to speak publicly about the incident due to the ongoing investigation. According to the Los Angeles Times the accuser can be interviewed August 24th at the earliest.
