LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles County prosecutors are declining to bring charges against former Chicago Bulls star Scottie Pippen after a fight with an autograph seeker outside a Malibu sushi restaurant.

Prosecutors said Tuesday there is insufficient evidence against Pippen. They also note 49-year-old Camran Shafighi had a blood-alcohol level more than twice the legal limit for driving, and that could have played a part in the altercation.

The fight occurred outside Nobu restaurant in June, when Shafighi took pictures of Pippen and sought the Hall of Famer’s autograph. Shafighi was taken to a hospital with a head injury.

Shafighi has since filed a $4 million lawsuit against Pippen.

Pippen won six NBA titles with Michael Jordan and the Bulls. He now serves as special adviser to the Bulls’ president and chief operating officer.
