LOS ANGELES (AP) — A lawsuit has been dropped that alleged former Chicago Bulls star Scottie Pippen assaulted a man at a sushi restaurant in 2013.
Pippen’s attorney, Mark Geragos, said Saturday that a countersuit Pippen filed against Camran Shafighi is also being dropped.READ MORE: James Michael Tyler, Who Played Gunther On 'Friends,' Dies

Shafighi filed a $4 million lawsuit against Pippen, accusing him of a “brutal and unjustified physical attack” that allegedly occurred outside Malibu’s Nobu restaurant after Shafighi had sought a picture with the former NBA All-Star.
Los Angeles County prosecutors said there was insufficient evidence to bring assault charges against the 47-year-old Pippen.MORE NEWS: Man In His 20s Dies Hours After Being Shot In Long Beach; Motive Unknown
