Kobe Bryant won't face charges following an alleged incident in August at a San Diego church, the Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday.
San Diego prosecutors reviewed allegations by a man claiming that the Los Angeles Lakers star injured him in a scuffle at a Carmel Valley church.
Police said at the time that Bryant apparently thought the man was taking his picture with a cell phone during a Sunday service and took the phone from him. The man went to a hospital for treatment of an injured wrist.
"As prosecutors we cannot ethically file a criminal case when we lack sufficient evidence to prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt," said a spokeswoman for city attorney Jan Goldsmith, according to the Times. "Based upon our extensive investigation and interview of independent witnesses, we've concluded that charges cannot be proven beyond a reasonable doubt."
After the incident, Bryant denied the allegations.
