Kobe Bryant Allegedly Involved In Altercation

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 cell phone. 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 cell phone.

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 unconfirmed incident.
