What are the justifiable reasons to beat someone up?
Very high on the list is being spit on, that is almost an invitation to get punched in the face. Add on being called a racial slur while holding your child and most reasonable people would say Pippen’s actions were justified.
Here is how it all allegedly went down.
Investigators said a violent argument broke out after an autograph-seeker took photos of Pippen, 47, and his family. The unidentified man was later taken to a hospital with a head injury, investigators said.
But a source said Pippen was the real victim. The fan started the tussle, spit on the ex-athlete and screamed the called him the N-word, the source said, adding that Pippen was holding his 4-year-old daughter at the time.
Fans at times go too far and if Pippen didn’t want to give the fan an autograph while he was eating with his family, the man should have been respectful for that.
How can you be a fan of a player one minute and dropping N-Bombs the next. Scottie Pippen hasn’t been and shouldn’t be charged with assault, if these details are true, the fan is the one who should be arrested.
