Kobe is being sued for elbowing an Arkansas man
Kobe Bryant is being sued by an Arkansas man, who claims the Los Angeles Lakers star deliberately elbowed him during a Memphis Grizzlies’ game last year.
Bill Geeslin sat in the stands when the Lakers played in Memphis last Nov. 14. His three-page federal lawsuit filed on Tuesday claims Bryant came off the court during play, landed on Geeslin and “without provocation” committed assault and battery when he struck Geeslin with his elbow.
Geeslin seeks more than $75,000 in damages for unspecified injuries that required medical attention.
