Police want to talk to Bryant

10:25 am on 17 August 2011

San Diego Police say they're trying to interview Los Angeles Lakers All-Star guard Kobe Bryant over allegations he sprained the wrist of a man possibly trying to take his picture at a San Diego church.

The man said Bryant, who has won five NBA championship rings with the Lakers, grabbed his wrist and took his phone away, only to give it back when he found no photos of himself or his wife inside.

The man, who was not identified by authorities, was treated for a sprained wrist at a local hospital.

Bryant, widely regarded as one of the best finishers of all time in the NBA, has played 15 seasons for the Lakers and appeared in 13 All-Star games.
