Cops Turn Kobe Bryant Church Assault Case Over To Prosecutors
A parishioner at the St. Theresa of Carmel Church filed a police report last month against the L.A. Lakers star, claiming Kobe ripped a cell phone out of his hand in church, accusing the man of trying to take Kobe's picture.

Calls to Kobe's people were not immediately returned. more on this story
