Department spokesman Steve Whitmore says Pippen came in voluntarily Monday. Authorities now say Pippen is a suspect in an investigation of an assault with intent to commit great bodily injury.

Investigators say Pippen was involved in a fight outside of Nobu restaurant late Sunday. They say there was an argument between Pippen and another man, who was taken to a hospital with a head injury.

Pippen helped lead the Bulls to six NBA championships in the 1990s. He is a special adviser to the team's president and chief operating officer.

The Bulls declined to comment Monday.

THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP's earlier story is below.

Former Chicago Bulls star Scottie Pippen was involved in a fight outside of a well-known sushi eatery in Malibu over the weekend that landed one man in the hospital, authorities said.

The altercation occurred about 6:30 p.m. Sunday in the parking lot of Nobu restaurant, said Steve Whitmore, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. There was an argument between Pippen and the man, who was taken to a hospital with unspecified injuries, Whitmore said. His condition was not immediately available.

Investigators were interviewing several witnesses who apparently saw what transpired and criminal charges could be filed, Whitmore said. It wasn't known if Pippen has spoken with authorities.

``Right now it's under investigation,'' Whitmore said. ``We have to interview everybody to find out what happened.''

Nobu has been a Malibu mainstay for nearly 15 years and is frequented by celebrities. The restaurant recently moved to a beachfront location that offers views of the Pacific Ocean from nearly every seat.

Pippen helped lead the Bulls to six NBA championships in the 1990s. He is a special adviser to the team's president and chief operating officer.

The Bulls declined to comment Monday.
