LOS ANGELES (AP) - Scottie Pippen has filed a countersuit against a Southern California man who claims the former Chicago Bulls star assaulted him at a sushi restaurant last year.

The Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/1dzzge5 ) says the cross-complaint filed this month alleges 49-year-old Camran Shafighi cursed at Pippen using racial slurs, spat on him and his children and threatened to kill him.

Pippen's suit calls for unspecified damages.

Shafighi filed a $4 million lawsuit against Pippen, accusing him of a ''brutal and unjustified physical attack'' that allegedly occurred outside Malibu's Nobu restaurant after Shafighi had sought a picture with the former NBA All-Star.

An attorney for Shafighi declined Tuesday to comment on the cross-complaint.

Los Angeles County prosecutors said there was insufficient evidence to bring assault charges against the 47-year-old Pippen.
