Kobe Bryant allegedly injured a man's wrist at St. Therese of Carmel Church in San Diego on Sunday over possible cellphone-camera photos of the Bryant family, reports CBS Los Angeles.

Bryant saw a man who seemed to be taking photos of Bryant and his wife, Vanessa. Bryant confronted the man and grabbed his phone from his hand, but the Laker did not find any pictures, reports the LA Times. Bryant then returned the phone and left the service early.

The alleged victim was treated at a local hospital for a minor wrist sprain. The man, who is not named, "is now considering suing Bryant for hurting his wrist," reports Ball Don't Lie.

The San Diego police department is questioning witnesses.

Kobe Bryant has become an even hotter commodity with the NBA lockout in full force. Bryant was offered a deal with Turkish Besiktas (which Fox Sports reports was rejected for being too low), as well as $1.5 million per month to play in China.
