Kobe was reportedly in the St. Therese of Carmel Church in Carmel Valley this past Sunday when he allegedly grabbed the phone out of a man's hand.

According to KCBS-TV in Los Angeles -- which first reported the incident -- Kobe thought the man was using the phone to take pics of Kobe and his wife ... but did not find any photos on the phone.

The man claims his wrist was injured.

I attend the same church as the Bryants and have witnessed people pull out their cell phones during Mass and actually take pictures of them coming from communion. My family and I were shocked. I have four children and we are huge Laker fans but would never think of doing something Like this.

I think he needs anger management. He is always losing his temper. Grow up big baby, you are a celebrity deal with it.

You know Kobe's problem is he's in love with himself.
So the one them should get a hotel room and F$$k himself.

His wrist was probably already injured from whacking off to the little boys in the congregation, hence, no pics of Kobe and his wife. Doh!

He should be thankful he wasn't in the room alone with him or he might have had forceful "sex" wiuth him.

And thats the truth    

Um, dont you have to point the phone at a subject to take a picture? I think Kobe would known if this guy was taking a picture of him. When you are a celebrity, this comes with the territory Kobe. In exchange you get millions of dollars.

I hope the guy with the phone sues for a lot and wins, you don't get to touch someone else or their stuff just because you think they did something. You ask 1st.

Kobe chose pro basketball, fame and money which means he also chose all of the annoyances and inconveniences that come with that lifestyle. He should have just sucked it up and addressed with the church officials after service or get a thick skin.

He gets millions of dollars to play a sport, and smile in a paid advertisement. He doesn't get paid to sit in church with his family, and have someone take pictures of his family. Imagine if you and your daughter were in Whole Foods, and some idiot pulls out a camera phone and starts snapping away at your daughter?
