8/16/2011 6:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0816_kobe_bryant_bn_tmzSan Diego police want to talk to Kobe Byrant about the alleged tussle he had with another man in church ... over a cell phone picture.

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.

Amazing how the over the top ego can make a fool of one.
I'm sure Bryant thinks he is the center of the universe and how on earth could anyone have a cell phone or a camera in their hand or on their person that was not intended to take a picture of him & his wife - who, by the way, reminds me of a plastic blow up f-doll. Made up to the point of looking completely plastic. What clowns these mortals be.

Kobe has that same ridiculous look on his face whether he has had sex with a girl over the back of a chair in a hotel room while married or taking someones cell phone. It's the look of "Well I'm just a dumb wealthy jock, what do you expect from me".......He's hot wet mess and needs to realize that not that many people want his picture and certainly not at church. What a worthless piece of crap he is. Hope the guy sues the pants off of him!Q

There are no bigger hyocrites on the planet than church people. Congress can't even hold a candle to these nut jobs.

This just seems typical of something he is capable of. It also seems typical of something his wife is capable of...and I don't know much about her other than her nastiness that's been in the media, and her lack of involvement... in anything. Get educated! That is my wish for her. I'm just saying

I hope he pays this time for his behavior. High-paid atheletes get by with everything. As far as I am concerned, he is nobody and should be treated as such

coming form a big kobe fan i do think he was wrong as for the way he handled it but at the same time i feel his fustrarion being hassled 24/7 by people who don't know the limit i mean for god's sake he is in church to worship not to take pictrues as for the other dude just trying to get some money. But i still love you Kobe let thoe*****ers with no lives talk **** about you cause you still gonna be rich and famous and they still going to be behind a computer talking ****.
