Scottie Pippen has just been interviewed by police in connection with his alleged fight with an autograph seeker in Malibu last night, TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us, Pippen contacted authorities in Malibu moments ago. We're told police decided against arresting Pippen after speaking with him. The investigation is ongoing.

We had previously been told by law enforcement officials that Pippen had been arrested. That was not the case.

TMZ broke the story ... Pippen allegedly brutalized an autograph seeker outside Nobu restaurant Sunday night.  The man was knocked out after Pippen allegedly punched him in the face and kicked him repeatedly.

Pippen left the scene.  As for the victim ... he was taken to a hospital with serious injuries, including broken teeth and a swollen mouth.  He also suffered injuries to his head and back.

Pippen was subsequently named as a suspect for a felony charge of assault with intent to commit great bodily injury.

Are Scottie Pippen and people like Kanye West over doing it with the Paparazzi? It's funny how celebrities fight to be on camera before they're famous. Then after they get to the top they don't want media attention, at least until they're trying to sell something to the public. Go figure... DJ BOOGIEMAN of MIX MASTERS

People are saying the autograph seeker must have provoked him. It's called being the bigger man, taking some deep breaths and WALKING AWAY. I hope this guy sues for millions and wins.

What is wrong with these people? Just because you can play basketball, it doesn't give you the right to assault people. Get over yourself, Scottie
