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.

I don't care what the victim said, Scotty Pippen should have simply "IGNORED HIM". Don't they have "SECURITY" at Nobu? He could have simply went back inside and exited out the rear door while their security was "DETAINING THE FOOL"!!! Why entertain "UNNECESSARY DRAMA" that can be "AVOIDED"!!! HE'S TOO DAMN OLD FOR THIS SORT OF CRAP!!!

Nobody here knows what really happened. Ppl are only quick to judge when it's a black person. I'm not famous but if someone wanting a autograph from me and I said no and he kept bugging me guess what will happen ? Smh at people's negative remarks because their only being made because he's black.

I don't think Scottie Pippen randomly K.O.'s autograph seekers, he never punched me out. I get the feeling the individual was refused several times and wouldn't take no for an answer.

Oooohhh. Scotty! Whatever money you have left over from your playing days you are going to lose. The victim was met at the hospital by the police and a team of salivating lawyers, who were so excited by the possibility of a big lawsuit, they all had sex together in a closet.

Is Sean Penn any diffferent ? He spent time in jail for beating the crap out of a paparazzi long before there was the Internent and cell phone cameras.

WTH was he thinking. I guess in this PC world we can't question a black demonstrating brutality. I see now the government has cited several company for doing criminal background checks because it is unfair to blacks. You voted for him!!!!!

When Scottie played in Portland years ago he was such a good guy and an incredible part of the community. That "autograph" seeker had to have really crossed the line. I just don't see Scottie going all Chris Brown on anyone unless provoked to the extreme.

The guy was taking tons if pictures while Pippin was trying to eat with his family, then scottie went to talk to the man and ask him to stop, and he continued to take pictured of scottie as he was walking towards him and while he was talking to him, then he had the nerve to asked for an autograph

Honestly i would have wanted to beat the **** out of him to
