Scottie Pippen
is officially a suspect in a felony assault with a deadly weapon investigation ... after allegedly knocking a man out in Malibu last night.

TMZ broke the story ... 47-year-old Pippen was at Nobu when he got into a fight with a man outside the restaurant, and allegedly knocked him out cold with a punch to the face.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department tells us ... Pippen has since been named as a suspect in a report for assault with a deadly weapon -- the deadly weapon being his shoes. We're told Pippen repeatedly kicked the 50-something-year-old victim when he was down.

As one source put it, "He beat the f*** out of him."

According to witnesses, the fight started after the alleged victim approached Pippen for an autograph. We're told Pippen said no, and something happened to set off the fight.

A family member of the alleged victim tells us, he was released from the hospital this morning with broken teeth, a swollen mouth, as well as back and head injuries.

Pippen's attorney had no comment.

FYI: Pippen was on the original Olympic Dream Team in '92 and retired as the Chicago Bulls' 2nd all-time leader in points, assists, and steals.

Pippen's face looks like one of the stone figures on Easter Island used to scare off evil spirits.

It is beginning to look as if steroids are to blame since there is SO much ridiculous violence with athletes! I know that their ugly 'entitlement' issues are also very much a part of it, but that just makes you an a$$, the violence comes from someplace!

Why isn't he in jail? I can't belie how much favouritism cops show celebrities. Anyone one else, jail right then and then bail. I wonder what it took to get these cops to let them go no charges

Surprised you dumbasses are not questioning the motive behind Pippen striking the guy and just assume he is a "savage animal". Gets your facts straight before making judgements, idiots.
