Former NBA star Scottie Pippen was questioned for about an hour Monday by Los Angeles County sheriffs after the ex-Dream Teamer was accused of an assault outside a Malibu restaurant Sunday night.

But he was not booked or arrested, contrary to reports by some media.

“Our detectives are not going to book and arrest Mr. Pippen,” said L.A. County Sheriff’s Department Capt. Pat Davoren. “He came in and was very cooperative and answered a lot of questions. Our detectives have to do further investigating, mainly talking to other witnesses.”

Pippen, 47, arrived at the Malibu/Lost Hills sheriff’s station early Monday afternoon, accompanied by celebrity defense attorney Mark Geragos.
