He claims he had been dining with his family at the eatery while Shafighi took pictures of Pippen inside the resturant and then outside in the parking lot, too.Witnesses described Shafighi as being intoxicated before an argument ensued between the two individuals, eventually escalating into violence, and sending Shafighi to the hospital.
