Man arrested for reportedly digging Kobe Bryant's grave [Photo]
According to reports, the unidentified man was arrested by the police in the process.
Kobe Bryant and his daughter, Gigi died in a helicopter crash back in January 2020.
According to MTO News, the man snuck onto the private gravesite with tools and began digging.
Police say that the man peeled back the grass and began digging - and he dug fairly deep into the ground.
However, another news source, USA Today, disputes that this is Kobe’s gravesite.
MTO obtained exclusive images showing police putting the man in handcuffs and taking photos of the crime scene.
The unidentified male had been seen wearing knee pads, and carrying equipment that he used to dig through the area where he believed Kobe and Gianna had been laid to rest.
The 41-year-old former Los Angeles Lakers basketball star died alongside his daughter and six other persons on Jan 26, 2020.
TMZ was the first to report his death. In their report, they revealed that Bryant and his daughter with traveling with four other people in his private helicopter when it crashed, killing everyone on board.
Officials with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department responded to reports of the crash near Las Virgenes Rd and Willow Glen St in Calabasas at around 10 am after a fire broke out.
Kobe was survived by a wife, Vanessa Laine Bryant, three daughters, and aged parents.
