Months after NBA legend, Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna Bryant were laid to rest, a man has been arrested for digging up the gravesite reported to belong to the late basketball player and his daughter.
According to Dailymail, the gravesite in Newport Beach is where Kobe and Gigi were laid to rest.
However, last Friday, a man was arrested and placed in handcuffs after he allegedly tried to dig up the gravesite.
MTO reports that “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. ”
The publication has now released “exclusive images” showing police putting the man in handcuffs and taking photos of the crime scene.
The unidentified man 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.
“He appeared to focus his efforts on one particular corner of the area and what appeared to be rectangular cutting marks could be seen through the grass,” the publication adds
