LA County Says Vanessa Bryant Went on ‘Fishing Expedition’ by Revealing Deputies’ Names

Vanessa Bryant was not a happy camper when it was revealed first responders were snapping pics of Kobe’s Helicopter crash scene. She’s suing the county to expose the people who decided to share the pics. Now Los Angeles County is reportedly accusing Vanessa Bryant of putting law enforcement officers at risk after Vanessa shared a 12-page document revealing the names of the deputies who took and shared photos of the deadly helicopter crash.

According to a report from TMZ, attorneys representing Los Angeles County said in court documents that Vanessa Bryant is going on a “fishing expedition that is taking first responders away from their jobs.”

Via TMZ:

“According to new legal docs, obtained by TMZ, attorneys for L.A. County say Kobe Bryant’s widow is aggressively conducting a “fishing expedition that is taking first responders away from their jobs.” The County is referring to the fact Vanessa posted the names of 4 deputies who allegedly took pics of remains.

In the docs, L.A. County attorneys say Vanessa is going too far with a “straightforward case” … and her social media posts are exposing the deputies to threats.”


Vanessa Bryant shared screenshots of a court document on her Instagram page that revealed the names of the deputies accused of sharing photos of the deadly Jan. 2020 crash that killed her husband Kobe, the couple’s daughter Gianna and seven others.

Vanessa has every right to be furious. According to reports, one deputy took between 25 to 100 photos of the crash scene. These guys put themselves at risk when they decided to take pictures of a tragedy.

Vanessa Bryant’s post on Instagram remains online to this day.
