Police investigate Jesse James over paparazzo incident in Long Beach


It hasn't been a good day for Jesse James.

James has been dogged by reports that he cheated on wife Sandra Bullock. Today, US magazine posted a photo from before he married the Oscar winner showing James appearing to pose as Adolf Hitler. And now, KTLA News reports that a paparazzo said he was attacked by James outside his West Coast Choppers shop in Long Beach.

Celebrity photographer Ulises Rios said the confrontation happened March 25 when he was in his vehicle on Anaheim Boulevard near West Coast Choppers. The Long Beach Police Department is investigating the incident but declined to comment. James could not be reached for comment.

The paparazzi don't count as victims...They provoke everything that occurs...

The first question in the investigation should be to determine if Jesse was armed with a camera during the confrontation. If the answer is yes, then there is no crime; Jesse was acting as a paparazzo.

deport him

Yeah...I can tell you were really scared. That is why you kept filing and that is why you didn't roll your window up and that is why you didn't drive away from the situation. Get a life bro. It wasn't right what he did...but you basically egged him on not to mention the only reason you did it was for greed and money.

Paparazzi are a danger to all who live in Los Angeles. They flaunt their "1st Amendment rights" and hinder the rest of us who just want to go about our business.
