How do you Taser several million screaming teen-bordering-on-early-20s-aged girls surrounding a police precinct with torches while threatening to flood the block with their outraged tears? That’s a lot of Tasering. One Direction member Louis Tomlinson (not the one who left, not the blonde impish and not the more popular one with the hair) allegedly yanked a photographer to the ground by his legs at LAX last night.
TMZ reported on this and his subsequent citizens arrest.
We’re told the 25-year-old singer was with his girlfriend and the photog was too close for Louis’ comfort, so he allegedly pulled the photog to the floor by his legs. The photog fell backwards and struck his back and head on the floor.
Yanked to the ground by his legs? That’s a new one. Points for originality, Lou. Most of these dudes just fist the camera.
It was apparently a hilarious shitshow because Louis’ girlfriend, model Eleanor Calder, 24, did her part by allegedly getting in a catfight with a chick who was supposedly recording everything.
It didn’t end there. A female witness started recording Louis’ GF as she tried to leave. The 2 women allegedly then got into a physical altercation.
Chaos at the luggage carousel! TMZ says that Louis was subjected to a citizen’s arrest by the photographer. I guess his injuries weren’t too serious that he couldn’t sit on a One Directioner. (There’s plenty of 1D fans reading this that are now jealous as hell of the parasite with the camera.) The cops showed up, arrested Louis, and he was booked on a simple battery charge. It’s not clear whether or not his gal pal got pinched by the cops as well.
Louis’ camp says that way more people were involved than were first reported. A veritable WWE match went down!
Louis’ team tells TMZ, “The paparazzi provoked and caused the altercation that occurred with louis. It’s not the first time that a paparazzi has created an altercation with a celebrity. While the altercation was going on with the paparazzi, three other individuals were attacking his girlfriend during this incident and he came to her defense.”
If the chick with the camera phone’s name rhymes with He-ana Mungworth, then there’s some boy band hater fuckery abounding and 1D’s fans need to finance an independent investigation into this. This might be a bitter baby mama frame-up job!
