Paris Hilton knocked into a wall in a paparazzi scuffle

Reported by E! Online

A paparazzo who claims that he was knocked around in the scuffle involving Hilton and pal Brandon Davis last night exclusively tells E! News that he is seriously considering suing the heiress.

“It’s not my style, but honestly? I’m in a lot of pain,” says shutterbug Brian Barrera, who was on his way into his lawyer’s office in Beverly Hills when we caught up with him.

Of course, he wasn’t the only one caught up in the scrum.

Hilton was knocked into a wall as a pack of paps closed in on her—and at least one of them managed to capture her descent for posterity.

Barrera, meanwhile, says his neck and ears “really hurt,” and he’s weighing his legal options.

The incident, which occurred outside the new Hollywood club Bootsy Bellows, did not involve police.

Looks to me like he got too close to her and she yelled out “sir”.

Of course, the pap wants money. The usual setup.
If he sues, I hope she sues him right back.

But I do hope that Paris keeps bodyguards around from now on. Can’t be too careful nowadays.

It seams that she is trying to hide whatever she was smoking.
Even if he was too close to her, she is used to having paparazis around her, it doesn’t make sense that she would just start to try to grab his camera.

It doesn’t look like she’s smoking anything to me. I just think she’s having a personal (and angry sounding) phone conversation and didn’t want it being filmed. I don’t get why she did that though as she’s never had problems with the paparazzi being invasive before, and she could have just held off on the conversation til she got back to her car. The only thing I can think of is that it was really late and she tired/drunk, combined with how creepy that guy is?

She is securely walking around in very high heels and she certainly does NOT look drunk.

You can see she is talking on the phone, so why is the pap getting within arm’s length of her in the first place?

A person has the right to have their personal space respected, even a celebrity.

I don’t see her smoking aything, where do people get these ideas? She is just holding her phone.

You can see that she has something in her other hand, something white like a joint or something in the beggining of the video.
And by the way she is walking, she does look drunk or on something.
She does have a right to personal space, but not a right to just try and grab someone’s camera. She didn’t even ask him anything. lol

Now that you point it out I can see it. Looks like a cigarette to me. I hardly think she’s going to be smoking weed or something in a public nightclub, but if I recall she does occasionally roll her own tobacco.

We all know Paris loves the green. She wears marijuana socks and hangs out with Snoop Dogg. C’mon. But regardless of that, and regardless of whether she’s been drinking or not.. To me, she comes across as tired and in a bad mood and she’s walking to her car.. and then there’s this seedy guy lurking around with a camera saying “hey sexy Paris” you can see she’s startled. She stops. She just didn’t want to be filmed right then so she was like go away.. but in a physical way. And it went from there.

I need to give massive kudos to Paris. It was kind of cool to see Paris holding the guy the not letting him go. She’s a tough bitch.

You can hardly draw a conclusion from a video like that. It just doesn’t prove anything. All I see is that she got bothered by the paparazzo for some reason.

The pap looks combative in those pictures.
I would freak out too if some weirdo came too close to me while I’m on the phone in a parking garage.

I agree with admin.
People are jumping to conclusions and letting their imaginations run wild as usual.

LOL I just remembered that Nicky Hilton once took a guy down outside a waffle house in L.A.

It was real early in the morning and the guy was getting too close, trying to touch her.
So she flipped him on the ground.

Maybe Paris and Nicky took some self-defense classes.LOL.

We all love her in here, we all support her, but we also all know that she loves her green stuff, and clearly she has a cigarette or a joint or whatever in her other hand and she didn’t want the paparazzo to film her with that and she tried to stop him. that’s it. Let’s not be blind bcz we love her so much. It’s pretty understandable, if I’m smoking weed or whatever, I wouldn’t like people filming me, specially if I’m a celebrity…

The best thing about this story, is the gorgeous pictures, of Paris in that cute blue dress.

There is no proof whatsoever that she was smoking weed. People with their endless assumptions are not dealing in facts.
