Photog Brutally Attacked Outside ESPY Afterparty

7/12/2007 12:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Panic and violence erupted on the streets of Hollywood last night after a brutal late night attack left a celeb photographer unconscious and convulsing outside of an ESPY Awards after party.

The fight began after two random jerks decided to act as Rumer Willis' bodyguards as she made her way out of Skybar and then allegedly got violent with paparazzi. According to witnesses on scene, one of the men allegedly tripped a photographer who was attempting to take pix of the star. As the stunned shutterbug got up and tried to identify the culprit, we're told another friend of the wannabe-bodyguards grabbed the photog by the head and slammed him to the ground head first, knocking him out and causing convulsions.

TMZ cameras caught sound of the attack and the immediate aftermath. You see another photog got nuts on the evildoers with his fists. Cops arrived shortly after and the man who allegedly slammed the photog to the ground were arrested.

The snapper was rushed to a hospital, where he was treated for three cracked ribs, a possibly dislocated shoulder and a concussion.

Uh, Sorry, but I consder the photog the "evildoer". Sounds like people are sick of you creeps shoving cameras in their faces and invading their personal space 24/7. An the people questioning Rumer being a star? Well that's right, she is NOT a star and she ought to be able to walk down the street without cameras stuck in her face.

I'm not feeling any sympathy for the low-life photographer - these losers have chased people in the cars for God's sake and in the opinion of most, managed to kill Princess Diana with their stalking

Rumer is a complete "nobody", big deal she is Demi's daughter, she is a no talent hanger-on and is trying to ride the coat tails of anyone she comes into contact with. Body guards my ass! More like thugs! And what is this "little girl", all of 18 doing at a bar anyways!? Momma Demi where are you?? Some ideal parent you are.

Sometimes, you've just got to wonder about Paparazzi... they are vultures and ghouls trying to take embarrassing pictures of pathetic people who thrive on publicity. The entire scenerio is sick. As violent as this looks, I'm glad to see a pap get his ass kicked.

I agree with #13. Ya'll paparazzi need to boycott Rumor. We don't really care about her anyway. There are plenty of "celebrities" who can sell more copy.
