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.

You know what? These paparazzi deserve what they get. I have no sympathy for them. Look at what they did to Princess Diana 10 yrs ago. They left her sons without a mother. Her future grandchildren will never get to find out how wonderful she was. Too bad that photographer didn't die.

This is truly an gruesome display and I also agree with the other posters who say to boycott Rumor Willis. She should not get another second of face time in these magazines or on these celebrity gossip sites. What exactly has she done anyway?

I hope the guy gets some serious time for this heinous act and I'm just sad that not more of the photographers took up for the one who was hurt. He was doing his job. I agree that the paparazzi crosses the line too much, but they certainly don't deserve this kind of brutality.
