"CSI" Jerkoff Wrangles Posse, Chases Injured Photog

7/18/2007 3:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

To get the full scope of Gary Dourdan's shocking, unprovoked attack against a TMZ photog, you must watch the entire 15-minute clip.


As we previously reported, the "CSI" star brutally attacks our guy, then speeds off on his Ducati. Apparently unaware that his camera is still recording, our photog captures Dourdan coming back for round two and recklessly chasing him around Hollywood.

Dourdan and his entourage, riding in a Town Car, chase the frightened photog as he begs passersby for help, ultimately flagging down a cab to get away from the mob.

UPDATE: CBS has issued the following statement about the incident, saying: The alleged incident has not affected production, as the show (CSI) is not currently in production. Rumors that he has been dropped from the show are absolutely false.

Someone with sense    

Are you kidding me? This was staged and utter nonsense. At no point in any of the "followup" video do you see anyone chasing this guy. It's all a stunt and a pathetic one at that.

Please, all those celebs cannot complain about getting filmed when they seek out locations to "hang out" that are chock full of paps. There are plenty of low-key clubs/hangouts around L.A. that don't have any photogs hanging out. They go to these places to get photographed. Get over yourselves. That photographer didn't deserve that and I hope that a-hole gets charged with assault.

You Photographers do get in peoples faces too much! Maybe this one will be a little bit more respectfull next time. But..............it sounds to me like this guy from CSI..WHOEVER HE IS?........should of backed off.no one deserves to be hit and charges should be brought against he by the cab driver and the photographer. This sound to me like thier lives were in danger and he was making terroristic threats.You can't go around chasing people and try to run them over. He sounds like he has very bad anger issues. But, of course the cops are his friends..I hope they press charges.

ahhhh,poor TMZ I say smack all the photogs!!! What gives you the right to envade someones privacy,family,kids or even when the take a dump. No sane person cares what stars to every single minute. Not to mention most of the photogs have criminal records. Ever hear of princess Di? Go gary go!!!!

Serously, while he might have taken things way too far- you guys are the worst, you hound celebrities and constantly push cameras up in there face and egg them on.
YOu guys get off on this stuff to make yourselves look like victims.

TMZ You act like you are a Class Act and did nothing to provoke it. BTW I bet you'll be up for a Pulitzer Prize with all the catchy titles. Grow up and take the pay back for all your stalking!

Oh Please    

Stay out of peoples faces and you wont' get your a$$ kicked. Funny how you have to run him down and call him a CSI Loser and all those silly little names. If he is so unimportant, then why try to photograph him??? Frankly I like him, he's got sexy eyes.

After getting a 5 minute curb level tour of LA, I saw a car drive by. Then nothing but audio. I'll wait until there is more proof that like, those guys, like, were to trying like, kill the photographer. Can noone in CA complete one sentence without like, saying, like?

Glad to see it......slimey photogs get their just desserts. Gary should sue TMZ for harassment since they take ownership of the obnoxious photographer.

People say Celebs who don't want to be hounded by papparazi shouldn't be celebs, well photogs who don't want their asses beat shouldn't photograph celebs. You intentionally provoke people then act all hurtwhen they beat your as. i wish they would all start beating the living crap out of you!!!!! Besides which the last 12 minutesd of this video are all fake!

know it all    

Gary Dirtface had no right to attack that videotographer. I am a CSI watcher, and he must do some primo acting 'cause his character is a very nice guy on the show. What an A$$HOLE!!! The camerman is just trying to earn a living. And what was up with the underarm hair he had glued to his face. He looked all strung-out and dirty. Wannabe star. I'll bet you he's nearly impossible to work with, and he'll never get ANYTHING but CSI work. The show will end and he'll never do anything else.... but maybe CRACK. He looks like a junkie. He looks like $HIT.
