Britney Bodyguard Thumps Photog

7/27/2007 1:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

UPDATE: According to a press release issued by the Las Vegas P.D. and obtained by TMZ, "Britney also filed a crime report on behalf of her minor child." In the report, Britney claims the photog "battered both Mr. Camera and Ms. Spears' child, who was at that time being held by the security officer."

The Wynn also issued a release stating Spears "elected to leave the resort on Thursday afternoon, July 26, of her own accord." The had no comment beyond that.

Las Vegas police cited Britney's bodyguard last night in Las Vegas, for putting the smackdown on a photographer from Flynet agency.

The bodyguard, Julio Camera, nicknamed J.C., allegedly attacked the photog from behind after the lensman accidentally bumped Brit's older son, Sean. J.C. is accused of laying the beating on him while he was on the ground, as Wynn Hotel personnel rushed to pull the overzealous hire-a-thug off the lensman.

The photog was treated for his injuries and charges will likely be filed.

I think the photographers need to keep their distance, there is NO NEED to get so close to anyone famous, remember Princess Di? With a telephoto lens, you can zoom right up someones nose! The Paps are soliciting a response from Brittney and those around her. Can you imagine someone taking pictures of your every move?

I don't know how any of the celebrities put up with those PEOPLE and CAMERAS in their faces EVERY WHERE THEY GO, YELLING QUESTIONS AND COMMENTS AT THEM! I couldn't stand it, I don't know how ANY of them do! And no matter WHERE she has HER KIDS NO ONE HAS THE RIGHT TO JEAPORDIZE THEIR SAFETY, just BUMPING him? Let someone just BUMP your kid and see how you feel and what you would do!

Good .. they got what they deserved. Maybe the people relentlessly pursuing her will back off. Now if only the people who keep writing these stories could receive the beat down they deserve it would be great. Are you all trying to drive her to suicide? Nastiest campaign against someone I've seen since the media killed Princess Diana.

To think that Britney should NOT have been in las vegas with the kids in the first place, because by doing so she violated her custody agreement.
