Paparazzo: Brit's Man Gave Me a Beat Down!

8/1/2007 7:27 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A photographer says Britney Spears' bodyguard attacked and beat him "without any provocation" outside the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas on July 26 -- and he has the injuries to prove it!

In a press release issued by lawyers for Flynet photographer Andrew Deetz, the photog alleges Spears' bodyguard, Julio "J.C." Camera, unleashed "a barrage of punches and kicks to the head and body." Deetz also claims Britney had to be to be stopped by hotel security from attacking him as well. He says she threw a baby bottle at him and yelled, "I am going to kill you! I am going to f***ing kill you!" He added that she shouted that he should get a restraining order against her because if she didn't kill him, she would hire someone that would! Like who, K-Fed?

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police were called and J.C. was issued a citation for misdemeanor battery.

Deetz, who maintains he always kept a safe distance of approximately 30-50 feet while photographing Spears, says the attack caused him "multiple bruises to his face and head as well as injuries to his brain, neck and other parts of his body." He claims he continues to receive treatment for his injuries.

I really do hate people who lack education. Britney HAS already been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and where these idiots are coming up with this nonsense of she will be dead within a year and needs to change her ways are obviously a bunch of uneducated idiots who know nothing about her. She has done alot of changing , she suffered a breakdown a few years and has got help for it and is now on medication for being bipolar. She does not use or drugs nor does she go out and party much, she does not even drink anymore.

Berkeley I would love to know where you are getting all your false facts info from, she is allowed to take her kids anywhere she wants as long as it is okay with her freeloading ex just as he has to have her permission to take the kids to another state/country

I love it when bodyguards beat up paparazzi! They all should be beaten up shouldn't they? Just like stars shouldn't complain if they live in L.A. and have their picture taken. It works both ways.
