Jude Law-Breaker? Actor Arrested for Alleged Attack

9/5/2007 9:48 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Actor Jude Law turned himself in to London police Tuesday after allegedly beating the crap out of a paparazzo outside of the star's home.

A police spokesman wouldn't identify Law by name, but confirmed, "A 34-year-old man from Maida Vale was arrested yesterday on suspicion of actual bodily harm after voluntarily attending a London police station." Law is both 34-years-old and lives in Maida Vale -- a swanky London neighborhood. Law was snapped leaving his home -- smiling -- shortly after the alleged incident.

According to a published report, the battered photog says Law went nuts even though he wasn't shooting at the time, accusing the snapper of being a pedophile that only wanted to shoot Jude's children.
Police say the "34-year-old" was released on bail. A court date was set for sometime in October.

Last year, cameras caught Law lashing out at photogs in Los Angeles, telling them, "You don't film my f**king children" and threatening, "I'll have you up for pedophilia!"

Calls to Law's reps have not yet been returned.

I don't blame Jude Law. Why do these papparazzi stalk the celebrities homes? Celebrities deserve some semblence of privacy while in their own home and if some jerkoff was outside my home flashing away, I would punch him out too.

Yeah, the papparazzi are part of the job when you become an actor- but geez, leave the kids out of it. It's sick when you see them taking picture after picture of their kids.

Fooling around with a nanny again?

if paparazzi would stalk me everywhere i go and take photos of my children i would want to kill them. there are no laws to protect celebrities from these vultures. they were partially responsible for diana's death....jude has had paps up to his neck. he can't go for a cup of coffee without them on top of him. if he got this angry you can bet that pap was all over his kids.

Sharing with us their gift of talent does not entitle ANY of us (including papparazi) to CONSTANTLY infringe upon the personal lives of celebrities.

Why does Ms. Kris care about who Jude law sleeps with? What he does behind his bedroom doors is no business of anyones. As far as his being an adulterer, wasn't it his ex-wife's ectasy that his young daughter injested? wasn't it his ex-wife who went nuts? Don't pass judgment on the man. No one has the right to stand outside anyone's house and take pictures.

Well said regwalk1 (12). I can remember a time (and not so long ago) when the children of actors were out of bounds - we simply never saw photos of them unless they were photographed with their parents for a photoshot. The situation now is pure madness and quite unjustified. Celebrities don't "deserve" this because they are celebrities and the only thing that should interest us is their talent and skill as actors.
