Britney Ignites Hotel Beatdown -- Cops Called

10/2/2007 12:18 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Moments after Britney Spears arrived at the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills last night, a member of hotel security was knocked out -- allegedly by a trespassing paparazzo!

It was pure chaos outside the five star hotel last night, with panicked security chasing photogs off the property as Spears checked in.

TMZ shot video of a car leaving the scene at a high rate of speed, allegedly with the assault suspect inside.

It's just a matter of time before Drama Queen Britney does something else totally insane and gets thrown in jail. A good stay in the greybar hotel is exactly what she needs.

What are you all worried about? This happned in LA!

Hitting someone in the head is a just community service there. You get a lawyer, he gets you out on bail, you do a few hours in a room to yourself, then you feed the homeless once and you go on Larry King, and write a book or something (or have someone else write it for you) and make a million bucks. If you're lucky, you can sell the screenplay of your life.

It's hollywood, babe!

Jeez! Do I have to explain it to you?

Britney has quite a bit of "bad behavior" behind her but how these folks act outside a hotel that she happen to go into is NOT her fault and to twist the headlines to reflect so is just plan "bad behavior". She needs to be accountable for her actions and take responsibility but so does everyone else. I am not a fan of hers but I am a fan of human kindness, back off and give the girl some time to get herself in order. She is being haunted more than Princess Di and look what happen there. Don't feed into this madness, eliminated it and just give her space to get herself together in peace.

The only reason why she checked into a hotel yesterday was the fact that it was an easy photo op for the paps. It's no fun hiding in your house, having them take pictures of you through your fence! Not an easy access for them. SHE WANTS THIS. Where the hell is her mom?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To answer # 7 question, it's so they don't get another DUI. Plus, they have the correct change to afford it.

I have a question - - is TMZ a Paparazzi fan site? If so, I think I'm wasting my time. I don't give a flip if a photographer gets smacked down - I just like seeing celebs wreck their train. The paps aren't the focus of anyone's attention.
