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.

Freedom of the press is where democracy begins but I don't believe it was ever intended to cover lunatics running around with cameras, tresspassing, peering into people's homes and cars, hiding in the bushes with telephoto lenses and in many cases quit literally stalking people. Society has a knack for pushing issues until they hit a brick wall and that is where the paparazzi are headed. At some point their shenanigins are going to force the laws to be changed. I love that TMZ filmed the guy fleeing the scene like a bank robber in a getaway car.

I like going to hotels to get away from my apartment/house... because I can make a mess, live in luxury and not WORRY ABOUT IT!
You should try to relax sometime at a hotel, it's really worth it, and plus they usually have wonderful spas too!
