Pint-Sized Pap Grounded by Cop

12/22/2007 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

If there ever was concern about the pint-sized paparazzi being up past their bedtime -- worry no more!

Tiny photog Austin suited up to get some celebrity shots Thursday night outside of Goa, but was sent home to his Superman bedsheets by a cop who wouldn't budge on child labor laws.

Thank goodness they never sent Doogie Howser home mid-procedure!

I think that it is cool that this kid is doing this. Celebrities have posed for him when they would not pose for the nerve-wrecking adult paparazzi. This cop should be going after real criminals, like the rapists, pedophiles, and spousal abusers. I can't stand cops that are riding around going after the smallest of the small time issues when they could be chasing real criminals and they wonder why crime is up all over the US. This kid isn't hurting anbyody or anything this cop needs an attitude adjustment.

So glad I have class, intelligence, honesty, and respect. Get some! It couldn't hurt!

Finally. Thank goodness someone has some common sense.

Why would parents allow their children to be out so late. No parenting today, they're all too busy being thier friends.

Kudos to the police officer with the balls to send that kid home. There was nothing cute about that kid being out with his camera past curfew. Nor, that his parents/guardians violate California child labor laws by letting him hang out on the mean streets of celebrityland. Those paparazzi pepper their language with profane adult-language. That kid should not be exposed to that talk; adult paparazzi should not have to watch their mouth because a kid is amongst them. It isn't decent for a kid to photograph, for example, anything like the time Britney exposed her $&#+ for the paparazzi. It isn't decent for the kid to be exposed to drunk and drugged entertainers, pimps and prostitutes. This is a positive kick in the azz to people who lack parenting skills. Your kids need to be safely at home.

Give me a break! His parents are aware of what their son is doing because they drive him to the hotspots of LA. Child Labor Laws? Why can't he say it is a hobby? If he enjoys taking pictures then leave him alone! I think it is great that his parents support their child's interests. What is the big deal? Would you all rather have him working the late shift at McDonald's?

How interesting that TMZ doesn't say how old this child really is. Does he work for you, TMZ? Are you worried that you'll be hit with violations of child labor laws if his age becomes common knowledge?
