LAPD Brass to Cops: You Aren't the Paparazzi!

1/15/2008 12:39 AM PST
TMZ has learned that a message was sent down loud and clear today to LAPD cops working the Britney court beat -- no photos allowed!

Law enforcement sources confirm to TMZ that an order came down to officers at the courthouse today, mandating that no cell phone photos or video of the popwreck or the ensuing chaos be taken. This command is a direct result, we're told, of reports that last week during Britney's meltdown at her home, several members of law enforcement were seen snapping pics.
