Jamie Lynn Pap Pinched for Stalking

6/5/2008 9:33 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A celeb photog who's been snapping Jamie Lynn Spears and her baby daddy Casey Aldridge down South has gotten popped for stalking -- even though if this happened in LA or NYC, he'd just be one of the pap pack.

Edwin Merino was arrested yesterday on charges of stalking J-L and Casey in Liberty, Mississippi. He says he was at least a couple hundred feet away when he was shooting them, but cops still nabbed him at the gas station where he was shooting.

He posted bond and is skedded to appear in court next week.

Most of the worst ones should be charged with stalking.

I thought for someone to be found guilty of criminal stalking, they had to make a threat to the victim, and the victim had to believe they were in danger.

You want to be a celebrity? Then you have to agree to take ALL that goes along with that! Boo Hoo, the paps are stalking her. She shouldn't have chosen to be a role model, actress or knocked up at 16. Cry me a river. You don't want to be stalked, stay out of the public's eye and then there will be no appetite for your trailer trash azz.

Good. It's about time. If Britney hadn't been chased constantly by the pap, maybe she wouldn't have just about killed herself driving off a cliff.

The fame and money come with a price tag, you don't get that for nothing. Too bad if she doesn't like the paps following her. She (and her loser mother/family) chose that life style. Too late to be crying foul now.

All Spears should be neutered and spayed. Stop breeding!

Anoymous, she was in freakin Liberty, Mississippi- you can't get much further from the public eye than that! She's been trying to lay low and people still won't leave her alone. What else is she supposed to do? It's her life, and good thing she could care less about what some loser posts about her on TMZ.

Everyone seems to think that it is ok to invade people all the time when they are out in public. What is she suppose to do - stay inside her home with the curtains down? Come on, she might be a "star", but she should be able to go to the store or whatever without some piece of s--- pap in her face.

I agree it is about time, its one thing when someone avails themselves to the camera, its another when they are forced into it.

This child (yes she is still child) is NOT in the public eye! Jamie Lynn is in Liberty, MS and living in Kentwood, LA.............I have been thru both and it is FAR from the so called public eye! She is simply trying to live her life in a normal fashion. If the media outlets would STOP putting a price tag on a photo then maybe, these morons would stop taking her photo in these small out of the way places!

So what she's in Mississippi? Because it's not california, there should be a different set of rules? That's ridiculous. She was looked up to by teens everywhere, she was role model, on a hit tv show, and she allowed herself to get pregnant. Just because she went back "home" doesn't mean she's allowed to be normal now. She chose to be an actress, she chose to keep her baby. She can't be crying foul now becuase she doesn't like the paps following her. If she hadn't made herself a target, she wouldn't be harrassed. There is a price that goes along with that fame. She wants the money, she has to pay the price. How many 16 year olds are able to buy their own homes? She made a deal with the devil, too bad if she doesn't like the terms of the contract now. The minute she chose to be on a hit show, and got pregnant, she became fair game. I hold her to a higher level than britbrit because her entire family went through it with britney. They knew what to expect from the press. She still chose to play the game.

wtf    

There was a show on tv that said many of the paps have crimal records for stealing and some even for rape. Pretty scary to think these people are sitting outside young celebs homes at all hours to get pics with backgrounds like this.
