Paps Popped For Snooping On Spears

7/22/2008 9:34 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned two photographers were arrested last night for loitering outside Britney Spears's house in Hollywood.

We're told that police gave the paps "ample time" to move off the lot, which is considered city property, but wouldn't budge and were arrested.

The snappers made bail and were released.

Glad to hear it. Lock them up and throw away the key. Let her get well.

Good. They should be enforcing these laws more often. I enjoy reading celeb gossip as much as the next person, but the photographers are getting out of hand. I can read about Britney, or Lindsay without having twelve pictures of them scratching their noses. WOW THEY'RE JUST LIKE US, THEY SCRATCH THEMSELVES TOO!! THEY'RE JUST LIKE US, THEY DESERVE A LITTLE PRIVACY TOO. I realize they are public figures, but you have to draw the line somewhere. If the tables were turned, Mr. Levin, you probably wouldn't like it so much, to be pushed and pulled around, with twenty camera in your face, while you're just trying to get a latte.

So...am I the only one who sees something wrong with the paps "camping" outside a celebrity's home? And then ignoring deputies' requests to leave? And I'm paying the taxes for the cops to stand out in front of her home? Because paps don't have the common sense to not lurk outside private citizen's homes. Go to jail. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200. One month in jail sounds about right...

They should make a law, that a homeowner is allowed to shoot a pap if they come near their home at any time... It's a different story if she's out and about in cali but don't get close to their homes... Most of these paps are felons they don't even have a high school diploma..

That has to be one of the lowest jobs ever. The paps are basically hunters and hunting human beings should be illegal. Imagine your life consisting of running around taking pictures of other people living theirs. That's just pathetic. I think the celebrities should get together and pay a bunch of people to chase the paps around LA and shove cameras in their faces.

I'd say it's about time. Where were the cops a year ago when she needed them.

my, my, what truth dacoits you are    

About time. Maybe the cops should render the paps to, say, Jordan or Egypt, where they know how to and don't mind implementing instant justice on these intrusive, obtrusive interlopers.Maybe the paps could experience the other-worldly delights of waterboarding. Float, float on-if you can.

He's just another Idiot    

Paps are Stalkers. Isn't there a law against stalkers? They should all be thrown in jail. What deadbeat lowlife's Paps are. It will take one of them getting shot to stop their nasty, gold digging jobs. No, I guess they won't give up - they're too stupid. Aren't most of them illegal immigrants?

If her children were there then the paps are nothing more than predatory perverts. There should be a law that the paps cannot park themselves outside a celebrity's home where there are children with the intent on profiting by putting photos of them on the Internet or selling them to tabloids.

Tee hee hee. Still methinks the cops are a little slow.There were pics on another website yesterday of her standing on her own property smoking a cig & watching her boys. This site is always posting pics of her. They were really close up but it did'nt look like she knew they were there. Can't blame her for wanting to move somewhere with more privacy.
