Jake G. Kicks Ass -- Ours!

1/29/2009 9:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Our photog got a kick out of Jake Gyllenhaal today outside court -- as in, Jake mule-kicked him in the leg!

Jake Gyllenhaal: Click to watch
Our cameraman was waiting for Jake to return from a scheduled lunch break from jury duty, when a frustrated Gyllenhaal walked into the door after pushing instead of pulling. We asked how he was doing ... wrong question ... Jake stomped down into our guy's shin.

Jake's now inside the courthouse, waiting to find out if he'll be selected on a jury that will hear -- get this -- a battery case.

UPDATE: 5:14 PM ET: Gyllenhaal was just excused from jury service in the battery case ... probably because he just committed one!

Looks like Jake wants to be photographed only when HE wants it--like hiolding hands and being love-dovey with that Little Mary Sunshine "beard" of his, Ms. Witherspoon. Of course, I have nothing but contempt for these damn papas; they ALL deserve to be kicked. Still, Jake can't have it both ways. Unless, of course, he beleves this latest "incident" adds to the heteroimage he's been trying to create. (Not that there's anything wrong with being gay.)

Disgusting    

The idiots who slam the paparazzi are hilarious. Why do you visit gossip sites, you keep them employed with every click. Stupid hypocrites.

That is no battery. That is self defense! Paps need to get a real job and stop stalking people. For God's sake this has got to stop.

Jake is a United States citizen, who was doing his civic duty. Idiots should know you don't need any sort of companion to do that.

He is conscientious enough to be there for our court system. No wonder he acted like ENOUGH IS ENOUGH, when he was harrassed, albeit subtly!

The paparazzi was WRONG, too bad Jake didn't spray him with pepper spray.
If that paparazzi or TMZ presses charges or sues Jake, that will be SO WRONG. You shouldnt STALK him. Period.
Who cares if he has jury duty? WTF is one guy wasting his whole day waiting for a shot of Jake?
Losers.

you really dont want to mess with anyone doing jury duty.

Criminals in lock up are treated better than prospective jurors.

There is no pain worse than being held hostage in a room with nothing to do for days

Well, except being locked in a room with herpy hilton............

The PAP sounds like a big MO. Or like the kid in the Charlie bit me video. "OW. Charlie. That hurt!"...

A man cannot even do his civic duty without the vultures swooping down on him. Paparazzi should be open targets--shoot them before they can shoot you. Where's Sara Palin and that moose gun when you need her?
