Jay-Z Flips after Bodyguard Fights with Pap

Jay-Z's bodyguard decided to throw a camera tripod into the ocean last night -- after a paparazzo threw it at him -- and the whole incident was caught on tape.

It all went down in Croatia after Jay and Beyonce finished a romantic dinner by the sea. A scuffle between the hired muscle and the paps ensued -- and spilled over onto the pier -- culminating in water-logged tripod and a couple of middle fingers, courtesy of Jay and his protector.

FYI -- the video was edited out of order, so try to follow along.
