Papper Files

Police Report Against

Sean Penn

10/2/2009 9:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1002_sean_penn_ex-1Sean Penn went ballistic on a paparazzo this afternoon -- and we've learned the photog just filed a police report against the actor.

The cameraman -- Jordan Dawes (not a TMZ guy) -- is accusing Penn of battery after a confrontation near the Brentwood Country Mart in Los Angeles, where Sean had just eaten lunch.

Penn was seen kicking and hitting the photographer on a side-street multiple times before leaving.

Sean's rep had no comment.

Hahaha, is that photo supposed to be "evidence"? Those paps must be some cry babies. First off ..nobody is going to get into a serious fight with a bag of leftover food in their hand, get real. Second, he's not going to be grinning while trying to give an old fashion donkey-kick. Third, the pap is hardly defending himself in this so-called "confrontation" and lastly, there's nobody else even doing anything about said "battery".

Bunch of low-lifes.

Paps are bottom feeding leaches who make their living bothering people who are minding their own business, sorry no sympathy here. After what they did to Princess Di, both before and immediately after her fatal crash, I smile whenever I hear of one of these lowlife losers getting injured. It's just too bad Mr. Penn didn't aim a little higher. Bottom feeders shouldn't be allowed to reproduce.

Shawn Penn is a joke! He should be GRATEFUL to that guy. Nobody else cares what Sean Penn is up too. Yes, Paps can be a pain.But celebrities wouldn't make the money they do if not for paps & Fans. And I doubt this weinner has fans. And I agree he's a Friggin little shrimp. If I had the balls I would have beat his ASS! He's a HAS BEEN. OLD FART PENN.

You'd think an articulate, intelligent person like Penn would learn from his past "mistakes" and stop putting his hands and feet on people in anger.

Why is he so angry all the time? If I had his money, I'd still have a grin even if you put a camera up my skirt! Penn is angry for no reason. Spoiled brat angry. Even spoiled brat queen herself, Madonna, couldn't live with Penn's brand of brat.

That says a lot if Madonna can't handle your spoiled self.

Everyone says Papps are low life bottom feeders but the truth is that without these Papps NONE of the celebrities would be as popular as they are. These Papps are actually keeping the celebrities in the news which creates interest from the public which then creates the "want" of the public to go see their movies. If you think about it the Papps are actually making the celebrities more attractive in their own business. Yes it might be annoying at times but come on... it's free advertising for the celebrities. Think about how popular the celebrities of the past were. Not very compared to today's celeb's... who get more coverage because of Papps... it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that without the Papps... celebs would be a dying breed.

You know, just once I would like the "press" to ignore the "celebrity". Find another source of income. If you ignore these people they will make an idiot of them selves to get attention.
