Photog: Axl Rose Punched Me in the Head

12/11/2009 2:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

A paparazzo claims he has footage of Axl Rose punching him in the head during a scuffle at LAX Wednesday night.

According to the photog, Rose arrived to the airport with a woman in tow. As they were walking in, we're told the woman got into a confrontation with a couple of paparazzi trying to take her photo.

The photog, an employee of the National Photo Group, tells TMZ Rose saw the woman scuffling with the photogs and instantly started throwing punches.

The paparazzo claims the whole thing was caught on tape -- though we haven't seen it yet.

We're told several members of Axl's entourage dragged the singer away from the fight and ushered him through airport security. We're told no cops -- not even airport security -- got involved.

It seems as tho Axl was deffending someone who wasn't in a possition to defend themself. Good for him. It's a shame really that because of celebrity status, ya have to become a target. If that happened in a bar, with no fame attatched to Axl....He would have been thanked and escorted to the VIP room with a comp tab. Some photographers these days think they can get away with just about anything without facing up to the results. Maybe now, that photographer will think about his actions before he steps over any boundries.
