TMZ Gets Jacked -- Camera Thief Busted on Tape

2/12/2010 10:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

This footage is frickin' insane!!!

Stolen camera: Click to watch
Some dude with a pair of brass cojones pulled a classic snatch-and-grab on a TMZ camera Thursday -- and it all went down right in front of an L.A. courthouse!!!

Our camera guy was shooting Dennis Hopper's lawyer when some crook snuck up from behind and yanked the camera right out of our guy's hand while the camera was rolling.

The camera recorded the whole thing as the scumbag went sprinting through a parking lot ... and ultimately ran right into another TMZ cameraman.

The perp panicked and put down the camera but continued to book it down the street on foot until he was long gone.

The whole thing was insane -- but if you recognize ol' Shifty Stickyfingers over there, call the police, stat.

LOL The lawyer just stood there like a moron while it was happening instead of doing SOMETHING (yelling, grabbing the skinny dude, tripping him, etc).

That dude was stupid too, if I stole something and ran that far, I'll be damned if I'd drop it.

Good motivation for getting a real job instead of worshipping morons and shoving cameras in their face. I'm all for these little ass munchers getting the occassional assault or beat down so they're reminded of what groveling dirt bags they are.

"continued to book it down the street on foot" Did some brain-dead moron write that line. Is that some sort of strange English speak? How does anything/anyone book down the street?
