Travis Barker Video -- You Gotta See This

2/22/2010 10:37 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained crazy video of Travis Barker and his friends threatening paparazzi outside a Calabasas restaurant -- spitting at the photogs, hitting the camera and, allegedly, slashing a photog's tires.

In the video, Travis starts out by screaming, "Where's your homeboy?" As we first reported, Travis got into it with a photographer on his way into the restaurant -- but neither of the two photogs in the video are that guy.

The photogs claim one of their phones was stolen. When one of the photogs confronts Travis' friends about the phone, a guy can be heard saying, "F**king snitch fa**ot motherf**ker, no one has your gay ass phone."

After a few more minutes of arguing, and the arrival of cops, a photog noticed his tires were slashed.

The photogs told cops they did not want to press charges. No arrests were made, but a vandalism report was taken.

UPDATE: You can read Travis' response to the incident on his Twitter page, saying in part, "Paparazzi cried like young girls when it was no longer three of them against me and my kids. Didn't they remember threatening me an hour ago? What happened to the tough guys with the cameras? It was gonna be a fair fight."

I stand behind Barker, photogs are highly intrusive and can be exceptionally pushy. If an individual says "no," it should be respected.

I think this video is completely one-sided and doesn't show the true and complete story. Travis Barker was obviously very upset from the moment he saw these two paps and there is a bigger story as far as what events happened before he went into the restaraunt. These guys took advantage of knowing when the camera was rolling and what to say. I'm sure their attitude would have been different if they thought the camera wasn't rolling. It's not right to spit at people and slash their tires but there is only so much someone can take especially with the kids involved. Travis Barker has had a very rough last couple of years between his plane crash and the death of one of his best friends. Can the paps just give him some alone time with his Family? It's not like he was out at a club vying for attention. My main concern is with his kids because it is definately not ok to act that way in front of them but seeing as a nanny or someone took them away, you would hope they weren't able to see what was going on. Bottom line is the paps brought it on themselves.

Travis is in soooooooooo much trouble for going to breakfast with
that black female. His ex is flipping out right now! He had stinky,
monkey sex last night and he takes it out for something to eat
in the morning and got caught on tape that is why he is so pissed!

I'm not sure who Travis Barker is, but that was the most entertaining 8:12 I've seen in a long time. Kudos to him for fu*king up a couple of puss "photographers".

You jagoffs were fu*king with him while he had his kids. You deserved a really good beatdown, maybe next time. Cowards!

I'm on the side of Travis Barker, the pap was following him and HIS CHILDREN then after Travis challenged him before they went into the resturant the guys asked him "what was he gonna do", instead of the guys leaving he stayed there in the parking lot on purpose waiting for travis.
Travis has survived a plane crash, the lost of his friend DJ AM and having a kinda crazy wife... umm i fell for travis, plus the way he was acting being all manly and protecting his family is really sexy. I loved travis b4 but now I really love him

Those guys deserved everything they got. They were taking photos of him and his family. In particular his children. If you want to catch the man on a night out with friends so be it. But him and his family out for lunch or whatever, they deserved everything you got and more. They clearly provoked him, they were sitting in the car and knew it was going to be a problem to start with because they were trying to take the photos secretly. They were likely hoping for an altercation because it makes juicier news. That's how you all work. Boring if someone comes out of a restaurant smiles and gets into their car... but if you get into a fight that sells. Papparazzi are maggots.
There is no evidence of anything on that video other than Travis getting angry and having his friends force the dirtbags to back off.
