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."

Travis and his boys acted like a bunch of punks. Pics are the price of being famous, these guys need to grow up. The paps didn't do anything wrong in this case.

Travis's kids should be off limits.

Who cares if he put them on television for profit.

Travis and his gang went after the paps sitting in the car, they kept asking here your friend is as thats the pap that said "hi travis why you speading".

Tmz doesn't have the video were Travis told the pap he as looking for to come back when he (travis) doesn't have his kid. Travis then ent and attacked the first pap that he seen. And that was the paps in the car.

Travis should not be acting this way in front of his child.. And what he did borders on felony assualt. Officials should be looking at the tape and pressing charges rather the paps want them to or not.

And CPS should be called because Travis shouldn't be doing this in front of his child. No excuses!!!!

Shanna ought to show this video to her attorney. Travis had the kids see all of this AND, she'd better watch out what kind of thugs Travis is inviting to Sunday lunch with the kids as well. The dude in the yellow tshirt is obviously a MAJOR thug. Does she want him around her kids? I surely wouldn't!

the papz in the scuffle work for x17.
x17 is the worst paparazzi agency in town.
ruthless and everyone knows they hire ex-convicts, drug dealers and criminals to chase, stalk and harass celebrities.
i hope travis meets those papz again and gives them a beating they will never forget.

In response to JLS...Shut the hell up and get a life. We know that this is a trashy website that needs to be abolished. You contribute in no way to society.

The black chick started it by pointing at the cameraman. Barker and his posse should be arrested. They acted without any provocation from these two guys. Charges should have been filed for the phone and tires. No excuses.

The pap said hi Travis why you speeding? The travis says come back in a hour when I don't have my kid so i can kick your fing ass.A hour later Travis then went and attacked the first pap that he seen. And that was the paps in the car.

The authorities & Shanna should examine the tape carefully...

The tape may seem benign... but in reality it was a mini-crime spree by Travis & his tatted-up posse.

Possible Charges under California Law;

1.Felony Assault (pushing camera-man)
2.Battery (pushing camera-man & hitting camera) ,
3.Criminal Mischief (aggravated assault + threats) ,
4.Trespass to Chattel (phone, camera, tires) ,
5.Conversion (phone, tires)
6.Destruction of Property (phone, camera, tires).

So, just how much merciless hounding do celebs have to tolerate before they fight back???

These paparazzi must be legislated to respect peoples space and privacy OR they can face the consequences of being hurt or attacked.

I support fully any celeb who attacks to preserve his/her space and privacy
