Paps Sue Over 'Bachelor' Wedding Beat Down

3/8/2010 10:12 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Two paparazzi who were thrown out of "The Bachelor" wedding last month are suing the people behind it claiming battery, false imprisonment and negligence.

Eric Brogmus and Maximiliano Lopes claim Disney/ABC Television Group, Next Entertainment -- "The Bachelor" production company -- as well as the security company "breached their duty of reasonable conduct by attacking and detaining or authorizing the attack and detention" of both plaintiffs.

The two photogs were shooting the wedding of Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney when they were told by security to leave -- and then things got ugly.

*** And they damn well should. There was absolutely no reason for them to have been demeaned and manhandled like they were. Pitiful blatant abuse of limited authority. I'd sue for a bundle....emotional distress for sure on top of physical abuse. It was painful just to watch it happening.

"I hate BANKERS, they should all be shot!
If I happen to see on in public I'll just choke him put him to the ground and deliver him to the police!"
Now replace the word "banker" with "paparazzi" and this is what you sound like! moron. While carrying a 600 mm camera lens, you're still talking about personal space you idiot.
Why don't you ask yourself how come so many photographers knew about the time and location of this wedding and not you!! LOL
Do you think that maybe this ridiculous show needed to feel important and get enough attention?

Passing judgment on the paparazzi is very common these days, ten years ago i remember hearing similar comments about lawyers! I wonder who's gonna be next. Bankers? teachers? why not.

We groan about their behaviour, but the fotos they produce sell. I see a disconnect between what the public does(purchase the publication by the millions) and what they claim is proper.(tossing the photographers out on their ear) We can't have it both ways.

seeing blaming the paps and the "photogs" is pretty ironic considering they(YOU) fuel the reason why the photogs are doing what they do.

i.e. reading celebrity gossip websites.

If you people (including myself) did not exist, this would not be a problem.

Clearly you have no idea of the concept cause and effect.
