Sean Penn Sued

Photog Claims Death Threat

4/5/2010 3:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0405_seanpenn_ex_2Sean Penn threatened to kill a paparazzo if he ever ran into him again ... this according to a new lawsuit filed by the photog.

Jordan Dawes alleges he was filming a documentary about paparazzi last October in Brentwood, CA when Penn suddenly began "kicking and punching" him.

In the suit, filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Dawes says Penn broke his camera and then said "the next time I see you, you will be in a box."

As we first reported, Dawes said he had to have knee surgery ... the result of the alleged attack.

Penn was charged with criminal battery and vandalism over the incident back in February. That case is pending.

The man is an attention whore. But he hates paps. He's a commie cuddler. And a flat out liar about his humanitarian efforts. In other words, he's an a$$hole.

I don't blame Sean Penn for wanting to kick their butts.
But there is a legal line, and a way to handle things.
Gated neighborhoods,.......exclusive locations way off the beaten path, properties held by blind entities and keeping a very low profile. Live abroad. Or just whip thir ass and pay the fine!!

Sean Penn is a complete loser and a traitor to his country and the people of Venezuala. I hope he gets thrown in jail. Better yet I hope the next time he visits his best buddy Chavez he gets thrown into their prison. That would rule.

Sean needs to make this photog into a millionaire. Sean must have seen a lot of Jeff Spicoli in the photog, and now it's time for Sean to pay up. - I viewed the tape of the attack where Sean passed a black photog, and went after this white photog where he knew he could get away with the attack, and not turn it into a race case. - That's pretty small to attact a soft target just like your self. Pay the Photog whatever he wants.

Penn is a scum bag! Anything bad or negative that happens to him ih his fault...its called Karma! He deserves to be hounded and pestered and irritated. If he doesn't like it he should get the hell out of the USA!! He hates this country anyway. Hugo can have him. POS!!!

Sean is a mean and evil man!!! He should join his BFF Hugo Chavez in Venezuela to run his country. He is an anti-American Ahole.I'm glad that Robin Wright divorced him and saw what a jerk he really is.

If Penn comes out kick and screaming like a little bitch, and hits the camera man first. What stops the
pap from putting down his camera and kicking his ass?

This pap should sue Sean Pen for lots of $$$$$, make Penn pay millions.. you know he has the cash. Forget the criminal trial.. go for civil trial! There is my advice.
