Jesse James' Ex -- Questioned in Liquid Assault

10/21/2010 3:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Cops just swarmed in on Jesse James' ex-wife Janine Lindemulder after she unloaded on a paparazzo ... outside of the courthouse in Orange County.

It all went down as Janine was entering court for a child custody hearing -- as several photogs followed her and snapped pics.

But it all came to a violent head once Janine got into an elevator -- and one photog got too close. Janine -- who was holding a warm drink in her hand -- swung at the photog, dousing him in liquid .. and sending him reeling backwards into a wall.

O.C. Sheriff's deputies moved in -- and are currently questioning Janine about the incident. The photog is on the way to the hospital.

I did not realize that a police officer was present for this. Why didn't he intervene when this was clearly a pressure cooker situation. All he had to do was walk BESIDE her, act as a buffer, espeically on the elevator when she told the brut to 'Back the F off'

I swear someone's gonna get killed one day and then laws will be passed requiring paparazi to maintain a certain distance. It's getting a little out of control when they're up your buttocks taunting you. Don't even get me started on how they drive when they're chasing their mark

1. looked like she threw an Iced Coffee at him
2. She repeatedly asked photogs to back up, respectfully & nicely at first
3. cops at the scene also warned photogs to back off
4. The photog stumbled over his own feet and fell because he was clumsy
5. his added "GIRTH" only compounded the situation. His comments about a sharp pain in his spine- Really?? from you basically ROLLING backwards? Whats next will he claim some one tried to suffocate him if he loses his breath chasing a car down a street?

That cup had a drink with ice in it, the ice was on the floor, and you could hear it coming out of the glass. I am not sure what hot drink has ice, there was no sleeve on the cup to indicate it was hot.

That's AWESOME. Great acting by fatso really. I mean that drink must have weighed what, 500-60...0 lbs to throw him back like that. I don't like Janine, she's a nut BUT come on. If anything police should be going after that guy. Imagine if a regular citizen was heading to court and got in the elevator at the same time as Janine what they would be put through by these jerks for not reason.

You ARE ALL here because you seek out celeb news, videos and pics but you are so damn ugly about those who gather it FOR YOU. Buy a clue. It's because you like celeb news that he is there getting assaulted. She was NOT threatened and he wasn't even that close to her. She's clearly using and on something. Erratic behavior and rage. She is a drug addict for sure.

Most papz have on tact they just jump in celebrities faces and ask idiotic questions to get a reaction, they are basically trying to create a demand for a photo. There is at least one photog on TMZ that actually is nice and actually has a rapport with some celebs AND keeps his distance.

#45 Gene:

You should not have called him a fat ass, you're right. You should have called him what he is; an aggressive, ignorant, bottom-feeding pap who's a lard bucket drama queen.

Good for her,and if he wasn't so obese he wouldn't have fallen or hurt himself like that, she can't be blamed for him being so fat

The Paps once again provoke celebs and who is the one that is going to get punished? The celeb of course. The paps instigate and provoke celebrities all the time, then get mad when they fight back. This is seriously an injustice and I hope somebody will put an end to this one day.

Oh the thrill and the laugh you all get by watching this man get scolding hot coffee thrown in his face. Such incredibly nice humans. They want to read and look at celeb news all day long but hate the people who actually provide it. What sick humans. You can't have this both ways.

Her drink had ice in it, so I doubt it was hot. Additionally, the space invader wasn't screaming from being burned.
