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.

IMHO, the paps should be absolutely blocked from doing this sort of BS perp walk thing on celebs, particularly in court houses and such. They should be limited to stay off the property, and should not be allowed to stalk someone into the building.

Janine honestly did what any sane person would do faced with this level of invasion of their personal space. Was anything gained from following her into the building, and perhaps even trying to squeeze on to the elevator with her? It isn't journalism, it's just stupidity.

The paps are becoming more and more invasive, something really has to be done.

Call me as an expert witness. I can mathematically prove, based on Newtonian gravitational principles, that this lard-ass cannot stand up for more than a few seconds without tumbling over. Thank god the floor broke his fall.

He kinda deserved it. But that really didn't help her case any in getting her kid back or visitations or whatever.

It is so funny reading some of the comments talking about how they HATE the paparazzi and they need to get real jobs. This site's content is nothing BUT stuff from the paparazzi. So, if there were none, what would you all do during your day? lol

how many times does she have to tell the paparazzi to back off and leave her alone, then you have this overweight very dramatic photograher who basicaly stumbles over himself and makes it out more than it really is, GO BACK AND PLAY IS AGAIN and you will see he had plenty of clearance, he kept backing up on his own, and of course it's always back pain! these photographers who are looking for a quick dollar and any opportunity they can to cash in, the fat ass should have simply gave her, her privacy. obviously she wasnt going to speak so they tried to provoke someone,well i hope that warm liquid felt very good on your shirt..

Uh oh i am screwed    

WTF why do the photogs have more rights than the person they are harrassing? I hate this woman, but i have no doubt she felt threatened, Wouldn't you if you had this big guy cornering you?

There is a new breed of photogs, ones that push the celebs to the thier breaking point. Hmm sounds like it needs a catch phrase. How about "celebrit"cha-ching" No doubt this SOB will sue her.

Something needs to be done to protect the rights of the celebs. With the lenses they have in this day and age there is no need to shove the cameras in thier faces like that unless they are trying to agitate them.

The fat tub of lard should use his court winnings to go to Jenny Craig.

Like it or not, it's clearly assault. I don't get why the dude had to go to the hospital, though.

These guys probably have an unwritten rule that if they get attacked try to fake injury as much as possible in hopes of a pay day. The guy looked like some NBA player pretending and taking a fall after being shoved.

To Kris in NYC: this is the BEST place to be when it comes to complaining about the paparazzi. This is THEIR site, so to be able to trash these clowns on their own comments page is almost therapeutic. If there were none, I personally would be glad, because there'd be less dipsh*ts on the planet.
