Cops Swoop in After Photogs Chase Paris Jackson

7/12/2011 12:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Two paparazzi were handcuffed by cops after allegedly blowing red lights while chasing Michael Jackson's daughter, Paris Jackson ... TMZ has learned.

0712_paris_photosg_3

 The photogs -- not TMZ -- were allegedly chasing the car Paris was in, blowing red lights and driving recklessly, trying to get a shot of MJ's daughter.

We're told the cops are not going to arrest the photogs because police didn't see the chase.  In fact, they will not even be cited for the same reason.

 Instead, we're told a crime report will be written and forwarded to the L.A. City Attorney for possible prosecution.

UPDATE: Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, cops have decided NOT to refer the incident to prosecutors due to insufficient evidence ... but Paris is still free to sue in civil court.

I wonder if the paps pay a commission to the LAPD for allowing them to blow traffic laws to get pictures of celebs.

Apparently the LAPD doesn't seem to mind photographers breaking traffic laws; they must get great side deals from the photographers.

Diana...just sayin'

and 'not TMZ' my REAR. You guys are always there taking pics of what just went down. Question for your little live TMZ BS - Would you say it WAS TMZ if it were? exactly...

You guys are going to kill someone AGAIN, just back off and let ppl live their lives. Harvey better hope I never win the lotto or something because I will personally hire a team of paps to follow your a$$ 24/7 taking pics of you everywhere you go CONSTANTLY just so you can see what you put ppl through.

paps need to be banned.

Not TMZ paparazzis?? And how would we know? Anybody can say anything online! Harvey needs to be the boss and tell his paps to not run red lights..innocent people's lives could be in danger.

These pappz are s***, and TMZ isn't doing that scene any favors, although most believe they're just propaganda ministers paid by the agents to show up on cue to give their 'stars' some good 'press' as if they're just normal people.

Don't the people here wonder how it is they're always at the right place at the right time while s*** like that *****ttbag getting arrested have to creep around like ****roaches to get just one picture of these people?

That's why I come here, to smack this scam down, especially now we know Harvey's on the take and takes it on the sly. Sad thing that was to learn. He lost a fan with that disclosure.

each individual paparazzi should have to have a $3 million general liability insurance cert on file with each city and county they operate in, AND be licensed, or risk having their equipment confiscated... any other legit production company shooting on the streets has to go through a permit process... why not these bozos?

THIS IS OBVIOUSLY ALL KATHERINE'S FAULT WHO PUSHED MICHAEL'S CHILDREN UNDER THE SPOTLIGHT ALL THE TIME!! MICHAEL HAD ACCURATELY AVOIDED THIS BECAUSE HE PROTECTED HIS CHILDREN!! INSTEAD KATHERINE PUSHED THEM INTO THE SPOTLIGHTS WITH THE EXCUSE TO MAKE THEM LIVE A """NORMAL LIFE""" (INSULTING HER SON!!!) AND THIS IS ALL NORMAL FOR HER, THAT HER GRANDCHILDREN ARE CHASED EVERYWHERE!!! THE ONLY NORMAL LIFE THEY WERE LIVING WITH MICHAEL WHO LEFT THEM BE CHILDREN, LIVING THEIR CHILDHOOD SERENELY!!! I CAN'T EVEN IMAGINE HOW MICHAEL WOULD FEEL!!!KATHERINE CONTRAVENED ALL HIS WISHES AND SHE SHOULD ONLY BE ASHAMED FOR THE SHAMEFUL WAY SHE IS RAISING HIS CHILDREN!!!
