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.

This is getting out of control. Why are there not laws in place protecting minors from these trashbag paparazzi?

In England there is a tough law in place that prohibits paparazzi from chasing/photographing children of celebrities. Maybe grand-mama Katherine and her grand-kids should move to England.

Good gosh, what, are we going to have to have a Princess Diana situation happen over here in the U.S. before anything can be done?? The paps sometimes push the limits way too much.
Plus, this is a minor they are doing this too. Doesn't matter she is the daughter of the most famous entertainer this world has ever seen and may ever see for that matter. But she is just that. His child. Leave her alone. He may went a little overboard when it came to his children's protection, but at least no one knew what they looked like and this **** would not have happened.

And what the heck, do they not even get citations for running the red lights and driving recklessly???? Seems like the LAPD protect the paps way too much there.

KATHERINE SHOULD BE SUED FOR BEING A BAD MOTHER AND GRANDMOTHER!!! THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT MICHAEL HAS ALWAYS AVOIDED AND NEVER WANTED FOR HIS CHILDREN!!! THEY SHOULDN'T BE OBLIGED TO FACE SITUATIONS LIKE THIS, SO HORRIBLE!!! LAWSUIT??!! MICHAEL HAS ALWAYS PROTECTED THEM, LEAVING THEM BE CHILDREN!!! KATHERINE SHOULD BE ASHAMED, SHE JUST AIMS TO EXPLOIT THEM FOR HER PERSONAL GAINS EVEN EXPOSE THEM TO DANGEROUS SITUATIONS LIKE THIS!!! SHAMEFUL!!!

Disgusting that the rabid paparazzi would risk their lives and the lives of others just to get a photo of Paris. I like Paris, I think she's a sweet kid. BUT, what has she done, other than being the "daughter" of Michael Jackson, that warrant's all this attention? Leave the girl alone, you pathetic leaches.

She saw what was happening...must have been scary for her. :( Chasing a minor like that is just wrong. I hope some kind of law is implemented before tragedy strikes.

Paris should sue them, make some money off the Paps for a change, she'd def make her Dad proud in doing so! Disgusting how they chase little kids around having no regard for their safety whatsoever!

Same thing happened to Princess Di and look what happened to her. She is dead because of the paps. I swear, I hope nothing happens to Michael's kids. I will have a heart attack.

For some reason, my brain went numb for a minute and I also thought Paris was a boy. I couldn't think of who Paris Jackson was either. Must be one of those days.
