Rob Kardashian

Detained by Police

After 'Joke' Goes Wrong

3/26/2012 4:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rob Kardashian handcuffed.Rob Kardashian tried joking around with a paparazzo in Miami early Sunday morning ... and he ended up handcuffed and nearly arrested as a result ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to Rob tell TMZ he was out with some friends when he saw a photog taking pictures from across the street. We're told Rob thought it would be funny to start sprinting towards the photog ... but the photog didn't laugh and instead ran away screaming for help. 

According to our sources, Rob followed the guy into a smoke shop to try and clear the air (no pun intended) but the police saw the whole thing and decided to get involved (see video below).

0325_rob_k_videoWe're told cops interviewed both Rob and the photog -- even putting Rob in the back of a police car. But after Rob explained to them it was all a misunderstanding, he was released.

And that's why you never chase after strangers.

According to the Miami Beach PD, it went down pretty much just like that. The report says Rob ran after the photog, but never threatened him. The police determined there was no altercation, so they let them both go.

Rob moves hs hands in a way that the cop cant get the cuffs on and beaucse he is so wasted he keeps back talking the cop. Rob is lucky the cop caught him a braeak he could have arrested him for esting arest.
When he bangs him up nexted to the soada machine
it looks like there about to make a gay porn movie.
This could finaly be Robs calling GAY PORN!

Is there really money in following Rob Kardashian around with a camera? I mean.. people out there pay other people for pics of this nobody? I kind of get following the sisters around as a paparazzi but this guy?

I say another Kartrashian publicity stunt. I wonder how much TMZ pays to suck on Kartrashian teats.

So let me get this straight, he's videotaping and taking pictures of him aka "legally stalking" him, but Rob runs towards him and he wants help. That's not backwards at all.

Thats ridiculous. The photographer is following people around and taking photos and thats no problem but the minute the 'legal stalker' feels threatened the police step in? What were the police going to arrest him for? Detained on suspicion of what? There needs to be laws in place to stop photographers following people everywhere they go.

Heaven forbid I defend a Kardashian. Who cares. But I saw the video a few weeks ago where a paparazzo stealths out of the bushes and darts up to Mel Gibson as he left a restaurant in a strip mall---it looked like a mugging in progress. How is that legal? How can you run up to someone, but it's legal if your a fake-journalist, and illegal if your a dork?
