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.

Wait a minute! A photog can follow you around, chase you down snapping pictures with their lights flashing in your face, mic's down your throat, video taping... but you can't chase a photog? So what happens if BK goes running down the street from the photog screaming help? Would the cops had stop, cuff and arrest the photog guy?

Seriously, there ought to be some law against paparazzi, photog or whatever you call them losers approaching celebs. Most of them just want to live their lives and don't want plaster all over websites like this one. Those morons from TMZ, ROL and other retarded websites trying to get stories, pictures and videos from celebrity's for their trashy tabloids can seriously get out of hands at times. They cost accident and sometimes death as in the case of Princess Diana.

This is a good joke, At least the cops got it in the end. Why do photographers feel like they have the right to follow and shoot celebs like they are wildlife? They are humans with a right to privacy.


Even a bear might chase you if you keep following it. The celebs get stalked an analyzed like they are part of a wildlife study. They might as well be Jane Goodall's baboons.


Maybe the joke should have ended when the photographer ran and hid. That got the job done already.

The cop was being a jerk! Paparazzi should be limited to events only!

Any time I see the name Kardashian in the news I automatically assume it's a publicity stunt. After all, Mama Kris is the master of them. She probably thought that after the flour incident went horribly wrong she should back off and focus on her loser son. Take the heat off of Kimmie for a minute since nobody believes a word she says.
Rob in law school???? That's funny. He has the intelligence of a gerbil

Doesn't little Robbie have a job yet and isn't he still living off one of his dumb azz sisters? This guy doesn't have a brain cell to get a real job just like his BIG sister, just get in the news any way you possibly can and maybe you will be able to sue someone for something, wish they would all go away already.
