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.

The cop shouldn't of handcuff him. This just gives the Kardashian's another excuse for an episode. Something we don't need.

Is it illegal to run after someone? I think if someone is stalking you with a camera you should be allowed to chase them away. Not beat them up or break their camera, but jeez. What a pu**y paparazzi!

How convenient that we have video rolling -- in true Kardashian fashion -- never let a PR moment be lost!!

And this is the man of the family -- still playing practical jokes with no real job in his future.
Way to go, Kardashians...

And what if the guy he chased had exercised his right to "stand his ground" and shot the phucker?

A pap who runs from a Kardashian is not worthy of a camera. That dude was a wimp hoping for a pay day.
