Brian Austin Green, Megan Fox

Sued For Alleged Brutality

On the Beach

3/26/2012 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0326_brian_fox_launch_EX_v2Brian Austin Green is being sued by a celebrity photographer who claims he was brutally beaten by the actor as his wife, Megan Fox, egged him on.

Delbert Shaw claims in a lawsuit that will be filed this morning in L.A. County Superior Court ... he was taking pics of the smoking hot couple last December on the beach in front of the Four Seasons Resort in Hualalai, Hawaii ... when Brian and Megan allegedly made verbal threats against Shaw. 

According to the suit, it escalated when Megan yelled to her hubby, "Are you going to let him get away with that?"

Shaw alleges Brian defended Megan's honor by hauling off and pummeling him, causing severe injuries. To add insult to injury, Shaw claims Brian threw his iPhone into the deep blue sea.

Shaw says Megan was egging Brian on during the entire incident.

He's suing for unspecified damages and is represented by attorney Sark Ohanian at the law firm of Carpenter, Zuckerman & Rowley, LLP in Beverly Hills.

Calls to reps for Fox and Green were not returned.

The photographer looks no more hurt than he would have been if Megan was the one who took him down. Any judge should laugh at the victim.

Leave the people alone on vacation and you won't get wrestled to the ground. He hardly looks pummelled in these photos. He deserves what he got. I am no fan of this couple but they deserve not to be stalked by an idiot pap.

Is "celebrity photographer" a nice name for paparrazi? Maybe this was a TMZ photographer since TMZ chose not to call him what he was - paparazzi.

Beat down? It looks more like he's trying to give the guy a dry hump. They're all a bunch of losers. And they had better save their money because their careers are both over.

While I find this stupid. I must say, Celebs need to accept the fact that if they want to be famous, then they have to deal with people taking pictures of them, no matter how much they want privacy, when they are out in public, they are fair game. Now, if they were in their back yard and someone was hoping their fence or sneaking into their yard/house.. then let 'em have it. On a public beach... sorry..

Yeah, it happened in December and he's just now suing? He doesn't look too injured in the pictures. He was probably insulting/talking s**t to Megan and Brian was protecting his wife. He deserved what he got. Needs to grow up and accept that he can't do anything he wants because he has a camera.
