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.

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.

1. Why weren't criminal charges filed?
2. The photog was using a Canon 1D MK III and a Canon 70-200 EF IS USM lens, total price on that kit about $5K
3. BAG was trying to take the guys camera, the guy was very passive and was just protecting his camera.
4. BAG then took the guys phone, and was trying to get him to delete the pics or BAG would keep the phone, BAG then threw the phone in the water.
5. Why he wasn't arrested for stealing the phone like Russ Brand, I do not know.

TMZ reported "Smoking hot couple".. I disagree. Megan Fox isn't attractive.

Woman with numerous large tattoes are skanky in my opinion. Megan may have been pretty at one time, but when she started inking herself up, she became ugly. I don't know why woman think those big tattoes are attractive.....small flowers or butterflies are fine, but those big ones that take up an entire arm or leg are just nasty. Plus, does BAG even do anything anymore or does he smooch off Megan's income. When she has it coming in that is.....it always seems they are in swimsuits on the beach. Is that all they do? If so, how hard is it to let the paps take a few photos?

I don't blame them at all. There's no way the paparazzi should be that close. So what they're celebs, they deserve to be able to enjoy freedom without these idiots with camera's in their faces!! There should be stricter laws for these morons. They have no respect for anyone.

A word of advice for the guys: stay far, far away from any woman who says, "Are you going to let him get away with that?" Most guys who were with chicks who say that are doing time right now.

you know... if moron paps would actually be polite about taking photos of celebrities, and not ambushing them every moment of their miserable lives, they might not get their asses kicked so much. i sincerely believe that 90% of paps act like stalkers and hound celebs simply to start a fight and sue when they get hit. i have no respect for these photogs who make a living by invading people's privacy

After a LAPD thorough investigation the district attorney concluded that there was not sufficient evidence to press charges

There is a time and place. Because these photogs keep finding themselves in awkward positions, they should stop following them.
