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.

So...you seriously invade someone's privacy in the worst way to make a buck for yourself...then when they object, you'll sue?

When the suit is tossed out, Brian should beat his ass a second time just for good measure.

The 911 call went something like this:

GUY: Help, I'm being beaten silly by some has-been who was on 90210 in the 90s and somehow managed to get Megan Fox...

911 OPERATOR: Are you saying some has-been is dating Megan Fox?

GUY: That's what I'm saying. I'm also saying that I'm presently being beaten senseless by the guy. With all that free time he has he's obviously been working out, and it hurts. It hurts real bad.

911 OPERATOR: Wow. Megan Fox. Damn!

Maybe the celebrity photographer will get the message that privacy is something everyone would like.

what it looks like is the guy took a closeup picture of his wife and she complained? ... who knows where the lens was aiming when pictures flashed.... brain her husband looked at the pictures who knows if he deleted any pictures or even apologized for his wife's panicking thinking he took closeup pictures of her private parts??? its understandable his actions but it doesn't look like an assault.... it looks like the cameraman was trying to keep him from getting the camera and or then submitted and showed him the photos in the end showing him their was no offensive pictures.... i dont think brian took him down or even injured him i hope this doesn't hurt their marriage?

Real simple. If you are one of the paps, i think you knowingly put yourself out there to get popped if you are in someones face for the sake of being in their face. i think the price of that risk is that you give up rights to sue like a cry baby when you get a boo boo and need a band aid....

What is wrong with people? If you go around invading people's privacy and taking pictures without asking, you are in the wrong. Celebrities even, should have their right to privacy. The public does not have the right to a celebrity's private life.

One of these days a celeb is going to go after a pap that knows how to defend themselves effectively. These paps tend to run in teams, so the whole event of the jerk getting subdued, restrained and eventually arrested will be all over the innerwebz. I'm looking forward to it. :)
