NEW ARREST VIDEO

'He Tried to Kill Me'

The incident that led to the Rob Kardashian vs. Paparazzo arrest didn't appear to be a "joke" when it was happening ... because the photog told police, "He tried to kill me" ... and it's all caught on tape.

TMZ broke the story ... Rob was handcuffed and arrested early Sunday morning after chasing after a paparazzo and cornering him in a bong shop.  Rob insisted he was just "joking" with the pap.

But new footage has surfaced ... which shows Rob was in a very heated argument with a super attractive female moments before the incident. It appears Rob gave chase to the pap AFTER he realized the argument was being recorded.

The pap ran to the nearby smoke shop to hide out ... but Rob spotted him and followed him inside. Cops saw the chase and darted inside the shop ... bursting into the store as Rob was closing in on the photog.

Once the pap sees the cops ... he yells out, "He's attacking me ... he chased me ... he tried to kill me." During the video, Rob never lays a hand on the pap.

The officers grabbed Rob and asked him why he was in the shop ... to which the reality star replied, "I'm shopping."

Kardashian was placed in handcuffs and warned, "Don't resist."

According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, Rob confirmed to cops that he gave chase because he "did not like the paparazzi filming him."

Eventually, cops determined there was no altercation, and let both men go.

Jay Leno was such a toady to K.K on 3/21 show. And the prompted audience response was so obvious.

So the "attractive" female is Rita Ora, a singer on Jay Z's ROC NATION label, allegedly Rob and her are dating? The photog is a stunt queen and a liar and should have charges for lying to police about the incident. So now paps can invade someone's privacy for profit and then lie when confronted, attempting to get the other person in trouble? What a world!

Once again a paparazzo from a foreign country, they should of checked his papers and made sure he was he in the USA legally. Rob Kardashian show should unleash his lawyers on this paparazzo!

What's really amazing to me is how clear the footage is and how steady the camera is. If this were truly filmed as it unfolded, one you think the camera would have been shaky! Could this have been STAGED?

Hey Rob Kardashian...I have a little secret????? If you don't want the media to follow you.....then get the hell off television and Americans will be glad to see your botox, do anything for fame, fur wearing, face-lifting family off our televisions. This kind of thing happens when you have nothing to do with your time. How about you and your family get REAL jobs like most Americans. We are frankly tired of seeing your family and they do not represent most Americans ;infact, they represent an example of what most Americans do not want to be like. Get it? We don't want to see your family anymore...you're whole clan is pathetic!!!

I also agree, that foreigners (esp. from Great Britian) are coming into this country and turning America into britian (trash magazines)...most of them are from Great Britian...it is time that they stop controlling our media BUT it's up to Americans to stand up and take over our media again!!!!! Foreigners are trashing our country
