Joe Jackson

NOT Ready for Close-Up

... Almost Arrested

10/6/2012 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1005-tmz-joe-jacksonYou would think Joe Jackson would be flattered when anyone wanted to take a picture of him ... but he flipped out when a Vegas tourist tried photographing him, and it almost landed the famous dad in the pokey.

Here's the low down.  Joe was at The Palms Thursday when a hotel guest recognized the famous dad and aimed his camera in Joe's direction.  Jackson allegedly went ballistic, screaming "Don't take pictures of me!"  The guest claims Joe lunged at him, making contact.

Joe almost got more publicity than the time he announced he signed a new rap artist days after Michael died ... because the guest called security and demanded to get Vegas cops involved.

But Joe got a reprieve ... by the time cops arrived the guest cooled down and decided not to press charges.

But here's the thing.  We don't think the guest got his picture, so here you go

Oh My God he's gonna eat the man! Looks like a chubby shark..... in a pimp suit! I didn't know Joe Jackson's teeth were all jacked up in his gums on one side of his mouth. You must really got to get punched in the mouth hard to knock your teeth IN!

This is very out of character for him. I live where he lives in Las Vegas and seen people bother him for autographs and pictures and he's usually very accommodating. I can see where it might get on his nerves after a while.

Katherine or Janet needs to send a private investigator right this minute to see what he has done. He's probably hiding money, a woman, or more children in Vegas.

Has to be more to the story here. I live in Vegas and see Joe almost weelky at my work. He has never been rude or not willing to take pictures with anyone in the last 16 years I have seen him. Nice try TMZ try to dig dirt somewhere else. You might try seeing what the real story is.
