Russell Brand

Security Guard Says R.B. Screwed Up His Knee

... Royally

A security guard who is suing Russell Brand says the actor was trying to escape paparazzi when R.B.'s Range Rover plowed into him.

Victor Sneed's lawyer, Bob Fink, tells TMZ, his client -- who works as a security guard at an L.A. medical center -- was doing his job in January when Russell came out of the facility ... to a gaggle of photogs.

Fink says Russell jumped in his Range Rover and tried to leave and in the process struck Sneed from the front.  Russell stopped and asked a dazed Sneed if he was ok -- Fink says his client was too stunned to answer so Russell left.

Fink tells us ... Russell sent one of his people back to the scene and gave Sneed his personal info.  Fink says Russell wanted to settle it without going to the insurance company but that didn't happen.

Now Fink says, his client is hobbling around with a knee brace and may need surgery.  Fink says Sneed's back is also screwed up.

So far, the insurance company hasn't offered a settlement and that's why Sneed sued Brand.

11 months later and he just now might need surgery? sounds to me like he messed up his knee some other way and is looking for a convenient way to avoid paying his own medical bills...

It sounds like Russell tried to his best to make sure this guy was okay, but the guard got greedy.

R.B. is a loser, however they need to create some stiff laws and impose some hefty fines against the paps. I hate what they do and can't understand how they have the "right" to do it. But nothing will be done until people get dead from it.

Also with this coming election I care too much for the 23 million unemployed people and struggeling small to mid-size businesses in this country to want to vote for Obama again. All we will get is another 4 years of poor economic growth.

Stop being so partisan people!!!! You should care more about the country than your political party affiliation. It is so sad that some people put their party affiliation ahead of common sense.

It seemed Russell did everything correct in stopping, then having someone give the guy his personal information. It is odd that now this guy is coming forward to try and collect. If the insurance company thought it was a valid claim they would of paid him. But I feel the blame should be placed on the paps. How can someone expect to drive safely when there are people swarming the car trying to get a picture. It has always been dangerous and I am surprised no one has been killed yet. Some sort of law needs to be passed to stop over aggressive paps. Like when a person gets in a car they need to stay a safe distance away.
