Lamar Odom Attack

Photog Wants to

Press Charges

7/12/2013 2:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE



One of the L.A. photogs Lamar Odom went nuts on this week has lawyered up, law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... and we're told the man plans to press charges against the NBA star.

According to sources, detectives are still investigating the incident -- when Lamar flipped on two photogs in Hollywood, damaging equipment and allegedly smashing one of their cars -- but the case will most likely be forwarded to the L.A. City Attorney soon for criminal prosecution.

It's unclear which photog is pursuing legal recourse ... but we're told one DEFINITELY wants to see Lamar go down for what he did.

As we reported, it appears Lamar snapped because a photog asked questions about Khloe Kardashian ... namely about Lamar's alleged extramarital affair with a stripper.

Attempts to reach the photogs involved, as well as Lamar, were unsuccessful.

If you cannot protect celebrities from these goading, baiting, stalkers, then don't charge celebrities after they take matters in their own hands.

Good, lock him up and throw that fat ass Rob in with him, since he attacked the pap too. Money always buys their way out of trouble. Ask Lamar about his fake charity while you're at it.

Another example of blatant american arrogance, that he would commit robbery just because someone asked him a question he didn't like. He should go jail for robbery, and I don't mean celebrity jail.

And this is surprising? You don't just open someone's car door and start throwing their possessions in the street, and later TAKE them. They were damaged, and he had no right getting into that car in the first place. I've known several men who get destructive when they're accused of doing something they DID do. They think it will put the focus on the behavior instead of the question. Nope, just makes you look like an asshat who is definitely guilty!

Even though charges should be filed against the person assaulting them I think the paps should only be allowes to take pictures and stuff when the celebs are on red carpets. Its sad that the celebs cant lead normal lives without cameras following them around because it is an evasion of privacy.

Who does he think he is to disrupt traffic like that? He's not anyone special; he's just another human being on this planet like the rest of us. It's time some of these stars start getting some jail time as well as community service time. Why do they all think they're gods of some sort and above the law? Because they are allowed to get away with it!!!!! Treat them all like the little boys that they are (and girls) and start punishing these temper tantrum brats.

Why are the cops always "still investigating the incident" with all of these celebs when there is video evidence to back up the crime? Dear Cops: I don't think that needs any investigating, I think you watch the video, and go arrest them one by one. If it were any average tax paying person then based on WORD alone, you or I could go to jail for less than this.

WHY do these Kardashian baby daddies get so upset with the paps? If they lived a NORMAL life and didn't sleep around like their current hookups, there wouldn't be anything to get upset about.

WHY WOULD PRESSING CHARGES BE A PROBLEM? YOU CANT EVEN DO that PEACEFULLY? IF YOU BREAK THE LAW YOU PAY. NO ONE BREAKS THE LAW YOUR NOT SPECIAL.
