JLH and Fiance

Photog Scuffle

Cops Investigating

9/8/2013 11:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0908-jennifer-love-hewitt-brian-hallisay-gettyJennifer Love Hewitt and fiance Brian Hallisay were involved in a pasta-fueled confrontation with a photog Friday night ... and cops have launched a criminal investigation.

JLH and Brian were leaving the always-delicious Toscana restaurant in Brentwood when a pesky paparazzo prepared to snap some pics.   We're told the couple asked the photog to lay off, but he ignored them and started snapping away.

Hallisay then allegedly got into it with the cameraman, and during the scuffle the photog claims the camera hit him in the face -- near his eye.  

Apparently Jen -- who is pregnant -- felt so bad she let the photog snap a few more pics ... and then she and Hallisay left.

Unlike Toscana's rigatoni, the confrontation didn't go down well with the photog, because law enforcement sources tell us he went to the cop shop a few hours later and filed a battery report against Hallisay.  Our sources say when he came to the station there was no visible injury to his face or eye.

The investigation is ongoing.

God, what a loser. You're fine and you know it, disgusting greedy pig. Get a real job instead of harassing and stalking people who are actually successful. Pathetic.

Better get used to it dude. Look at who you decided to put a ring on. The majority of her fame is due to her personal life and being in the media, constantly being photographed for things you and I do everyday. Mr. Ivy league with his crossfit physique should take a lesson from Shia Labeouf. Play tough guy with the wrong person and it's reality check time.

Well whatever, she got him a steady job, made sure he could afford to pay for an engagement ring and if he doesn't learn how to handle himself after this incident she'll make sure there's someone to pay for settlements and post bail.
