50 Cent

Caught Up in Mall Fight

Bodyguard Under Criminal Investigation

50 Cent's bodyguard allegedly attacked a man and his son in a shopping mall -- a man who was trying to film the rapper -- and now cops are conducting a criminal investigation.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... 50 and his son were at the Burbank Town Center Sunday when Lazzeri Frazier and his son saw 50 and thought it would be cool to shoot some cell phone video.

We're told 50's bodyguard came from behind Frazier and snatched the phone out of his hands. Frazier verbally confronted the bodyguard and the bodyguard then allegedly hauled off and shoved Frazier. The 2 began fighting and Frazier's 16-year-old son stepped in to break up the fight. The son claims the bodyguard punched him in the face.

The bodyguard fled the scene by the time cops arrived. 50 refused to speak to police, but witnesses corroborated Frazier's story.

Cops tell us the case will be sent over to prosecutors. 50 is not a suspect.

Why do these celebrities think they are above the law? You're legally allowed to film a person in public unless there are signs stating otherwise in the vicinity.

Punching a minor is not smart.

whatever    

His 'bodyguard' is obviously a total amateur. His main concern should just be concerned with his principal's physical safety, and that's it. Everyone has a camera now....so get over it

I don't believe he was punched. Either way, 50 is a good man. He doesn't bother anyone or spout off about what a genius he is. I hate rap a lot but I appreciate him

All of them should go to jail for voluntarily being in Burbank and shopping there.
