Adam Lambert Accused of Battery by Loser Cameraman

by at . Comments

Looks like Adam Lambert did not take the advice we offered to Miley Cyrus this week.

Following that singer's tantrum at the sight of a paparazzo, THG said we understood how irritating those losers can be, but celebrities also must learn to expect such annoyances as part of the world in which they've chosen to live. The alternative is to give these parasites exactly what they are looking for: a story.

Lambert has learned this lesson the hard way, as the former American Idol finalist has been accused of battery.

  • Avoiding the Rays
  • Adam in Miami

The incident in question took place yesterday in Miami, as Adam attacked a photographer... who then filed a report with the Miami Beach police around 10:30 p.m.

In documents obtained by TMZ, the victim claims Adam grabbed his backpack "where the camera was placed" ... and "wrestled [the photog] to the ground forcefully." There were no visible marks of any kind on the cameraman.

Cops will review the evidence and then decide if the case is worth turning over to the State's Attorney, who could choose to prosecute Lambert on a misdemeanor battery charge that could lead to a year in prison.

The odds of this case getting anywhere near that far? About as high as Glenn Beck attending the Rally to Restore Sanity.

Following the confrontation, Lambert owned up to his actions on Twitter and wrote: "I lost my temper for a sec but wow it felt great lol... I attempted to grab a camera, no punches were thrown and no one was on the ground.... It was literally harmless. If embarrassment is a crime- thats all I'm guilty of."

Now, it's your turn to weigh in. Whose side are you on in this feud?

Oh come off it, you can't call what happened with Miley 'a tantrum at the sight of a paprazzo', that's downplaying what happened to quite a massive extent. The girl was hounded by SEVERAL paps who literally cornered her and kept taking her picture even when she was begging them to stop. Not to mention that they'd almost driven her off the road and forced her security to arrange for a police escort because of how dangerously they were acting two days before.
Yeah, you hate Miley blah blah, we all know, but there's no need to be unnecessary about it.

Sean Penn is how old? Is there an age limit to when you get tired of putting up with crap? I'm glad that Adam stood up for himself. But I see the concern police and arm chair lawyers are typing away on blogs as to how much trouble poor Adam is in and how he should control himself. At the same time they are just hoping and praying that he is in more trouble than he is. Get a life people. Whatever Adam does or does not do has no effect on you or your favorite idol.

AL proves himself over and over to be courteous and patient. That being said there are limits to what any human being has to put up with.

Lol! There were a couple of things wrong with the paps statement #1 the camera was in his hand the whole time #2 He never left his feet. Guess the stupid guy filed the police report before he viewed the other guys photos.
