MALIBU, Calif. (AP) - A photographer was shot in the leg with a pellet gun outside Britney Spears' home Saturday evening, authorities said.

It was unclear who fired the plastic pellet as the photographer was staking out an event at the pop singer's Malibu home, Sheriff's Department Lt. Steve Smith said. He said firefighters bandaged the man's leg and he went to a hospital.

"It could've been somebody driving by, walking by, we have no idea where it came from," Smith said.

The photographer, identified as Brad Diaz, was about 200 yards from the home and outside Spears' long driveway when he was hit, Smith said.

A message left with Spears' publicist was not immediately returned Saturday night.

The word "silly" comes to mind.

#####!!!

The above actually references a common nickname for a cat, (or a euphemism for a sniveling weakling) but could be construed as a CoC violation, so it has been pre-emptively removed.

If somebody were in the trees in my back yard taking pictures of me...

Well...

I'd release a few 37mm CS canisters his way.

No bruises. no lawsuit.

Which reminds me, I have to go shopping.

I don't know what is worse. The fact that this made the news, or the fact that he went to the hospital!

Plastic pellet? Is this an airsoft? What fps does an airsoft generate? Can it break the skin?

How about the fact that he was hiding in the bushes outside someone's home.

Anywhere between 100 fps and upwards of 500 fps.

It can break the skin, but.....

They should have said, "On the leg" instead of "In"
