Photographer Shot at Britney Spears' Home

Aug 7, 1:34 AM (ET)


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.

He probably shot himself with a pellet gun so he can sue.

No I am guessing trailer trash hubby was simply protecting his trailer queen.

The guy seems like a dirt bag so I wouldn't put it past him.

I don't know who your talking about, but if he did it it wouldn't make him a dirt bag. It would make him a guy that wants some privacy.

I heard that Britney's husband knocked up another girl before and has to send child support from his allowance! He's a real catch, eh?

Wow! Britney is stupid and/or just wants a dumbnut for a husband to play with and keep on a tight leash. Britney probably caught an STD from that loser by now! Ah, the glamourous women in the entertainment biz.

firefighters bandaged the man's leg and he went to a hospital.




Who said Airsoft isn't an effective manstopper?

the neghbor kids would play around my house and alley with their airsofts, so I went and got a CO2 one to shoot them and tell them to get off my property, etc. It would shoot through carpeting and aluminum cans from across the backyard...I returned it though since it was an unreliable POS. Supposedly even if you are in your own house, backyard, etc you cannot fire a pellet, airsoft, paintball, or real gun inside the city limits - That is a fucked up law!

I guess they'll ban assult bb guns now.

Funny one of the Sa nite newscast(KABC ch7-Los Angeles) gave the impression that he was shot with a firearm, rather than a BB gun. It was not until the end of the story that the newscaster said "pellet gun."

If he wanted some privacy , he shouldn't have married her....

I do like how they sensationalizie it...

Headline "Photographer Shot at Britney Spears' Home", giving the impression of a firearm.

Then later, "was shot in the leg with a pellet gun", giving the perception of an air rifle.

Then finally, they accidently stumble upon the truth: "It was unclear who fired the plastic pellet". Big deal. Airsoft. I bet the guy wouldn't have gotten bandaged up if it wasn't outside a celeb's house.

Jeez, can we pleez reserve the term "shot" to go with "firearms" and NOT PLASTIC TOYS!!!

anything for a headline, I have absolutely NO faith in the press anymore.

You don't need to get a bandage, let alone go to a hospital when hit by a gay airsoft toy

If someone was staking out my house, I'd be inclined to make sure their windows were so coated with paint from my paintball gun that they wouldnt get a good picture.

"So there I was, doing my security detail for Britney, and I hear a noise in the bushes outside the house. I use my thermal imaging scope and find there's a suspicious person hiding. I position myself for a clear line of sight... and I DRAW DOWN! Got the bastard!!!"

But if you want to sell your story to a tabloid, it helps.

Maybe airsoft snipers have a purpose after all.... asshat paparazzi got what he deserved. Only thing better would be the tear gas rounds for paintball guns.
