TMZ.com's Starcatcher team, the internet's leading documentarians of the weave-scalping, paparazzi-hospitalizing atrocities being committed each night outside of Hollywood's most exclusive safe-harbors for violent insurgents, found themselves caught up in the brutality they so faithfully capture on video each night when the crew tragically wandered within pummeling range of an agitated C-lister. An excerpt from their report on a run-in with CSI star Gary Dourdan follows:
Clad in leather biker gear, Dourdan violently grabbed our photog outside Hyde, who the actor had mistaken for another guy, and slammed him to the pavement several times, sending his head bouncing into concrete over and over again — all while his camera continued to roll.
The chaos began after Dourdan pulled up to the club on his Ducati motorcycle, and shouted at the photog to "get that f**king camera out of my face!" The photog obliged, pointing the camera to the ground — but Dourdan's rage continued to grow, and the cameraman kept the record button on just in case something happened. Moments later, something happened.
This regrettable incident is just another disturbing reminder of the dangers of being out in Hollywood after dark. Even in seemingly safe, well-populated areas like the sidewalks outside of trendy drinking establishments or the inside of world-famous comedy clubs, the possibility of a head-splitting, Lovitizian beatdown always looms.
