Celebrity Fights With the Paparazzi: Travis Barker of Blink-182
Along with some friends of his, Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker attacked some heckling paparazzi that would not leave the punk rocker alone. Apparently, Barker was confronted by three smack-talking photographers on his way into a restaurant, and when he was on his way out, one pap accused Barker and co. of stealing his cell phone. A full-blown screaming match followed, complete with spitting, cussing, some tire slashing and police sirens.
Barker later released a statement on the fight, tweeting (via TMZ), "Paparazzi cried like young girls when it was no longer three of them against me and my kids. Didn't they remember threatening me an hour ago? What happened to the tough guys with the cameras? It was gonna be a fair fight."
