For some unknown reason, singer Adam Lambert lost his shizz and started attacking a paparazzo photographer in Miami, FL … and is now being investigated for assault. Naturally, the whole thing was captured on film by other paparrazos in the area … behold:
TMZ has learned … the Miami Beach Police Department is now in the middle of a violent incident involving “American Idol” runner-up Adam Lambert … after the alleged victim filed a police report. Law enforcement sources tell us the paparazzo seen grappling with Lambert on the beach yesterday walked into a Miami Beach police station around 10:30 PM last night and filed a report … accusing the singer of misdemeanor battery. According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, the victim claims Adam grabbed his backpack “where the camera was placed” … and “wrestled [the photog] to the ground forcefully.” One big problem — in photos that were taken of the incident, the camera appears to be in the photog’s hand … not in his bag. The police report also notes that the photog didn’t sustain any “bruises or lacerations.” Cops tell detectives will decide if the case is worth turning over to the State’s Attorney — who will decide whether to prosecute Lambert. If convicted, Lambert could face up to one year in jail and a $1,000 fine. After yesterday’s clash — Lambert went right to his Twitter account and posted, “I lost my temper for a sec but wow it felt great lol MIAMI!!!”
Because this incident is still under investigation, we do not know what really went down … it’s possible the paparazzo had another camera in his backpack but even that is beside the point. It’s clear that Lambert got physical with this man … and then all but confessed to the crime in his own words on Twitter. After the jump, check out the police report from this physical altercation …
Yeah, I’m not sure what exactly cased Adam Lambert to freak out like this … either the pap is a Kris Allen fan or maybe he said something mean about Adam’s fug hat but something set off The Glambert. Even so, I doubt any sort of real punishment will come from this incident.
