American Idol’s Adam Lambert has joined the list of celebrities who have been accused of attacking photographer’s lately. Adam was enjoying a day on Miami Beach when a group of paparazzo’s began taking photos. For a celebrity, this is nothing new. Members of the paparazzi take advantage of every chance they have to snap candid photos of stars. Adam was even patient enough to allow photos to be taken with fans for 45 minutes before asking them to stop.
One of the photographers that day was 38 year old Victor Eras. Eras claims that Adam came after him in an “aggressive manner” and wrestled him to the ground. He admits that he did not receive any injuries in the struggle but reported the incident anyways, six hours later to the police.
Adam’s side of the story is a little different. He claims that he tried to take the camera from Eras while he was taking repeated close up shots and insulting Adam verbally.
Miami Beach police have reported that there will be no investigation into the incident. If the state attorney decides to proceed with battery charges, Adam could face a year of prison and a $1,000 fine. Adam Lambert’s publicist has not released a comment on the issue.
