According to Los Angeles County Sheriff spokesperson, Steve Whitmore, "There was apparently a fight, and the photographer gave a statement that he received injuries." ( One photographer apparently got a broken nose.) McConaughey was not involved in the fight. Web site TMZ.com posted a video Sunday showing approximately 12 men in swim gear approaching a group of paparazzi. The so called "surfers" were yelling and swearing. One of the photographers returns insults and a scuffle ensues.
The surfer smiles and says, "I just drink beer and party." At least the surfer gets points for honesty. While a battery investigation has been opened, there appears to be no charges brought by the prosecution. Had George Carlin been present, he may have had a few choice words for the Paparazzi including "The Seven Words You Can't Say on T.V."
