Strange twist in the TMZ-X17 paparazzi "tragedy"

Reports flew yesterday that one of the teams of paparazzi who chase Britney Spears around town was run over and smashed under the wheels of a Land Rover (our favorite response was how the corporate porn-pushing gossip site TMZ.com distanced itself from the ugly mess by placing the incident in the context of "Spears madness"). By the time the story made a brief appearance on The Drudge Report late in the day, the situation was downgraded from tragedy to another wacky Britney escapade, as it was on the blog that started it all:
"11:00 AM PT Update: Somehow, probably by an act of God, the victim was released from the hospital last night with only a tire mark on his arm. TMZ reports that there was not a single broken bone or no internal injuries."
So much for eyewitness accounts.

One of these days a paid stalker is going to trigger a crash that injures/kills an innocent party to their pursuit, and the proverbial shit will hit the fan. Sad that someone must pay that price for this hysteria to be tamed. Shame on the LAPD for not stepping in and putting a stop to this sooner.

I agree, the LAPD should have stopped this nonsense a long time ago. Eventually someone is going to get killed.
