According to TMZ, former American Idol contestant Adam Lambert has been accused of battery by a paparazzi who tried to take photos of the singer on the beach in Miami. According to the police report, Lambert allegedly grabbed the bag where the camera was said to be placed and wrestled the man to the ground.
The thing is, photos on the scene show that the camera is clearly in the photographers hand. So someone is lying, and it doesn’t seem to be Lambert.
Adam quickly went to his Twitter account, tweeting “Battery? Nope. I attempted to grab a camera, no punches were thrown and no one was on the ground…. It was literally harmless. If embarrassment is a crime- thats all I’m guilty of. ”
Policy will decide later if they will turn the case over to the States Attorney, who will then decide if they want to prosecute Lambert. If convicted he could face up to one year in jail and a one thousand dollar fine.
Honestly though, it looks like Adam will come out okay. It’s obvious the photographer was lying, and really doesn’t have a case. I think the only thing Lambert truly regrets is wearing that straw hat.
