A brawl broke out at a Malibu beach on Saturday afternoon, June 21 when a group of local surfers attacked paparazzi who were snapping pics of actor Matthew McConaughey. There were reportedly 12 photographers on the beach in Malibu trying to get shots of the hunk as he was surfing with friends. The surfers asked the photogs to stop filming and taking pictures, but when that didn't happen, things got physical.

A 29-year-old paparazzo from Santa Monica who was trying to photograph McConaughey told police he was attacked by a mob of surfers who threw his camera in the ocean. The photojournalist told sheriff's deputies that a large group of surfers near Paradise Cove in Malibu approached him and other paparazzi at about 2 P.M. Saturday and demanded the group to stop taking pictures and filming.

Speaking about the incident, Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department spokesman Steve Whitmore told the Los Angeles Times, "[The surfers] formed a semicircle in front of his camera and they said [McConaughey] didn't want him to film. They got into an argument, and [the photographer] indicated that he received injuries ... [The surfers] took the video camera and threw it in the water."

There are reports that another paparazzo suffered a broken nose. Detectives and the Sheriff's Department's Lost Hills Station, according to Whitmore, were investigating the incident. McConaughey's people, meanwhile, have yet to comment on the fight.
