A rep for Jodie Foster has cleared out report that the 47-year-old actress has been accused of battery after reportedly attacking a 17-year-old boy who attempted to take photographs of her and her children. The rep told People, "This guy's behavior was completely inappropriate and the police report is a fabrication of the incident."

The rep further explained about the situation which occurred at a shopping center in Los Angeles on May 29 between 1:50 P.M. and 2:00 P.M. "This guy was most definitely a professional paparazzo," the rep started. "He had a large camera bag and 1000mm telephoto lens. He tailed Jodie and followed her all the way from the movie theater to the valet."

The rep later stated that the boy had been following Foster for a while, claiming "He crowded her and her two young children and took photos of them the whole time." The "Nim's Island" actress, eventually, went up to the boy and asked him to stop.

Foster's attack was first reported by Radar Online. The site obtained police report's description which read, "Vict while at The Grove saw susp and began to take pics of susp with his camera then walked to the valet area of The Grove. Susp followed vict, poked him on his chest, grabbed vict by his left arm causing visible injury."

The father of the 17-year-old boy, additionally, told the site about the incident. "Jodie Foster attacked my son at the parking lot at The Grove. Jodie pushed and shoved him leaving scratches and bruises on his arm," said the father who wished to remain anonymous.

"My son was at The Grove with his girlfriend and they were going to see a movie. He saw Jodie Foster and is a big fan so went over and took a picture of her," the father continued. "She came after him, poked him in the chest and said, 'Do you even have a mother you slime ball?' He didn't mouth back at all and was scared of her. At one point Jodie's son even came over to my son and apologized. Her kids were really embarrassed."

The family of the alleged victim later went to police who filled out an incident report. However, the police did not respond at the scene because the incident report can be a "he said, she said" type of document. "On top of it all, he's a minor!," the alleged victim's father said. "This left a really bad impression on my son about her. He used to be a big fan and now he has a bad taste in his mouth. He's a good kid; kind of small for his age. There was no threat to Jodie."

If she can't handle the life that comes with being a celebrity,then maybe she choose the wrong business to work in!

Put the kid & his old man in jail for stalking and harassing. Before release give each 9 lashes with a cat-o-nine-tails. Justice done!

Hey dad, how would you like it if a complete stranger walked up to you in a theater, parking lot, whatever and stuck a camera infront of you and took a pic. I don't know about you but it would make me a little uneasy. You know there are preditors out there, fool!!!
