Accused of Misdemeanor Battery, Adam Lambert Explains on Twitter


Adam Lambert


After a photographer filed a report, accusing him of misdemeanor battery, the singer wrote on his Twitter page, 'Battery? Nope. I attempted to grab a camera, no punches were thrown.'

"American Idol" runner-up Adam Lambert has taken it to his Twitter page to explain a battery allegation made against him. On Friday, September 17, Lambert wrote, "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."

The incident itself happened when Lambert was relaxing in a Miami beach on Thursday, September 16. According to police report obtained by TMZ, Lambert grabbed a photographer's backpack "where the camera was placed" and "wrestled (him) to the ground forcefully." The report also mentioned that the alleged victim didn't sustain any "bruises or lacerations."

In pictures taken, Lambert was seen wearing turquoise shorts, a tank top, big straw hat and black fingernail polish. On this, the singer shared, "Hahha the photos are hilarious !! Lol please everyone forgive me for that hat. I was attempting a disguise - clearly failed." Although stating there was no scuffle, he admitted that the snapper ruined his day, writing "Eeew paparazzi killed my peaceful afternoon on the beach!"

Though the paparazzo has filed the report, accusing Lambert of misdemeanor battery, no arrest was made. A police spokesman revealed that there will be no investigation made, Associated Press further reported. The state attorney's office will review the report and decide if any charges will be filed.

    What I don't get, is why anybody would want to snap anything, except the little fag-hag's neck, anyway? Hideous little no-talent!

    If that Paps bugged a normal citizen for over one hour snapping constant photos and refusing to go away, it would be illegal. Why is it okay for them to harrass a person just before they are famous. That Paparazzi guy was a total jerk. I am sorry I wasn't there to punch him myself.

    These bottom feeders usually target the celebs that are mild mannered & easy going or WOMEN who are defenseless. There should be a UNIVERSAL law against them not just in the US. They should be banned by the WORLD so that everyone can be free of their harassment once & forever!!!

    To LMAO....love your comment. You are So on the mark about this. Some Paps are the scum of the earth, doing whatever they can to provoke, even when a celeb has been cooperative with them.

    I'm on Adam's side. He is always more than gracious with his time for interviews and photo ops. This pap crossed the line when Adam asked him to leave and he didn't. It's the pap who should have been charged, not Adam who was just defending his right to have some time to relax with friends out of the spotlight.

    Actually, Adam seemed quite restrained considering his privacy and downtime were being invaded-the paps are like annoying mosquitos or knats buzzing in your ear on a hot, sweaty Florida afternoon, no matter how much you swat at them, they are still there annoying the h___ of you. I know a degree of loss of privacy comes with fame, but give the guy a break, celebs are like the rest of us, they need time to relax and regroup. Sorry Adam that you had another bad, or at the very least annoying experience in Florida, but hope that you keep coming back once in awhile,you are loved and appreciated by many of us here. I am going to see you perform tonight, been waiting for six months, I am so excited.

    So funny! The photographer was laughing and it really did look more like a tickle battle than a fight. Adam posed with a smile for several pictures and the guy wouldn't go away or respect when he was asked to leave them alone. He had enough pictures and wouldn't take no for an answer. So, I guess after three months of touring and finally getting a really relaxing day off, Adam just had enough. He is the most patient celeb, kind to his fans, always giving yet another photo. This guy must have really pissed him off.

    it should be illegal for paps to press charges against their targets. PS. hilarious photos. The diguise (which didn't quite work) killed me. Adam is adorable.
