CSI Star Lashes Out at TMZ Photog

Gary Dourdan from CSI Beats Up TMZ Photographer

Well, this is one way to get your name in the papers.

CSI star Gary Dourdan went apeshit on a TMZ photographer outside Hyde, beating him violently after mistaking him for someone else. You can check out video of the event here. According to TMZ:

Clad in leather biker gear, Dourdan violently grabbed our photog outside Hyde, who the actor had mistaken for another guy, and slammed him to the pavement several times, sending his head bouncing into concrete over and over again — all while his camera continued to roll.

The chaos began after Dourdan pulled up to the club on his Ducati motorcycle, and shouted at the photog to “get that f**king camera out of my face!” The photog obliged, pointing the camera to the ground — but Dourdan’s rage continued to grow, and the cameraman kept the record button on just in case something happened. Moments later, something happened.

As Dourdan launched his attack, other paparazzi can be heard screaming at Gary, desperately trying to make him stop. Moments after the assault, Dourdan threatened our photog again, saying, “I know all the cops around here, they’re my friends.”

Not very cool, Mr. Dourdan. If you don’t want photogs in your face, don’t fucking go to Hyde.

  • This isn’t the first time he’s gone kwazy on TMZ photogs. He’s a “B” List star at best. The Black blogs pretty much ignore him ’cause he’s never met a Black woman he liked. Stay your ass at home and kick rocks. This is the only way for you to get any press? Sad.

  • hey whats up??? well u people have no life im sure a lot of u have beat people up the only difference, is that he is someone famous. if i was getting confuse by someone else and the person kept tell me in my face and had the camera i would done the same thing he did so he was right to punch that person. A person is a person no matter how famous the are and paparazzi dont care what they do to a get a snap shot so ta bueno que te sacaron la madre i actually enjoy it for once a paparrazzi getting punched. ANd CBS sucks for taking warrick no one is gonna watch csi: no more there is no sara no warrick who next grissom if u dare hell no no one is gonna watch it no more so i hate cbs

  • leave him alone he iz gettin tired of papparazzi in his face. Anywayz do any 1 no 4 sure who dat chick iz next 2 him cuz i seen her b4 in person

  • Leave the guy alone. Why can’t he just ride his motorcycle in peace without having a damn camera in his face? And I don’t think Dourdan’s character is killed off, they just want you to make you think that. They better bring him back otherwise I will not watch CSI either. I mean look at Robert Downey Jr. All the trouble he has gotten into with drugs and the industry still wants him in their movies. So, if he can get some slack, I think Gary should also. He needs the right people to help him with his addiction. KEEP GARY DOURDAN ON CSI!

  • This might be a strange query, but I’m a vegan, so I’m looking for contact lenses which do not have any animal “element”. I gather that many lenses contain perhaps ingredients which have been tried out with monkeys, or are made from animal products. Does anyone know of any lenses which are completely artificial?
