Photogs Covering Perry-Brand Wedding Fend Off Bodyguards & Tigers!

  • News photographers claim that Russell Brand's bodyguards tried to get them killed by TIGERS.

Snappers from respected news agencies like Associated Press, Reuters, Agence France-Press and the Hindustan Times were in a Jeep following two vehicles shuttling members of the Perry-Brand wedding around Ranthambhore National Park when two of Russell's security guards jumped out and began throwing punches at the photogs and their driver. "The cameramen claim their car keys were subsequently swiped by the bodyguards, essentially leaving them for mincemeat in tiger country." Ranthambhore police have issued a statement, which reads:

"The photographers have filed an official complaint of assault and all witnesses, including Mr. Brand, will be questioned about this. Police officers will be going to the hotel tomorrow to advise the alleged perpetrators of an arrest and that a case has been filed. It is certainly not a good thing because an Indian photographer has been beaten up in his own country by a foreigner. The photographer would like an apology and if the perpetrator is willing to apologize then we can take back the case."
