Surfers brawl with paparazzi to protect film star

Strange but true...a gang of surfers came to the aid of film star Matthew McConaughy this Saturday at Malibu, when photographers started to take pics of him surfing. I guess being stalked by paparazzi is a hassle, but there are worse things in life to have to deal with....perhaps a traditional waxing of the car windscreens might have sent the message rather than slapping them about?

Then again having a personal longboard body guard posse to step in whenever I got a bit of grief might be fun :)

A brawl broke out on the beaches of Malibu Saturday afternoon when a group of surfers attacked paparazzi who were snapping pics of Matthew McConaughey

One shutterbug told police that a mob of surfers approached the photogs near Paradise Cove where the often-shirtless actor was surfing with friends. The surfers demanded everyone stop filming and taking pictures, but when that didn't happen, things got physical.

"[The surfers] formed a semicircle in front of his camera and they said [McConaughey] didn't want him to film," Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department spokesman Steve Whitmore told the LA Times. "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 are investigating the melee.

McConaughey's people have yet to comment.”
