Deputies investigate battery claim against Garrett
AP - Thursday, November 13
LOS ANGELES - Authorities are investigating battery allegations against Emmy-winning actor Brad Garrett in an incident involving a photographer in West Hollywood.
Los Angeles County sheriff's Sgt. Kristin Aloma said the 48-year-old Garrett has not been arrested in the incident that occurred late Tuesday or early Wednesday. She did not provide further details.
A video posted on celebrity gossip site TMZ.com shows photographers shooting and taping Garrett for about three minutes as he left a restaurant. As he approached his vehicle, Garrett briefly chased one photographer, then pushed the video camera of another paparazzo.
In the video, the man immediately claims Garrett broke his camera, although it shows him holding it up like he is still filming. The men exchange words and Garrett appears to challenge the paparazzi to a fight, but no punches were thrown.
A message left for Garrett's manager, Glenn Robbins, was not immediately returned.
Garrett stars in the Fox sitcom "'Til Death." He snagged three best supporting actor Emmys for his role in the comedy "Everybody Loves Raymond."
