UPDATE: According to tmz.com, Jay-Z’s and Beyonce’s bodyguard has been charged with a crime for last night’s tripod-tossing fight with a local TV reporter in Croatia.
Here’s what they’re saying:
Croation law enforcement tells TMZ Jay’s bodyguard has been charged with destroying personal property and assault — based on a complaint filed by the reporter who got into a scuffle with Jay and Beyonce’s entourage late last night.
Video of the incident surfaced on the ‘net earlier today showing the whole confrontation — including the part where the reporter throws his camera sticks at Jay’s hired muscle … and the hired muscle throws the sticks into the Adriatic Sea.
We’re told the incident occurred at around 1:30 AM in Dubrovnik after Jay and Beyonce ate at a local restaurant.
Police say they are trying to track down the bodyguard so they can talk to him — the investigation is ongoing.
The Carters were trying to have an intimate dinner in Croatia when they got into a scuffle with some paparazzi hounds who wouldn’t leave them alone. Jay yelled to them “We’re on vacation!”, and bodyguard Julius flipped out on them reportedly while the paps threw a camera stand tripod and other objects at them.
