Celebrity photogs detained and manhandled by security guards

A pair of celebrity photographers were detained and apparently arrested Saturday in a questionable incident that was caught on video.

The photographers were trying to access a reality show wedding at the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes in California when they were forced out by men in suits who apparently were security guards, but were acting as if they were police officers.

The men in suits ended up pushing, shoving, choking and tackling a couple of photographers for “blocking public access at a park,” according to the celebrity website, [__X17 Online.__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/03/photographers_arrested_at_bachelor_wedding-02282010.php)

In the video, however, the photographers are claiming that they not only were invited to the wedding between Bachelor star Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney, but that they had every right to congregate in the “public walkway.”

The men in suits held the men until police arrived.

> *“I’m pissed. Those guys were way out of line. We were not posing a threat to anyone and ABC staged a wedding area that was in clear view from the public property just next to it. If they wanted protection from the media, they should have had the ceremony indoors. I’m not going to let those guys get away with what they did — they way they treated us was inhumane.”*

The photographers plan on suing.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
