Diaz's deadly weapon
13:30 22 September 2006
Cameron Diaz has accused a photographer of assaulting her with a deadly weapon - his car.
The 'Charlie's Angels' actress filed a police report on Wednesday (20.09.06) claiming the paparazzi recklessly drove his vehicle towards her and her boyfriend Justin Timberlake.
The incident occurred just after midnight when the couple spotted a photographer hiding in the bushes as they were leaving a friend's Hollywood home.
Citing Cameron's report, Los Angeles police officer Marjan Mobasser said: "A photographer hiding in the bushes attempted to snap a photo of them.
"Ms. Diaz and Mr. Timberlake both then chased him a short distance.
"At this point the photographer got into his vehicle and drove toward Ms. Diaz and Mr. Timberlake, causing Ms. Diaz to jump out of the car's way."
Mobasser added: "Ms. Diaz felt the photographer was trying to hit her with his car so she filed for assault with a deadly weapon."
Cameron's attorney, Marcy Morris, issued a statement saying: "The increasingly aggressive conduct of the paparazzi continues to be a matter of grave concern.
"There is currently a criminal investigation pending regarding the conduct of the photographers involved in the incident. "Therefore, it would be inappropriate to comment further at this time."
No arrests have been made and no suspects have yet been identified regarding the incident.
