Reese Witherspoon has been involved in a terrifying paparazzi fracas.
The actress was enjoying a day out at California's Disneyland with friends and family when a photographer allegedly assaulted two theme park employees while trying to get a picture of the star.
Todd Wallace, 44, who was later arrested, reportedly became violent when a female member of staff tried to usher Reese's group away from him.
Police Sergeant Rick Martinez said: "He got close to the group and became aggressive.
"Several small children with the celebrity in question became frightened of the paparazzo."
According to Martinez, the shutterbug "pushed the employee with his entire body, not just once but numerous times."
The cameraman was also accused of assaulting a second member of staff.
Wallace has been charged with misdemeanour assault and battery and is due to appear in court next month.
This is the second time Reese has had a run-in with the paparazzi.
In April, the star was left fearing for her safety after being cornered in her car by photographers.
Reese eventually managed to drive away but was followed by six cars in a high speed chase.
When she arrived home, one car even parked across her gate stopping her from entering the house.
