Hewitt And Cry

by | 9th, March 2004

‘BEATING up photographers is fast becoming a celebrity sport and, given how irritating the paparazzi can be, not one of which we wholly disapprove.

‘Who wants a piece, then?’

Some stars, such as actor Sean Penn and Coldplay’s Chris Martin, have made something of a career out of snapping at the snappers.

But while most are happy to use their fists against the shutterbugs, James Hewitt is pictured in the Mirror attacking freelancer Toby Cohen with a brolly.

The Royal love rat, who the paper helpfully reminds us had a notorious affair with Princess Diana, was arrested and held for four hours following the incident.

Another cameraman Greg Brennan explained: ‘Toby stepped forward to take a picture and the next thing we knew Hewitt lunged at him with the end of his golf-sized [sic] umbrella.

‘We were stunned.’

Not too stunned, however, that they couldn’t take pictures of the incident and sell them to the highest bidder.’
