Jay-Z & Beyonce's Bodyguard Charged In Paparazzi Scuffle

After getting a camera tripod thrown at him by paparazzi, Beyonce and Jay-Z's' bodyguard Julius is getting charged by Croatian police. The three paparazzos involved in this scuffle with Julius and Jay held a news conference in the county of Dubrovnik - Neretva. They said they filed criminal charges because of physical attacks, threats, and damaged property.

Thanks to one of YBF's Croatian readers (who knew?), we had some of the local news stories translated to English. Here's basically what went down... The rest of the story after the cut....

Dragan Banovic (photographer) said that the bodyguard pushed him three times in the leg. Although the PU of Dubrovnik - Neretva requested to prevent the departure of bodyguard Julius from Croatia and asked for the names of people who participated in the incident, they did not take any action against Jay-Z or Julius. The photographers were angry about the decision that the bodyguard was allowed to stay in the country. More importantly, TV cameraman and a group of reporters recorded the famous couple going to Dubrovnik restaurant Gil's. But what the video does not show is that Julius allegedly tried to stop the recording by putting his hand on the camera lens and struck Banovic's foot three times. Allegedly, he broke the photog's light on the camera, struck him in the thigh, and then the camera shattered on the ground. We also hear Julius was about to throw the tripod back at the pap, but Jay stopped him, so it was thrown into the water. And he yelled some obscenities to the paps. TMZ confirms that the Carters' bodyguard is being charged with damage to personal property. Drama!

boot: Stupid nigger body guard. He should be thankful that people want to take pictures of ole country ass beyaki and the camel! He would not have a job otherwise…. typical hood nigger acting up in a foreign country where people don’t worship empty headed talentless people… what is camel famous for again??? At least beyaki is slightly talented. IGNORANT FOOL, SHUT THE HELL UP AND GO READ A BOOK, SAVE A LIFE, GET A TRADE, CONTRIBUTE SOMETHING MEANINGFUL NOT YOUR STUPID AND UNEDUCATED RANT AND RAVES.

Sorry but I can not see

Sorry but I can not see "catching charges" for anybody!! I wonder if Mr & Mrs Carter are going to take care of his legal fees?? I really don't think they're paying dude enough to go through all this hassle... guilty or not legal fees are not cheap!! Yeah good luck with that!!

Gail: i think the bodyguard

Gail: i think the bodyguard and the photographer were both to blame; I’ve seen the unedited version of this altercation on beyonceworlddotnet. I’ve also seen video of Julius, the bodyguard, getting out of pocket on other occasions; he’s too ready to pounce on people. I saw him physically push the are of a Beyonce fan when the fan was just waving. the papparazi are out of control, period, but It would be pretty foolish for any of us to side with Julius just because we like Beyonce. yeah julius is paid to do so..

OHHH THE BODY GUARD's picture

the paps threw the tripod at

the paps threw the tripod at the body guard first, that is when he went to throw it back and Jay stopped him. Then is threw it into the water. that much of it is caught on tape. So that should go on with that. If he is found guilty this will be about them being American. That is all that i have to say. It is ok to take pictures, but when you get into their personal space that is a problem. Know one on here can say it wouldn't.

Honesty: I can’t even think of anything to say about this situation……Celebs should just accept the fact that they will always be photographed and recorded as long as they are in the public eye. You don’t like it stay at home!The Paps are like leeches, but it is a for them. I can’t imagine having someone follow my every move. Ever since I saw that special on TV how the Paps camp outside Britney Spears house for hours and I do mean HOURS just to get a shot, I was shocked!! UGH!! That’s the hollyweird life for you though i agree! if u want to be in the entertainment business so bad, u have to be ready to give up ur privacy

Apparently he saw Beyonce and Julius sharing an hotel room together and they were holding hands in the backstage area in CHI-TOWN.Poor jay-z..

its good to see bey and jay

its good to see bey and jay getting some r/r . but what i don't understand is this bey is beautiful, jay is her husband, and theres the body guard okay they are in another country. they are not hiding are ducking for a dam soul so why not just let the pap snap until they get tired. now when they got ready to go and eat and the paps are blocking their way, are trying to keep them from leaving then thats a horse of a different color. but having your picture comes with the territory and jay and bey both knows that very well. so what was the big dam deal, i mean the paps got to close you just keep moving turn your head and show them your fine booty and keep walking. jay should have put his arms around bey and they walked slowly to their destination snug as a bug in a rug and never do nothing but look at the paps.we all know that the paps are crazy as hell.

Help me somebody: I knew that wasn’t going to be a happily ever after.Hey YBF pplz, I need some help. I’m 8 months into pregnancy, and I still don’t have a name for my baby. The problem is it’s legs are always closed or positioned wierd so we still dont know the sex. My fiance never helps me with picking out a name, so I need some help with names that start with a D or a T. Any suggestions??? OOooo a bundle of joy on the way :-) I can't think of anything though. Not off top of my head. Sorry! Did you read some baby name books or anything. Don't get nothing to crazy with a crazy spelling. LOL!!! Think about the child's future. They have to do applications :-)

Im RockingThatThing LIKE!: Jay-Z ‘ s reactions to an unauthorized Photo in South Africa … Last week This is appalling. Please send this to everyone you know……he MUST be held accountable for this. Is this the way we want our South African women to be treated??? How would he feel if his mother/sister/or his precious Beyonce were treated in this fashion? A room full of ‘men’ and nobody does anything!? This is surely going to taint his image. They said that he tried to pay the lady off quickly so that it didn’t get out…Guess they were too late… Huh? Am I the only one who has no clue what you're talking about????? I mean, that came so out of left field.... I swear, there are a lot of nutty folks out there.

fgfgdgdgd: JUST BECAUSE THEY ARE PHOTOS DOES NOT MEAN YOU CAN BEAT THEM UP. PLEASE, IF NOT MEDIA - WE ALL WOULD BE JAY Z, BEYONCE WHO ? THEY HAVE TO THANK THE MEDIA THAT BROUGHT THEM ALL THE DOUGH THEY’VE GOT. IF YOU DON’T LIKE PAPS, YOU MIGHT AS WELL BECOME A SCIENTIST AND FOR ONCE DO SOMETHING POSITIVE - PERHAPS DISCOVER SOMETHING Last time I checked Jay-Z and Beyonce's careers landed in the MUSICIAN department so they make their money off of their music. Not pictures that are being taken of them to be sold to a lil magazine because they make no money from that-the magazines do. So if their were no paps we'd still know who they were because their job doesn't require them being photographed while on vacay. Paps don't make no celeb except "Socialites" because they have no real job other than taking pictures and being seen. So if these were Socialites your comment would make more sense.

Nicole: @fgfgdgdgd From

Nicole: @fgfgdgdgd From what I can decipher from your horrendous grammar, spelling and sentence structure I can see you agree with the paps. Normally I would too as celebrities should come to expect them to take their pictures HOWEVER, you can clearly see the bodyguard holding the tripod of which THEY THREW AT THEM (mind you while they were already on the boat not harming anyone). I saw the video also and the bodyguard wasn’t touching anyone - all he was doing was putting his hand up and a little ass flash light up to block their shots of Beyonce and Jay-Z. It’s totally ridiculous and just like these leaches called paparazzi to rile up celebrities to get a good retaliation to get money out of them instead of working for what they have like regular people do. GOOD THAT YOU CAN DECIPHER, I SAID I WASNT THERE, BUT I VE SEEN OTHER THINGS AND I SEE YOU WENT SO MUCH INTO DETAILS (PERHAPS YOU ARE WRITING A DISSERTATION ON THAT TOPIC ) BUT SINCE YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT IT , IT WAS SAID THAT THE TRIPOD WAS THROWN AFTER THE ABUSE. AND I SAID I WASNT THERE, SO I CANT CONFIRM BUT LETS BE OBJECTIVE AND TRY NOT TO SUPPORT JUST ONE SIDE, BECAUSE THIS STORY RIGHT HERE LOOKS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT FROM OTHER STORIES. THATS IT.

Julius did the right thing by

Julius did the right thing by throwing the equipment in the water. The papz can't charge him for damaged property if they assaulted him with it. It's like a robber charging someone they attempted to mug with stealing their knife---it doesn't make any sense. Besides at the end of the video the papz continued to throw stuff at him.

Seriously? you are delusional and have TOO much time on your hands to be fabricating this type of information. You can tell by just watching Beyonce interviews, candid videos, or reading articles, that Beyonce is head over heels in love with her HUSBAND, Jay Z. Take your BS elsewhere, like Media take out, how about that.
