Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s bodyguard is in hot water after a scuffle with the paparazzi in Croatia.
TMZ.com reports that the hired muscle has been charged with assault and destruction of property for throwing a TV reporter’s tripod into the waters of the Adriatic Sea.
The charges stem from a complaint filed by the Croatian reporter following a run-in late Tuesday night as Jay and Bey were leaving a restaurant.
Video of the incident shows the paparazzi following the celebrity couple as they walked to their boat, and their bodyguard was trying to shield them from photographers. He only launched the camera equipment off the side of the ship after one reporter tried to hit him with it.
Now police are trying to get a hold of the bodyguard as they continue to investigate the incident, which lasted nearly four minutes before the Carter’s sped off in their boat.
