Some satisfaction against photographer who assaulted Ava Phillippe's party
The paparazzo who assaulted children, a mom and two Disney employees at Disney’s California Adventure when Reese Witherspoon took her daughter Ava and friends to celebrate her sixth at the theme park on September 2nd was charged on Friday with child endangerment and multiple counts of battery.
Photographer Todd K. Wallace allegedly hit a 5-year-old child with his camera, shoved another child out of the way, assaulted one of the children’s mothers and two Disney employees who tried to prevent him from approaching Reese and her kids. He also became verbally abusive towards the group, using language inappropriate for children, though I’m not sure if that necessarily breaks any laws.
The photographer is no stranger to violence and crime. According to state corrections records, he was convicted of and served four years in the pokie for second-degree burglary and receiving goods by fraud.
Last April, Reese filed a police report again paparazzi who allegedly boxed in her car and prevented from entering her property but prosecutors declined to file charges, based on lack of corroborating evidence through witnesses and videotapes. At the time, Reese told the New York Times, "There seems to be no repercussions for the behavior. It’s starting to feel chaotic and lawless."
