Jodie Foster Accused Of Battery (UPDATE: She Responds)

UPDATE: Foster has responded to People:

"This guy was most definitely a professional paparazzo," the actress's rep tells PEOPLE. "He had a large camera bag and 1000mm telephoto lens. He tailed Jodie and followed her all the way from the movie theater to the valet."
...
Foster, however, says the teenager had been following her for a while. "He crowded her and her two young children and took photos of them the whole time," says the rep... "This guy's behavior was completely inappropriate," says the rep, "and the police report is a fabrication of the incident."

A 17-year-old boy has accused Jodie Foster of battery, Radaronline.com reports.

According to a police report, the incident happened May 29 when the boy tried to photograph Foster.

"Vict while at The Grove saw susp and began to take pics of susp with his camera then walked to the valet area of The Grove. Susp followed vict, poked him on his chest, grabbed vict by his left arm causing visible injury."

The alleged victim's father told Radar, "Jodie Foster attacked my son at the parking lot at The Grove. Jodie pushed and shoved him leaving scratches and bruises on his arm."

The father contends that Foster's behavior horrified her sons, ages 8 and 11.

"She came after him, poked him in the chest and said, 'Do you even have a mother you slime ball?'" "He didn't mouth back at all and was scared of her," he said. "At one point Jodie's son even came over to my son and apologized. Her kids were really embarrassed."

Foster has been relentlessly hounded by paparazzi as she keeps her personal life very private. She reportedly broke up with her partner Cydney Bernard after 14 years together in 2008 and reportedly split from new girlfriend Cindy Mort last year.
