A Miami paparazzo has filed a battery complaint against Adam Lambert after the two were seen grappling with each other on the beach, TMZ reports.
According to the police report, the victim claims Adam grabbed his backpack "where the camera was placed" and "wrestled [the photog] to the ground forcefully." The photos of the scuffle, however, show the victim holding his camera in his hand.
"Eeew paparazzi killed my peaceful afternoon on the beach! #howisthisok?" Adam tweeted on Thursday. Then he wrote of his unusual outfit: "Hahha the photos are hilarious !! Lol please everyone forgive me for that hat. - I was attempting a disguise- clearly failed. Hahah"
On Friday Adam took to Twitter again to defend himself: "Battery? Nope. I attempted to grab a camera, no punches were thrown and no one was on the ground.... It was literally harmless. If embarrassment is a crime- thats all I'm guilty of."
