Did Jodie Foster Assault a Teenager?

June 11, 2010

If you try to take a picture of Jodie Foster, she might just beat the living crap out of you. Seriously.

A 17-year-old boy is claiming that he was assaulted by Jodie Foster after asking for a picture outside a Los Angeles-area mall.

According to a police report obtained by RadarOnline, the incident occurred May 29 at The Grove in L.A. The alleged victim's father claims his 17-year-old son approached the Foster for a photo but she "came after him [and] poked him in the chest" and "pushed and shoved him leaving scratches and bruises on his arm."

Foster has spoken out against these allegations and is saying the reports are a “fabrication” of what actually when down. "This guy was most definitely a professional paparazzo," Foster told 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."
