A paparazzo who was charged with battery and child endangerment after pestering Reese Witherspoon and her kids at a theme park last fall has apparently been found dead.
Friends of photographer Todd Wallace said his body was discovered in his Brentwood apartment, according to published reports. Police confirmed that a body was found, but were unable to identify it as Wallace's because of the state of the corpse.
Witherspoon and Wallace crossed paths at Disney's California Adventure in September, where the Golden Globe winner was celebrating her daughter's sixth birthday.
Police said Wallace became enraged when Witherspoon's group declined to be photographed at close range and shoved a child out of the way, while whacking another with his camera in his efforts to snap shots of the actress.
When two theme park employees attempted to restrain the rampaging shutterbug, Wallace reportedly struck them, while cursing at Witherspoon and causing several children to burst into tears.
The photographer was slapped with six misdemeanor charges as a result of the altercation. In October, he pleaded innocent across the board and claimed to have photos and videotape from the incident proving that he did nothing wrong.
After Wallace failed to show up at a bail hearing in December, a judge issued a warrant for his arrest.
The photographer was also scheduled to be arraigned Dec. 27 on a separate felony charge of petty theft with a prior conviction. It was unclear from court records whether he attended that hearing.
