    DCA Paparazzo Found Dead

    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.

    After Wallace failed to show up at a bail hearing in December,

    ewwwww

    Sad to hear of a death - regardless of who it is. But to think he may have been there since December... yikes.

    eh, I'm sure he just OD'd on something after all of it happened, after all, most of Hollywood (especially trash like him) is "on something"

    Always sad to hear of premature death.

    And if that's karma, shesh. Not saying this guy was anything less than a Grade-A jerk based on the DCA story, but still... I think it's still kind of sad and a bit creepy.

    What happened?

    Was there only trouble to identify because he'd been dead for a while?

    Even though this guy was a creep...kind of sad that someone would be gone for a month before anyone would notice.

    Yes, we talk and talked about it...

    My first thought is.... Why does this sound like a CSI episode?

    I live 2 miles away from Disneyland if Walt would've built it at Riverside and Buena Vista.

    Whoa. Umm. Yeah... First of all, he lived in Brentwood...

    As for this whole thread, it smells like this one's headed for The Litter Box.

    I have nothing to say except that I wasn't aware that paparazzi had a singular form. I'd just never thought about it before.

    And now I'm going to be obsessing on odd plurals....like culs de sac or mothers in law....or like Lorelai on Gilmore Girls...panscake.

    Living in Brentwood doesn't mean that you don't do drugs. (Nor does it mean that you do!). It probably means he had some money, since paparazzi pictures can be worth a lot. Yeah. that's all.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...
