Paris Hilton has been accused of attacking a photographer because she "was on drugs." The Hilton hotel heiress was captured on camera in a physical altercation with paparazzi member Billy Barerra on Tuesday (26.06.12).
According to Billy she was worried he had caught her doing something bad.
He told website RadarOnline: "It was 3:30 in the morning, the party was over and I was just walking through the parking lot to go to the bathroom when I see Paris, so I turned on my camera. I wasn't expecting to get jumped! I've shot Paris a lot and am always nice to her."
Shortly afterwards, her entourage -- including heir Brandon Davis -- tried to take the camera from him.
Billy said: "Paris was acting like she was on drugs. I know drugs, I've seen a lot of people on them, and Paris is one of them."
"She attacked me for no reason, like you can see on the video, but what you don't see is that she was hanging off my neck like a piggy back ride as I walked up to the next garage level.
Her friends all started attacking me and no one could see us until we got up to that next level, and that's when I yelled for help and the other paps came running and shot some video."
Later, staff at David Arquette's new nightclub Bootsy Bellows allegedly tried to strike a deal with him.
He claimed: "She said she wanted to negotiate with me, telling me this was bad publicity for the club."
