Jesse James Legal Trouble Increases
West Coast Chopper Jesse James — now most famous for cheating on America’s sweetheart Sandra Bullock — is in yet another vat of hot water.
While James seeks treatment at an Arizona rehab center, trouble is brewing back home in California. James was cited Thursday for vandalizing a paparazzo’s parked car near his bike shop last week, E! News reports. The incident has also resulted in a stalking citation for the photographer.
Long Beach Police Sgt. Dina Zapalski explains that James’ citation is equivalent to an arrest, and city prosecutors can choose whether to press charges.
Photographer Ulises Rios and James traded citizen’s arrests last Thursday in a fight outside West Coast Choppers. Rios’ attorney, Mark Hashaulter, says that video footage shot by his client shows James confronting him and Rios’ SUV sitting there with two slashed tires, a dented door and a scratched window. The lawyer says he has turned over a copy of the tape to detectives from the LBP’s violent crimes unit.
