Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker clashes with paparazzi
Travis Barker got into a scuffle with paparazzi while on his way to breakfast with his daughter and pals in Calabasas, Calif.
Footage on TMZ.com shows Barker and his friends allegedly spitting at two photographers and videographers and then striking a camera.
A videographer claimed a member Barker's posse took his cell phone and another paparazzo said his tires were slashed.
Cops were called by an unidentified man who says he saw the fight on Sunday begin outside a theater. No arrests were made, but a vandalism report was taken.
According to MTV.com, Barker later tweeted his version of the incident, "When I'm out at breakfast at 8 a.m. in the morning the last thing I appreciate is some photographer threatening me 2 fight while he's 3 deep.
"When I defend myself/my kids that don't make me a tough guy.
"I was outnumbered and threatened so I did what any man would," he wrote.
