Sam Worthington and Lara Bingle are in the news for getting into an argument with the paparazzi.

Sam who was driving in Sydney in with his wife Lara and son six-month-old son, Rocket Zot, pulled over on the road and took a picture of the photographer?s car number before calling the cops.

According to a report by Daily Mail, the 39-year-old took pictures of his photographer’s licence plates before calling NSW Police, with no less than six officers later attending the scene.

In a statement he even said that, ?They could be planning to kidnap my child,’ he fumed in the street, saying the paparazzi had not identified themselves.They don’t say who they are, at least in America they say “Hey, I’m paparazzi” here there are no laws. I don’t know who these guys are. They just appeared outside my house.?

Detective sergeant Peter Wirth from Rose Bay command confirmed police were called to the scene. ?Some celebrities were being followed and got a bit frustrated, so they called police,? he said. Mr Wirth said officers attended the scene but no charges were laid, reported News.Com.Au.

Sydney Morning Herald?s report states that a NSW Police spokesman confirmed that no one was arrested and no charges were laid after police attended a call from a 36-year-old man (Worthington) and his partner (Bingle) who alleged they were being followed and harassed by a group of professional photographers while their young son was in the car.

Photos of the incident were being shopped around by agencies on Tuesday afternoon. Seven News then aired footage of the altercation.

“This is provocation bordering on paedophilia because you would take those photos and put them on the internet and if you don’t know that that is akin to that then I don’t know what kind of humans you are. You’re disgusting, you’re creepy, this is ridiculous, it’s not on, Worthington said.
