Feel the Pang!

Troubled financier Danny Pang decided to vent his frustration on my camera today (*April 29) as he walked outside a federal court in Santa Ana, California after he was released on $1 million bail and placed on home confinement with electronic monitoring device. Pang was accused by the Securities and Exchange Commission on Monday of defrauding investors out of hundreds of millions of dollars and arrested by FBI agents Tuesday on suspicion of violating currency reporting laws.
Pang yelled something about he was "finished" being photographed and that he had "let" us get pictures already, then got physical before a man with him stepped in. I didn't say anything except that it was a public place and kept on shooting. He was holding his shoulder for a while before his car finally arrived to pick him up. For the record , my camera and lens made it thru fine.

Wouldn't it be cool if photographers had bodyguards?

Sorry you had to go through that, but that first one is an awesome shot though!
