(Newser) – Chris Brown might want to think about a nice Volvo in the wake of his latest run-in with the paparazzi, which CNN reports ended with his black Porsche Turbo smeared against an LA wall as his rep says he was "ruthlessly pursued by paparazzi." Brown was uninjured in the accident yesterday afternoon, which the Beverly Hills PD calls a "solo, non-injury traffic collision," and requested that the car be towed from the scene. TMZ has a photo here.

From Team Breezy: After two cars cut Brown off, "the occupants jumped out, with cameras, and aggressively approached his vehicle. In an effort to remove himself from the situation, he began to back down an alley, at which point (he) was cut off by two additional vehicles." The incident comes after a paparazzo was killed trying to get a shot of Justin Bieber last month.

Whether you like Chris Brown or not, the real story here is the relentless pursuit by photographers and an individuals invasion of privacy. Seems to me that State and/or federal laws need to be enacted before we see another tragedy like Princess Diana. Just saying...
