BEYONCE and Jay-Z's bodyguard is being investigated after being involved in an altercation with photographers.
The couple are on holiday in the coastal city of Dubrovnik in Croatia but their romantic evening out in the town on Tuesday (18Aug09) was marred when one of their minders tussled with snappers as he attempted to shield the pair from pictures.
Footage of the incident shows the bodyguard, named only as Julius, wrestling with snappers in an alleyway as the couple leaves a restaurant.
Jay-Z is heard calling after him, "Let's go, let's go, don't worry about it" and "stop stop stop".
The tape then cuts to a scene as the pair and their entourage are boarding a boat. One of the snappers is seen throwing a piece of camera equipment at Julius, which he then tosses into the sea.
At a news conference held in Dubrovnik on Thursday (20Aug09), three photographers alleged Julius made threats, physically attacked them and damaged their property in an incident not seen on the short video.
Police spokesperson Marija Genero has now confirmed the local authorities are investigating the claims.
