Update: Charges Dropped Against Jay-Z’s Bodyguard

As previously reported, Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s bodyguard was charged with assault and destroying the personal property of a photographer while the celebrity couple was vacationing in Croatia, yesterday (August 20).

According to TMZ, the charges have since been dropped. Apparently, the man will not have to face any jail time, but will have to pay a small fine instead.

Footage of the bodyguard and the European paparazzi getting into a scuffle surfaced online on Wednesday (August 19). In the clip, Jay’s hired muscle repeatedly warns the photographer against shooting the power couple  before finally losing his cool, hitting the photog’s camera and throwing his tripod into a body of water moments later.

Jay is currently prepping the release of The Blueprint 3 on September 11. –Max G
