Appeal planned as anti-paparazzi charges dropped

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles prosecutors say they plan to appeal a ruling to dismiss anti-paparazzi charges filed against a freelance photographer involved in a car chase of Justin Bieber.

Assistant City Attorney Ann Rosenthal announced the decision Wednesday, hours after a judge dismissed two counts filed against Paul Raef.

Superior Court Judge Thomas Rubinson said the law aimed at stopping aggressive driving by paparazzi was overly broad, and Raef should not have to stand trial on those counts.

Raef still faces traditional reckless driving charges.

Raef's attorney Brad Kaiserman has said an appeal could lead to the law being struck down entirely.
