Famous Dad Joe Jackson Was Almost Arrested in Las Vegas When He Flipped Out on A Tourist Who Wanted a Photo

Joe Jackson did not want his photo taken


Famous Father, Joe Jackson, was non-to-pleased when a tourist with a camera tried to snap a candid picture. 


A Fan Denied

You would think Joe Jackson would be flattered when anyone wanted to take a picture of him … but he flipped out when a Vegas tourist tried photographing him, and it almost landed the famous dad in the pokey.


The Low Down

Here’s the low down.  Joe was at The Palms Thursday when a hotel guest recognized the famous dad and aimed his camera in Joe’s direction.

When police finally arrived both parties had cooled down and were ready to let the incident drop.

Jackson allegedly went ballistic, screaming “Don’t take pictures of me!”  The guest claims Joe lunged at him, making contact.


Previous Incidents

Joe almost got more publicity than the time he announced he signed a new rap artist days after Michael died … because the guest called security and demanded to get Vegas cops involved.


Tempers Cooled

But Joe got a reprieve … by the time cops arrived the guest cooled down and decided not to press charges.
