According to TMZ, it all started when the male Kardashian, who was out and about in Miami with a group of friends, saw a pap snapping away at him from across the street. Although the pap was certainly a respectable distance away, Rob thought it would be a gas to pretend to get mad. Suddenly, without warning, he suddenly charged at the man like a raging bull. Unfortunately, the pap was not amused. Either Rob's performance was a little too convincing or those damn paparazzi are totally bereft of senses of humor. Whatever. The pap thought Rob was going to beat him up, and he "ran away screaming for help." When he ducked into a smoke shop, Rob made the even worse mistake of following him to try to explain that he was only joking. That's when the cops, who had been watching the whole thing, decided to intervene. The result was that Rob Kardashian was led away in handcuffs and only narrowly escaped being arrested.
Oh well, looking on the bright side, Rob might be the Kardashian who can actually actÂ—sort of. Also, he can take comfort that at least no one flour bombed him.
