Cameron Diaz has filed a police report charging a photographer with assault with a deadly weapon for allegedly trying to hit her and boyfriend Justin Timberlake with his car. "On Sept. 19, just after midnight, Cameron Diaz filed a report with the LAPD," officer April Harding tells PEOPLE. "The incident happened on the 1600 block of King Road in Hollywood." According to the actress’s report, "Diaz and Justin Timberlake were leaving a friend’s home when a photographer hiding in the bushes tried to take a photograph of her," Harding says. "They both then chased the photographer for a short distance. "The photographer then got into his car and drove toward both them, causing Diaz to jump out of the car’s way. She felt the driver was trying to hit both of them, and so she filed the report. She’s alleging assault with a deadly weapon, with a vehicle." Harding continued, "No arrests were made. We currently have no suspects, and the investigation is ongoing." On Wednesday, photo agency X17, for which the photographer in question was working, posted a statement on its Web site saying that the photos were taken on a public street and that "the pictures show … at least two people verbally and physically assaulting" the photographer. In the statement, the agency says the photographer was not trying to run Diaz over with his car but was in fact "attempting to leave what he perceived to be a dangerous situation for him and when he tried to do so, Ms. Diaz and at least one other member of her entourage stood in front of his car in an attempt to entrap him." According to the agency, "The photographer is currently in the process of filing a complaint against Ms. Diaz and Mr. Timberlake."

Can’t say I blame him.
