A photographer who was staking out a Malibu home that pop star Britney Spears was believed to be visiting was shot in a thigh by a pellet gun Saturday night, authorities said. Brad Diaz was among 15 to 20 photographers waiting 200 feet away from the home in the 2000 block of Carbon Mesa Road when he was struck by a pellet about 7:50 p.m., said Lt. Steve Smith of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. "They put a county Band-Aid on him and transported him away in an ambulance," Smith said.

A car filled with teenagers plunged off an embankment and rolled over several times early Sunday, killing a 17-year-old girl and a male companion and leaving two others seriously injured. Police blamed the crash on drinking. The California Highway Patrol said the 1999 Acura was traveling northbound on Malibu Canyon Road just before 1 a.m. when it veered off the road and rolled down a 50-foot embankment.

If you're driving around Malibu on Pacific Coast Highway and you see a 15,000-pound piece of bent steel valued at $300,000 in the middle of an open field, you can thank Carl Schlosberg. Introduced officially to the public on July 1, the Summer Sculpture Exhibition in Malibu was developed by curator Schlosberg, who has been a fine-art dealer for 33 years and currently resides in Century City and New York City.

Malibu has offered a carrot to the movie makers who made the city famous, but it's also waving a big stick. The City Council approved new rules that for the first time allow film shooting after 10 p.m. -- but only with the unanimous approval of nearby residents. That and other rules were passed Monday night after a roiling feud over filming that pitted neighbor against neighbor and threatened to blow the cool of this legendary beach community.

Malibu's Broad Beach homeowners face fines of up to $15,000 a day for hiring bulldozers last month to scoop sand off the public beach and pile it onto private property in front of their oceanfront homes, under a lawsuit filed Wednesday by state officials. The suit, filed on behalf of two state agencies by California Atty. Gen. Bill Lockyer, alleges that a homeowners group illegally took sand from the state-owned beach and converted it to private use.

The turf battles over Malibu's oceanfront tend to be as predictable as the spring tides as property owners and beachgoers contest for control of the sand. This year, the tussle over what is public and what is private has taken a surprising turn with property owners bringing in heavy equipment to scoop up tons of public beach and pile it onto their property.

The northbound lanes of Pacific Coast Highway were closed Tuesday by a landslide between Coastline Drive and Topanga Canyon Boulevard, but traffic was still getting through, Caltrans officials said. The northbound lanes will remain closed until further notice, but temporary concrete barriers were placed in the median to route all traffic to the southbound lanes, which will allow one lane of traffic in each direction.

Malibu Canyon Road reopened Saturday after being closed for almost a week because of storm-related rockslides and mudslides. It had been closed from Civic Center Way to Piuma Road while authorities cleared a big pile of rocks, boulders and other debris, said Menerva Ariki, spokeswoman for the county Public Works Department.
