The entrance to the Delta terminal where actor Russell Brand was arrested recently in the latest bout of Hollywood versus paparazzi had regained its gritty anonymity on an afternoon last week. Travelers rolled bags over the spot where the actor confronted a throng of tabloid photographers, and a tired-looking man stopped there only long enough to stamp out a cigarette. The swarm of camera-wielding men who surrounded Brand and his fiancé, singer Katy Perry, had moved on — there was Lindsay to chase in Santa Monica, Paris in Las Vegas — but down the sidewalk and around a bend, a small core of photographers, the airport regulars, persisted, their quiet, almost-invisible work dependent on tactics more cat and mouse than mob scene.

Kanye West entered a no-contest plea Monday to a charge of battery stemming from his tangle with a paparazzo last September at Los Angeles International Airport. As part of the deal, the "Yeezus" rapper faces no jail time, instead getting sentenced to two years' probation, 24 anger-management sessions and 250 hours of community service, L.A. Now reported. He must also stay 100 yards away from the victim, videographer Danny Ramos. West was charged originally with misdemeanor counts of battery and attempted grand theft, allegedly having tried to take Ramos' equipment, but the latter charge was dropped in the plea deal.

Former Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards admitted Thursday that he fathered a child with a former campaign videographer, confirming rumors and reports that had been swirling around the former North Carolina senator for months. "I am Quinn's father," Edwards said in a prepared statement, referring to Frances Quinn Hunter, the toddler he fathered with the videographer, Rielle Hunter. " . . . It was wrong for me ever to deny she was my daughter and hopefully one day, when she understands, she will forgive me."

At least 14 people were arrested in connection with a rally for justice for Kelly Thomas on Saturday, after protesters blocked intersections and streets, intimidated drivers and refused to disperse, according to the Fullerton Police Department. About 150 people gathered Saturday morning in front of the Fullerton police station to demand justice for Thomas less than a week after a jury found former police officers Manuel Ramos and Jay Cicinelli not guilty in Thomas' death. Two people were arrested for vandalism, one for assault, one for robbery and 10 for refusing to follow an order to disperse, according to Fullerton police.

At least 10 protesters were arrested in Fullerton on Saturday at a rally demanding justice for Kelly Thomas, with the bulk of the arrests made after a female protester allegedly attacked a reporter and the crowd was ordered to disperse. A videographer who was filming the demonstration for CBS-2 was allegedly struck in the face by a female protester, according to the news station. The reporter sought shelter in the news van as several people surrounded the vehicle. The news crew called 911.  The videographer sustained minor facial injuries but was not hospitalized, said Sgt. Jeff Stuart.  The woman who struck the videographer was arrested on suspicion of assault and two other protesters were arrested earlier in the day for vandalism, Stuart said.

Attorney Gloria Allred filed a lawsuit against Kanye West on behalf of a photographer who was allegedly assaulted by the rapper and blasted celebrities who defend the singer's conduct. In the lawsuit, video photographer Danny Ramos alleges assault, battery, negligence and violation of civil rights. Ramos and Allred said they were speaking out because West had still not apologized for his behavior, and because other celebrities had spoken out in support of West's actions -- which would seem to encourage others to harm members of the paparazzi.

Los Angeles County prosecutors announced Monday that they are dropping the remaining counts against a freelance videographer awaiting a retrial on charges of setting a 2002 wildfire in the Leona Valley so he could get exclusive footage. Joshua Harville originally was jailed in lieu of $1 million bail but was freed after a jury acquitted him of five counts related to the blaze, which charred 5,100 acres. The jury deadlocked on two other arson-related charges.

Billed as "the largest collaboration of media creation in the world's history," "One Day on Earth" is a compilation documentary built for these short-attention-span times. Drawn from 3,000-plus hours of footage from every country on the planet, taken by volunteer videographers on a single day in October 2010, the film is driven by a we-are-the-world connectedness, but remains a travelogue in search of a defining center. FOR THE RECORD: "One Day on Earth": A review of the film "One Day on Earth" in the June 22 Calendar section referred to an image of a Ukrainian bride's painted face.

Reporting from San Francisco -- Two officers involved in Occupy protests have been punished by the Oakland Police Department for violating official policy, after an onlooker's video showed one of them with dark tape obscuring his nameplate, according to court documents. After an expedited internal affairs investigation into the actions of Officer John Hargraves and Lieutenant Clifford Wong, interim Oakland Police Chief Howard Jordan "immediately moved to implement what, in my judgment as chief of police, was appropriate personnel action," Jordan said in a recent written declaration.

One of the most tumultuous weeks in Notre Dame football history ended Saturday with a 28-27 loss at home to Tulsa. Before the game, just before the team captains met at midfield for the coin toss, there was a moment of silence and prayer for Declan Sullivan , and his photograph was shown on the scoreboard. Sullivan, 20, a videographer for the Notre Dame football team, died Wednesday from injuries he sustained when the tower from where he was filming practice toppled over during a wind storm.

The voices on his police scanner lull him to sleep and jolt him awake at night. He sees cash signs in thunderheads. He'll wait hours to witness the coroner putting a body in the back of a van. Fatal traffic accidents are his bread and butter.
