Metallica front man James Hetfield lashed out at members of the paparazzi in Uruguay over the Christmas holiday. Hetfield allegedly began hurling stones at the photogs after they failed to leave his family alone.
The rocker was on vacation with his wife, Francesca, and their kids in the Punta Del Este region of the country when he reportedly lost his temper with local photographers tailing him as he took a moped ride with his 11-year-old son Castor.
Jumping off the bike to confront the paparazzi, he exchanged words with them and then began to pick up rocks and started throwing it in their direction.
Photos of the incident have since been posted online.
