Let's start with the fact that people still seem to be interested in where Paris Hilton goes and what she ate for dinner. To be precise, the paparazzi still seem to be interested, so much so that when a restaurant valet is impeding their progress as the blonde heiress revs the engine of her red Ferrari before zipping away from Madeo, he gets into it with one of the flash-popping paps.

What ensues is an all-out tangle of angry people on the sidewalk on Beverly Boulevard.

From TMZ:

It all started when a valet and a paparazzo (not ours) ... started yelling at each other ... and the valet straight up BITCH SLAPS the pap right in the face. The pap drops his gear and goes after the valet ... and during the melee, they knock into a man and his date ... who had just finished dining and were waiting at the valet stand.

The male patron flips out ... and unleashes a fists-of-fury style beatdown on the photog ... while his date calmly gets into the waiting car.

After the pap runs out of steam, the patron moves to get into his waiting Mercedes ... but not before yelling out one final taunt.

And, of course, it's all on video. Listen for the slap!
