North Haven Man Tells Paparazzi To Get Off His Property While Photographing Matt Lauer

Dec 12, 2017 4:16 PM

A North Haven man reported to Southampton Town Police that paparazzi following former “Today Show” host Matt Lauer’s vehicle came onto his property—and disregarded his requests to get off.

When Mr. Lauer drove to the man’s house at 8:30 a.m. on Monday, December 4, to pick up the man’s son, paparazzi followed and ended up in his driveway, according the 52-year-old man. The paparazzi stayed on the street side of the property’s fence, but the man told police that the street side of the fence is also his property.

When the man asked the paparazzi to get off his property, he told police, they did not respond.

Police said they advised the man that there was little they could do if the paparazzi stayed outside his fence. They also advised him that he could stop having Mr. Lauer pick up his son for the next couple of weeks, “or he could simply ignore the press/paparazzi for the few minutes they are in front of his residence, as long as they stay on the street side of the fence and don’t destroy his property,” according to an incident report.

I'd love to know why Matt Lauer dropped off his son at the home of an angry 51 year old man.

SlimeAlive and his strange ideas are exactly the reason a story like this should never be published. Gonna go ask the "51 year old angry man" SA? He somehow suspicious to you, protecting children? Has Greg Wehner ever been to North Haven? About the size of my thumb. Every single person there now knows exactly where this is. Just gross.
