Note to paparazzi: Tarantino will fight your ass.

Quentin Tarantino was in Park City, Utah this week serving as part of the grand jury for this year's Sundance Film Festival. Stopping in a nearby Starbucks for a hot caffinated beverage, he walks back outside and notices a guy holding a video camera is following him. The result is the following YouTube video below:

When Quentin said, "But if that was off, I would be whooping your ass up and down this street," I believed him. The Kill Bill director is no stranger to off-screen fisticuffs. In his insightful book Down and Dirty Pictures writer Peter Biskind recounts how Tarantino once beat the crap out of Natural Born Killers producer Don Murphy for talking smack about the director to several reporters. Tarantino had promised Murphy a beatdown, and when the two ran into each other at a Hollywood resturant, Murphy had the audacity to smirk and remind Tarantino of his vow, so sure enough Tarantino delivered. Harvey Weinstein had to pull his star director off of Murphy before Tarrantino got himself arrested. That story alone makes Biskind's novel worth buying, especially now that you can purchase used copies for pocket change online
