Edwin W. Merino, a paparazzao from Los Angeles, was arrested on Tuesday for stalking Jamie Lynn Spears and her fiance. Merino paid $1,143 and was released the same day. He is due in court next week. FOX News reports:
Authorities in Liberty, a small town in southwest Mississippi near the Louisiana border, said Merino wouldn’t leave the pregnant Spears and her fiance, Casey Aldridge, alone. Merino denied the accusations in a phone interview Wednesday with The Associated Press. He said that he was about 200 feet (60 meters) away from the couple using a long lens when he was arrested at a gas station….Merino said he had little luck taking pictures of the couple and was preparing to leave the area….”The one picture I got was kind of by luck,” he said. “I got lucky when I saw them at Wal-Mart when I was buying deodorant.”
So basically all you have to do to get pictures of Jamie Lynn Spears is hang out at Wal-Mart. And why wouldn’t you? Rednecks love Wal-Mart. In fact, the one by my house just put in a “dragging a guy behind your truck” lane for busy shoppers. How convenient!
