Rocker Tommy Lee has been hit with a civil lawsuit after allegedly assaulting a Florida photographer last year (12).

Freddy Hernandez claims he snapped a picture of the Motley Crue drummer while he was soaking up the sun in Palm Beach on 7 July, 2012, when Lee lunged at his camera.

The paparazzo alleges he suffered multiple injuries as a result, and on 22 February (13) he filed legal papers at The Circuit Court Of The Fifteenth Judicial Circuit seeking unspecified damages, according to PRWeb.com.
