The Daily Telegraph reported the former federal opposition leader and MP threw a punch at photographer Ross Schultz, injuring his wrist and then fleeing with [Schultz’s] camera …
Mr Latham emerged from a Hungry Jacks restaurant, where he had been having lunch with his two sons Oliver and Issac, the paper said.
Mr Schultz … said Mr Latham started screaming obscenities and ripped the camera from his shoulder.
The former Labor leader then drove off in his car with the camera, which he is believed to have smashed in the shed of his Glen Alpine home.
Latham runs his very own smashing shed? Excellent! (The guy should really stay away from fast-food joints. They angry up his blood.)
UPDATE. Editorial in the Daily Telegraph:
It’s nice to see Mark Latham has lost none of his raffish charm. On the first anniversary of his resignation as Labor leader, we attempted to catch up with the great man. Unluckily for our photographer, and particularly his camera, Mark Latham caught up with him first.
UPDATE II. Latham emerges from his shed:
Last night he handed the shattered remains of the camera, worth thousands of dollars, in to Campbelltown police.
UPDATE III. A January prediction, written last year:
Panic grips Sydney’s western suburbs after reports that Mark Latham has broken free of his keepers and is roaming loose.
UPDATE IV. Lew in comments:
Good to see he’s managed to overcome his aversion to “junk food”. In June 2004 he proudly announced his “Ban junk food advertising on children’s TV” Election policy. Now Mark and the kiddies are found chowing-down at Hungry Jack’s where the burgers are said to be better.
UPDATE V. Hand over the money, Mark:
The Daily Telegraph intends to seek $12,000 from former Labor leader Mark Latham after he allegedly seized and destroyed one of its cameras … “It looks like he spent a good hour hopping into it with a claw hammer, it’s incredible,” [editor] Mr Penberthy said.
