Former Bond girl in laptop-lobbing outrage

Flying hardware hit OAPs, police allege

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

WSA Former model and Bond girl Denise Richards had a bit of a Naomi moment when she lost her rag with paparazzi and chucked two laptops from a second floor balcony, news agencies report.

The incident took place at a casino near Vancouver during filming for Blonde and Blonder, in which the 35-year-old is starring with Pamela Anderson. Richards reportedly got into a scuffle with two snappers and lobbed their laptops from said balcony. An 80-year-old woman and a 91-year-old woman sitting in the lobby below suffered grazed arms from the flying hardware.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said they were probing the matter, but had not yet decided whether the outrage merited further action.

Prior to the incident, Richards had apparently complained about paparazzi activity on the film set, which is a bit rich coming from someone who indulged in a topless girl-on-girl-on-boy scene in Wild Things and had her not insubstantial charms plastered all over Playboy.

Bootnote

Thanks to all those readers who pointed us in the direction of this piece of tomfoolery. And no, we have no idea what make of laptops they were.
