Although it looks like a lighthearted altercation on Franco’s part, the paparazzo has decided to file a report against the 127 Hours actor. According to TMZ, the photographer went to the LAPD on Saturday and decided to file against Franco due to a back injury and equipment that was damaged in the altercation.
