A Vancouver photographer has filed a complaint with police after Jennifer Aniston’s bodyguards allegedly threatened him and called his girlfriend a "chink."
Rik Fedyck said the men first confronted him in a Coal Harbour parking lot where trailers were set up for Aniston’s new film, Traveling.
"I was parked … about 200 yards away from the circus and Mr. Pit Bull bodyguard came out," said Fedyck. "He started swearing at me and said … that I (wasn’t) going nowhere."
According to Fedyck the man claimed to be a Vancouver police officer, which he "knew was false." When he managed to drive away the bodyguard, Scott Monico, and a colleague chased him through Gastown until he lost them at an intersection.
The altercation continued half an hour later when Fedyck showed up outside the Hyatt Regency Hotel to again attempt to take a photo of Aniston.
"(Monico) saw my girlfriend in the car … and called (her) a chink."
Fedyck’s girlfriend is from Thailand.
He said Monico, with whom he was nose-to-nose, then said, "Hit me. Make my day. I’ll tune ya."
Fedyck filed a report with Vancouver police yesterday but said all he wants is an apology for his girlfriend.
Aniston’s publicist did not return calls by press time.
