Diego Maradona accused of attacking photographer
BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) - A celebrity magazine photographer has accused Diego Maradona of kicking him in the groin.
"Gente" magazine photographer Enrique Medina filed a police complaint claiming the 1986 World Cup winner attacked him outside Maradona's father's house on Sunday night.
Medina told The Associated Press on Monday that Maradona ran at him "like he was taking a free kick" and kicked him so hard in the groin and upper leg area that he "doubled over in pain."
Maradona has often complained that that the media follow him too closely. In 1994, he fired an air gun at reporters and was given a two-year suspended sentence. In May, he stopped his car on a highway and threw rocks at cameramen following him home from the airport.
