Police recommend charge against paparazzo in Ryan Reynolds hit and run

Vancouver police are recommending a charge of intimidation against a paparazzo accused in a hit and run involving movie star Ryan Reynolds. 

Police say a 52-year-old Richmond resident is in custody in relation to the incident, which happened on Friday in the parking lot of Vancouver's posh Shangri-La hotel.

The VPD says the Vancouver-born movie star got into a confrontation with the photographer before the incident.

The actor suffered a sore knee and a sore back, but was back at work on the set of his new film, Deadpool.
