"This guy was most definitely a professional paparazzo," a spokesman for Foster said, at the time, of the incident.

"He tailed Jodie all the way from the movie theater to the valet. This guy's behavior was completely inappropriate, and the police report is a fabrication of what happened."

Tony Jr. is not a professional paparazzo and learned he had never attempted to sell a photograph before this event. did pay him for the photos of the injuries after he turned down multiple requests to sell them earlier.

After three months of unsuccessfully trying to get a statement from Foster, the Los Angeles Police Department handed the case over to the District Attorney's office, who dropped it due to lack of evidence.

Tony Jr. told "These photos show Ms. Fosters' nail mark as she dug her nails into my arm.

"If my mom would have done this to her child she would be in jail right now and charged with assault, however, Ms. Foster is free to go.

"I just want the world to know and see what she did and to know that what she did is not okay."
