Guard accused of keying car on movie set

A bodyguard on the New York set of actress Jennifer Aniston's new movie allegedly keyed a photographer's car, topping weeks of building tension, police said.

Police said they are looking for the man who was assigned to protect The Bounty's male lead, Gerard Butler, after witnesses reported the vandalism on the 2003 Infiniti during the weekend, the New York Post reported Tuesday.

The vehicle's owner, James Devaney, who works for WireImage, said the incident followed continuous squabbling between the photographers and bodyguards, the Post reported.

I was surprised that the community had my back, said Devaney, who said didn't see the crime occur. They saw a guy going up to my car with a key scraping the side.
