Actress tosses laptops, injures seniors

Denise Richards reportedly hurt two senior citizens when she threw a laptop off a balcony.

Actress Denise Richards has apparently come up with a new use for computers--paparazzi protection.

DVD shot

Richards, 35, accidentally injured two elderly women yesterday after hurling two photographers' laptops off a hotel balcony in Canada, according to the Associated Press (and every celebrity gossip site on the Web). Richards was up north shooting the film Blonde and Blonder at the River Rock Casino Resort.

Richards, reportedly peeved that a couple of unauthorized photographers tried to snap her picture, pushed their laptops over a ledge onto two unlucky passersby below. Oops. Paramedics were called to the scene and said the injuries did not appear to be serious.

"Based on the actions of the paparazzi, they are lucky their laptops were the only things that were thrown off the ledge," Richards' publicist, Nicole Perez, said in Los Angeles on Thursday, according to the AP.
