Police: 'Photographers Are Not To Blame For Madonna Horse Fall'

Police who helped MADONNA after she fell from a horse on Saturday (18Apr09) have confirmed photographers weren't to blame for the accident.
The singer was treated at Southampton Hospital on New York's Long Island after taking a tumble at the home of her friend Steven Klein.
Madonna's representative Liz Rosenberg blamed a paparazzo for the fall, claiming the snapper stunned the Material Girl's horse when he appeared in front of her.
She said, "The accident occurred when the horse Madonna was riding was startled by paparazzi who jumped out of the bushes to photograph the singer, who was visiting friends on Eastern Long Island over the weekend."
Photographer Thomas Hinton poured scorn on the claims, insisting he was the only snapper at the scene, and left before Madonna fell.
And now local police Sgt Herbert Johnson reveals there was no mention of a photographer in the police report Madonna filed.
He tells TMZ.com, "There is no mention of photographers. It's a matter of spin control that went out of control. If they felt there was something else, they would have written 'paparazzi' in the form."

How can the police know. Why do the horse react in this was, I must ask. Suddenly the fotographer jumps against Madonna on the horse. And the horse reacts and it in reality happens so, Madonna fals of the horse. The police can not put such a conclusion in the situation, and determin what happened,it is too false. The famous singer is a victim and the photographer performes the violent riot. Martin Barslev, painter.
