Atlanta reliever John Rocker bumped into a television cameraman yesterday, about 31/2 hours before a game against the Cardinals in St. Louis. The cameraman, Tom Stasiak, and reporter Frank Cusumano, who both work for KSDK, both said the minor collision was intentional. The station played the incident prominently during its early evening newscasts, running footage of Rocker in street clothes apparently going out of his way to cause the contact. The Atlanta reliever then said "excuse me," on his way down the tunnel to the Braves' clubhouse, Cusumano said.

Sylvester Stallone, Mister Tough Guy on the screen, has a few rough and tough words for a TV cameraman who filed a lawsuit claiming that Sly roughed him up. The actor called cameraman Cesar Santos a "dirt bag trying to extort money. " "This man is a liar," Stallone said by telephone Saturday from Puerto Rico, where he's in the final days of shooting his new movie, Assassins. Santos claimed in a $550,000 federal civil suit filed Friday in San Juan that he was stopped on the set that Monday, and assaulted and harassed by the actor and his four bodyguards.

SERVING UP BANANAS laced with marijuana to rhesus monkeys on an island in the Caribbean - all in a day's work for Jon Greene. Well, not exactly, but Jon was the cameraman recording the effect of this unusual repast on the unsuspecting primates as part of a study. Jon, who spent most of his life behind a camera, mostly with Philadelphia's Channel 10, had been hired for this project by a researcher from the Dorothea Dix psychiatric hospital in Raleigh, N.C. It involved lugging heavy cameras onto the island off Puerto Rico, tramping through the jungle, dodging an irate ape that threatened to attack, and setting up the cameras to record the pot-eating monkeys' reactions compared with a control group that got a regular monkey diet.

Jake Gyllenhaal, who usually exudes an assured, thoughtful, suave aura, emanates creepy, oily, scheming menace as a newbie TV cameraman in Nightcrawler , a savage satire about the news media from Bourne Legacy screenwriter-turned-director Dan Gilroy. The DVD is due Tuesday from Universal Studios. Gyllenhaal stars as Lou Bloom, an off-kilter if not downright unbalanced petty criminal with violent tendencies who sees the world through the prism of self-help books. (One imagines he spent years in a jail cell reading them.)

FREEHOLD, N.J. - A video posted on YouTube a few days before Christmas 2011 shows a young man striding purposefully into the woods as a cameraman asks what he's about to do. "About to go beat up this bum," the man in the video says. And that's exactly what he does, punching and kicking a homeless man in the face and bloodying his nose before wishing him a Merry Christmas. That videotaped assault led to a three-year prison sentence Friday for the man shown carrying it out. Taylor Giresi, 22, whose lawyer said he has an IQ of 74 and numerous psychological issues, told Superior Court Judge Anthony J. Mellaci Jr. that he didn't intend to hurt David Ivins.
