DiCaprio's Bodyguards Clash with Photogs in Israel

Mar 13, 2007

Israeli police arrested two members of Leonardo DiCaprio's security team and several photographers were slapped with a restraining order after an altercation during a visit to a holy site in Jerusalem on Monday.

"Two of his [DiCaprio's] security guards were arrested by police after being involved in a fight that broke out," Israel Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld told local newspaper Haaretz.

DiCaprio, 32, and his girlfriend, model Bar Refaeli, 21, were taking a private tour of the Western Wall tunnels, next to Judaism's holiest site, the Western Wall, in the Old City of Jerusalem, Haaretz reports.

According to Rosenfeld, a crowd of photographers was waiting outside the tunnels for the couple to emerge when the trouble occurred.

"They were leaving and were heading to their van," a source close to DiCaprio tells PEOPLE. "Paparazzi were everywhere. The photographers were jumping all around them and surrounding them. It was not a safe situation."

DiCaprio was photographed with his head down and face obscured by a black hat, surrounded by guards amid the melee. The couple were bundled into a waiting white van, which sped from the area.

According to the source, two bodyguards stayed behind and had an altercation with the paparazzi. Some photographers then told the police they'd been assaulted, the source says.

The bodyguards were questioned by police and then released, says the source, adding, "The police then decide to slap this group of paparazzi with a 30-day restraining order to stay away from Leo and Bar."

The couple encountered paparazzi at another stop on their visit. "They also visited the Yad Vashem [Holocaust memorial] museum, which was closed off to other visitors," Eran Swissa, a journalist for Israeli newspaper Maariv, tells PEOPLE. "Herds of photographers tried to take photos but the couple didn't let them."

Refaeli's mother Tsipi said in a statement, "We are saddened [by] this incident and [that] instead of ... being proud of the fact that Leo came to see the Jewish heritage the photographers are dealing with unimportant issues. In spite of that, we are having a wonderful time and so is Leo."

The couple, who have been linked for nearly a year, had arrived in Israel amid much fanfare by the Israeli media
