THIS is the moment a photographer was allegedly floored by Margot Robbie's Brit pal after a row outside a restaurant.

Pedro Alberto Orquera claims he was left with a broken arm while lying bleeding on the floor following a street brawl.



The incident allegedly happened when Wolf of Wall Street star Margot, 32, and Brit model and actress Cara Delevingne left a Buenos Aires restaurant at 3am on Sunday.

Mr Orquera, 61,tried to take pictures as they got into an Uber.

A scuffle is then said to have broken out, which led to the arrests of two British film-makers, Josey McNamara and Jac Hopkins.

Footage shows a man dressed in black walking along the pavement as another, with a white top on, runs up behind him.

During a brief chase, the man in black appears to be kicked two or three times before he falls to the ground.

He narrowly misses falling under a car that comes to a halt at a zebra crossing.

In documents lodged with a city judge and prosecutors, Mr Orquera, stated: “Ms Robbie — who I could identify — touched the shoulder of one of her security personnel and indicated with her finger towards me.

"It was then that several people began to beat me up and the chase began.

"I felt that they managed to hit me and I got knocked down to the pavement with such speed that if I had fallen headfirst they would have killed me.”

His lawyer, Matias Morla, told The Sun last night that it was possible that Margot could be charged.

He said: “Pedro and other witnesses say that Margot pointed at him when she was behind the car and saw the photographer.

“She sent them to hit him. She shares in the blame because she was directing them to the photographer.

"We are going to ask she become a defendant and co-participant.

"She should not be considered a witness but one of the defendants who has to give evidence.”

Mr Orquera took photographs as Cara, 30, and Margot left the exclusive Patagonia Sur restaurant.

McNamara, a film producer and business partner of Margot, and Hopkins, a key grip on the Aussie star’s upcoming Barbie movie, were arrested at the scene.

They spent Sunday in custody.

On Monday morning they covered their faces with rugs as they were bundled into a car to be interviewed by prosecutors.

In an interview from his hospital bed, Mr Orquera described the incident as a “brutal” and “cowardly” attack.

'COWARDLY ATTACK'

He said: “They tried to take my camera to delete the pictures that I had taken.

“I started running away from them because they were hitting me.

“While I was running from them they kicked me hard so my camera went up in the air and I fell on the floor and injured my arm.

“I was bleeding an awful lot. I was losing a lot of blood. In a few minutes the police arrived.”

Last night, it was not known whether Cara and Margot — who left the scene before police arrived — were still in Argentina.

McNamara and Hopkins are said to have told police Mr Orquera was “responsible for his own injuries” as no consent was given for photos.
