UPDATE: The paparazzo found out that she likely would have been charged with criminal trespass if she did file a report, so she requested that a note be made regarding the gun being fired and no report was filed.

As for Jon, he didn't deny pulling the gun and defended his actions in a statement to TMZ, saying, "I am licensed to carry a concealed handgun, which I withdrew and used to fire a warning shot AWAY from the paparazza...It is well within my rights under Pennsylvania law when someone is trespassing on private property."
