After OC money manager Danny Pang was released from federal custody in Santa Ana Wednesday and sent to home confinement on $1 million bail, he took exception to photographer Jonathan Alcorn's camera. "Pang yelled something about he was 'finished' being photographed and that he had 'let' us get pictures already, then got physical before a man with him stepped in," Alcorn posts at his blog. Bunch of photos over there. Pang was charged this week with violating currency reporting laws, and the SEC accuses him of defrauding investors out of hundreds of millions of dollars.
