Charming Navarro Offers Beatdown to Photog

Dave Navarro was ready to hand out a 12oz. can of whoopass with his lunch yesterday. Anyone want a taste?

TMZ caught Carmen Electra's tatted-up, musclebound ex outside of Caffe Primo in WeHo, where the ripped rock star put aside his lunch for a cordial man-to-man chat with our photog. After teasing the cameraman for turning his afternoon snack into "breaking news," Dave smiled and politely asked, "Have you ever had anyone just f**king lay into you?" Navarro then raised his fists and added, "Would you like to?"

Usually, threats from a swollen man-tank would scare us a little bit, but Navarro was just so damn nice about it. You can threaten us anytime, Dave.
