Gun Threat

12/15/2010 2:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The photographer who crashed Hulk Hogan's wedding screamed, "I'm packing a gun" during the brawl with a security guard ... TMZ has learned.

According to a source at the wedding ... security guard and family friend Ron Howard (not that one) approached the photographer and asked him to leave.

Sources say Howard told cops the photog -- Robert Martinez -- put his forearm on Howard's throat -- and then yelled,  "I'm packing a gun." That's when the fight really started ... and someone at the wedding called cops. Clearwater PD confirms a gun was mentioned during the altercation.

And there's this ... we're told Martinez's video camera was rolling during the fight -- and cops watched his tape when they arrived. 

As TMZ first reported, no one was arrested ... however, we're told cops want to talk to Howard one more time about the incident.

This same guy, Robert Martinez, had just gotten into a scuffle with Derek Jeter's father a couple days before down here in Tampa. He filed a police report saying Derek's dad pushed him and he had whip lash now. He's been making the rounds down here in Tampa. He's a lowlife. He's in the wrong town, Tampa doesn't like paparazzi. This isn't Miami.

Isn't it about time to call it a day Mr Belea? I've been a fan since your days in Denver's AWA. You and your family have embarrassed yourselves, and anybody connected with you. What has to happen, does somebody have to die for you to see how ridiculous your persona has become. I imagine it's hard to walk away from all the ass-kissers, and beautiful women, but c'mon man, respect yourself at least, and walk away while you still can. Dignity and ones self-worth are far more valuable than money, and loose women.
