Christina Applegate's Husband

DETAINED BY POLICE

Over Alleged Pap Fight

10/14/2013 6:31 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details



Christina Applegate's rock star husband was detained by police in Studio City yesterday after allegedly roughing up a photog ... but the Porno for Pyros bassist insists the pap crossed the line by taking photos of his child.

The video begins with rocker Martyn LeNoble being approached by police on a street corner in broad daylight -- he was detained, and patted down.

LeNoble -- who was not handcuffed and not arrested -- then begins to tell his side of the story ... insisting a paparazzo (not a TMZ guy) tried shooting photos of his wife and 2-year-old daughter at a birthday party.

LeNoble says, "I went outside to talk to him and he got physical with me ... he wouldn't back off."

At one point, LeNoble says the pap challenged him to a fight in a back alley -- saying, "Let's see what kind of man you are."

Eventually, LeNoble was released and sent on his way without further incident ... though it sounds like he may try to take legal action against the snapper.

Celebs are clearly drawing a line in the sand about kids and it's creating a lot of issues, because there are some photographers that are not backing down.

As far as the pap is concerned, law enforcement tells us the guy isn't pressing charges.

OK, TMZ, since you are a big purchaser of "pap" photos of children, what is YOUR POLICY about posting pictures of celebrities' children? Seems to me you should get a release from the celeb before you pay & post. If celebrities won't give releases, then the paps have no incentive to photograph them at private events. Then we can just see the same celebrity children over and over again for those celebrities that like their children to be photographed (and you know who they are!).
TMZ is part of the problem and needs to be part of the solution. Instead it pays the paps for these photos and then runs stories of celebrity-pap run-ins. Heck, TMZ wins no matter what, and then tries to act like they are above the whole thing as mere observers instead of the instigators they are!

If the companies that pay for photos would refuse to pay for any with children below a certain age, problem solved.

If these photogs like taking pictures of children cops ought to sift through their computer(s). Might be a different type of photography going on in their lives.

I love how TMZ always says " It wasn't one of our guys" and than proceeds to tell the story and use the pictures from the same papparozzi that they said they didn't know.

these paps are like nasty little punks on bikes...who do they think they are. It is time for the mayor to do something about this. Harassment charges should be filed against anyone who chases folks down to take pics.

...yet...


Dude, any idea HOW harassing it is to be snapping pics ...of a-kid's-birthday-party ...from some deranged restaurant window.


I've been saying all along, put this on the restaurant no matter who it is.


Tell them to handle the situation - or you leave.


That's what Miley & Peeps did down in Miley's old Montrose hood.


Said "Get rid of the paps or we don't stay..."


Five seconds later three CV Sheriff's cars.


Why should Christina and her Husband have to handle something like this.


Why is it on THEM.

If I was a celebrity, just to really piss off all of the Pap's, I would create a website about them, like T M Z, maybe P M Z, pap mile zone, and I would hire a bunch of nice guy private investigators to follow say 10-20 of the most notorious paps and follow them to their own houses and restaraunts and bars they hang out at and do a bunch of undercover find outs on them and POST them. Make their life really uncomfortable for about 6 months. They would hate that as they probably do some really bad stuff or embarrassing stuff anyhow. That would really send the message.

I bet if a bunch of celebrites pooled their money they could have a really effecting website for this and they could even post the pictures of the pap that bothers them and their names and recruit regular people like the paps neighbors to rat on them on their deeds. Eventually the paps family will draw the line and tell them to get another job, especially id they start seeing their own families on the internet in un-flattering and nosy photos.

I would visit that site to see how the paps "live". Give them a real dose of their own medicine.
