Christina Applegate's Husband

DETAINED BY POLICE

Over Alleged Pap Fight

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.

Why is it that this guy gets detained after one incident where a photog goes after his child, but Kanye West gets off the hook on several occasions where a photog does nothing but asks a question and Kanye goes bat**** crazy and attacks them for no reason?

Another nuto celeb that thinks they are above the law and are f'n entitled to do whatever they want.

Clearly the cops are taking Applegates husband to Jail not the photog lol ...wanna know WHY? Because it is against the law to physically assault anyone.

You learn that in Kinder keep your hands to yourself no matter what anyone says to you. No special treatment!
