Christina Applegate's Husband

Photog's Footage Shows

Angry Face-Off

10/15/2013 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE



Christina Applegate's husband was mercilessly hounded by a paparazzo -- and may have gotten annoyed enough to reach out and smack the guy.

As TMZ first reported ... Porno for Pyros bassist Martyn LeNoble was briefly detained by police after a weekend incident where a freelance pap (not one of TMZ's) accused him of getting physical.

LeNoble told cops he was trying to stop the photog from shooting his family during their daughter's birthday party -- when the guy challenged him to a fight in a back alley.

The photog's own video backs that up, as he tells Martyn ... "Let's fight over there. Let's go to the alley. Let's see if you're a man."

Look, the paparazzo is clearly being an antagonistic jerk ... but LeNoble does appear to smack the guy's camera at some point.

Ultimately, the pap decided not to press charges ... maybe because he knew just how much he had baited LeNoble.

The world is disgusting    

Um, didn't he say this is going to be all over TMZ?? So, this is a TMZ pap? Anyhow, why do all these paps seem to be foreigners? Do they even have the correct papers to work in the US?

Truth    

In fairness to Martyn he did keep his cool and handled the situation much better than i or your average civilian would have. I guess celebs and such are trained to be cool or be sued especially when you are being 100% antagonized by a creepy pap. Good job Martyn, i commend you!

The photographer was baiting him, he's lucky all he got was the camera pushed away.

THE POS photog is guilty of harassment. He should have been arrested.

If you bought the pictures, he's one of your paps by default. Please don't insult our intelligence by suggesting otherwise.

Here's what I don't understand. If your photogs were not involved in the scuffle, then why are you posting the video on YOUR website?
