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.

Laws really need to change in this country, especially when it comes to paps taking pictures of minor children, as well as how close they can come to a person they are basically "stalking"....why this is allowed in this country is beyond me. They should take on the same laws as they have in the UK!!!

When is enough enough? when someone, or worse yet, someone's child gets injured?

And then the paps can sue the celebrity they are stalking if they lose their cool??

IT'S JUST WRONG!

Mr Applegate handled it perfectly and the pap was antagonizing probably to make a quick buck from a lawsuit. Mr Applegate wasn't havin it, and took it like a pro. I am impressed.

Why don't we see what this creep looks like? What a total s***bag. He should be deported back to his 3rd world country. It's hard to believe that low life people like this exists. What a parasite and pimple on the ass of the world this paparazzi guy is.

I like how the pap says "you are harassing me" as he's shoving camera in the guy's face. What a tool.
