Freelance shutterbugs Rolando Aviles and Uri Cortez claim they were targets of gunfire after taking photos of the Gisele Bundchen / Tom Brady nuptials. There’s no truth to the rumor Bill Belichick would like to hire Bunchen’s securty detail to work future Patriots practices. From the Boston Globe’s Mark Shanahan :
The trouble apparently began as the two photographers were returning to their car after using long lenses to shoot pics of the nuptials. The snappers were then confronted by security and “frogmarched” to the Brazilian beauty’s villa, where they were asked to turn over their film, according to INF. (Gisele, it seems, has an exclusive picture deal with a Brazilian magazine.) The men refused and, trailed by security, ran back to their jeep. “As they started the engine, a live round pierced the back windshield…and hit the front windshield directly between the two mens’ heads,” according to a post at INF’s blog. Cortez said he was shocked. “I couldn’t believe it when I realized what they had done,” he told the photo agency. “I could have lost my life for the sake of some pictures that Gisele didn’t want published. Are they insane?”
Plaxico Fantastico merely shot himself in the leg, and he’s currently jobless. Tom Brady might be an accessory to attempted murder, but I sincerely doubt NFL security has anyone en route to Costa Rica.
