Two freelance photographers who snapped pics of Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen's weekend wedding in Costa Rica say they were shot at by the supermodel's security personnel. INF, the photo agency that hired Rolando Aviles and Uri Cortez, said yesterday the two men "narrowly escaped death" when bullets shattered the back windshield of the duo's Suzuki jeep then hit the vehicle's front window. "Nobody was hurt, but it was very close," an INF spokesman told us today. Brady and Bundchen got married Saturday at the Brazilian beauty's seaside compound in Mal Pais. (The pair also got hitched at a Catholic church in Santa Monica Feb. 28.) Guests this weekend included family, friends, and Patriots owners Robert and Myra Kraft. 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?" Police in Mal Pais are investigating but it's not clear yets if anyone will be charged in connection with the shooting. The wedding, meanwhile, was a discreet affair, conducted at sunset on the terrace of Bundchen's abode. Pics show the 28-year-old bride in a long white dress and holding a bouquet of white orchids. Brady can be seen wearing a gray suit and vest with white pants. In one picture, he's holding his son John and another shows him chatting with Kraft. People.com reported Brady had hosted a bachelorís brunch for his entourage at the Milarepa hotel while BŁndchen entertained female friends at her home.

And, no doubt, the Patriots will somehow get an extra draft pick out of this. Probably because poor widdle Tommy was so traumatized.

Gotta admit, part of me says "maybe the paparazzi needs to learn a lesson or two."

Of course, then I keep wondering if it WAS pacman, what would Good-deal do?

I'm not even sure it would have to be a Pacman or a Chris Henry. We'd probably see a different tone if it were Ryan Clark or Ike Taylor.

Although I honestly believe that POS Gooddeal would be all over this if it were ANY other player in the NFL, nothing will come of this.

It will simply be ignored.

Hell, it wouldn't surprise me a bit if Der Kommissar himself was part of the wedding party.

He'd give the Patriots an extra pick, duh. Or a couple of automatic wins by forfeit. Do we still not get how this works?

I agree, but that would require the media and the NFL be consistent.

As details emerge, it looks like Brady's goons wanted an altercation:

GISELE AND TOM'S GOONS FIRE AT PHOTOGRAPHERS

By DOUGLAS MONTERO

Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen's armed bodyguards opened fire on paparazzi at the couple's nuptials in Costa Rica, blasting out the windows of a pho tographer's SUV, and just missing the shaken lensmen, the fotogs said yesterday.

Just moments after they talked their way out of an argument with Brady's irate buddies and hired goons, a bul let smashed through the rear window of the SUV and then through the front windshield, just missing the heads of the two fleeing photo journalists on Saturday night, they said.

"Thank God I'm all right. At that moment, I thought I was going to die," lensman Rolando Aviles told The Post.

"The bullet went between us, missing our heads," Aviles said. "If the bullet been a little more to the left or right, it would have killed one of us.

"I said, 'They're going to kill us,' and that's when I hunched down to cover myself."

"When the glass broke, that's when my friend started driving really fast."

Aviles said he and colleague Yuri Cortez, both veteran photographers hired by the INF photo agency, had permission from Gisele's neighbor in Santa Teresa to shoot the wedding ceremony from a vista about 300 feet away from the ceremony.

Brady and Gisele were married in Los Angeles County in February, and were renewing their vows on Saturday. Just as the photographers started snapping, the couple's bodyguards spotted them and chased them, according to Aviles.

The pair ran back to Cortez's Suzuki SUV, parked about 500 feet away in dense brush.

They split up as they ran away, and by the time Aviles said he reached the SUV, his colleague was already there speaking to a Brady bodyguard.

Aviles quoted the guard as saying, "Tom Brady just wants to talk to you. It's OK, nothing's going to happen.

But when the photographers accepted the guard's invitation back to Gisele's house, they were swarmed by three members of the wedding party and five hired goons dressed all in black.

The New England Patriot quarterback's best man berated the photographers and wanted to provoke a brawl, the lensmen said.

"Take a picture of me now, you f- - -er! F- - - you," Brady's righthand man, whose name was not immediately known, screamed, according to Aviles.

"He was very angry. It looked like he wanted to attack us," Aviles said. The photographers lied their way out of the tight spot -- saying they hadn't taken a single frame.

The QB's reps said Gisele had an exclusive picture deal with a Brazilian magazine.

As the lensman drove away, Aviles said he spotted one of Brady's men pull a pistol.

Seconds later, a bullet shattered the back of Cortez's SUV, struck a front windshield wiper and then bounced back into the cabin, landing in between the terrified shutterbugs.
"I thought this was going to be my last job," Aviles said.

The fotogs said they found a .38-caliber slug in their SUV's front cabin.

Both cameramen were still in disbelief yesterday that they almost died for snapping wedding photographs.

"I couldn't believe it when I realized what they had done," Cortez told the photo agency's Web site, INF Daily.

"I could have lost my life for the sale of some pictures that Gisele didn't want published. Are they insane?"

Reps for Brady and Bundchen did not immediately return calls for comment.

That's the point. This is all Gisele's bodyguards, not Brady's, because that would mean Brady would have to get punished, and that is not okay by the NFL. I don't know if it's white or if it's because he's a Patriot, but it's inconsistent and bullcrap.

I'm sure this time it will be "Well, you can't know what someone would do!" Which is true, but if that's the case it should have been what was told to Pacman.

well the only thing is, her bodyguards dont have to answer to or have anything to do with Brady. the only reason they are even in the same sentence is the fact that for whatever reason Gisele saw something in Brady (im pretty sure she makes jus as much if not more than Brady so it cant be the money).

ill admitt that shooting at reporters was extreme but the only way the NFL takes action is if somehow they can prove that Brady is the one that pays the bodyguards and not gisele.

But then again we all know how good the patriots are at cover-ups, so im guessing Kraft learned his lesson and burned any tapes of the incidents if there were any

When I read that he had a "bachelor brunch", I started to question if he actually got married.

I can picture it now...
A bunch of stuck-up entitled jet-setters in expensive clothing milling about on a patio over looking some exotic locale, sipping something that they would call "exquisite" with the pinkies in the air, comparing golf scores. It's enough to make one want to puke...AAaahhhh, the Beautiful People...:sissies:.
