“I looked over the video in the camera,” Officer Williams wrote. “I did see a quick glimpse of Martinez’s hand on Howard’s throat. But I cannot say if he put it there on purpose of by accident (sic) during the physical confrontation. I did hear Martinez state ‘I have a gun.’”

The officer also says that Martinez lunged at Howard – even while being escorted away from Hulk’s property.

It all took place in Clearwater, Florida where  Hulk is very popular and people close to Martinez say they believe the former wrestler is getting more than the benefit of the doubt here.

Officer Williams notes in his preliminary report that it appear the photog is on private property. “It looked like he was hiding behind bushes and on other private property,” he wrote after watching the video.

“I explained that Howard did not want to press charges and that the video on his camera is considered evidence. I told him that since Howard did not want to press charges that I would not seize the video, but it would be in his best interest not to air that video.”

In the end, the photog took off with the video, Hulk got married and sources close to Martinez say he believes he got a raw deal by cops protecting a local celebrity.
