'One Critical Patient'

3/6/2015 2:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Local police and fire were dispatched en masse to the Harrison Ford crash scene Thursday afternoon and once they got to the scene, they deemed the legendary actor "critical."

TMZ has obtained the calls made by first responders as they rushed to rescue Ford after his plane crashed at the Penmar Golf Club shortly after takeoff from a nearby airport.  

While Ford's condition was later upgraded, in the moments following the crash he was classified as "critical" on more than one occasion.

He's expected to make a full recovery.

David Charvet

Legal War Over with 'Bachelor' Creator

But Dogs Still an Issue

3/6/2015 1:44 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0305-charvet-dogs-tmz-wm-2b

David Charvet's feud with his neighbor, the creator of "The Bachelor," has just made its way through the court, and the neighbor scored a victory ... but we found out the real culprits may be canines. 

TMZ broke the story ... David called the cops last fall on his neighbor Mike Fleiss after Fleiss planted a speaker on his property and directed it at David and wife Brooke Burke's house, blaring sounds of nonstop barking dogs. Fleiss was charged with disturbing the peace.

A little digging on our part has revealed that David and Brooke's two German Shepherds -- Velvet and Thunder -- have had a history of running loose in Malibu's exclusive Serra Retreat.

Last July a neighbor reported to Animal Control that the two dogs were running loose and charged a home owner. Last February, Animal Control received yet another complaint that the dogs were off leash and aggressive toward another neighbor.

One neighbor wrote an email to Animal Control saying, "This SOB Charvet's dogs are a threat to my children." And we're told multiple neighbors have complained the dogs barked incessantly. 

As for Charvet's feud with Fleiss, on Thursday a judge dismissed Charvet's request for a restraining order. Also on Thursday, a judge heard Fleiss' disturbing the peace case and agreed to dismiss it outright in May, provided he stays clear of Charvet until then.

Charvet had no comment ... but sources tell us his restraining order request was dismissed because the D.A. advised him to drop it. We contacted the D.A., who says he never spoke with Charvet about the restraining order. Charvet also claims all of the complaints to animal control came from Fleiss.

The plane was craned onto a flatbed truck at Penmar Golf Club Friday ... and moved to a nearby hangar where NTSB investigators will continue combing over the remains of the PT-22.

As we previously reported ... the 72-year-old actor suffered multiple gashes to the head Thursday ... but his rep says the injuries are non-life threatening.

Nick Gordon

Checks into Rehab

After Dr. Phil Taping

Nick Gordon checked into rehab for drugs after ranting he might kill himself during a taped appearance with Dr. Phil.

Bobbi Kristina's boyfriend sat down with Dr. Phil in Atlanta earlier this week for what he thought would be an interview -- but we're told it was more like an intervention organized by Phil and Gordon's mother.

During the taping, Gordon talked about committing suicide if Bobbi Kristina didn't pull out of the coma. We're told Gordon's mother complained her son was severely depressed and abusing drugs.  

It's unclear where Gordon is getting treatment and for how long.

Prescient Flying Advice

Way Before Crash

3/6/2015 10:48 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Harrison Ford has always known the most important part of flying is the landing ... and we have the video to prove it.

Who knew the video would be so telling ... back in 2013, Colin, our D.C. photog. asked Dr. Jones for an aviation tip ... and he gave us a short, but right on the mark answer. 

Following Thursday's near-tragic crash, Ford is being hailed by some as a hero for avoiding disaster and landing the plane on a golf course.

Lindsay Lohan

Still Cleans Up

... Real Good

3/6/2015 10:08 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0306-lindsay-lohan-akmgsi-01One thing's for sure, Lindsay Lohan looks way better in a cream colored coat and bell-bottomed black slacks, than jailhouse orange ... which she keeps narrowly dodging. 

Lohan was walking around London ... where she's been flying under the radar since an L.A. judge ordered her to perform 125 additional hours of community service.

This is the best we've seen her look in a while -- however, time spent putting together one's outfit and applying one's makeup ... does NOT count as community service

It's unclear if LiLo's aware of that.

Crash Video

Eyewitnesses: 'I Hope He's Gonna Make It!'

3/6/2015 6:54 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Three guys who were near the Santa Monica Airport freaked out as they watched Harrison Ford's plane go down seconds before it crashed.

It appears at least 2 of the men were movers, who were blocks from the airport when they looked up and saw Harrison's WWII plane gliding in ... with the engine stopped.

It's as if they're trying to will the plane to the airport ... rooting it on as it makes the glide.  

Listen closely to the audio ... you never hear an engine noise, which reinforces their notion that the plane had no power.

VIDEO Of Takeoff

40 Seconds Before Crash

3/6/2015 6:14 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained video of Harrison Ford's WWII vintage plane, rumbling down the Santa Monica Airport runway ... just seconds before Ford realized something was seriously wrong with the aircraft.

A pilot who was taxiing to the runway spotted Ford's plane and shot the video, NOT because Harrison was piloting the plane. The other pilot just thought Ford's plane looked awesome ... he had no idea Ford was the pilot.

The pilot who shot the video says he waved at Ford, who returned the wave and then accelerated for takeoff.

The video stops just before Ford's plane became airborne. The other pilot had no clue of the looming trouble.

Chris Brown

Wanted a Baby for Years ...

With Karrueche!

EXCLUSIVE

0305_chris_brown_karrueche-tran_baby_tmz_composite_2Chris Brown's been jonesin' to be a daddy for a long time, and tried to get Karrueche Tran to be the baby mama -- but before there was a bun in the oven, she wanted a ring on her hand.

Sources close to the couple tell TMZ ... Chris and Karrueche had the baby talk frequently for at least the last 2 years -- and she was down to have a tiny CB ... IF he would make her an honest woman.

We're told KT feels strongly about marriage before kids, and stood her ground with Chris. Although he stepped up with a couple of diamonds last Christmas -- he couldn't close the deal ... since they weren't engagement rings. 

Karrueche was also worried about derailing her budding acting career.

Even though she wasn't ready yet ...we're told Karrueche still thought she and Chris would have kids together in the future. As one source put it, she's "devastated he did this" with a side chick.

Like the lady said ... "One can only take so much."

Scott Disick

Bails Last Minute on UK Clubs

... Via Twitter

0307-scott-disick-tmz-02

Scott Disick continues to piss people off all over the U.K. -- this time by bailing on two club appearances at the very last minute ... and the clubs only found out by checking Twitter.

Disick was supposed to appear at  Southampton's Switch night club and Bournemouth’s Cameo club, but instead jetted off to Paris to hang at Fashion Week with Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, Kris Jenner and Kendall Jenner

Switch night club blasted him, saying ... "Scott Disick has let us know via his manager's Twitter at 9.30pm that he cannot come tonight due to 'unforeseen circumstances.' The real truth is he's gone to Paris to party and ignore his fans."

Switch continued, "These famous for nothing celebs have too much money and don't realise [sic] they are letting down venues, ruining peoples reputations and livelihood, and their fans." 

Disick has two more club appearances scheduled in the U.K. for Friday night -- and both clubs say Disick's people have assured them he'll be back from Paris in time.

Disick is already in hot water for his behavior at an appearance earlier this week. The organizers plan to sue him, claiming his poor attitude and general disinterest cost them a lot of money.

Steve Francis

Chain Recovery Engineered By Rap God

3/6/2015 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0305_j_prince_steve_francis_gettySteve Francis doesn't just have the Sauce Twinz to thank for the return of his chain -- it was ultimately engineered by J. Prince ... one of the most powerful men in hip hop, TMZ Sports has learned. 

We broke the story ... the NBA legend was chain snatched by some dumbass at a Sauce Twinz concert in Houston last weekend. 

Now, we've learned ... Francis has some powerful friends in Houston -- including Prince, who not only runs Rap-A-Lot Records, but is known in the rap community as a guy you just don't mess with. 

Also, the Sauce Twinz are managed by YEMG ... the management group owned by Prince's son, Jas

Sources connected to Prince tell us once he learned the chain went missing ... he put out word, "The chain must be returned."

That's when the Twinz and their pals went into "super recovery mode" to track down the culprit. 

And surprise surprise, the chain turned up a short time later ... and will be reunited with Francis. 

BTW -- you may remember J. Prince as the guy who issued a "courtesy call" to all of Drake's enemies including Diddy and Suge Knight ... warning them to back off Drizzy, another Prince associate. 

Bottom line -- it's good to know J. Prince.
