Call it the rematch ... Michael Lohan and Kate Major had another blowout fight tonight -- but this one ended with her in handcuffs for DUI ... TMZ has learned.
Michael claims they were in a nasty argument at their home in FL when she hit him multiple times in the face.
We're told Lohan called 911, and just as cops arrived ... Kate was fleeing in her car.
She didn't get far -- according to law enforcement, Kate crashed into some bushes near the house ... and was busted for allegedly driving intoxicated.
We're told she's still in custody, and getting booked for DUI ... and possibly domestic battery.
Less than a month ago Kate locked herself in a bedroom, and claimed Michael was trying to break down the door while brandishing a knife.
Police responded to calm the sitch, but no one was arrested ... that time.
Golfer Teed Up On My Ass
And Hurt Me Bad
3/13/2014 6:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
A hot chick is suing Playboy and a golfer for coming up with a cockamamie stunt -- placing a golf tee in her butt and then trying to drive a ball off of it. It didn't end well.
Liz Dickson claims in her lawsuit she was at an L.A. area golf course back in March, 2012 for a Playboy tournament, when she was instructed to lie on her stomach and pose for a photo with comedian and radio host Kevin Klein.
Dickson says a golf tee was placed between her butt cheeks and a golf ball was balanced on the top of the tee. Klein then took a whack, but his swing sucked and he whacked her in the ass.
Dickson claims she suffered severe injuries, some of which are permanent. We're assuming the tee was removed.
She's suing for $500K plus punitive damages.

I Had a Chef in Prison
Best Microwave Cook Ever
3/13/2014 4:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Petey Pablo had a personal chef while he was locked up for his firearms conviction ... but picture less Wolfgang Puck, and more Miss Claudette.
Pablo tells TMZ ... he paid another inmate to cook his meals -- dishes like chicken, pizza, and rice and beans. Wolf ranges are not available in the big house, but microwaves were readily available.
The "chef" would buy ingredients from the prison commissary and whip up the meals. Pablo's favorite -- a spicy rice bowl with jalapenos and available meat. Pablo boasts, "It was some of the best food you could ever make in a microwave."
The rapper says he learned a hard lesson behind bars ... and vows to never carry a gun again.
Lawyer Fires Back
I Wasn't Promoting Me, I Was Promoting You!
3/13/2014 2:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The personal injury lawyer who just got his ass sued by Judge Judy insists Judy's got her robe in a bunch for no reason -- telling TMZ, he wasn't using her image to promote himself ... he was using it to promote HER.
As we reported, Judy sued attorney John Haymond claiming he stole clips from her show to use in a commercial to promote his law firm -- but Haymond says that's just not the case.
He tells us, the commercial in question is actually for her OWN SHOW.
According to Haymond, the local ABC affiliate in New Haven, CT and NBC affiliate in Springfield recently asked Haymond -- a well-known personal injury lawyer in the area -- and his daughters to appear in the Judge Judy promo ... and he obliged.
Haymond says the promotions actually ran on the station several years ago, but recently stopped, and he's surprised the station isn't owning up. According to Haymond, "If the local affiliates would just release these Judge Judy Show promotions, everyone would see this is much ado about nothing."
What Haymond isn't addressing -- apparently Judy doesn't think he has the right to take old commercials targeted for her show and then slap them on his website long after the fact.
Cell Tower Could Be the Key
In Mysterious Disappearance
3/13/2014 11:54 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
A cell tower in Kota Bharu could be the missing puzzle piece in the mysterious disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 last weekend.
There's a theory ... the aircraft doubled back over Malaysia after it began to cross the South China Sea, and crashed off the opposite coast instead ... somewhere in the Malacca Strait.
Malaysian officials have rejected the theory -- but if it's true (as some still believe) the plane would have passed over the city of Kota Bharu, which contains a powerful Celcom cellular phone tower.
Credible mobile analysts tell TMZ, if the plane flew over the tower there's a high likelihood the tower would contain data transmitted by cell phones inside the aircraft ... if the phones were on.
Roughly 30% of passengers leave their phones ON during flights -- this according to published reports.
So ... the cellular tower could be the critical piece of evidence to either prove or disprove the U-turn theory.
We've reached out to Celcom about possible data transmitted to the Kota Bharu cell tower -- so far, no word back.

Justin Bieber has cut his final ties with the city of Los Angeles ... because TMZ has learned he's sold the last piece of property he owns in the area ... leaving him wide open for a permanent move to the ATL.

As for the buyer, our sources say it's nobody famous, but he's about to inherit a slew of famous neighbors.
We're told Bieber had been looking for another home in the Los Angeles, but he's since called off the search.

I'm NOT a Bad Guy
Just Greedy As Hell
3/13/2014 10:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
11-game "Jeopardy" champ Arthur Chu -- widely criticized for his cocky attitude and unorthodox playing style -- insists he's not such a bad guy in real life ... minus his unquenchable thirst for money.
Chu was out in NYC early Thursday -- a day after his "Jeopardy" reign came to an end -- and he told us, fans of the game show got the wrong impression of him ... just because he was an ambitious (and extremely successful) player.
Chu -- who won nearly $300,000 on the show -- said, "I don't think I'm a bad guy for trying to win money on Jeopardy. I might be a bad guy for other reasons, but that's for other people to decide."
As for what he plans to do with his massive check -- watch the video.
Goes After Nightclub ...
Don't Pay that Bitch a Cent!
3/13/2014 9:48 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Chris Brown claims an Orange County nightclub is hanging him out to dry by settling up with a woman who sued both Chris and the club ... claiming Chris brutalized her after his performance.
It's a weird lawsuit ... Deanna Gines claims as Chris was leaving Heat Ultralounge last June in Anaheim, he bulldozed through her path, knocking her to the ground and injuring her leg.
Chris calls BS on her story, and frankly he's got a point. In the surveillance video, she limps on one leg and when she appeared on TMZ Live she had a cast on the other leg.
Nonetheless ... Heat Ultralounge settled with Deanna for $15K, which means the only defendant left in the suit is Chris.
Chris' lawyer, Mark Geragos, thinks the settlement is grossly unfair to his client, because it will leave Brown holding the bag. So Geragos has filed documents asking the judge to block the settlement.
Now this is true love ... Karrueche filed a declaration standing by her man, saying that Chris never touched the broad.
