Joseph Randle 911 Call

'He Pointed a Gun at Me'

... 'I'm Scared'

2/9/2015 9:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0209-joseph-randall-911-launch

TMZ Sports has obtained the 911 call made by Joseph Randle's ex -- in which she claims the Dallas Cowboys running back pointed a gun at her and her son ... and threatened to kill them. 

The call was made on February 4th ... during an incident at a hotel in Wichita, Kansas. 

The woman on the phone, who has a child with Joseph, told the operator Randle had gone ballistic.

"He put his hands on a female ... he pointed a gun in front of the mother of his child," she said. 

"He was threatening me to take our lives ... we have our child with us."

The woman says Joseph was also in possession of a bunch of weed -- which he was trying to ditch when he learned cops were on the way. 

The woman also claims Randle put the gun in a car, which left the scene before officials arrived. 

A short time later, the woman called 911 again and changed her story -- telling cops she and Randle had "talked it out" and that everything was fine. 

During the 911 call, which was released by authorities, the operator explained that he couldn't call off the cops because she mentioned a gun. 

Randle was eventually arrested for marijuana possession -- a charge that was later dropped. 

As for the gun and the alleged assault, Randle adamantly denies the allegations -- and has not been charged with anything related to domestic violence.

breaking news

0206-Bobby-Brown-Audio-Launch-TemplateBobby Brown's bloody, bottle smashing family brawl was even more intense than we thought ... after hearing the 911 call one of the witnesses made.

The caller tells dispatch the fight was a violent free-for-all involving at least 8-10 people inside the W Hotel -- and someone had smashed a glass and was using it as a weapon.

As we reported ... the melee allegedly started when Bobby's older sister Tina spit in her own son's face. Listen to the tape ... it's clear hotel security is struggling to get control of the situation.  

Suge Knight

Witness' Frantic 911 Call

'He Ran Over Two Guys'

2/5/2015 1:56 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Suge Knight 911 Call

Suge Knight has a new problem ... the woman who frantically called 911 seems to support the police theory that Suge intentionally ran over his victims.

The 911 caller is clearly unraveled as she describes what she saw last Thursday from start to finish. What's especially important ... she says Suge and one of the victims were fighting and then Suge "pull back and pushed forward and run him over."  

It's not crystal clear, but it seems she's saying Suge hit the guy intentionally.

Listen and decide for yourself.

Ray J

911 Call for Suicidal GF ...

'She Might Kill Me First'

1/2/2015 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE
Ray J 911 Call
Ray J was afraid his girlfriend was going to pull a murder-suicide -- offing him and then herself -- just days after rapper Earl Hayes did the same ... at least according to his 911 call that day.

TMZ broke the story ... Ray J freaked last month when he broke up with Princess Love, and he says she threatened to kill herself with a gun.

We've obtained the 911 call he made ... begging the dispatcher to send police to check on Princess. He repeatedly mentioned the Hayes murder-suicide -- and that he attempted, but failed, to take Love's gun.

One weird thing to listen for -- Ray J can't seem to decide if he left Princess in the  house out of fear, or because ... "I gotta go shoot a television show."

We know time is money, but damn.

Scott Stapp

Relatives Panic

He's Out to Kill Obama [911 Tape]

12/12/2014 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE
121114_scott_stapp_911_sister_launch_v2Scott Stapp threatened to assassinate President Obama ... and his alarmed wife and sister-in-law made a desperate 911 call to stop him. 

Scott had just gone AWOL from a mental facility late last month, when his sister-in-law told the 911 dispatcher he was cruising around his neighborhood, shirtless on a bicycle. She says the former Creed frontman claimed to be a CIA agent and his mission was to kill Obama. 

Stapp claimed in a rambling video the IRS is trying to ruin his life because he's been trashing Obama.

Jaclyn Stapp, Scott's wife, joins the 40-minute 911 call, telling the dispatcher Scott had printed out 400 - 600 pages of CIA documents which he supposedly found online, put them in a book bag and took off on his bike.

The 2 women were pleading with the dispatcher to snare Scott and take him back to the psych ward. 

As cops were dispatched, Scott placed his own 911 call, saying his wife had stolen his truck and that's why he was on a bike.

When cops arrived Scott told them Jaclyn had pilfered $6 mil from him, and when he confronted her she decided to get him locked up. In the end, police determined Scott did not show enough signs of mental instability to warrant a psych hold.

TMZ broke the story ... Jaclyn has filed legal docs trying to get Scott on a 60-day psych hold, claiming he was deep into various drugs, including coke, weed, PCP and amphetamines. Scott posted a video claiming he's drug free.

Ray J's Girlfriend

I Made a Mistake

Suicide Threat Was Wrong

12/11/2014 11:46 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE
Princess Love Suicide Threat
Ray J's girlfriend says she'd never kill herself ... and her recent threat was just a bad choice of words.

Princess Love says she clearly took things too far -- especially considering her friends Stephanie Moseley and Earl Hayes' murder-suicide

Princess tells us her suicide scare Wednesday was triggered by an argument she and Ray J had over holiday plans. As TMZ previously reported, Ray J thought she was upset over a BET special he filmed with Karrueche Tran.

Princess tells us she and Ray J have reunited ... but we're guessing it's only a matter of time before things once again go south.

Ohio State QB JT Barrett

Cops Called Over

Alleged Fight with Pregnant Ex Girlfriend

Police rushed to the campus apartment of OSU quarterback JT Barrett after an alleged fight with his pregnant ex-girlfriend -- and on a 911 call she claimed he choked her and threw her across a room.

The incident happened early Wednesday morning, and ultimately no arrests were made. 

According to the police report, Barrett -- who broke his ankle in a game last month -- told police Alexandra Barrett-Clark refused to leave his apartment. He claims she ran at him and he merely pushed her away in self-defense.

But Alexandra's version is that Barrett "choked her on the bed," using his forearm to apply pressure to her neck. She says she managed to get away and call police. 

Actually, they both called 911 -- take a listen. They both sounded oddly calm on the phone. When police arrived they didn't see injuries on either of them.

Shelly Sterling 911 Call

An 'African Black'

Is Tormenting My Husband (AUDIO)

EXCLUSIVE
101014_sterling_911_launch
Shelly Sterling dialed 911 the second she found out Donald Sterling was home alone with V. Stiviano -- and told the operator a woman she described as "African black" had broken into her house.

On the October 1 call -- obtained by TMZ -- Shelly says her gardener saw V. going in a side door of the Sterling mansion ... and she was in a bedroom with Donald.

By the way, Shelly was in France while this was all going down, but repeatedly tells the operator ... V. is "tormenting" Donald. 

In the bedroom? We doubt it, but you gotta hear Shelly explain why police have to race to the house ... WITHOUT calling Donald. It's tricky.

George Zimmerman

Questioned by Cops

In Alleged Road Rage Incident

091214_george_zimmerman_launch_v2

George Zimmerman allegedly threatened to kill a man in Florida earlier this week during a road rage incident ... and cops pulled over Zimmerman to grill him about it.

According to the Lake Mary PD, a man named Matthew Apperson called 911 on September 9 and told the operator Zimmerman had pulled up next to him and began yelling, "Why are you pointing your finger at me? I'll f***ing kill you. Do you know who I am?"

Apperson says he drove away to a store where Zimmerman followed him to continue the verbal barrage. Apperson called 911 from inside the store, but according to cops ... Zimmerman was gone when they arrived.

Apperson claims 2 days later, he saw Zimmerman parked outside his work, and called police again. Cops responded and pulled Zimmerman over near the office. After questioning him, police decided not to press charges -- mainly because there was no independent witness.

For what it's worth ... Apperson is white. Also, he was carrying a gun at the time of the alleged run-in, but he has a permit for it.

Conrad Hilton Crash

He's Doing 200 MPH On the Shoulder

9/10/2014 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE
Conrad Hilton CrashConrad Hilton was driving so out of control moments before he crashed his car near Palm Springs ... at least one alarmed driver was convinced he was going "about 200 miles an hour" ... according to 911 tapes obtained by TMZ.

As we reported ... Paris' youngest brother crashed after clipping the rear of 2 other vehicles, and had to be cut from the wreckage with the jaws of life. Somehow he walked away without major injury.

So many people called 911 after seeing Hilton fly by on the freeway -- sometimes on the shoulder -- the police dispatcher seemed to get annoyed at repeat callers ... and even challenges the 200 MPH report.

Cops say the accident is still under investigation.

Shia LaBeouf

082214_shia_labeouf_launch

Shia LaBeouf called 911 after coming face-to-face with an intruder at his L.A. home ... and you hear Shia scream at the strange woman, "Don't touch me!."

LaBeouf -- who sounds relatively calm -- tells dispatchers a woman who'd been stalking him for weeks was right at his door.

Cops arrested 31-year-old Graciela Nahle.  Law enforcement tells us ... she's been there twice ... both times skulking around.

Nahle copped a quick plea after last weeks' arrest .... no contest to trespassing. She was sentenced to 45 days in jail ... but she was out in just 4 days.  

She's also been ordered to stay far away from LaBeouf.   

Good luck with that.

EXCLUSIVE
080414_michael_johns_launch
Former "American Idol" contestant Michael Johns may have been dead for more than an hour before he was discovered ... according to the friend who found him.

TMZ has obtained the dramatic 911 call.  Michael's friend tearfully tells the dispatcher he had left Johns 2 hours before and he seemed ok, but when he returned Michael was motionless ... and not breathing.

The friend tells the dispatcher he fears Michael is dead and says Michael was cold to the touch and it appeared rigor mortis had set in.

 You hear the friend breathlessly perform CPR ... to no avail.

Johns died Friday.  The coroner has not determined the cause of death.  Johns complained he had twisted his ankle and the swelling spread to his knee.  Police were told he had been drinking a significant amount of alcohol although we do not know the time frame.  We don't know if he was on pain meds.
