11/4/2015 12:35 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Cops have cleared Michael Lohan of criminal child abuse, despite Kate Major's assertion he struck one of their kids.

Kate told child services Michael choked her on Oct 11 during an argument and slapped their son in the face. 

Kate showed cops a video she shot during the argument ... according to the police report, the video did not prove Kate's assertion that Michael struck their son. We're told Michael also played audio for cops in which Kate acknowledged he never struck their kid.

TMZ broke the story ... the kids were taken by child services because of the hostile environment they were living in with Michael and Kate ... and the bitter arguing in the video helped prove the point.

Cops were called again to Kate's house just a few days later on Nov 2 after she said Michael came banging on her door. You can hear from the 911 call ... it seems Kate was scared for her life.  

Michael's mother currently has custody over the couple's 10-month-old and 2-year-old after a judge's ruling on Tuesday.

Rick Ross Ex-Groundskeeper's a Liar I Never Pistol-Whipped Him

9/25/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0924-rick-ross-tmz-02Rick Ross is attacking the groundskeeper who is suing him for allegedly pistol-whipping and beating him ... but this time, Ross is admittedly attacking with a gun ... a hired gun.

Ross has filed legal docs against Jonathan Zamudio, who sued Ross claiming the mogul got angry at him for throwing a party in his mansion and driving his cars. Zamudio says Ross locked him in a room, pistol-whipped him and brutalized him so bad he had to eat through a straw.

But Ross now says Zamudio is lying ... and claims he has proof. For starters, Ross notes Zamudio called 911 THREE HOURS after the alleged incident and never mentioned pistol-whipping or any injury for that matter. He also spoke clearly and calmly to the dispatcher. 

Secondly, Ross says Zamudio is in cahoots with his arch enemy, 50 Cent. You'll recall Ross' baby mama sued 50 for posting a sex tape featuring her on his website. A jury felt 50 did it maliciously and awarded her $7 million. Ross says Zamudio's lawsuit is really just 50's revenge.

Ross points to a photo 50 posted of himself with Zamudio, along with the caption, "Now you pay."

0924-50-cent-kidnapped-friend-INSTAGRAM-01Ross calls this a simple shakedown from a guy who left paraphernalia used for cocaine and other drugs all over his house. 

Ross was arrested and jailed in connection with the incident and charged with kidnapping, aggravated assault and aggravated battery. That case is pending and Ross is free on $2 mil bond.

TMZ Sports has obtained the 911 call made by the fiancee of Cleveland Browns offensive line coach Andy Moeller ... in which she claims he strangled and beat her ... and it wasn't the first time it happened.

She tells the operator, "[Andy] just tried to strangle and beat me. I'm leaving the premises and I gotta get out of here quickly." 

During the call, the woman says the two were engaged -- "Not anymore though."

As for what triggered the incident, the woman claims she was talking to her son on the phone when Moeller told her to "shut up" ... and then got violent. 

"I kept telling him to stop and not to hurt me." 

As we previously reported, cops responded to the scene -- but didn't see any evidence of an injury. Hours later, the woman told officials she no longer wanted to press charges against Moeller. 

The case is currently being investigated -- Moeller has not been arrested.
