Ryan Seacrest's company X-mas party got REAL cheeky this week in Hollywood -- in fact, some random weirdo was arrested outside on the street ... after dancing all over the place in assless chaps ... and the hilarious scene was all caught on tape.
We have no idea who the mystery man is or why he was there -- but Tuesday night outside Loteria restaurant, this god among men stripped down to assless chaps ... and danced away like there was no tomorrow.
The best part ... he was dancing to Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up." And he's got some impressive moves too.
Okay, we take that back. The best part is when he gets arrested.

... and My Chewing Gum!
12/12/2013 7:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
George Zimmerman can finally be reunited with the arsenal of guns and ammo that was recently seized from his home, since he's no longer facing domestic violence charges ... officials tell TMZ.
The Seminole County Sheriff's office confirmed ... the case against Zimmerman was just dropped after his GF Samantha Scheibe backed off her story that George got violent with her back in November.
And no charges, means no reason for cops to keep the guns (and chewing gum) that were seized from his home following the initial alleged incident ... a cache that includes 3 handguns, a semiautomatic rifle and the shotgun that Scheibe had claimed Zimmerman used to threaten her.
Here's the entire list of items seized:
• 3 Black Handgun Holsters
• 1 Pack of Gum
• 1 Religious Pendant
• 1 Flashlight
• 1 Pocket Knife
• 1 Sanitizing Wipe
• 2 cell phones
• 2 .223 rounds
• 8 9mm rounds
• 2 .40 caliber magazines with 8 rounds each
• 2 9mm magazines ( 1 with 14 rounds and 1 with 15 rounds )
• 1 Interarms .380 Handgun
• 2 Taurus 9mm Handgun
• 1 Glock 19 handgun
• 1 Kel-Tec 12 Gauge shotgun
• 13 12 Gauge Shotgun rounds
• 1 AR15 rifle
• 1 Soft Sided gun case
• 2 AR15 magazines
• 59 AR15 Rounds
• 1 Combination Lock
We're told George is now free to pick up his stuff whenever he wants -- but so far, he has NOT come by the station.
Domestic Violence Charges DROPPED
12/11/2013 2:41 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
George Zimmerman's just won a big round in the "She-loves-me-she-loves-me-not" game -- his ex-girlfriend wants him back so badly, she's recanted her claim of domestic violence and the case has been dropped.
Zimmerman was arrested and charged with aggravated assault and battery ... after GF Samantha Schiebe claimed he pulled a shotgun on her and pushed her out of their house.
But Samantha has had a change of heart ... she wants George back, and the State Attorney for Seminole County says Samantha now says she lied about the encounter and refuses to cooperate ... hence, there's no way to successfully prosecute him.
But there's still something blocking these lovebirds from reuniting -- a restraining order, which Samantha's lawyer is now trying to get lifted.
Bottom line ... because she's fickle, George is out of a pickle.

Toya wouldn't get into specifics ... but says her fellow inmates were treated "inhumanely."
"I wouldn't wish jail time for my worst enemy," Toya says ... adding, "What I witnessed was so bad that I don't even want to leave the house right now."
Toya says she's even considering turning the experience into a positive by working as an "advocate of better treatment for prisoners."
As for the speeding ticket, Toya says, "Please believe I'm working on lightening up my lead foot."

Gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "burger joint" -- TMZ has learned, a Wendy's employee was arrested last month in Georgia ... after allegedly making a cheeseburger with one crazy off-the-menu ingredient ... marijuana.
According to the Lovejoy Police Department, 32-year-old Amy Seiber was busted during her shift on November 1 ... after a customer called 911, complaining she had found a half-smoked blunt in her cheeseburger.
The customer met with police at the Wendy's location where she ordered the burger, and cops claim Seiber immediately admitted the blunt was hers.
According to police, Seiber said she had been smoking pot on the job and conveniently "misplaced" the blunt inside the customer's burger ... right on top of the pickle.
The blunt was taken as evidence and Seiber was arrested for possession of marijuana ... oh yeah, she was also promptly fired.
We spoke to the lucky customer, who tells us she experienced food poisoning-type symptoms after the incident and had to be hospitalized.
So far, she says Wendy's has offered to help pay for her medical bills ... and has even generously thrown in a $50 gift certificate. Like she'll ever eat at Wendy's ever again.
A rep for Wendy's tells TMZ, "Obviously the employee broke the rules and did not follow proper food handling steps ... We are deeply sorry that this incident occurred.” The rep says the franchisee is working out a favorable solution with the customer, including paying her medical bills.

According to police records, Markert turned herself in to cops --booked under her legal name, Amareda Markert -- but the assault charge was eventually dismissed after she completed an anger management course.
