Lady Gaga Hollywood Video Stud Busted For DUI Twice In a Month

11/30/2016 12:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1129-yuri-bradac-bad-romance-youtube-02The guy who let Lady Gaga stroke his golden chin was bad at romance, but apparently worse at driving ... he got busted twice for DUI in less than 2 months.

Burbank cops tell TMZ Yuri Bradac -- who starred in Gaga's "Bad Romance" video -- was arrested for DUI last week after crashing into a wall at a Chevron station.

Bradac was also popped for drunk driving last month. He pled no contest and he's on probation, which makes the most recent DUI all the more serious, because it comes with mandatory jail time.

As if that's not bad enough ... Bradac refused to take a sobriety test after being arrested last week, which means his license will be automatically suspended for a year.

Bradac has had a lot of success in music videos over the years ... he's appeared with J Lo, Enrique Iglesias and Timbaland. 

We've reached out to Yuri ... he had no comment.

Madonna's son, Rocco, has been arrested in London for possession of weed ... but the arrest flew under the radar for nearly 2 months. 

TMZ has confirmed, London police arrested the 16-year-old for possession of cannabis on Sept. 28th. He reportedly incurred the wrath of neighbors who were bothered by what they believed was drug use in their upscale neighborhood when the boy lives with his dad, Guy Ritchie.

According to reports, cops were called and saw Rocco and a friend sitting on a wall with a friend. They claim he tossed something in the air, but they found a small quantity of weed in his backpack and traces on his clothing.

Rocco moved away from his mom almost a year ago to live with his dad in London. She objected, claiming Guy was too permissive and it triggered a nasty court battle. He was seen back in April hanging with friends, and smoking what appeared to be a joint.

Rocco's already been sentenced. He attended a drug ed class.

Chad Moller, the Associate Athletic Director at Mizzou, said the team is "aware of the incident and are handling it internally." 

Mizzou is set to take on Arkansas on Friday -- no word if Crockett will suit up.

Boxing great Zab Judah was just ordered to spend the next MONTH in jail -- after a Vegas judge determined his recent domestic violence arrest violated his probation from a DUI conviction. 

TMZ Sports broke the story ... the 39-year-old former 4-time world champ was arrested for domestic violence back in July after he allegedly roughed up his wife after a night of boozing.

Judah appeared at a hearing in Las Vegas on Thursday and the judge determined Judah violated his probation -- and ordered the bailiff to take him into custody immediately. 

According to jail records, Judah's release date has been set for Dec. 7th -- a day that will live in infamy. 

Lee Harvey Oswald Slap On the Assassin's Cuffs ... For At Least a Quarter Mil

EXCLUSIVE

1114-lee-harvey-oswald-1963-apThe handcuffs used to arrest Lee Harvey Oswald in Dallas can now be on your own wrists -- or you could buy a decent home in Dallas.

The cuffs that were slapped onto Oswald a little more than an hour after President Kennedy was assassinated are up for grabs, but they ain't a bargain. We're told they should fetch more than $250k!

Goldin Auctions -- who's selling the notorious steel bracelets and other JFK memorabilia -- say the cuffs are hitting the auction block for the first time after remaining in the possession of Oswald's arresting officer, Ray Hawkins, for all these years.

Important to note these are not the cuffs Oswald had on when Jack Ruby shot and killed him. Still, historic hardware, for sure.

Breaking News

1114-cliff-harris-mug-shot-01

Ex-Oregon Ducks football star Cliff Harris -- a former All-American kick returner -- was arrested for drugs early Sunday morning ... and it's clear his life is completely off the rails.

The 25-year-old was a stud back in 2010 -- when he was one of the most dynamic players in college football as a returner and CB and helped the Ducks win another PAC-12 championship.  

But he was dismissed from the program in 2011 -- and his draft stock plummeted. He signed a contract with the Jets in 2013 but was quickly waived after he was busted for weed. 

Now, officials say Harris was arrested around 1 AM on Sunday for theft, drug possession and possession of paraphernalia.  

Officials also say he violated his probation -- stemming from a 2015 incident in which Harris set fire to a grassy median in Fresno, CA. 

You can see his mug shot ... it's not good.

EXCLUSIVE

1109-shane-burton-getty-01A former NFL defensive lineman wound up in cuffs Tuesday night after allegedly attacking a bar patron and a security guard during Donald Trump's victory speech ... TMZ Sports has learned.

The man at the center of the incident is Shane Burton -- a solid DE who played 8 seasons in the NFL (Dolphins, Bears, Jets, Panthers) and even tackled Tom Brady in Super Bowl XXXVIII. 

But according to law enforcement, Burton went berserk at Barney's Beanery in Burbank just before midnight on Nov. 8th ... allegedly pulling a man off a barstool and battering a security guard. 

Officials says 42-year-old Burton then walked out of the bar -- but didn't get far. Officers found him nearby a short time later and say he was drunk and initially refused to cooperate. 

Burton was eventually handcuffed -- placed under citizen's arrest by the security guard -- and hauled to a nearby jail.

Cops say the alleged victims suffered "scratches, minor abrasions and a torn shirt."

Burton was released Wednesday on $10k bail. He's due back in court in December.

Donald Trump Topless Protesters Say 'Grab Your Balls'

Breaking News

Donald Trump missed out on a fine display of the First Amendment when 2 topless women burst into his polling place with a juicy message scrawled on their bods.

The women barged into the midtown Manhattan polling station -- where Trump later voted -- chanting, "Out of our polls, Trump. Out of our polls, Trump." They'd also written "Trump" and "Grab your balls" on their bare torsos.

They were almost immediately arrested and reportedly booked for electioneering -- a misdemeanor prohibiting the display of badges and signs supporting a candidate at a polling place.

Btw, the toplessness -- totally legal in NY state.
