4/28/2016 12:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

428-djwhookid-tmzDJ Whoo Kid got pulled over by cops for driving in the dark ... without his headlights, and things quickly went downhill from there 'cause he ended up getting arrested.

Whoo Kid was driving his Escalade in downtown Manhattan, around 1:30 AM Tuesday, when cops noticed his headlights were off. They also discovered his driver's license had been revoked, and there was a warrant for his arrest -- so, off to jail he went.

The Shade 45 and G-Unit DJ had a similar run-in with cops in 2014, but failed to show up for court ... hence the warrant.

Cops say he paid a fine and was released later on Tuesday.

Whoo Kid tells us he didn't realize there was a warrant out for his failure to appear in the 2014 case, since he paid the ticket. He has a June court date for this latest arrest.


Katt Williams A Salt & Battery Bust at Restaurant

4/28/2016 7:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Normally we'd take a Katt Williams arrest with a grain of salt, but this one was over multiple grains of salt ... which the comedian allegedly threw at a restaurant manager. 

Katt got arrested late Wednesday night at Atlanta seafood restaurant Spondivits after he got into it with the staff ... according to cops.

We're told Katt's party walked into the restaurant and decided to seat themselves instead of waiting for a host. Katt soon followed and started arguing with the manager over the seating situation.

Katt allegedly settled matters by grabbing a salt shaker, chucking it at the manager and smashing him in the face. Cops say his lip was bleeding, and Katt had fled when they arrived.

Officers found Williams a little later and arrested him for battery (no salt) ... he posted bond and was released around 12:30 AM.

It's deja vu all over again for ex-NY Giants wide receiver Preston Parker -- who was arrested for allegedly trying to ditch drugs during a traffic stop this week ... the 2ND time in 3 weeks.

Parker -- who was cut by the Giants in 2015 after dropping a TON of passes -- was pulled over in Boynton Beach, FL on Monday for illegal tint on his black Chevy Malibu. During the stop, cops say he tossed a clear bag of the sticky icky out of his window. 

Cops found the bag and tried to take Parker into custody while he reportedly resisted. 

But just 3 weeks ago, cops say they had almost the exact same experience with the 29-year-old -- with drama beginning after a stop for tinted windows. 

Only that time, cops say Parker tried to ditch COCAINE -- and when they finally pulled him over, they allegedly found a fully loaded gun in his car. 

Hope he saved some of that NFL cash for a good lawyer ...

"Real World: Skeletons" star Tony Raines narrowly avoided a DUI, but still got busted for boozing in public after a crazy night in Charleston, South Carolina.

Witnesses told cops Raines was driving his truck in a motel parking lot Wednesday night when he almost struck a pedestrian -- and then backed the truck into a parked moped. Someone called the cops and an officer spoke with Tony, but he was not arrested since the moped owner wasn't there at the time to file a complaint. 

Tony wasn't done -- an hour later he was in a Burger King parking lot and almost hit another vehicle. This time police responded and found him sitting in his truck with an open can of Budweiser. 

He was booked for drinking in public, and had his car towed. Since the car was parked, he dodged a DUI.

According to his manager ... Tony thought it was okay to have an open container, like he does back home in Baton Rouge, and he's learned a hard lesson.
