Chris Cornell FBI Swoops In After Stalker Skips Court, Goes Missing

5/27/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0526-chris-cornell-TMZ-01Chris Cornell's stalker is on the loose and could show up at his doorstep at any minute ... this according to the FBI.  

The feds contacted Cornell Wednesday to let him know Jessica Robbins -- who was charged with stalking Cornell in 2014 -- is on the loose again. Robbins allegedly sent hundreds of online threats to Cornell and his family, and drove 7 hours in a failed attempt to get inside his home.

We're told Robbins removed her court-ordered GPS ankle monitor and bailed on a Tuesday appearance in NYC federal court.

The FBI obtained a bench warrant for her arrest the next day, and we're told U.S. Marshals and Florida authorities are working together to track her down.

The timing is problematic ... Cornell has 2 shows in Florida soon  -- both within driving distance from Tampa, Robbins' last known location.

'The Wonder Years' Star Busted for DUA ... Ambien

5/26/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0524-jason-robert-hervey-mug-shot-01"The Wonder Years" star Jason Hervey just learned the hard way ... never take Ambien before you get behind the wheel. 

Tennessee law enforcement tells TMZ ... they got a call about a swerving pickup truck and were able to locate it. Cops say Hervey was behind the wheel and totally out of it ... slurring, red-eyed and confused. 

Cops say Hervey miserably failed a field sobriety test. They searched the pickup and found a loaded handgun, but the actor had a permit. Hervey was booked for DUI and carrying a weapon while under the influence. 

The incident went down back in January 2015 but it went unnoticed, until this past weekend when Hervey served 48 hours behind bars for a misdemeanor DUI charge. The weapons charge was dropped.

Jason, who played Wayne Arnold on the show, tells us he has a prescription for Ambien and stupidly took one before hopping in the truck for a quick errand, he had no alcohol in his system ... he's thankful cops got him off the road before anything really bad happened.

Our sources tell us the arrest -- which went down at an L.A. supermarket -- is connected to an investigation surrounding NFL Hall of Famer Ron Mix ... who pled guilty to 1 count of tax fraud just yesterday. 

Officials have said Mix -- who became a workers compensation lawyer after his NFL career -- was involved in a scam where an unidentified person known as "Individual F" would refer pro athletes his way and, in exchange, Mix would make a donation to a charity called "Project Contact Africa."

Officials also claim "Individual F" was using the donations -- $155,000 from Mix alone -- for "his own personal enjoyment and to fund his lifestyle."

Officials wouldn't tell us if Washington is "Individual F" -- but Washington is reportedly credited as the founder of Project Contact Africa.

update_grey_gray_bar

The brother of NBA star DeMarcus Cousins was tased and arrested for fighting in a Tampa nightclub early this morning ... but we're told DeMarcus was pulled away from the fracas before cops got involved. 

Both DeMarcus and Jaleel Cousins had been partying at The Drynk SoHo (see pic of the two below) when things got heated with club security. 

FYI, Jaleel was a center for the University of South Florida basketball team. He just completed his senior season. 

Sources inside the club tell us the brothers tried to get into the DJ area but security was shutting them down -- and that's when the chest-puffing began. 

In footage obtained by TMZ Sports, you can see Jaleel throwing a haymaker punch -- while chaos ensues around him. We're told someone in DeMarcus' crew grabbed the Sacramento Kings star almost immediately and smartly rushed him outside. 

Cops rushed in and tried to take Jaleel into custody -- but he allegedly resisted so cops busted out the taser and shocked him into submission. He was eventually arrested for misdemeanor battery and resisting arrest. 

A police spokesperson told us, "There was no indication of any involvement by DeMarcus Cousins."
