More trouble for former Texas A&M defensive lineman Isaiah Golden -- the 20-year-old was arrested for domestic violence last night in Louisiana ... TMZ Sports has learned.
Golden was a starter as a freshman for the 2013 Aggies and recorded 32 tackles -- but was kicked off the team after being arrested for aggravated robbery for an incident back in May.
Now, the 6'2", 330-pounder is facing misdemeanor domestic abuse and child endangerment charges after an alleged altercation in Lake Charles, LA.
Our sources tell us Golden is accused of getting into it with the mother of his children -- and it all went down in front of the kids -- hence the child endangerment charge.

Ex-College Football Star
ALLEGED SERIAL RAPIST
Busted In Oklahoma
8/22/2014 6:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The suspect is former Eastern Michigan linebacker Daniel Holtzclaw -- who dominated at EMU from 2005 to 2008 and later got a tryout with the Detroit Lions ... though he never made the squad.
A former college football star -- who later became a police officer -- was arrested in Oklahoma City after officials say he's suspected of raping multiple women over the past 5 months ... while on duty.
After his football career fizzled, Holtzclaw became a cop with the Oklahoma City Police Dept. -- but he's behind bars on a $5 MILLION BOND.
Officials say the 27-year-old is accused of sexually assaulting at least 7 women -- all black and between the ages of 34 and 58 -- and that all of the incidents happened during his shifts while he was on duty.
Investigators say they've spoken with 6 of the alleged victims -- and are hoping to speak with the 7th as soon as possible. Officials anticipate there may be more victims.
Holtzclaw was taken into custody on August 21st --- and if he's convicted on all charges, he could face life in prison without the possibility of parole.
Massive Cop Screw Up
In Doppelganger Meth Bust
8/21/2014 2:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Scott Weiland is the victim of a series of screw-ups as well as incredible deception. Cops now tell TMZ they were WRONG -- the guy who's been in custody for meth possession and burglary for A MONTH is NOT who they thought it was -- Scott Weiland.
TMZ posted a story late Thursday that Weiland was currently behind bars after allegedly stealing razors from a Bev Hills drug store in late July. The Bev Hills cops said when they searched him, they found meth.
Apparently the guy said he was Scott, and cops believed him.
BHPD gave us a written statement, titled "Celebrity Arrest," which read, "The suspect, former Stone Temple Pilots band member Scott Weiland (46 years of age), was taken into custody..."
The man has been in L.A. County Jail since July 26, unable to post $95,000 bail.
After we posted the story ... Scott posted a video on Facebook of himself at an L.A. recording studio ... to show he was NOT in jail.
We then called the Sheriff's Dept. back but they were unwavering, telling us they did a "physical check" on the inmate and insisted Scott "was definitely in custody."
Oops. The BHPD got back to us late Thursday night and said they made a BIG mistake ... the inmate is actually a 44-year-old guy named Jason Michael Hurley. They discovered it through belated FBI fingerprint analysis, even though he's been locked up since July 26.
We'll give the cops this ... the guy does have red hair.

Columbus Short just got a new set of cuffs .... he was arrested and taken into custody in a Van Nuys courtroom.
Short has been a wanted man since last month when he failed to appear in his criminal domestic violence case. Short chose to go to Barbados instead. The judge issued an arrest warrant and set bail at $40K.
That same judge became enraged earlier this week when Short skipped another hearing ... he was still vacationing in Barbados. The judge upped the bail to $500K.
The former "Scandal" star showed up this AM to face the music and was immediately arrested.
Now get this ... Short had another hearing today in a criminal case involving a bar fight, but he didn't show because he was in custody. So the judge in the bar fight case issued a SECOND arrest warrant and set bail at $250K.
He makes bad decisions.

Pisses Off Judge
8/20/2014 1:06 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Columbus Short -- like the Caribbean island where he's hiding -- is a little beach ... so says the judge in his domestic violence case who just annihilated him in court.
Columbus was a no show in court again Wednesday AM -- and the irate judge has clearly lost his patience, upping his arrest warrant from $40K to $500K ... that means when Columbus is eventually arrested he has to post half a mil before he's set free.
Columbus has been a fugitive from justice after blowing off his domestic violence hearing last month in favor of his extended Barbados vacation.
We're told ... the former "Scandal" star is expected to fly back to the U.S. Wednesday to face the music ... and we're told he will be immediately cuffed and jailed.
Judgment day awaits.
Half-Brother Jailed in Stabbing
8/19/2014 5:58 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
It's so eerie ... Jennifer Hudson's half-brother is in jail ... for allegedly repeatedly stabbing a man in the face ... a man who was involved in a relationship with his estranged wife.
The incident mirrors another tragedy in the Hudson family. William Balfour -- the ex-boyfriend of Jennifer's sister Julia -- murdered her mom, brother and nephew in a jealous rage triggered by what he thought was a gift to Julia from her new boyfriend.
Steven Simpson is now in custody in Paw Paw, Michigan, and he's expected to be charged with home invasion and attempted murder.
Rick Perry Mugshot
8/19/2014 3:56 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Texas Governor Rick Perry pursed his lips with a faint smile as he posed for his mug shot ... and the pic is a study in politics and spin control.
As you probably know ... Perry has been indicted for felony abuse of power ... trying to coerce a political enemy -- a D.A. who was convicted of drunk driving -- out of office by threatening to veto a law enforcement bill if she didn't resign.
Perry -- who says the charges are BS -- has a lot at stake in this mug shot. He clearly wants to run for President in 2016, so the way he looks and dresses in the pic is critical.
Nice suit, crisp white shirt, appropriate blue tie. The look is confident, defiant but not too smug. It's way better than James Brown's mug and on a par with Armie Hammer and Lindsay's 6th.
'Cat Daddy' Rapper
Fails to Surrender for Jail
Arrest Warrant Issued
8/18/2014 12:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Rapper Jovan Clayton failed to "Cat Daddy" into court to begin a 4-month jail sentence ... so now a judge has issued a bench warrant for his arrest.
As TMZ first reported, Clayton got 120 days in L.A. County lockup after he pled no contest to one count of receiving stolen property during a nightclub incident last April.
Clayton had until 8:30 AM Friday to surrender. Now that the bench warrant was issued ... a judge could possibly tack on additional jail time.
We shot this video in April of Clayton getting out of jail, so ... imagine it in reverse ... once the law catches up to him.

8/16/2014 1:57 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Rapper Kid Ink was arrested early Saturday in Las Vegas for disturbing the peace ... which raises the question, is there really peace in Vegas?
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... cops raced to 1Oak nightclub in the Mirage just before 3 AM after a 911 call about a fight in the club.
Several eyewitnesses tell us ... Kid Ink's female friend started the scuffle.
We're told the woman was acting belligerent as the 2 left the club ... and when security confronted them the "Show Me" rapper and his crew started getting physical.
Police hauled the rapper and his female friend off to jail. The woman was booked for giving a false statement to officers -- we don't know what she told them -- and Ink was booked for disturbing the peace.
He'll be released Saturday afternoon without posting bail. He's ordered to appear in court Monday.
UPDATE: A rep for Kid Ink claims the rapper and some of friends were taking photos on the closed red carpet ... but when there was an issue between a third party and security -- police stepped in.

1:45 PM PT -- Sherrie is now being held without bail, and the D.A's Office says she'll be behind bars for several months. We're told she failed to appear for a prior family court case, so a judge remanded her bail until her first hearing in that case ... which is November 4th.

Dropped From His Own Clothing Line
8/15/2014 4:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
War Machine no longer does Alpha Male S*** ... that's because he's been dropped by the clothing line he helped create.
The company has a new owner, who wants nothing to do with the wanted MMA fighter, saying, "ALPHA MALE clothing has been taken over by a NAVY SEAL. We have NO affiliation with Jon/WarMachine."
The Alpha Male clothing website links to a site for Christy Mack merchandise, which weirdly still features War Machine.
