7/11/2018 3:06 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Tekashi69 could potentially spend at least the next week locked up in NYC before he's shipped off to face a judge in Houston.

A rep for the Manhattan District Attorney's Office tells us Tekashi was just arraigned and is now in custody until a tentative date of July 20. We're told authorities from Houston are then expected to pick him up on an arrest warrant issued by a judge back in May.

TMZ broke the story ... 69 was arrested at JFK Airport Wednesday when he landed after his European tour. Cops picked him up on the Houston warrant for allegedly choking a 16-year-old.

Tekashi had a show scheduled Friday in New Jersey, but we're told it was postponed prior to his arrest, and all ticket holders have already been refunded. 

Tekashi69 Busted in NYC For Texas Arrest Warrant

7/11/2018 10:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Tekashi69 is no longer a wanted man in Texas, because cops nabbed him in NYC on an outstanding arrest warrant ... TMZ has learned.

Tekashi was arrested Wednesday at JFK Airport right after he returned from a European tour. Cops were enforcing a warrant out of Houston for a mall attack. As we reported, the rapper was wanted for allegedly choking a 16-year-old kid in January at the Galleria Mall.

6ix9ine's team tells us they were aware of the warrant, and intended to handle the matter soon.

They also think NYPD has no business arresting him and extraditing him to Texas for what's ultimately a misdemeanor case. 

Demi Moore AmEx Card Stolen ... Feds Say Perp Ran Up $169k!!!

7/11/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Demi Moore is the victim in a major credit card fraud case -- way over $100k worth -- according to federal prosecutors. 

According to the criminal complaint, obtained by TMZ, 35-year-old David Matthew Read reported Demi's AmEx card lost or stolen in March, and when the new one was delivered through FedEx ... he somehow managed to pick it up.

The feds say he went on a spending spree, hitting a handful of Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue stores in the L.A. area. Not exactly low-profile, kinda like his final tab. He allegedly ran up $169k over several weeks!

Read was spotted on surveillance cameras -- at the FedEx and also inside the retail stores -- according to the feds, who say he confessed to the caper when they nabbed him in April.

We're told Read's still sitting in L.A. County Jail. We've reached out to Demi's reps for comment ... so far, no word back. 

NFL's Pacman Jones Attacked At Airport ... Suspect Arrested

7/11/2018 5:47 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

NFL star Pacman Jones was involved in a violent altercation at the Atlanta airport -- when he was attacked by an employee ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Jones had touched down at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport on Tuesday evening when cops say ABM employee Frank Ragin "made a gesture towards Adam Jones."

Officials tell TMZ Sports ... Pacman confronted the man about the gesture and a verbal altercation broke out.

"Mr. Ragin eventually struck Mr. Jones with a closed fist," cops say ... "causing a laceration to Mr. Jones’ face."

"Mr. Jones then started to defend himself, causing Mr. Ragin to fall to the ground."

During the fight, cops say Ragin also hit Pacman's female companion -- injuring her hand.

Officials determined Ragin -- NOT Pacman -- was the primary aggressor and he was arrested for 2 counts of battery. 

Pacman and his friend declined medical treatment -- but Ragin was transported to a nearby hospital to be treated for injuries.

Cops say they are still investigating ... 

'L&HH' Star Tommie Lee Arrested Again ... For Disorderly Conduct

7/9/2018 10:45 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

"Love & Hip Hop Atlanta" star Tommie Lee must really want a judge to throw her behind bars 'cause she was arrested again.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Tommie was busted early Monday morning in Atlanta outside of the Royal Peacock club after a cop told her to get out of the roadway where he was directing traffic ... and she allegedly ignored his instructions and got belligerent.

The tipping point ... cops say Tommie struck a nearby valet working for the venue in the head, and that's when officers made their move to detain her. We're told the valet didn't want to press charges, but cops arrested Tommie anyway and booked her for disorderly conduct while under the influence. 

It's unclear what cops think she was on, but booze could spell big trouble -- as in, jail time -- for Tommie. Just 2 months ago a judge ordered her to wear an alcohol monitoring device, and stay out of trouble.

She's definitely failed on at least one front.

Mozzy Arrested in Vegas For Gun Possession

7/9/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Mozzy broke a few rules of the road, then got busted for having a gun he's not supposed to have ... according to law enforcement.

Las Vegas PD tells TMZ ... the rapper was pulled over Thursday night in a black Maserati without license plates for failing to signal during a lane change. We're told Mozzy didn't have a driver's license and, upon inspection of his vehicle ... cops found a loaded Glock in a black book bag.

That's a problem for Mozzy, because he's an ex-felon. He went to prison after a 2014 conviction for gun possession and possession of a controlled substance.

He's now facing a charge for gun possession by a prohibited person.

The rapper was released after posting $5k bail.

Chris Brown Arrested for Felony Battery After Florida Concert

7/5/2018 9:13 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Chris Brown hopped off the stage and into a police cruiser after cops arrested him following a concert in Florida.

Brown had a show at the Coral Sky Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach Thursday where several officers were waiting in the wings -- and when Chris wrapped -- he was arrested.

Law enforcement sources tell us Brown was arrested for an outstanding felony arrest warrant in Tampa. The warrant was issued in connection with an alleged attack at a Tampa nightclub last year. Chris was in the DJ booth when he allegedly attacked a photographer.

Chris bailed out a couple hours later for $2,000.

Brown's been on the road since early last month and has been keeping a low profile. He recently celebrated his daughter Royalty's 4th birthday with baby mama Nia Guzman.

'Jersey Shore' Ronnie Back with Jen for 4th of July ... But, Not 'Back Together'

7/5/2018 9:15 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ronnie Ortiz-Magro's hanging with his baby mama a little more than a week after she allegedly dragged him with her car ... but it's not all amoré just yet.

Sources close to the on-again-off-again couple tell TMZ the 'Jersey Shore' star and Jen Harley were spending time together this week, including on the 4th of July. We're told Jen flew out to Jersey earlier this week, and the pair's been kickin' it for a few days now.

All that said ... our sources say Ronnie and Jen are not officially back together at this point. They're simply working things out for the sake of their daughter, Ariana.

We broke the story ... Jen dodged domestic violence charges after getting busted at the end of last month for allegedly bloodying Ronnie up during a fight in the car.

The incident left one hell of a bloody mess behind, inside the car and out.

Despite Ronnie's close friends wanting him to stay away from her out of fear for his safety, he seems to be doing things his way. So far, so good -- we're told he and Jen have had no major issues this week.

Ronnie still wants a formal child custody agreement though -- he wants a 50/50 split.

Heather Locklear EMT She Allegedly Attacked Lawyers Up

7/5/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Heather Locklear may have to answer for her alleged drunken attack on a paramedic -- and not just in criminal court -- because we've learned the EMT's hired a lawyer.

Sources connected to the case tell TMZ ... the EMT who Heather allegedly kicked during her most recent dustup late last month claims to have suffered serious injury during the ordeal. The EMT has hired personal injury lawyer Kevin Flahavan.

We broke the story ... Heather was arrested for 2 counts of misdemeanor battery upon an officer and emergency personnel while authorities tried separating her from family members. Law enforcement sources told us she punched a cop, and kicked an EMT.

We're told the EMT has been reassigned to desk duty as a result of injuries to her head and neck. Apparently the injuries make paramedic work all but impossible ... at least for now. 

Our sources say the EMT not only wants money for medical bills and pain and suffering ... but also some cash for emotional abuse after allegedly being verbally abused by Heather.

We reached out to Flahavan about the incident, who refused to comment beyond saying his only concern was his client's health and well-being.

Nick Diaz On Dom. Violence Arrest 'I Was Framed'

7/5/2018 6:36 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Nick Diaz is finally breaking his silence on that domestic violence arrest back in May -- telling TMZ Sports, "I was framed."

The UFC star and his camp had been radio silent about the May 24 incident ever since Nick was arrested for allegedly choking a woman and slamming her to the ground at a Las Vegas home. 

He was charged with felony domestic battery by strangulation and faces up to 5 years in prison if convicted. 

So, when we saw Nick leaving Tocaya Organica in Los Angeles, we asked if he had a message for his fans. He cracked a smile and said, "I was framed."

Diaz also talked about his fighting career -- telling us he wants to get back in the Octagon next year -- with his sights set on fighting Georges St-Pierre

"I win if he don't cheat," Diaz said ... "If he don't miss weight like he did last time."

Diaz hasn't fought since 2015 -- despite UFC honcho Dana White offering him several fights over the past 3 years. 

Actress Daisy McCrackin Kidnapped, Male Friend Pistol Whipped and Stripped

7/4/2018 6:55 AM PDT
Breaking News

Two actors were kidnapped, one was pistol whipped and stripped naked and the other driven to banks to withdraw thousands in ransom money ... this according to the L.A. County District Attorney. 

The L.A. County Grand Jury has indicted 3 people for kidnapping, assault with a firearm, grand theft, mayhem, conspiracy and trying to sell methamphetamine.

According to the D.A., the 3 defendants went to the South L.A. home of actress Daisy McCrackin in May, where one of them pistol whipped actor Joseph Capone.  They allegedly placed black hoods over the heads of McCrackin and Capone and drove them to a home in Compton.

The D.A. says the defendants stripped Capone and held him without food in a bathtub for 30 hours.

During that time, the D.A. says 2 of the defendants drove McCrackin -- who appeared in "Halloween: Resurrection" -- to various banks and forced her to withdraw $10k.

McCrackin eventually escaped and called police.  The defendants were arrested.

The defendants all face life in prison. 

Justin Bieber Dodges Arrest Warrant ... For Skipping Egging Depo

7/3/2018 11:46 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber just avoided the wrath of the law -- for now -- dodging a potential bench warrant for his arrest.

According to the court clerk, a judge refrained from issuing the bench warrant Tuesday in L.A. making it likely that JB and his former neighbor, Jeffrey Schwartz, have finally agreed on a new date for Justin to sit for a deposition about the 2014 egging incident.

We broke the story ... Justin missed his deposition on June 22, and Schwartz said it was because the pop star was canoodling with Hailey Baldwin in New York. The couple's been back and forth between the Coasts for well over a week now, and were East as recently as Monday.

As for things getting this far in the first place, Bieber's legal team told us they'd tried rescheduling with Schwartz ... but that he ran off to court before attempting to work something out.

Ya gotta imagine it'll suck when Bieber does eventually come face-to-face with lawyers, especially after such a swoon-worthy time with his gal in the Big Apple. Back to reality, we suppose ...

XXXTentacion Murder Suspect Not Raped in Jail ... Despite Report

7/2/2018 10:41 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

XXXTentacion's murder suspect who is sitting in jail was reported to have been sexually assaulted in a Florida jail -- but, that's just not true ... according to Broward County Sheriff's Office.

Law enforcement officials at BSO tell us the story asserting Dedrick Williams was raped in Broward County Jail is flat-out false. 

The story -- citing someone who works in the Dade County Jail system -- claimed Williams had been showering recently and was ambushed "with an attempted rape." The report went on to claim that people affiliated with Kodak Black may have been involved.

The Broward County Sheriff's Office's Public Information Officer, Veda Coleman-Wright, says that story is "unfounded" and that the entire alleged incident did not happen. Period.

What is accurate is that police have ID'd a person of interest in XXX's murder case -- 22-year-old Robert Allen, who was seen at the motorcycle shop where X was gunned down.

Williams remains as the only murder suspect under arrest for now -- but, cops are searching for at least 2 others
