Louis Tomlinson Immigration Status Protected In Wake of Battery Arrest

EXCLUSIVE

Louis Tomlinson has no worries about his immigration status after getting arrested for allegedly roughing up a paparazzo and a woman at LAX ... even if he's convicted.

We've done some checking and Louis -- who has an entertainer visa -- will not be flagged or blocked from U.S. entry, because even if he's charged ... it will be a misdemeanor "simple" battery.  

Under immigration law, Louis' status could be compromised if the crime involves moral turpitude or great bodily harm, but neither applies in this case.

There are countries -- like Canada -- that are super strict and sometimes block people who have even misdemeanors on their records.

What we're hearing ... this will probably end up as an informal hearing in the City Attorney's Office, which is an alternative path to charging someone with a crime.

As we reported, the paparazzo made a citizen's arrest after the 1D singer wrestled him to the ground after the photog was taking pics of Louis' girlfriend.

Our sources say cops will forward the file to prosecutors for a possible criminal battery case.

Jackie Warner Arrest Video Tense Moment at Gunpoint ... 'Stay in the F***ing Car!'

EXCLUSIVE

Jackie Warner came face-to-face with a cop's gun during her arrest in West Hollywood, and TMZ obtained some intense video of her brief standoff with law enforcement. 

The video shows an L.A. County Sheriff's deputy aiming the gun while Jackie is behind the wheel of her car. The deputy's barking commands at Jackie, like ... "stay in the f****** car!" Jackie eventually emerged, in handcuffs, a white t-shirt, and a towel wrapped around her waist.

We broke the story ... the fitness queen crashed her car in WeHo, and when cops showed up things went south. Law enforcement sources say she backed into a patrol car ... forcing a deputy to jump out of harm's way, and leading to what happened in this video.

Jackie was arrested for felony assault with a deadly weapon. As for the towel around her waist ... we're guessing deputies put it on her. She was not wearing pants because, as sources connected to Jackie put it, she was "sleep driving" on Ambien. 

update_graphic_red_bar8:27 AM -- Jackie's rep tells TMZ, "It is unfortunate that a bystander filmed Jackie without her knowledge and then released that footage to the media in an obvious attempt to humiliate her."  The rep goes on, "Jackie was in an extremely vulnerable state, having driven in her sleep after taking doctor-prescribed Ambien." update_grey_gray_bar

"I made the biggest mistake of my life by putting myself in this situation," Mayfield said ... "I know that I represent the University of Oklahoma on a very large scale, therefore I know better than to bring bad attention and scrutiny to the school and people that I love."

"The shame, guilt, and embarrassment I have felt over the past few days and continue to feel is something I would never wish upon anybody."

"To my parents and brother, I am extremely sorry for bringing this embarrassment to the Mayfield name."

"I promise nothing like this mistake will ever happen again, I will make you all proud, and I will forever represent you win the way that you all deserve."

"I will earn your respect back and prove that I can handle myself in every situation, on and off the field. With much love and regret, Baker Mayfield."
