Desiigner Gun Charge Dropped

9/10/2016 6:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0910-desiigner-tmz-01Desiigner just caught a big break ... the D.A. has dropped the felony gun charge for which he was arrested Thursday night, but he's not out of the woods.

Law enforcement tells TMZ, they cased the SUV in which the "Panda" rapper was a passenger, but found no gun.  The arrest for felony possession of a loaded gun was based on what the driver of another car told cops, but the D.A. clearly felt that wasn't enough.

The D.A. has also dropped the charge of felony possession of a controlled substance with the intent to sell.  

TMZ broke the story, the passengers in the SUV and the driver of the other car were involved in a road rage incident, and when cops tracked down the SUV they said they found numerous pills on the console.  We're told the drugs were Oxycontin, methadone and steroids.

Desiigner is being arraigned Saturday A.M. in an NYC court.  He still faces charges of possession of a controlled substance and menacing.  It's unclear why the menacing charge is still on the table since it was based on him waiving a gun at the other driver.

EXCLUSIVE

0909-desiigner-arrested-tmz-02Desiigner was arrested Thursday night in NYC in a road rage incident that led to felony drug and weapons charges ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the people in the SUV and the driver of another vehicle began screaming at each other. The driver of the other car called 911 and claimed Desiigner pointed a gun at him. The SUV left but the driver of the car took down the license plate number.

Exclusive Details

0909-iman-mug

Cleveland Cavs star Iman Shumpert was arrested for driving under the influence of marijuana back in August ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

According to the police report, Shumpert was pulled over outside of Atlanta on August 10th around 11:37 PM for a lane change violation and because his taillights weren't on in his rented Audi A3. 

During the stop, the officer says Shumpert reeked of weed -- and his eyes were bloodshot. 

Shumpert told the cop he had just come from his "homegirl's house" and was going to pick up his father from the airport. 

The cop administered a field sobriety test and determined Shumpert was high. Shumpert also admitted he had smoked weed before leaving his friend's house. 

Cops searched the car and found a mason jar with marijuana. 

Cops wanted to perform a blood test on Shumpert but he refused -- claiming, "people would recognize him and it would cause a scene."

Shumpert was handcuffed and arrested for DUI marijuana and possession of weed (less than an ounce). He was also cited for failure to maintain his lane. 

The Cavs issued a statement saying they have discussed the situation with Iman and "will monitor the progression of the pending case."

"A court date has not been set at this point, and neither Iman or the team will have any additional comments while the matter progresses through the legal process."

Lawrence Taylor Reeked of Cigars & Booze ... During DUI Arrest

9/7/2016 6:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0907_lawrence-taylor_gettyLawrence Taylor wasn't sure what county he was in when he allegedly crashed into a police car while drunk ... this according to cops on the scene. 

In the arrest report, obtained by TMZ Sports, Palm Beach County cops say they responded to a crash around 5:22 PM on Friday ... where another officer said he had been hit by a silver sedan driven by LT.

Taylor was waiting on the scene ... and cops say he had all the signs of a drunk person -- stunk of cigars and booze, had bloodshot eyes and was unsteady of his feet.

When police asked him where he was, he responded "Broward" ... which is a different county about an hour south of the crash scene. Cops also said they asked him how much he had to drink and he said "apparently too much."

He was placed under arrest after failing field sobriety tests. 

According to the report, LT told police he had just suffered an injury and felt like he was going to throw up, so cops called an ambulance and briefly took him to the hospital before booking him into the jail. 

Cops say they took two breath samples five hours after the crash, which registered at .082 and .084.

He's due in court at the end of the month.

Lawrence Taylor Hall of Fame Timing In DUI Arrest

9/7/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0906-lawrence-taylor-GETTY-02You could say Lawrence Taylor's the luckiest guy to ever get busted for DUI -- or at the very least he timed it out perfectly.

We found out the NFL Hall of Famer's arrest Friday in Florida came exactly ONE day after his 6 year probation in his sexual misconduct conviction ended.

A rep for the Rockland County DA's office tells us ... LT filed an application to end his probation early a few months ago. The DA's office was against it, but a judge granted the request and ordered his probation terminated on September 1.

24 hours earlier and the DUI arrest could have triggered a probation violation and jail time for Taylor. 

It's possible LT was excessively celebrating the judge's decision when he got into the alleged drunken crash.

"Swamp People" star Chase Landry apparently has his own way of enforcing a speed limit ... and it landed him behind bars.

The Terrebonne Parish Sheriff's Office tells TMZ ... Chase was arrested for illegal discharge of a weapon after shooting at a speeding boat in Bayou Chene, LA. His reason -- the boat refused to slow down and Chase feared it would hit and sink his boat while out alligator hunting.

Cops say the victim's shrimp boat took the brunt end of things ... leaking gasoline from what appeared to be a gunshot hole. Chase and the boat took off but cops ultimately tracked him down driving down a highway. They pulled him over and brought him in for questioning.

Chase admitted to firing a gun. He was arrested and taken to jail.

NFL's Damian Swann Arrest Video Please Don't Bust Me ... I PLAY FOR THE SAINTS!

9/2/2016 12:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

TMZ Sports obtained police footage from the night NFL cornerback Damian Swann was arrested in Georgia in which he throws a serious Hail Mary ... asking the cop to give him a break because he plays for the New Orleans Saints!

The 23-year-old was pulled over in Athens-Clarke County, Georgia on March 18th -- with passenger Rico Johnson (an ex-Georgia football player) when cops said he was going 100 in a 65.

Swann told cops he had a firearm in his pocket and another gun in his car (Glock .380 and a S+W .40) -- but that didn't seem to be a problem as he had a valid Concealed Carry Permit.

But when the cop tells Swann he needs to take him into custody, the NFL player did everything he could to try to talk the officer out of it ... to no avail.

Swann also had a bunch of cash on him and a condom ... the cop told him he wouldn't need the condom in jail.
