Katt Williams Wanted By Police ... Again

7/10/2016 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0710-katt-williams-TMZ-01Katt Williams is once again a wanted man -- after all, it's been more than a week. 

Katt was due in a Georgia court on June 20th for his latest battery case, but he was a no-show. The court gave him 10 days to contact the court with an explanation, but it was radio silence. The judge did what judges do and issued a warrant for his arrest.

TMZ broke the story ... Katt was arrested for hurling a salt shaker at a restaurant manager, busting open the guy's lip.

The incident was one in a string of bizarre arrests this year ... from allegedly assaulting a pool store clerk, to brawling with a teenager

Chris Cornell Alleged Stalker Busted at Concert ... FBI Taking Over

Chris Cornell's alleged stalker showed up to his show Wednesday night and was quickly cuffed and taken away ... and now, she'll have to deal with the feds. 

Law enforcement in Kentucky tells TMZ Jessica Robbins was picked up outside Cornell's Louisville concert after trying to enter the venue. Sources close to Chris say every tour venue has had a pic of Robbins and has been on high alert to stop her ... and that move paid off. 

Our sources say Chris was informed of the arrest before the show. 

TMZ broke the story ... Robbins was charged with stalking Cornell in 2014 but went missing in May after missing a court date and ditching her ankle monitor ... which she's been wearing while out on bail.

Cops in Kentucky say they've alerted the FBI of Robbins' arrest and the feds will pick her up Thursday. 

NFL's Davone Bess Video Of SWAT Team Raid During Arizona Standoff

7/6/2016 5:22 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

TMZ Sports has obtained police body cam footage from the SWAT team raid on ex-NFL wide receiver Davone Bess ... including the moment officers sicced an attack dog on him. 

27 police officers assisted in the June 19th incident -- including the SWAT team, which was called in because Bess had barricaded himself in his Arizona home, brandished a knife and had threatened to shoot cops. 

According to the police report, obtained by TMZ Sports, the whole thing started when Bess fled during a routine traffic stop -- and locked himself in his Gilbert, AZ home

The report paints a picture of a very mentally disturbed person -- with 30-year-old Bess repeatedly making bizarre demands, incoherent statements and losing track of where he was. 

Cops ultimately used a K9 unit to apprehend Bess, fearing he was a danger to himself and others. According to the report, the dog bit Bess for 30 seconds. 

0621-davone-bess-mugshot-wmAfter he was taken into custody, Bess demanded a hamburger and K-Y Jelly ... fell asleep while being questioned by officers ... and eventually explained that he initially fled from cops because he was "searching for peace."

Earlier in the evening, Bess' mother told officers her son suffered from depression and had multiple head injuries from playing in the NFL. Bess was in the league from 2008 to 2013. 

She also said he had been hospitalized weeks before the incident, had made suicidal statements in the past and that the family was trying to get him help for mental health issues. 

A seemingly confused Bess admitted to smoking marijuana, drinking vodka and taking Zoloft (an anti-depression, anti-anxiety drug) before the police incident. 

Bess was ultimately arrested and charged with unlawful flight from a law enforcement vehicle. If convicted, he faces up to 2 years in prison. His family clearly wants a judge to order him to get mental help instead of a jail sentence. 

Bess has since plead not guilty and is due back in court in August.

EXCLUSIVE

0627-dan-skuta-GETTY-01Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker Dan Skuta is adamant he never laid a finger on a woman outside of an Orlando bar last weekend ... but says SHE struck HIM ... and he can prove it. 

As we previously reported, Skuta was arrested for battery on June 19th after a woman told police Skuta shoved her head against a glass window after she refused to give him her phone number. 

But Skuta's lawyer says the woman is lying through her teeth -- and the NFL player has multiple witnesses who can back him up.

We spoke with Skuta's lawyer, Mark NeJame, who tells us straight up -- "Dan is innocent."

"Eye witnesses who we have already received statements from in our initial investigation will attest that Dan was alongside his girlfriend when this fabricated event supposedly took place."

NeJame says the female accuser and another woman were harassing Skuta and his friends -- so the NFL player verbally instructed them to leave his group alone. 

"Dan was then struck in the face by one of the women, as is evidenced by his mugshot which clearly shows where he was struck."

Skuta's attorney says the NFL player and his girlfriend then turned and walked away from the women "as to avoid further trouble from his attacker."

"Dan never placed his hands on anyone."

NeJame says Skuta has an outstanding reputation in the community and he's been hurt by the allegations ... but he's confident "the full truth will soon be determined."

NFL quarterback Tarvaris Jackson -- who played for the Seahawks last season -- was arrested in Florida after allegedly PULLING A LOADED GUN on his wife and threatening to kill her.

TMZ Sports has confirmed ... the 33-year-old was arrested around 2 AM Friday for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without the intent to kill.

According to the police report, Jackson pointed a loaded gun at his wife while intoxicated -- threatening to kill her -- all while their children slept in the same house.

"Jackson stated 'I'll kill you bitch, I'll kill you.'"

According to the report, cops arrived to the home -- and Jackson denied having a gun, however an officer observed a black ruger SR9C 9MM caliber handgun on the kitchen counter. 

Jackson eventually fessed up to having a gun in his bag -- but insists he never pulled it out.

He also claims his wife had a knife -- and had insulted his football career. 

"Upon arresting Jackson his story changed. Jackson stated that he did grab his book bag that contained his firearm because [wife] had a knife in her hand.

Tarvaris stated that he never withdrew his firearm from the bag, but that he did say that he should shoot her to which [wife] replied, 'You better be accurate because you ain't accurate on the field.'"

Jackson's wife told police ... "When Jackson drinks he can become violent and has hit her in the past."

Jackson was transported to the Osceola County jail. He's since been released on bail. 

The story was first reported by WESH's Chris Hush

The YouTubers claim Oliver Camilo -- the guy behind celeb emoji apps for Amber Rose and Steph Curry -- not only stole their camera ... he even apologized afterward and tried to offer his business services if they'd forget the whole thing.

Amber Rose, Steph Curry 'Moji' CEO Busted For Stealing Camera From YouTube Star's Crew

EXCLUSIVE

0621-oliver-camilo-emoji-creator-GETTY-04The guy behind celeb emoji apps for Amber RoseSteph Curry, Rick Ross and Future just got arrested for stealing, and thanks to a YouTube star ... the whole bust was recorded. 

Cops say they got a call for a stolen camera at LAX Monday. When they arrived, they were told Oliver Camilo had yanked the equipment from a passenger on his plane. Unfortunately for Camilo that passenger was a friend of YouTuber DOSEofFOUSEY.

You can see in DoF's video ... Camilo initially denied jacking the gear, but after a ton of prodding ... gave it up and ended up in handcuffs.

DoF chose to blur Camilo's face but our law enforcement sources tell us it's the celeb app creator. 

Plus, Camilo himself told us he planned to turn in the camera to lost and found. He says he was shocked by how aggressive DoF was, and that's why he didn't want to hand it over right away. He actually thinks the whole thing was some weird YouTube video experiment.

Camilo also points out he was carrying around $5k of Louis Vuitton luggage, so he doesn't need to steal -- which probably won't hold up in court.
