Kim Richards

Arrest Puts Her On

'RHOBH' Chopping Block

4/19/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Richards Real Housewives Of Beverly HillsIf you don't see Kim Richards on the next season of "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" it'll be because of her drunken arrest earlier this week ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to production tell us producers feel Kim's substance abuse issues make her a liability. There are insurance issues with the show, and serious concerns that if something happens to Kim, Bravo could be on the hook for keeping her on such a contentious, demanding show. 

We're told a decision has not been made, but the alarm has been sounded and there's serious discussion about giving Kim the ax.

Here's where there's a split. Some production sources says Kim's substance abuse problem has been in full bloom all season. Several members of the cast and crew say they've watched Kim present a public picture of sobriety, but when the cameras are off she goes off the rails.

But other production sources tell us Kim actually did better this season in the sobriety department than she's done in years. They also think it's hypocritical for producers to turn their back on Kim now ... they say if she was such a problem she shouldn't have been exploited all year.

The show still has a few months before production starts back up again, so producers have some time to make their final decision.

EXCLUSIVE

A Migos concert was cut short Saturday night in Georgia when police showed up and arrested all 3 members of the group ... for felony drug possession.

We're told all 3 members of Migos left the stage -- along with a posse that was at least 15 deep -- and they were all questioned by cops ... before getting hauled off to jail.

All 3 members of Migos -- Quavo, Offset and Takeoff -- got popped for felony possession of a schedule 2 narcotic (which could be cocaine, Oxycontin or codeine).  They were were also arrested for carrying a loaded gun on school property, also a felony, and misdemeanor marijuana possession.  

We've called the group's rep ... but so far no word back.

L.A. Kings superstar Jarret Stoll -- boyfriend of Erin Andrews -- was arrested in Vegas on suspicion on drug possession ... for allegedly bringing cocaine and ecstasy to a Vegas pool party.

According to local reports, 32-year-old Stoll was busted Friday at the Wet Republic pool party at the MGM Grand.

Stoll was reportedly taken into custody by the Las Vegas Metro Police Department. Unclear if Andrews was with him at the time.

Stoll was taken to Clark County Detention Center -- where he was booked. He was released on a $5,000 bail.

The Kings have issued a statement saying, "We are aware of police reports out of Clark County, Nevada regarding Jarret Stoll."

"Our organization is concerned and has begun conducting a thorough internal investigation. While we continue to actively gather facts, we are withholding further comment at this time."

Kim Richards

Watching Reunion Show

Drove Her to Drink

4/17/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Richards Arrest DrinkingKim Richards just broke from stress when she was arrested early Thursday at the swanky Beverly Hills Hotel.

Sources very close to Kim as well as sources connected with "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" tell TMZ, she was unable to cope with some pretty terrible things going on in her life.

-- Her ex-husband Monty, who still lives with her, is dying of stage 4 cancer.

-- Her son Chad was released from UCLA Medical Center hours before the meltdown.

-- She's under financial stress. Contrary to reports, she's getting no money for child support.

-- Kim is trying to plan her daughter Brooke's official wedding. 

But the real trigger ... we're told earlier in the evening, Kim went to Brooke's house, where they watched the 3-part reunion. Kim had put it off because it was too upsetting, but she had to binge watch in order to fulfill her obligation to blog about the shows. And reliving what went down crushed her.

We're told Kim has been deeply upset over Lisa Vanderpump and Lisa Rinna. Kim believes Vanderpump had intentionally driven a wedge between her and sister Kyle. On the show, Vanderpump urged them to reconcile, but Kim claims off camera Vanderpump told Kyle that Kim didn't want her at Brooke's wedding ... which infuriated Kyle and deeply hurt Kim.

0417-kim-richards-swipe-splashOur sources say the cumulative stress was too much for Kim to bear. We're told she left Brooke's house and ended up alone at the Polo Lounge at the Bev Hills Hotel. It's unclear what if anything she drank there, but Kim has told friends a group of people at a table invited her to sit at around 1:30 AM, but the maitre d' wasn't having it and ordered Kim out.

As we reported, the hotel people say Kim got belligerent, wouldn't leave the restaurant, ended up in the bathroom where cops dragged her out. She was booked for public drunkenness, resisting arrest, trespass and battery on a cop.

Arrested for Attacking Michael Lohan

in Drunken Rage

Exclusive Details

0417-kate-major-mugshot

Kate Major Lohan had an alcohol relapse and then drunkenly attacked husband Michael Lohan ... so say cops who cuffed and arrested her. 

Law enforcement tells us Michael called Boca Raton police at 7:02 PM Thursday, claiming Kate had struck him. He told cops Kate came home after picking up some dinner and was visibly drunk. 

Michael says they squabbled, and it eventually turned physical. He told cops he wasn't wearing a shirt and she scratched him down his back. 

0417-michael-lohan-injury-tmz
According to the report, when police arrived Kate was visibly intoxicated and smelled of alcohol. The officer described her speech as slurred, her eyes blood shot and glossy, and her face red and flushed.  

The officer says Kate admitted she'd been drinking, then ranted about nonsense. Kate then claimed Michael accused her of cheating and provoked her into a fight.

Kate also claimed Michael grabbed her by the throat. But according to the officer, she had no visible injuries. And get this ... she then "scratched her throat area in an attempt to create red marks."

Officers hauled Kate in to the Palm Beach County Jail and booked her for battery.

She's currently in custody and is scheduled to go before a judge at 9:00 AM ET. 

Michael Lohan is actually blaming ex-wife Dina and their ongoing child custody dispute. Michael tells TMZ, "At the end of the day, this is all because of what Dina is doing in court ... It affects Kate too, and like anyone with a drug or alcohol problem, when they can't handle the stress, they resort to drinking."

Kate and Michael got married in November and have two kids together. She recently served a few months behind bars after a DUI arrest (following a fight with Michael) triggered a probation violation stemming from a battery case in 2012 in which she allegedly attacked a police officer.

Police were also called to the couple's home in February of last year for an alleged domestic incident.

The footage shows Broner being pulled over around 1:30 AM in his white Mercedes on January 11th -- after the cop sees the boxing champ driving in two lanes. 

At first, things seem bad for Broner -- the officer is pissed and Broner can be heard slurring his words.

But things take a turn -- Broner professes his innocence ... and actually charms the cop, who eventually tells him she just wants the best for him. 

During the arrest, Broner talks ... A LOT ... and says some interesting stuff. Among the highlights: 

-- "Ya'll don't know who you arrested. If ya'll did, I'd be on the news right now."
-- The cop compliments Broner's physique.
-- Broner tells the cop, "I love you."
-- Cop asks Broner where he fights. Broner responds, "The world." 

But the best part ... when Broner tells the cop he's "blessed" -- 'cause he's made more than $100 million in his career. 

Broner later pled not guilty and still plans on fighting the charges. We reached out to Broner for comment, so far no word back.

She's been charged with trespass, resisting arrest, battery on a police officer and drunk in public. 

Cops issued a citation to Richards -- and she was later released.

Former MLB slugger Scott Spiezio -- a 2-time World Series champ -- was TASED and taken into custody by cops last week following an alleged window-smashing rampage ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

We've learned ... cops were called to Spiezio's apartment complex in Ottawa, Illinois around 2:30 AM on Tuesday ... after his GF called 911 and reported that Scott punched out a neighbor's window. 

When cops arrived to the scene, Scott was gone -- so police called for K-9 backup to track down the 42-year-old. 

A few hours later, officials located Spiezio hiding behind a building -- and attempted to take him into custody. Law enforcement sources tell us Spiezio resisted -- and cops ultimately had to use a taser to take him down. 

We're told Spiezio was eventually taken into custody. So far, he has NOT been charged with a crime ... but the case has been kicked over to the district attorney for review. 

Spiezio was a World Series hero in 2002 -- when he smacked a key 3-run homer in Game 6 ... that helped the Angels defeat the Giants. He was known for being a pretty clutch player during his 11 seasons in the majors. 

We reached out to Spiezio for comment -- so far, no word back. 

Three 6 Mafia Rapper

Tells Cops ...

I Wanted Coke, Not Meth!!!

EXCLUSIVE

0414-churchy-black-mug-WATERMARK-01

Three 6 Mafia rapper Crunchy Black is a man who knows what he wants when it comes to drugs ... but according to cops he isn't too good at getting it. 

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ the Oscar winner was roaming the streets of Vegas early Tuesday when he was stopped for walking into an intersection when the "do not cross" light was flashing.

It didn't take long for cops to discover meth.

According to the police report, Crunchy's response was hilariously incriminating. He said, "Oh damn. I was trying to buy that powder, not meth." 

For bad measure the 'Three 6' rapper also had 2 warrants for his arrest. He was booked for possession and for providing a phony name. He's still in custody.

Crunchy has other problems. He's still a wanted man in Minnesota after allegedly beating his girlfriend in a hotel room.

A rep for Crunchy Black tells us the rapper wants to move forward with his life and will handle the charges in court. Some advice ... don't move forward when the "don't walk" sign is flashing.

Nelly Arrest

I Let Shady Peeps On My Bus ...

Now I Gotta Be Like TSA

EXCLUSIVE

0413_nelly_tmzNelly's calling out some of the random people on his tour bus ... for getting him busted for drugs this weekend -- so now he's hand-picking who gets all access passes on his ride.

Nelly tells TMZ ... "I feel the need to take responsibility for my choices in needing to be more aware of all the people I associate with and allow onto my property."

We broke the story ... Nelly's attorney says there were 15 to 20 other people who had access to the bus before Saturday's bust. Nelly was arrested for possession of methamphetamine (his lawyer claims it was ecstasy) and marijuana, but he seems to be laying at least partial blame on someone else.

He adds, "While my instinct of course, is to be accessible to my friends, fans and acquaintances, the last thing I would want to do is compromise the respect and admiration of my friends, family and fans."

In other words ... no more free rides.

Nelly's lawyer is already mounting a defense in his meth arrest Saturday, claiming the drugs found weren't his.

Nelly was arrested on his tour bus in Tennessee after it was pulled over for not having proper stickers. Cops say they smelled pot, then searched the bus and allegedly found meth, marijuana and guns.

Nelly's lawyer, Scott Rosenblum, tells TMZ  there were 15 to 20 people who had access to the bus prior to the stop and there were multiple people on the bus when cops searched it. Rosenblum seems to take issue with cops on the meth issue saying, "a small quantity of [MDMA/Ecstasy] was discovered." 

Rosenblum adds, "Nelly will not be associated with the contraband that was allegedly discovered."

Nelly's tour bus got nailed by cops in Tennessee for a bunch of alleged offenses -- and the rapper  himself got hauled off to jail for felony possession of drugs ... including meth.

A state trooper pulled over the bus Saturday morning for not having a required Dept. of Transportation sticker ... and when the officer caught a strong whiff of pot ... he decided to conduct a search.

Cops say they found a baggie with crystal rocks that tested positive for meth, and a small amount of marijuana in the sleeper area of the bus. They say they also found quite the stash of guns -- a .50 caliber pistol, a .45 caliber pistol, and a .500 magnum Smith and Wesson.

Nelly was booked for the meth -- a felony -- and misdemeanor marijuana possession. He was also booked for drug paraphernalia -- cops say there were about 100 small Ziplock bags commonly used for the sale of drugs.

Another passenger, Brian Jones, was busted for possession of a handgun.
