7/13/2016 9:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


TMZ Sports has obtained Draymond Green's mug shot -- showing the NBA star smiling while wearing an "Attack the Glass" shirt ... after allegedly hitting a Michigan State football player. 

Green was arrested on July 10th after allegedly attacking 22-year-old Jermaine Edmondson -- a senior cornerback on the MSU football team. He's 6'0", 185 lbs. Draymond is 6'7", 240 lbs.

According to the police report, obtained by TMZ Sports, at least two officers witnessed Green slapping Edmondson across the face outside of Conrad's bar in East Lansing, Michigan in the early hours of July 10th. One officer said, "The sound of the slap was very loud."

Cops say they spoke with Edmondson who says the slap was the culmination of a 2-day feud that began at another bar the night before. 

Edmondson told police he was hanging out with his girlfriend when Green bumped into him. Edmondson says he told Green, "Hey bro, you can at least say 'Excuse me.'"

Green allegedly responded by saying, "Do you know who I am?" ... and added, "I pay for n**gas like you scholarships."

Edmondson says 2 of Green's associates then began to choke him out right in the bar. He later noticed that Green's associates choked his girlfriend as well. 

Edmondson says he and his GF left the bar without contacting police -- and returned to the bar scene the next day to celebrate his birthday. 

That's when he ran into Green again -- and was confronted by the NBA star. Edmondson says he told Green that "last night wasn't cool" and Green started to poke him in the shoulder. 

Edmondson says he told Green to take his hands off him -- and that's when "boom I'm punched in my jaw."

Edmondson says he did not fight back -- and responding cops did not witness any retaliation.

Cops responded and he told officers his neck and face hurt and he did want to take further action against Green.

Cops arrested Green -- and say he was drunk ... with a .10 blood alcohol level. 

During the arrest, cops say Green ADMITTED to slapping Edmondson -- and said "he was sorry" and "wanted to speak with him to make things right."

As for Green -- he issued a statement to reporters Wednesday morning saying, "My legal team is handling it. It will be resolved really quickly."

"As a public figure, I just can't put myself in certain situations. It's something that I'll learn from and just move on."

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

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

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.

NFL's Dan Skuta I Didn't Hit That Woman ... But She Hit Me

6/27/2016 2:53 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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."
