EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber's head of security unleashed a stream in EPIC proportions after he was arrested for DUI ... and TMZ's obtained the police body cam footage that'll BLOW. YOUR. MIND.

The footage starts with Bieber's bodyguard, Michael Arana, in the back of a squad car after he was busted back in November 2017. You can see and hear him tell the officer he needs to use the restroom. The cop replies, "How bad is it?" Michael says, "Real bad" ... and he was NOT kidding.

Check it out ... what happens next was life imitating art. Hence, this 'Revenge of the Nerds 2' clip, which is EXACTLY what crossed the cop's mind after Michael finally finished. INSANE.

We broke the story ... Michael was arrested in Miami after the car he was driving in smashed into a police car, badly injuring the cops, one of whom was so badly injured he was airlifted to a hospital.

Michael lucked out BIG TIME because he avoided felony charges

6/23/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The damages to the G-Wagon Mac Miller crashed will be someone else's problem ... once a winning bid's accepted at auction. 

The whip's being auctioned off by the fine folks at Copart. The insurance company totaled the vehicle, because the repair cost exceeded its value.

The estimated retail value of the car is around $100k ... the top bid so far is just north of $12k. Buyer beware ... the car's got a few scratches, to say the least. 

The auction runs through Wednesday.

TMZ broke the story ... Mac crashed and knocked over a utility pole back in May. He was arrested at his home for DUI and hit and run after admitting to driving drunk. So far, he has not been charged, but if he is and he's convicted ... it'll be Uber time. 

Jim Jones Busted for Drugs, Gun Possession ... Chased Down by Cops

6/21/2018 1:10 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jim Jones is facing a handful of charges after he and friends led Georgia cops on a chase that ended with him getting busted for possession of drugs and a handgun ... TMZ has learned.

The NYC rapper was a backseat passenger in a car cops pulled over Thursday night in Cowetta County. According to the Sheriff's Dept., instead of stopping, the car accelerated and cops gave chase. During the chase, the car struck a deputy's vehicle ... and finally stopped.

We're told Jones and three others were in the car. After a search, deputies found marijuana, oxycodone, Percocet, vape cartridges, THC oil, 2 loaded pistols and cash ... which Jones called "just petty cash." 

One of the pistols was stolen, according to cops. Neither Jones nor his friends admitted possession of any of the items ... but Jones said he had a prescription for the Oxy and Percocet pills. Jones also told cops he told the driver to pull over, but she was acting "incoherent."

Since no one claimed the paraphernalia ... everyone was busted. Jones was charged for possession of the stolen gun, possession of a firearm during commission of a crime and possession of narcotics ... all felonies. He also got a misdemeanor for the prescription pills not being in their original container.

Jones was released on $7,000 bail.

Lil Scrappy's Car Wreck Injured Friend I Lawyered Up Because ...

6/16/2018 12:10 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Lil Scrappy's passenger who suffered horrible injuries in their recent car accident wants to set the record straight -- he's NOT a vengeful friend out for money.

Ca$ino Roulette tells us the reason he hired a lawyer is simply because he needs help navigating Florida laws and his medical insurance coverage. Ca$ino is from South Carolina, and had driven down to FL with Scrappy ... hours before the wreck. 

CR says he's still boys with Scrappy and gives a play-by-play of what happened in the aftermath of the crash. TMZ broke the story ... Scrappy fell asleep at the wheel and broke his foot in 7 places, but Roulette was in the ICU for 3 days, and required 2 major surgeries for a ruptured large intestine.

He makes it clear he's not out to sue Scrappy. In fact, their tight friendship was on full display immediately after the crash -- "busted gut" and all.

Lil Scrappy's Car Wreck Injured Friend Lawyers Up ... Scrappy's Gotta Pay for My Pain!!!

EXCLUSIVE

Lil Scrappy's friend, Ca$ino Roulette, got the worst of it when they got into that horrific car accident in Florida earlier this month, and now he's preparing to sue over his extensive injuries ... TMZ has learned.

Ca$ino's attorney, Brett L. Schlacter, tells us ... Ca$ino sustained life-altering injuries and is "lucky to be alive." He feels Scrappy was negligent and reckless when he fell asleep at the wheel. Surveillance video of the crash shows they're both damn lucky.

We're told Roulette was in ICU for 3 days following the accident and is now home in South Carolina recovering from his injuries -- broken ribs, concussion, bruised lungs, liver and kidneys -- and 2 major surgeries to repair his ruptured large intestine.

Schlacter says Ca$ino's pursuing legal action to cover medical expenses, and to get compensation for life-altering injuries and significant wage loss.

Lil Scrappy tells us he has no recollection of falling asleep, but admits he might have overdone it by driving too much in one day.

We broke the story ... police say Scrappy won't face criminal charges for the accident. His friendship with Ca$ino, on the other hand, might be tried in court.

EXCLUSIVE

Lil Scrappy's car crash this past weekend was caught on camera ... and, judging by the footage, the rapper is lucky to be alive.

TMZ obtained surveillance footage of Scrappy's white Mercedes veering off the road in Aventura, FL, near Miami, and slamming into a utility pole ... grille first. Based on the clip, it's unclear what exactly caused Scrappy -- who cops listed as the driver -- to crash. 

Witnesses were quick to dial 911 too, and you can tell they were gravely concerned for Scrappy and his friend, Ca$ino Roulette, by the nature of the frantic call. Luckily, Aventura PD was quick to respond to the scene, as noted in the audio. 

As we reported ... Scrappy and his friend were hospitalized as a result of their injuries. The 'Love & Hip Hop' star also avoided any criminal charges in the matter. He blamed the crash on sleep deprivation.

Lil Scrappy Avoids Criminal Charges For Now Over Nasty Car Crash

6/6/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Lil Scrappy just got the same treatment from cops that Offset received after crashing his whip -- he won't be facing prosecution over the accident ... at least for now.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ that police have closed their investigation into Scrappy's violent car wreck over the weekend -- which left him and a friend hospitalized and seriously injured. As we reported ... Scrappy says he doesn't remember the crash or the aftermath.

We're told cops didn't find any evidence of drugs or alcohol, and no other cars or witnesses were involved ... which led to their decision not to pursue criminal charges against the driver -- whom they believe was Scrappy.

What police did find, however, was nearby surveillance footage that captured the crash, which cops say shows Scrappy's car veering off the road, hitting a utility pole. Scrappy blamed it on exhaustion.

Here's the kicker ... although Scrappy won't be charged, sources say the case could be reopened if, God forbid, someone dies. Remember, Scrappy's friend, Ca$ino Roulette, was in ICU because his injuries were so serious.

Here's hoping for a speedy recovery.

EXCLUSIVE

The guy who claims Dr. Phil badly injured him when his car allegedly plowed into him has some explaining to do ... because we got the surveillance video and he didn't seem hurt at all.

TMZ has obtained video of the October incident, which shows Dr. Phil trying to pass a van in front of him on the way out of the Universal Studios parking structure. You see him pull around the van ... coming in contact with the skateboarder.

The impact seems pretty mild -- and the skateboarder was able to get up and shake Dr. Phil's hand. As we previously reported, the skateboarder told Phil he was fine, but after a passerby called paramedics, he told the EMT's he was injured. 

As we reported ... the skateboarder was gearing up to sue Dr. Phil, claiming he experienced pain and injuries after the fact. We've reached out to the alleged victim's attorney, John H. Mardoyan, who tells us ... "After viewing the video footage, we have decided to no longer represent Terrence Bembury in the matter."

Case closed.

Sources close to the 'Love & Hip Hop' star tell us Scrappy was cruising along early Sunday morning with a friend as they were leaving the King of Diamonds strip club in Miami. We're told Scrappy believes his buddy fell asleep at the wheel, however cops list Scrappy as the driver in the crash. Either way ... they slammed into a pole, totaling the car.

Neither could coherently explain what had happened. The report also notes there were no witnesses ... and no citations issued. Cops say the car was probably driving too fast for the conditions.

Scrappy eventually came to at a hospital, but sources say he doesn't remember who found him or how he got there. We're told he is seriously injured, with a broken foot that needs to be operated on. We're told his friend, Ca$ino, is in ICU ... Scrappy is not.

Ex-NBA player Rasual Butler had multiple substances in his system at the time of his fatal crash back in January ... including alcohol, marijuana and painkillers ... according to the autopsy obtained by TMZ Sports

As we previously reported, Butler was behind the wheel of a Range Rover -- with a female passenger, Leah LaBelle -- when he lost control around 2:30 AM and crashed into parking meters and a concrete wall. Both died immediately from injuries suffered in the crash

Toxicology results show Butler's blood alcohol level was tested from blood collected from his heart and leg. The heart sample showed a BAC of .118, above the legal limit.

The leg sample showed a .062, which is under the legal limit. One law enforcement source told us the results are consistent with a person who was legally drunk. 

Tests also show Butler tested positive for cannabinoids (marijuana), methamphetamine and oxycodone.

Breaking News

Offset just paid back the good Samaritan who he says saved his life following his accident with a new car, so the guy won't ever have to walk to and from work again.

We broke the story ... the Migos rapper totaled his green Dodge Challenger in Atlanta earlier this month. He said he was swerving to avoid hitting a "crackhead" in the road. 

The good Samaritan, Jamar, had been walking to work when he saw Offset climbing out of the wrecked car... at least that's how Offset described it. Offset says now Jamar will be driving around a new whip, instead. 

The wreck was so bad Offset had to go to the hospital where his hand was bandaged. It's unclear exactly what Jamar did, but Offset says he got him to his destination safely. 

As for Jamar's new whip ... it appears to be a Nissan Altima.
