'Harry Potter' Actor Tearful Reunion With Pooch After Near-Fatal Car Crash

3/22/2017 10:37 AM PDT

'Harry Potter' actor Jim Tavaré is slowly recovering from the car accident that sent him to ICU for 2 weeks, and this week he got a dose of love from his pooch.

For the first time since the accident, Jim was taken outside of the hospital in a wheelchair to be reunited with his dog, Mr Kippy, who was more than ecstatic to see his master.

Mr Kippy had been in the car during Jim's head-on collision. Both miraculously survived ... the dog more unscathed than Jim, who is still mending from a broken neck and several other broken bones, as well as collapsed lungs.

He already looks better than he did weeks ago.

NFL's David Parry Charged In Golf Cart Attack ... Faces Serious Prison Time

3/7/2017 10:48 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0228-david-parry-mug-spd-01Indianapolis Colts lineman David Parry has been formally charged with multiple felonies for allegedly beating up a taxi cart driver in AZ and stealing the vehicle ... and now prison time is in play.

As we previously reported, Parry was arrested on February 25 after cops say he went on a drunken violent bender in Scottsdale ... in which he also verbally attacked the police.

Now, court docs show Parry has been charged with felony robbery, felony unlawful use of transportation and misdemeanor threats.

If convicted on all counts, Parry could face more than 5 years behind bars.

He's due back in court to be arraigned later this week. 

Jackie Warner Arrest Video Tense Moment at Gunpoint ... 'Stay in the F***ing Car!'

3/5/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Jackie Warner came face-to-face with a cop's gun during her arrest in West Hollywood, and TMZ obtained some intense video of her brief standoff with law enforcement. 

The video shows an L.A. County Sheriff's deputy aiming the gun while Jackie is behind the wheel of her car. The deputy's barking commands at Jackie, like ... "stay in the f****** car!" Jackie eventually emerged, in handcuffs, a white t-shirt, and a towel wrapped around her waist.

We broke the story ... the fitness queen crashed her car in WeHo, and when cops showed up things went south. Law enforcement sources say she backed into a patrol car ... forcing a deputy to jump out of harm's way, and leading to what happened in this video.

Jackie was arrested for felony assault with a deadly weapon. As for the towel around her waist ... we're guessing deputies put it on her. She was not wearing pants because, as sources connected to Jackie put it, she was "sleep driving" on Ambien. 

update_graphic_red_bar8:27 AM -- Jackie's rep tells TMZ, "It is unfortunate that a bystander filmed Jackie without her knowledge and then released that footage to the media in an obvious attempt to humiliate her."  The rep goes on, "Jackie was in an extremely vulnerable state, having driven in her sleep after taking doctor-prescribed Ambien." update_grey_gray_bar

Kris Jenner Rolls-Royce Accordion Up for Sale

2/19/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0216-kris-jenner-car-accident-car-sale-COPART-02The car Kris Jenner totaled just off the 101 can now be yours for about half its original sticker price.

Kris' discarded Roll-Royce is sitting on an L.A. car auction lot ... and the opening bid is $195k. Here's the good news ... the car still runs, but barely.

Kris' insurance company got the car after declaring it totaled, and then sold it to a random guy who's now trying to cash in on the Kardashian name.

The car retailed for around $400k, so a bargain, right?

0216-kris-jenner-car-accident-car-sale-COPART-01We broke the story ... Kris got cut off this past summer, causing her to crash her new ride, which was just a week old. Luckily, she had another one shipped out the next day.

Like we said, the wrecked Rolls still works -- but can only go forward and backward for now. In other words ... it needs to be fixed up before it can hit the streets again.

0216-kris-jenner-car-accident-scene-gallery-launch-TMZ-01BTW ... a brand new Rolls-Royce runs anywhere between $250k to upwards of $400k, and we're guessing Kris spared no expense on her own. Question here ... is KUWTK worth it?

Paul Walker Death Lawsuit Porsche Celebrated Carrera Crashes

2/15/2017 4:11 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0215-paul-walker-tmz-01A Porsche employee gleefully shared news with fellow employees of a slew of crashes of the Porsche Carrera GT -- the model in which Paul Walker died -- saying it would boost the value of the remaining cars.

In new legal docs obtained by TMZ, lawyers in Meadow Walker's wrongful death lawsuit against the car company revealed Porsche concealed emails from them ... emails about the Carrera.

One of the lawyers for Paul's daughter was reviewing company emails on his office computer that were heavily redacted. The lawyer was shocked when he reviewed the same emails on his iMac home computer and found he could see the portions that were not visible on the office computer.

Among the emails from 2006, an employee wrote as many as 200 of the 1280 Carrera GTs which Porsche had produced had been "totaled" in the first 2 years they were sold ... 2004 - 2006.

The Porsche employee who wrote the email goes on to say, "This would be great news to the remaining owners as the GT becomes more rare."

The employee also told this story ... "Another Carrera bites the dust as a bodyshop mechanic who claimed he was going less than 30 MPH smashed into a telephone poll. Looks like he was going more than 30 to me!"

0215-paul-walker-doc-2

There's another email from another employee who is reacting to the number of wrecks, saying, "This is in the back of my head every time I get behind the wheel of one of these. It's just hidden behind the shit-eating grin!"

Paul died in 2013 when he was a passenger in a Carrera GT that swerved out of control, hit a lamp post and tree and then burst into flames.

We reached out to Meadow's lawyer, Jeffrey Milam, who told us, "Any ethical company would have withdrawn the car from the market -- or, at the very least, warned the public about its dangers."

The lawyers are asking the judge to impose sanctions on Porsche for allegedly deliberately hiding the emails from them.

We called Porsche ... so far, no response.

Mischa Barton Crashes U-Haul into Apartment

2/12/2017 6:58 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Mischa Barton crashed into an apartment building Saturday night ... literally, with the help of a U-Haul.

Mischa moved out of the West Hollywood building in which she had been living ... this after a meltdown caught on video which resulted in her hospitalization late last month.

The 'O.C.' star put all her stuff in the U-Haul and drove to another WeHo building right below the Sunset Strip, but she misjudged the height of the carport and the top of the U-Haul slammed into the overhead support.

She was clearly shaken after the crash, saying everything she owns is inside the vehicle.

It's a little weird ... she moved out of her old apartment Wednesday but it seems she was driving the U-Haul around town for several days before landing at her new digs.

Mischa's old neighbors had complained she was disruptive to the point cops were called every few months.

Jamie Lynn Spears' Daughter Warnings and Lawsuits Over ATV

2/7/2017 12:50 AM PST
Exclusive Details

0206-jamie-maddie-spears-atv-instagram-01Jamie Lynn Spears' daughter, Maddie, probably should not have been a driver or a passenger in the Polaris that flipped over and critically injured her, and we've learned there's been a big problem with the company's ATVs rolling over.

The Polaris in question, the RZR 170, has an instruction manual which reads in part, "Never allow a child under age 10 to operate or ride as a passenger in this vehicle." There is a qualifier ... "Permit continued use only if you [the parent] determine that your child has the ability and maturity to operate safely."

Maddie is not close to 10 ... she's 8 years old.

0206-sub-polaris-age-limit-polaris-manual-01We've also found lawsuits involving RZRs that flip over. In one case, the RZR -- not the 170 -- rolled and the metal portions of the roll cage pinned the driver's head and neck, fracturing his spine.

There's another case in which a RZR flipped and the driver was severely injured when the roll cage collapsed on her.

We contacted the company that appears to have sold Maddie's family the RZR 170, but they had no comment other than to offer prayers to the child.

A spokesperson for Polaris tells us, "The safety of our riders is our absolute top priority. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family."

TMZ broke the story ... Maddie was critically injured Sunday when her RZR flipped over and submerged into a pond, trapping her underwater for several minutes as her mother and stepfather frantically tried to remove her seat belt.
