"Leonard is okay and was able to drive home."

Dennis Rodman Was On Probation During DUI Arrest ... Jail Likely

1/15/2018 6:38 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Dennis Rodman's DUI problems have gone from bad to worse ... because he was on probation during his arrest on Saturday -- and it likely means he'll be thrown in the slammer.

The probation stems from a plea deal Rodman struck over a July 2016 wrong way crash -- where he was going the wrong way on an Orange County, CA freeway, struck a car and allegedly fled the scene. Witnesses also saw him drinking at a karaoke bar before the crash but he was not charged with DUI for that incident.

However, Rodman was placed on 3 years probation with the condition he stay out of trouble. It was a good deal for Rodman, considering he was facing up to 2 years in prison.

So, what happens next? Officials will likely revoke his probation in the wake of the new arrest and he could be sent to prison for the full 2 years he was originally due to serve in the wrong way crash case PLUS any additional time for the new arrest.

Rodman's rep has told TMZ Sports the NBA player needs rehab -- but it could be too little, too late. 

Terry Glenn High & Drunk During Fatal Crash ... Autopsy Shows

1/6/2018 12:35 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Ex-NFL star Terry Glenn had marijuana in his system during his fatal car crash -- and his blood alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit ... this according to the autopsy report obtained by TMZ Sports

Glenn's fiancee told police they were returning home from a Dallas Cowboys game on Nov. 20 when Glenn smashed his truck into a concrete divider, ejecting the WR from the vehicle. He suffered major injuries and was pronounced dead a short time later. 

At the time, Glenn's fiancee told police she wasn't sure if Glenn had consumed alcohol before getting behind the wheel ... but now, toxicology tests reveal he was impaired with a .165 BAC. 

Tests also reveal Glenn had significant traces of marijuana in his system -- which could explain why cops found a marijuana grinder and bottle in the crash wreckage

According to the report, Glenn's cause of death is listed as an "accident" due to blunt force trauma. 

He was 43. 

Venus Williams Deposition 'All I Saw Was A Green Light' ... But She Told Cops Light Was 'Turning'

12/21/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Venus Williams insisted to lawyers the traffic light was "always" green as she drove across the intersection where she had the fatal car accident -- but that doesn't match up with what she told police on the scene.

TMZ Sports obtained a portion of Venus' recorded deposition in the wrongful death lawsuit filed against her by Jerome Barson's family. During the depo, taken Nov. 9, Venus repeatedly says she only saw a green light. If true ... it would mean the Barsons, traveling perpendicular to Venus, had run a red light when they t-boned Venus.

The potential problem for Venus is that's not how witnesses remember it, and it's not even how Venus remembered it while talking to Palm Beach Gardens PD. Body cam footage shows her saying, "As I was going to start again, I saw that the light was turning red." The exchange begins at 40 seconds.

If Venus saw the light turning red, that would mean the Barsons did have a green light as they proceeded through the intersection. In fact, according to the police investigation, witnesses said the Barsons DID have a green.

As we reported, the police cleared Venus of any criminal wrongdoing in the accident -- saying neither party was to blame.

Meanwhile, the wrongful death suit is moving forward and likely headed for court where a jury will have to decide if Venus was negligent as she crossed the intersection. 

Venus Williams Won't Be Charged in Fatal Accident

12/20/2017 3:21 PM PST
Breaking News

Venus Williams is not at fault for her fatal car accident, but neither is the driver of the other vehicle ... according to the police investigation.

Palm Beach Gardens PD released their findings on Wednesday and said no charges will be filed in the case. Cops say neither Venus nor the Barsons -- the couple in the car that t-boned Venus -- violated the other's right of way.

TMZ Sports got the video which shows exactly what went down in the June 9 car wreck.

Venus told police on the scene she was "caught in the middle" of the intersection because a 3rd vehicle had turned in front of her as the light was turning. You can see that car at about 17 seconds in our video ... the police say it was a Nissan Altima and they spoke to the driver. 

They concluded the Altima driver DID violate Venus' right of way. However, police also aren't blaming the Altima driver for the wreck. 

The Barsons drove through the intersection when the light turned green and smashed into Venus. Jerome Barson later died from his injuries.
