Pacman Jones Booted from Casino Before Hotel Arrest ... 'Berated Staff, Patrons'

1/24/2017 10:02 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0124-pacman-jones-gettyupdate_graphic_red_bar12:59 PM PT -- Pacman's lawyer Tim Schneider tells TMZ Sports he believes the NFL star was thrown out of the casino under suspicious circumstances. 

Schneider says Pacman had been gambling loudly with friends for several hours -- and losing -- and the casino had no issue. 

It was only when Pacman's luck began to change that his volume became a problem.

Schneider says when Pacman was asked to leave, he did so without incident and says, "No charges came about as a result of the incident."update_grey_gray_barPacman Jones was kicked out of a Cincinnati casino for berating staffers and patrons in the hours before he was arrested at a Hyatt hotel on January 3 ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Cincinnati PD has confirmed Jones was "acting disorderly" at JACK Cincinnati Casino and was asked to leave. Security and police escorted the NFL star out of the building. 

One witness tells us Jones had verbally attacked employees at the casino and had an altercation with a casino patron who was trying to record the incident on his cell phone. 

We're told Jones also went off on a police officer who responded to the scene and was "fired up" as he left the premises. 

Of course, Jones later went to a nearby hotel where he was arrested for allegedly getting physical with a hotel security guard. 

When cops arrived at the hotel, Jones continued his aggressive behavior and told the arresting officer "suck my d***" and "I hope you die."

Jones issued a statement saying he was embarrassed by the arrest video and is taking anger management courses.

We reached out to Jones' rep for comment about the casino incident -- so far, no word back. 

It's not the first time Jones has been booted from a casino -- he was kicked out of the Hollywood Casino in Indiana in 2015 after going off on casino staffers. 

Shia LaBeouf Trump Protest Now On NYPD's Radar

EXCLUSIVE

0123_cop_car_at_shia_protestShia LaBeouf's round-the-clock webcam protest of President Trump has a new viewer ... the NYPD.

Shia's group chants of "He will not divide us" have been drawing crowds outside NYC's Museum of the Moving Image since Friday afternoon -- at times there are several dozen people there joining in the action.

We noticed an NYPD van was also on the scene Monday, and cops tell us it's gonna be that way for a while. We're told at least one unit will be stationed at the protest, mostly for crowd control.

There's another potential issue -- haters looking to start trouble with Shia. On Sunday, he came dangerously close to getting physical with one such person.

Police tell us they were unaware of the near fight, but they'll be Johnny-on-the-spot at the protest for as long as necessary -- which Shia says will be at least the next 4 years.

EXCLUSIVE

0120-teairra-mari-tmz-02Teairra Mari just had her Uber beatdown case dropped ... because the driver refused to take the stand.

Prosecutors moved to dismiss 3 charges against the "Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood" star for allegedly beating the hell out of a driver and stealing his charger ... the judge agreed and tossed the case.

More good news for Mari ... according to court docs, her $26k bail money was returned. You'll recall ... Mari was a wanted woman this past summer when she was a no-show in court, but she got her act together and surrendered to cops.

As for why the driver flaked ... Mari's attorney, Lonnie Brandon, tells us the driver knew his story wouldn't hold water.

Either way ... Mari's a free woman again. We're also guessing she switched to Lyft.

The MMA star and ex-MTV host is accused of beating up and stalking an ex-girlfriend in 2013 ... and he appeared in court Thursday in Orange County, CA for day 1 of his trial.

During the proceeding, Miller's lawyer explained that his client and the accuser had a pretty twisted sex life complete with threesomes, sex parties, choking and golden showers (peeing on each other).

1/18/2017 2:33 PM PST

0118-dominic-puopolo-getty-04The man who said on video he planned to assassinate Donald Trump at Friday's inauguration once spoke harshly about the 9/11 terrorists ... in no small part because his mom died on one of the planes.

Dominic Puopolo's mom, Sonia, was on American Airlines flight 11 from Boston to L.A. when it was hijacked and flown into the north tower of the World Trade Center.

The family made news back then because Sonia's hand with her wedding ring was found in the rubble. 

Then-senator Hillary Clinton eulogized Sonia during her funeral in Boston. Clinton knew Sonia through work at the Red Cross. She was a big Hillary supporter.

After the attacks Dominic flew to Hamburg where he attended the trial of 9/11 mastermind Mounir El Motassadeq.

Stevie J Joseline's Off the Hook in Defamation Suit

1/18/2017 4:19 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0118-stevie-j-joseline-hernandez-tmzStevie J either had a big change of heart about suing his baby mama, Joseline Hernandez ... or maybe he's just absentminded about court dates.

Stevie's defamation lawsuit against Joseline was dismissed Wednesday by a Georgia judge, because he was a no-show for a scheduled hearing. You'll recall ... Stevie sued Joseline in October after he says she continued to accuse him of molesting his daughter, which he denied.

At the time she was pregnant with their kid, but since she gave birth he's admitted being gaga over the infant, and attempted to squash all beef with Joseline.

Walking away from this lawsuit should help things.

A woman is suing the famous Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas over horrific bites she says she got from a bed bug swarm, and she has creepy crawly video to back it up.

Cindi Avila claims she checked into the hotel back in January 2016 and woke up with bites all over her body ... some of which left her scarred. In docs, Avila says a bed bug infestation erupted in her room, and she's blaming the hotel for failing to change the bed skirt.

Avila says she shot video of the bugs in action when she lifted mattress. She's suing for damages, mental anguish and medical costs. 

An Atlantis Resort rep tells us the hotel "immediately took the room out of service, brought in the property’s professional pest company to eradicate the problem" and compensated Avila for her stay.

The rep also says they offered to reimburse her medical bills ... but Avila said no dice.
