'B&B' Star Winsor Harmon Arrested Again for Drunk in Public ... Snoozin' in SUV

5/26/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Winsor Harmon's gotta learn how to booze and head the hell home -- the soap star got arrested again for being drunk in public ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us the ex-'Bold and the Beautiful' stud was busted earlier this month after cops were called to check on a man sleeping in his car in a burb of the San Fernando Valley. Upon arrival, we're told cops discovered Winsor sleeping in his SUV.

Sources say Winsor was passed out in the back seat, and that beer cans were all over the floorboard. One of the SUV's tires was also flat, apparently. Winsor eventually woke up, and appeared disoriented and inebriated after exiting the vehicle, according to police. 

Cops determined he was too drunk to care for himself, so they cuffed him and took him to jail. He was eventually released and issued a citation. 

Not much different from a few months ago when Winsor was initially arrested for drunk in public -- except this time there didn't appear to be any alleged public peeing. Dun-dun!

Harvey Weinstein Prosecutors Eyeing Obscure Law in Investigation

5/25/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Harvey Weinstein is now in the crosshairs of federal prosecutors who are looking to possibly prosecute him under a law that some legal experts say is a giant stretch.

Law enforcement sources tell us, the U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of New York is looking to see if Weinstein violated the Mann Act. It now prohibits people from taking others across state lines with the intent of engaging in illegal sexual acts. The law was initially designed to prevent adults from transporting minors across state lines for sex.

The law requires the suspect to have formed the intent to commit the act before taking the victim across state lines.

Our sources say prosecutors are looking at at least one actress whom Weinstein flew from one state to another. The stretch is that they will have to prove he asked the actress to travel, knowing that he was going to rape her when she arrived at the destination.

The difficulty in such a case ... Weinstein may have wanted to have sex, but didn't assume from the get-go he would have to rape the woman.

As we reported, Weinstein will turn himself in today on state sexual assault charges.

Weinstein has maintained the sexual encounters he has had were all consensual. 

Harvey Weinstein Will be Charged with a Sex Crime

Exclusive Details

1:10 PM PT -- Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Weinstein is scheduled to surrender Friday between 7 and 9 AM ET at the Manhattan D.A.'s Office in lower Manhattan. We are told he will receive and post bail the same day.Harvey Weinstein will be charged with a sex crime and will surrender Friday ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ at least one woman is the alleged victim -- Lucia Evans. She claims Weinstein forced her to perform oral sex on him in 2004.

Lucia is one of dozens of women who have come forward with allegations of sexual assault. Although the D.A. has been reviewing several cases, this is the farthest any of the cases have gotten.

Weinstein was in Malibu Wednesday at 1 PM. TMZ obtained the photo of him at Taverna Tony restaurant. This is the first time we have seen the disgraced movie mogul in California since he began his stint in rehab in Arizona.

We're told arrangements are being made for the surrender, which is expected Friday.

The U.S. Attorney in New York is also investigating Weinstein.

Nicole Eggert No Regrets In Baio Case!!!

5/24/2018 1:31 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Nicole Eggert says she knew it'd be a long shot for law enforcement to find a prosecutable case against Scott Baio -- but she doesn't regret for a second pursuing her allegations.

Nicole talked to us about her moral victory over Baio. We broke the story ... Baio won't be prosecuted for allegedly molesting Nicole while working on "Charles in Charge." Still, our sources say the D.A. believed Nicole's story. 

She says she doesn't regret pursuing the case as vigorously as she did, because she says she wanted her truth out there. Nicole also told us whether she'd accept an apology from Baio, at this point.

Baio's rep says “According to on the record statements from the Los Angeles District Attorney, TMZ's source on this matter is incorrect, and the status of the case is unchanged. Similarly, we do not believe the various claims about comments about the strength of Ms. Eggert’s allegations are accurate. Ms. Eggert is now also subject to a restraining order for stalking a Baio fan using social media, which she has already violated. We believe Scott will be fully vindicated when this matter actually concludes, and Ms. Eggert will then be held fully accountable for her untrue and defamatory claims.”

TMZ reported the fact the D.A. handling the case found Nicole "credible" after meeting with her Wednesday, and that Scott would not be prosecuted based on the statute of limitations.

Our information is based on unimpeachable law enforcement sources directly connected to the case.

Talent Agent Tyler Grasham D.A. Rejects 4 Cases

5/24/2018 10:29 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Talent agent Tyler Grasham can breathe a sigh of relief because the L.A. County District Attorney has just rejected all 4 sexual assault cases that have been under investigation.

One of the cases involves an alleged victim who claims he met Grasham when he was 15 and Grasham was 34. The alleged victim claimed they were at a party when Grasham performed oral sex on him. That case was rejected because the statute of limitations had run.

In the second case, the alleged victim was 17 when he claims Grasham plied him with alcohol until he fell asleep. He says when he awoke Grasham was performing anal sex on him. That case was also beyond the statute of limitations.

The third case ... the alleged victim, who is now 25, allegedly met Grasham back in 2014 on Tinder and claims Grasham stuck his hand down his pants. That case was rejected by the D.A. but referred to the L.A. City Attorney for possible misdemeanor prosecution.

The fourth case ... a man, who is currently 20 years old, claims he met Grasham online last year, and they met up and drank. He claims Grasham gave him Xanax and blueberries laced with pot and performed anal sex against his will. That case was rejected for insufficient evidence.

Jacquees Arrested for Drugs After Speeding at 116 MPH

5/24/2018 11:31 AM PDT

Jacquees didn't make it hard for cops to pull him over and subsequently arrest him this week -- he was allegedly driving over 100 MPH ... and got busted for weed.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Jacuqees was arrested near Atlanta early Thursday morning after police pulled him over for speeding. Cops say he clocked in at 116 MPH. Before stopping, police say something was tossed out of Jacquees' passenger side window, which they claim he later told them was marijuana. They say they found 3 more grams inside.

He was taken to jail and booked for speeding, reckless driving, littering and possession of a controlled substance. His passenger was also booked for possession. 

This is the second run-in with law enforcement in about a month for Jacquees. He was briefly detained at an airport in Milwaukee a couple weeks ago after getting into an argument with someone, and then allegedly telling a cop he was "just a white boy with a badge."

5/24/2018 8:36 AM PDT
Breaking News

9:45 AM PT -- Freeman tells TMZ ... “Anyone who knows me or has worked with me knows I am not someone who would intentionally offend or knowingly make anyone feel uneasy. I apologize to anyone who felt uncomfortable or disrespected — that was never my intent.”Morgan Freeman is being accused of sexual harassment or misconduct by 8 women over several years on the sets of his movies ... or during media events related to his projects.

One of the allegations comes from a production assistant who worked on Freeman's movie in 2015, "Going In Style." She told CNN Morgan repeatedly tried to lift up her skirt to see if she was wearing underwear, and commented on her figure. She says costar Alan Arkin saw it happening and told Freeman to stop.

Another woman who worked on "Now You See Me" claims Freeman also made comments about her body as well as another female staffer's. She says women on set knew to cover up whenever he was around.

CNN reporter Chloe Melas said she too was subject to Freeman's misconduct ... when she was 6 months pregnant and interviewing him during a media junket. Melas claims Freeman told her she looked ripe, and repeatedly insinuated he wished he'd been there when she got pregnant.

In all, CNN says it spoke to 16 people -- 8 who claim they were victims, and 8 who witnessed Freeman's misconduct.

Richie Incognito Claimed to Be NSA Agent ... Cops Say

5/24/2018 11:19 AM PDT
Breaking News

Richie Incognito was suffering an "altered, paranoid state" when confronted by police at a Florida gym ... "and believed ordinary citizens were government officials that were tracking him."

That's just one part of the disturbing police report describing the bizarre events at Lifetime Fitness in Boca Raton, Florida on May 23. 

TMZ Sports broke the story ... cops were called to the gym when another patron said the NFL lineman snapped and attacked him with a dumbbell

When cops arrived, they asked Incognito what was going on and his answer was troubling.

"There's a guy walking around with headphones on," Incognito said ... "I'm running NSA class level 3 documents through my phone. I can't have anybody in blue tooth capability of me or taking pictures of me."

The officer says he asked Incognito why the government was trying to watch him and Richie told the cop he didn't have high enough clearance. 

When pressed by officers, Incognito told a nearby woman to call the FBI. 

Cops ultimately decided to detain Incognito for an involuntary psychiatric hold -- but, due to his large frame, they decided to cuff him in two sets of handcuffs linked together. 

He was transported to a nearby mental health facility for evaluation. 

As we previously reported, several people close to Richie are concerned for his well-being -- including the gym attack victim -- and they all want him to get the help he needs.

Donald Trump Pardons Boxer Jack Johnson ... Thanks to Stallone!

5/24/2018 10:29 AM PDT
Breaking News

Donald Trump announced he was posthumously pardoning the first black heavyweight champion Jack Johnson on Thursday ... and it seems a lot of credit goes to Sylvester Stallone!!

Johnson was convicted more than 100 years ago of violating the Mann Act by transporting a white woman across state lines.

The conviction, largely seen as racist and an abuse of the legal system, has been urged by many in the boxing community to be pardoned for years.

But, per POTUS, it was Rocky himself who swayed him to make the full pardon, tweeting back in April:

"Sylvester Stallone called me with the story of heavyweight boxing champion Jack Johnson. His trials and tribulations were great, his life complex and controversial. Others have looked at this over the years, most thought it would be done, but yes, I am considering a Full Pardon!"

On Thursday, Trump made that happen.

And just a few minutes ago, Sly and boxing studs Lennox Lewis and Deontay Wilder celebrated the move with a punchy photo op in Washington D.C. 

Scott Baio Sexual Assault Case D.A. Believes Nicole Eggert ... But, Baio Won't Be Prosecuted

5/23/2018 3:25 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Scott Baio will not be prosecuted for allegedly sexually assaulting Nicole Eggert during the run of "Charles in Charge," but we've learned the D.A. found her credible.

Sources familiar with the case tell us on Wednesday Nicole met the L.A. County Deputy D.A., who is reviewing the case. Our sources say the D.A. found Nicole's allegations "credible." As we reported, Eggert claimed Baio repeatedly molested her between ages 14 and 18. Baio insists they had sex only once ... when she was 18.

Our sources say the D.A. called the case "potentially prosecutable" ... were it not for the statute of limitations.

Under current law there's no statute of limitations if an adult sexually assaults a minor. But, when the alleged assaults occurred in the '80s, the statute of limitations was 3 years, which means it has long since run out.

There's an argument that old cases could still be prosecuted if the statute hadn't run when the law changed, but in this case the statute ran before the law changed, so case closed.

Eggert tells TMZ, "I always knew this case was beyond statutes of limitations and unfortunately the DA would not be able to prosecute Scott Baio. However I also knew the importance of laying the groundwork for any future victims of Baio's that may come forward and to warn parents who might unknowingly allow their children to be alone with this molester." 

She goes on ... "I could no longer keep up the lie he conditioned me into and felt it a Mother's responsibility to put the truth out there."

Baio had no comment.

5/23/2018 12:55 PM PDT
Breaking News

Ex-MLB star Lenny Dykstra was arrested early Wednesday morning in New Jersey after allegedly pulling a gun on an Uber driver and threatening to kill him.

Oh, and cops say he also had cocaine and ecstasy on him at the time of the arrest.

Officials say the 55-year-old was busted outside Linden, NJ police headquarters after a terrified Uber driver told authorities Dykstra pulled a gun, put it to his head, and threatened to kill him. 

So, what set Dykstra off?

The driver claims Lenny had asked to change destinations during the ride -- but the driver refused ... and Lenny flipped out.

Cops say the Uber driver furiously began honking the horn in the hopes of signaling police -- and then finally ran from  the car and alerted police.

When cops got to Dykstra, they did NOT find a gun ... however, they did find cocaine, marijuana, and MDMA (ecstasy).

Dykstra was arrested for making terroristic threats, and numerous drug possession offenses.

He was taken to Union County Jail ... where he was later released.

Dykstra hit up Twitter this afternoon to address the arrest ... quoting Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off" ... "But I keep cruising, can't stop, won't stop moving, It's like I got this music in my mind, sayin' gonna be alright."

EXCLUSIVE

The man who was attacked by Richie Incognito tells TMZ Sports he isn't mad at the NFL star -- he just wants the guy to get help. 

We spoke with Mark ... who tells us he was working out in a turf area in the outside area of his gym in Florida when Richie came out and started acting in a bizarre and erratic way.

Richie then started cutting off Mark while he was jogging in the area ... and when Mark called him out, Richie pegged him with a tennis ball. 

Mark says Richie grabbed a sled and "tried to run me over" and then grabbed a dumbbell and launched it at him. 

That's when Mark called 911 -- and Richie accused him of working for the government. 

Cops arrived and put Incognito in handcuffs before placing him on an involuntary psychiatric hold

Mark tells us he doesn't want to press charges -- he just wants Richie to get the help he needs.
