6/19/2018 2:55 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The Denver Broncos WR who allegedly tried to hide weed from the cops -- by shoveling it into his mouth -- is catching a break ... because he's not going to jail for his afternoon snack.

As we previously reported, Carlos Henderson was arrested in January when cops say he tried to conceal the sticky-icky evidence by eating it -- unsuccessfully -- during a routine traffic stop.

Henderson -- who's going into his 2nd NFL season -- was charged with possession of marijuana and was facing up to 6 months in jail.

But, don't worry ... Henderson's not getting locked up.

Instead, we're told he was admitted into a diversion program that'll essentially only require him to keep his nose clean for the next 3 months -- and if he does, the case will be thrown out.

Breaking News

LiAngelo Ball is finally ready to laugh at that whole international crime incident in China ... and he's doing it all for a new Foot Locker commercial. 

Remember, it was just 7 months ago ... Gelo -- along with 2 teammates from UCLA -- were detained in China after stealing several pairs of designer sunglasses and other accessories from multiple stores in Hangzhou. 

UCLA -- along with Chinese billionaire Jack Ma -- worked with Chinese officials to bring the players back home. LiAngelo left UCLA a short time later and moved to Lithuania to play pro ball overseas

Now, Ball is joking about the whole situation for Foot Locker's new "One and Done" campaign ... in which the host brags that the new apparel is an "absolute steal," while cutting to Gelo. 

The host jokingly realizes his mistake and says he meant to say, "The price is so good it must be criminal."

Get it?! Good times ... 

Wonder if UCLA and Jack Ma are laughing?

20-year-old Cassius Shakembe Williams -- along with another man -- have been arrested and each charged with 2 counts of capital murder in the shooting deaths of 2 men in Mesquite, TX on June 12. 

Officials believe the victims were attempting to sell marijuana to Williams and his friend, when the buyers pulled out guns and demanded they hand over the weed. 

Shots were fired and the two alleged dealers were killed. 

Capital murder is essentially the same as 1st degree murder -- and if convicted, it carries the death penalty. 

Williams is a former football player himself -- who was a 6'1", 290 lb defensive tackle at Central State University.

EXCLUSIVE

A recurring cast member from MTV's "Siesta Key" got popped for having pot ... TMZ has learned.

Paul Apostolides, better known as Pauly Paul on the show, was arrested Wednesday in Sarasota, FL -- not far from where the show is filmed.

Paul, who is an aspiring rapper, had failed to show up in court for a drinking in public charge, so a cop was conducting surveillance.

According to the police report, when the officer pulled over Paul, he smelled weed and Paul confessed to having a couple bags on him. The weed weighed in at 27.6 grams, but in Florida anything over 20 grams is considered a felony. 

Paul also had a suspended licence and expired vehicle tags.

He was released on $1,500 bond.

Suge Knight Can't Leave Jail for Mom's Funeral

6/18/2018 11:41 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Suge Knight's chances of getting out of jail to attend his mother's funeral have dwindled down to about zero ... because rules are rules.

We spoke to the L.A. County Sheriff's Department who tells us Suge can't get his hands on a "get out of jail free" card to attend events ... even if that event happens to be his own mother's funeral. As we reported, Maxine Chatman died Sunday. 

The reason's simple ... Suge's an inmate who falls under a category that makes him ineligible to attend funerals -- he's a homicide suspect. Suge's in jail awaiting trial for murder.

That being said, Suge could file a petition with the court, but we're told the likelihood of a court going against the Sheriff's Department is slim.

Erik Kramer's Wife Ex-QB Is On 'Manhunt' ... Looking to Kill Me

EXCLUSIVE

The wife of ex-NFL quarterback Erik Kramer told police her husband snapped and physically abused her on June 13 ... and now she's afraid he's a on a "manhunt" to end her life. 

Kramer -- who played in the NFL from '87 to '99 -- was arrested at his home in Agoura Hills, CA on June 13. His wife immediately got an emergency restraining order, but now she's looking to extend it. 

In her petition, Cortney Baird says she and Kramer had gotten into a verbal altercation the previous evening and she approached him the next morning to talk it out. 

But, Cortney says Kramer flipped out and began cussing her out, pushing her around the home and then started grabbing various household items to throw at her ... including ice packs and their knife block. He missed on all attempts. 

Kramer then allegedly started grabbing other items around the home -- glasses, candle holders, picture frames -- and started smashing them on the ground. 

Cortney says she called 911 ... and cops raced to the scene and arrested Kramer who admitted getting physical, according to the police report obtained by TMZ Sports

Kramer was booked at a nearby station, but released the next day -- and Cortney says she's in fear for her life and worried Erik could also come after her daughter. 

In fact, Cortney points to Erik's 2015 failed suicide attempt -- when he survived a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. 

Cortney says the incident proves Erik has access to guns and isn't afraid to pull the trigger. 

"I am terrified that he is out looking for me at this very moment and will kill me and my daughter."

Cortney's request for a restraining order was granted -- Erik must stay 100 yards away at all times and has been ordered to move out of the family home. 

As we previously reported, Cortney has also filed for divorce
