EXCLUSIVE

0725-Glen-Rice-Jr-mugshotMore trouble for ex-NBA player Glen Rice Jr. -- the 25-year-old was arrested for robbery Monday morning in Georgia ... less than a year after he was shot in a bizarre gunfight at T.I.'s restaurant. 

Here's what we know ... Rice was booked at 6:37 AM this morning for felony robbery, aggravated battery and possession of marijuana. He has since been released from custody. 

The details surrounding the incident are unclear -- we're working on it. 

By the way, Rice just completed a pre-trial intervention program stemming from the 2015 shooting incident. 

As we previously reported, Rice was arrested -- after he was shot in the leg -- when cops say he was carrying 240 grams of weed and a bunch of cash. He was charged with weed and gun possession. 

Unclear if this new arrest will affect that case.

Suge Knight Prosecutors Air Dirty Laundry To Protect Witnesses

EXCLUSIVE

0722-suge-knight-GETTY-01

update_graphic_red_bar

10:25 PM PT -- The judge agreed with prosecutors and just ruled Suge's defense team cannot receive additional info about some of the potential witnesses but they did get several names. 

update_grey_gray_bar

Suge Knight is a very dangerous man whose criminal record stretches almost 30 years ... at least that's the point prosecutors are trying to make in order to protect witnesses from his wrath.

Suge's defense team has asked prosecutors in the murder case for their witness list -- but prosecutors say they're hesitant to release that info given Suge's lengthy criminal past. 

In legal docs, obtained by TMZ, prosecutors list numerous run-ins Suge has had with the law over the years -- including an attempted murder charge in '87, assault with a firearm in '95 and ordering a bodyguard to punch a woman. Their list went on and on.

And get this ... prosecutors say Suge's so intimidating, when new rappers come to L.A. or Vegas, they're required to pay a monetary "tax" to stay safe.

The judge will decide if prosecutors have to release the witness names. A hearing is scheduled for Friday.

Playboy Playmate Dani Mathers Hires MJ Lawyer For Looming Criminal Prosecution

7/22/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0720-dani-mathers-tom-mesereau-instagram-tmzDani Mathers -- the Playboy Playmate who took a picture of a naked woman in an L.A. gym -- has hired no less than the famous lawyer who got Michael Jackson acquitted ... and she has reason for worry.

We've learned Mathers hired Tom Mesereau, who not only got MJ off ... he won a murder acquittal for Robert Blake.

TMZ broke the story, the LAPD launched a criminal investigation after the gym where the photo was taken filed a police report. Mathers not only snapped the pic in the locker area, she shamed the woman by writing a snarky caption and posting it on social media.

Our LAPD sources say they are on the hunt for the victim and are working closely with LA Fitness execs, combing over surveillance video and checking member swipes during the time in question to ID the victim. And, we're told, they're close.

Our sources say the LAPD would like to present a criminal case to the L.A. City Attorney but need the cooperation of the victim.

Mathers has been banned from the health club, and good luck finding another one.

Hayden Panettiere My Dog Sitter is a Dirty Dog

EXCLUSIVE

0721-hayden-panettiere-dogs-twitter-tmz-01Hayden Panettiere claims the woman to whom she paid a queen's ransom for dog sitting services not only grossly overbilled her ... she gave her dogs away.

The dog fight began when Tia Brooks filed a lawsuit against Hayden for more than $8,500 for unpaid services.  

Hayden fired back with a letter from legal pit bull Marty Singer, who accused Tia of giving the 2 dogs away and then having the nerve to continue charging for her services.

Turns out Hayden rescued the 2 rescue pooches ... Zander, a Rottie/Lab mix, and Xena, a Lab/Pit Bull mix. The arrangement was Hayden would pay Tia $30 a day until Hayden could find a permanent home for the dogs.

Singer claims Tia put an ad on Craigslist last month, found a home but continued billing. Tia disputes it and says her bills were all legit.

Get this ... according to Singer's letter, Tia's been caring for the dogs for 6 years, charging a grand total of $119,335.88!!! As for how the bill got so high, Singer claims, in addition to the daily fee, Tia tacked on all sorts of extras, including dog bones, bug spray, tick control, dog beds and other stuff.

Tia tells us a big chunk of the money was for vet bills after one of the dogs got really sick.

It's expensive to be a dog in L.A.

LSU Football Violence Won't Keep Us Outta Baton Rouge ... Says Prized Recruit's Mom

EXCLUSIVE

0719-Austin-Deculus-twitterViolence and civil unrest in Baton Rouge won't cost LSU one of its prized recruits ... 'cause the kid's mom says they're still headed to the bayou ... despite the recent bloodshed. 

TMZ Sports spoke with Cheryl Deculus ... whose son Austin is the 4th ranked OT in the 2017 class, and asked her if his plans to go to LSU have changed due to the recent issues in Baton Rouge.

There are some who believe the situation in Baton Rouge is only getting worse ... after the Alton Sterling killing, the violent clashes at protests and the ambush murder of 3 cops. 

Cheryl told us while she's aware of everything going on ... she can't see anything swaying her son's decision to wear purple & gold ... or her decision to support him 100%.

"We knew when Austin started playing football at a young age that he wanted to be a Tiger ... we all bleed Purple and Gold and he’s still just as excited to join the LSU family."

As far as his safety ... Cheryl says she's relying on the staff and coaches at LSU to look out for her son ... but knows that danger lurks everywhere.

"These things can happen literally anywhere. We live close to Dallas, and you see what happened there. It’s a similar situation. It’s not like he can go somewhere that doesn’t have some sort of risk. This isn’t just happening in Baton Rouge.”
