Donald Trump Inauguration Protesters Won't Go Hungry Behind Bars

1/20/2017 1:00 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0120-prisoner-dinner-in-jail-tmz-gettyProtests are raging on in Washington D.C. where, so far, more than 90 people have been arrested ... but when it comes to meals, they might wish they protested in a different city.

We got the menu for several jails in the major U.S. cities where protests are either underway or scheduled to begin later Friday. Here's what the jailbirds will get: 

Washington D.C.:
Lunch: Bologna and cheese sandwich
Dinner: Cod fish, sweet potatoes, mixed veggies, biscuits and fudge brownies

NYC:
Lunch: Ground turkey, fried rice, green beans, carrots and celery, whole wheat bread, fresh fruit and lemonade fruit drink
Dinner: Bake battered fish, tartar sauce, lyonnaise potatoes, mixed vegetables, whole wheat bread, margarine, apple fruit drink and hot tea

L.A.:
Lunch: Bologna sandwich and an apple
Dinner: Salisbury steak and steamed veggies

Obviously, all jail kitchens aren't created equal.

Rioting. It works up an appetite. And don't forget ... protesters can also get free legal advice once they get out.

MMA Star Mayhem Miller 'Golden Showers' Take Center Stage In Dom. Violence Case

1/20/2017 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Jason "Mayhem" Miller's domestic violence case just took a weird turn -- his lawyer brought up his penchant for "golden showers" and freaky sex acts in open court.

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).

Unclear how Miller's lawyer plans on using this information in the case ... but damn.

(Note: the woman in the video is NOT the accuser).

'A Dog's Purpose' Huge Fine and Jail Possible

"A Dog's Purpose" crew members are now under investigation by Manitoba's Chief Veterinary Office, and jail time is on the table if the agency finds any wrongdoing.

The CVO tells TMZ it received a formal complaint on Wednesday, and has begun looking into what went down on the set during filming in Winnipeg.

TMZ posted the video of Hercules, a German Shepherd, appearing terrified to get in churning water to shoot a scene for the movie. The trainer tried for about 40 seconds to put Hercules in the pool. The CVO says it wasn't involved with the filming, because a rep from the American Humane Association was on set. That rep, we've learned, has since been suspended.

The Office could levy a fine up to $10k and/or sentence offenders to up to 6 months in jail.

Producers for the film say Hercules was not harmed during filming.

Donald Trump Inauguration T-Shirt Slinging, Joint Passing Could Fly ... Cops Have Bigger Fish To Fry

1/19/2017 11:03 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0119-trump-inauguration-weed-t-shirts-no-cops-fun-art-GETTY-TMZ-03People looking to make a quick buck hawking Donald Trump t-shirts or even those smoking weed at Friday's inauguration can rest easy, because there's a good chance D.C. cops will look past them.

Law enforcement sources tell us they have so many concerns before, during and after the inauguration -- primarily security and crowd control -- they are not going to sweat the small stuff.

We're told cops in the nation's Capital generally do crack down on people who hawk merchandise on the street without a permit and they will also usually cite weed smokers.  

The stakes for smoking weed in public are pretty high ... worst case scenario 2 months in jail. 

So, smoke 'em if you got 'em.

Donald Trump Inauguration Cops Set Up Mobile Booking Stations To Handle Mass Arrests

1/19/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0118-trump-mobile-stations-police-fa-tmz-getty-01Cops working Donald Trump's inauguration are prepped to handle mass arrests and avoid chaos in the jails ... and their secret weapon is the mobile booking station.

Law enforcement sources tell us the city will be littered with mobile booking stations where officers can book, issue citations and release demonstrators they arrest.

As we reported, there are new laws in D.C. that protect peaceful protests, and we're told local cops have been schooled on allowing demonstrations and not moving in too quickly.

Here's the rub. If violence erupts, all bets are off. Crimes of assault, battery and worse will almost guarantee a ride to jail, so lockup facilities could easily become overloaded.

The city will be swarming with law enforcement from various jurisdictions who will focus on crowd control and security. The National Guard will be 5,000 strong and they'll be joined by 3,000 cops.

Donald Trump Alleged Wannabe Assassin has Strong 9/11, Hillary Ties

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.

Alanis Morissette Manager Pleads Guilty to Stealing $4.8 Mil

Breaking News

0118-alanis-morissette-tmz-02Turns out Alanis Morissette wasn't the only one with a hand in her pocket -- her former business manager admits to ripping her off for millions, and has now copped a plea with federal prosecutors.

Jonathan Schwartz pled guilty to 2 felonies connected to an embezzlement scheme that fleeced Alanis of $4.8 million. According to the feds ... Schwartz, who has also managed Beyonce and Mariah, admits to jacking the cash from the singer over 4 years. He says he also took about $1.7 mil from other clients.

However, he's not pleading to the embezzlement -- instead the feds got him on wire fraud and filing a false tax return ... for the money he stole. He had been facing up to 23 years in federal lockup, but is now hoping the judge will provide leniency.

TMZ broke the story -- Alanis sued Schwartz last year for the theft. According to court records, she reached a settlement with him in June 2016.

'Hamilton' Star & Creator Pisses Off NYPD Honcho by Toasting Obama's Controversial Prisoner Release

1/18/2017 6:52 AM PST
Exclusive Details

0118-miranda-rivera-getty-02Lin-Manuel Miranda's vowing to return to "Hamilton" in honor of President Obama commuting the sentence of Oscar Lopez Rivera -- who was convicted for conspiracy against the U.S. government -- and some cops are outraged.

Miranda said he'd be honored to play Alexander Hamilton if Rivera goes to see the play in Chicago after his release in May. Rivera has been serving a 70 year sentence since the '80s for involvement in the FALN -- a Puerto Rican liberation organization that conducted fatal bombings in NYC and an attack on NYPD headquarters.

The argument for Rivera's release has been that he was never convicted of killing anyone, and only for seditious conspiracy, but a high-ranking member of NYPD tells TMZ, "It's a slap in the face of every hard working NYPD officer that the President would commute the sentence of a terrorist, and for [Miranda] to honor a terrorist is appalling."

Miranda, who quit "Hamilton" last summer, is of Puerto Rican descent and tweeted Obama to thank him for shortening Rivera's sentence before leaving the White House.
