Tulsa Officer Betty Shelby turned herself in overnight and was booked for first degree manslaughter in the killing of Terence Crutcher.

In the criminal complaint, the Tulsa D.A. says Shelby's "fear resulted in her unreasonable actions" which led to her shooting Crutcher.

Her lawyer says she fired because Crutcher was not following orders and, she believes, was reaching into his vehicle's window.

EXCLUSIVE

0922-chris-brown-royalty-nia-guzman-TMZ-INSTAGRAM-01Chris Brown's baby mama is fed up with all the drama in his life, so much so ... she dimed him out to DCFS.

Sources close to Nia Guzman tell TMZ ... she filed the complaint with DCFS some time after Chris was arrested for allegedly pulling a gun on Baylee Curran -- and that's exactly why child services went to Chris' house Thursday.

We're told Nia's worried about 2-year-old Royalty's safety -- although she was NOT in the house during the alleged gun incident. Our sources say Nia thinks he's a good dad on his own, but he continues to hang with a bad crowd.

Since Chris' arrest, all of his visits with Royalty must be supervised by his mother ... at least until the case is settled. 

We're told Nia isn't fighting to reduce Chris' custody at this point, but she agrees monitored visits are best for now.

EXCLUSIVE

0921-jonbenet-ramsey-house-splash-getty-01The owners of the Boulder house where JonBenet Ramsey was killed told documentary producers to take a hike when they literally tried to return to the scene of the crime.

Carol Schuller Milner and her husband currently live in the home, and she tells TMZ ... a production company contacted them months ago asking to lease their house. She says they immediately turned them down ... saying they had NO interest in dredging up horrific memories.

If you saw CBS' special, "The Case of: JonBenet Ramsey" ... you noticed producers had to build replica rooms, because they had zero access to the real deal. 

Even if the Milners had played ball ... Carol says they made major renovations 10 years ago, which included the basement. She says it wasn't because they were creeped out -- they'd already been there for 2 years -- it was just time for a makeover.

Carol says they didn't watch the documentary, and they've always separated the JonBenet tragedy from their home.

Exclusive Details

0921-adrien-broner-tmzBoxing superstar Adrien Broner will not be prosecuted for allegedly pulling a gun on a man and violently robbing him earlier this year ... TMZ Sports has confirmed. 

We broke the story ... Broner was charged with felonious assault and aggravated robbery after allegedly getting into a fight over a bet at a Cincinnati bowling alley back in January. 

A jury trial was scheduled to begin Wednesday, but according to a Hamilton County court clerk, the prosecutor's witness was a no-show ... so the judge dropped the charges.

Broner was present in court with his lawyer.

It seems like AB is completely off the hook in this case -- the alleged victim dropped his civil suit against him a few months ago.

A rep for the boxer tells us, "We are happy that the charges were dropped. It was a major setback, but we're glad we can move on from this and focus on getting AB back in the ring."

Emma Watson Take Down Semi-Nude Pics Or Else!

9/20/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0919-emma-watson-gettyEmma Watson got justice by siccing her legal team on a site that posted racy pics of her in a see-through top without a bra.

Emma's lawyers sent a cease and desist letter to the website, Celeb Jihad -- which somehow acquired private photos of Emma in a sheer top. The outfit exposed her breasts and nipples.

Her legal team put it in pretty simple terms -- Emma owns the pics and the copyright on them, so Celeb Jihad was breaking the law by posting them. According to the letter, the photos were taken by Emma's stylist, who then gave Emma all rights.

Message received loud and clear -- shortly after the site got the letter, Emma's pics were removed.
