2/8/2016 9:49 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News


LeSean McCoy isn't the only NFL player under investigation for allegedly attacking off-duty cops in Philly -- investigators say the other 3 men are also pro football players. 

The Philadelphia PD issued a statement saying all of the suspects "are reported to be members of the National Football League."

Cops have not yet released the names of the suspects. 

The Philly PD says the fight was over "the ownership of a bottle of champagne" -- with the suspects allegedly punching, kicking and stomping the victims multiple times. 

The victims were hurt pretty badly -- cops say one man transported himself to the hospital where he was treated for a cut over his right eye, broken nose, broken ribs and a sprained thumb. 

Another alleged victim says he needed 8 stitches to close a gash on his left eye and may have a skull fracture.

Prius Super Bowl Ad Cops Call BS ... That Thing Will NEVER Outrun Us!

2/8/2016 8:57 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

That Prius Super Bowl commercial rubbed cops the wrong way -- not because it made high speed chases look like good, clean fun ... but because it's a big fat lie!

Several law enforcement sources tell us the Prius spot was hysterically unrealistic. One source said, "Loved it, funny as hell ... like a Prius is going to outrun anything."

Other reviews included:
- "overdone"
- "silly"
- "you can't outrun a helicopter"

They've got a point. The new Prius 4 tops out around 105 mph, while a police cruiser can do at least 120 mph -- and their 0-60 times are a laughable 10.5 seconds compared to 6 flat.

Now, a few sources were concerned about the ad's overall message, saying ... "I had to tell my kids running from cops is a bad thing." But the overall take on Prius' attempt to look worthy of a felony -- "goobery and dumb."

The cops who pulled over Jabar Gaffney last month say the ex-NFL wide receiver didn't just smell like weed -- he was covered in it -- and TMZ Sports has the footage from the arrest.  

We broke the story ... the former Texans and Patriots player was busted in Florida on January 22nd at 3 PM because he was swerving and his windows were tinted. 

The cop who pulled Gaffney over was pretty intense ... saying the scent of weed was super strong -- and when Gaffney got out of his truck, you can hear the cop say, "You got marijuana all over you!"

Eventually, Gaffney was charged with felony drug paraphernalia and weed possession.

2/4/2016 6:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0204-avery-manitowoc-badge-ap-02Someone got real pissed off watching "Making a Murderer" ... a bomb threat was called in to Manitowoc cops and the caller demanded justice for Steven Avery.

The caller claimed there were bombs planted all over the Manitowoc County Sheriff's Department and in its parking lot on Wednesday evening. Deputies cleared the building and searched for a couple of hours before giving the all clear. 

No explosives were found.

0204-manitowoc-scene-WLUK-TV-4Cops say the caller mentioned "getting justice for Steven."

A second threat came in later that night, but again ... no explosives.

'Bev Hills Nannies' Star Claims Valet Hocked Loogie ... Led to Hospital Visit

2/3/2016 10:51 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0202-ariane-bellamar-tmz-01"Beverly Hills Nannies" star Ari Bellamar claims she wound up in the hospital after a valet attendant went ballistic and spit into her family's car.

Ari says the nasty run-in went down outside Dan Tana's, the famous Italian restaurant in West Hollywood. After dropping their car off at Dan Tana's valet, Ari and her family decided to hit up a different restaurant right next door for takeout.

She says when they came back their car was blocked and the valet attendant was pissed they didn't eat at Dan Tana's. Ari claims he body checked her husband and then hocked a loogie into a napkin and threw it inside their car as they drove off.

Ari is 4 months pregnant and says the stress made her start spotting so much, she was admitted to a hospital. The baby is okay, but Ari's husband has filed a battery report with cops.

Dan Tana's says the valet is not its employee, but works for an outside company.

Breaking News


Ex-Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle has been arrested again -- after an attempt to crash at his ex-girlfriend's Texas home early this morning went terribly awry. 

Cops say Randle was driving through Irving County on his way to Kansas -- when he stopped at his ex-GF's home around 3 AM and asked if he could sleep there for a while. 

But officials say he was REJECTED from the home -- and the people inside called police. 

When cops arrived, they ran a check on Randle and found he had a warrant out for his arrest stemming from a speeding charge ... so, he was arrested and taken into custody. 

Bail was set at $359.  

It's been a rough couple of years for the 24-year-old -- who was arrested for jacking cologne and undies from a Dallas mall in 2014 and then popped for assaulting a cop at a casino back in November.
