Lil Pump Arrested for Shooting Gun While Home Alone

2/15/2018 9:09 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Lil Pump was arrested Wednesday night at his home after he fired a gun, but the reason he discharged the weapon is in dispute ... TMZ has learned.

According to law enforcement, Pump's manager reported 3 men were jimmying the rapper's front door, trying to get into his San Fernando Valley home around 4 PM, and the suspects fired a gun once through the door. The manager was not at the house, but was relaying info to cops after speaking to Pump.

When police responded, they found a bullet hole in the front door. However, there were no suspects on the scene. Cops say the 17-year-old rapper had been smoking marijuana, and after talking to him they found holes in the intruder story. 

Cops say the trajectory of the bullet hole shows it came from inside the home. Police returned a few hours later with a search warrant ... and found a handgun in the bushes below the balcony of Pump's apartment. The weapon was unloaded, but cops found ammo for the gun in the apartment. Cops felt Pump had fired the gun into the door -- not an intruder -- and arrested him for discharging a weapon in an inhabited place.

There's more potential trouble for Pump's family -- police found marijuana in the apartment, and his mother was not home. We're told she's under investigation for endangering a minor and having an unsecured gun at home.

Pump is currently being held in juvenile detention.

Pump's camp insists there were indeed 3 men trying to get into the home, and he only fired out of fear they were about to gain entry to the apartment. They also say Pump believes he hit one of the suspects. We're told there are surveillance cameras that should show the alleged intruders, and Pump's team will be reviewing it ASAP.

President Trump Vows to Make Schools Safer ... NO Mention of Guns

2/15/2018 8:48 AM PST
Breaking News

President Trump addressed the mass school shooting in Parkland, Florida, and vowed to make America's schools safer by tackling mental health issues.

Conspicuously, he did NOT mention gun control issues during his speech Thursday morning. The President called the shooting an act of hatred and evil. He promised the nation's young people and parents he would meet with officials to make school safety a top priority.

Trump had tweeted early this morning, "So many signs that the Florida shooter [Nikolas Cruz] was mentally disturbed" -- and he stuck to that Thursday, saying he was committed to improving mental health programs.

Worth nothing ... almost exactly a year ago, Trump signed a bill revoking gun checks for people with mental illness.

Trump's refusal to discuss gun control or gun safety reforms was glaring. Shortly after his speech, former President Obama tweeted about the need for "common-sense gun safety laws." 

As we reported ... Cruz was taken to jail early this morning wearing a hospital gown. Cops say Cruz used an AR-15 assault rifle to carry out the murders.

2/15/2018 6:21 AM PST

The man who has been arrested for shooting and killing 17 people at his old Florida high school was walked right into jail early Thursday morning wearing a hospital gown.

19-year-old Nikolas Cruz was marched into the Broward County jail wearing what appears to be hospital issued garb. He has been accused of killing or injuring scores of students and staff in a horrific mass shooting at his former high school in Parkland, FL.

Former classmates told news outlets he'd shown off some of his guns before getting expelled from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Police also say his social media searches were disturbing.

At least 17 people were killed Wednesday, and dozens more injured. He's been charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder.

Exclusive Details

'Survivor' winner Jenna Morasca allegedly was so whacked out on drugs she had to be revived with Narcan and, when she regained consciousness, she bit a cop.

Morasca, who won a million bucks on "Survivor: The Amazon" in 2003, was observed unconscious in her SUV in Washington, Pennsylvania in an intersection with the ignition on ... this according to the police report obtained by TMZ.

Cops were called, and they observed a passenger in the car trying to hide several syringes in a large Ziploc bag in her purse. Cops quickly determined Morasca was under the influence, administered Narcan, and placed her on a stretcher and into an ambulance.

According to the police report, Morasca, who also appeared on "Survivor: All-Stars" and "The Amazing Race," tried to bite paramedics on the way to the hospital. An officer entered the ambulance trying to subdue her, and cops say Morasca bit her on the forearm.

She was arrested for DUI and possession of narcotics paraphernalia and will be charged with assaulting a police officer for the incident, which occurred at the end of January.

'90 Day Fiancé' Star Busted for Weed TWO HUNDRED & NINETY-THREE POUNDS of Weed!!!

2/15/2018 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Keeping a self-proclaimed gold digger happy knows no bounds ... just ask this guy from the show "90 Day Fiancé" who got busted for allegedly trying to sell 300 pounds of weed. 

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Jorge Nava -- who met and married Russian beauty Anfisa Arkhipchenko on the TLC show last season -- was arrested last week in Arizona on multiple felony counts ... including possession of marijuana for sale and transportation of marijuana for sale.

We're told Jorge was pulled over by cops in Mojave County for a traffic violation. During the stop, cops conducted a search and made the colossal discovery. It's unclear where in the car Jorge had stored the weed or if it was in plain view.

He spent 2 days in jail before posting $25k bail. If convicted, Jorge faces up to 12 1/2 years in prison.

It's interesting ... Jorge's wife was pretty explicit on the show ... saying she wanted a $10k monthly allowance, expensive shoes, bags and even a car. He asked her what would happen if he, say, ever got hurt and couldn't work. She said she'd leave his ass.

Any takers?

2/15/2018 12:10 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Jeremy Sylvers -- who played Tyler in the third Chucky movie -- is facing serious jail time for allegedly stealing his mom's ride ... but it could have been a lot worse.

The now 37-year-old "Child's Play 3" star is facing 6 misdemeanor charges ... including assault with a deadly weapon other than a firearm (a phone), attempting to prevent someone from reporting a crime and driving and taking a vehicle without consent of the owner.

We broke the story ... Sylvers allegedly knocked down his mom last weekend, and took the keys to her 2002 Honda CRV. He got arrested the next day when cops went to his home to investigate.

The only bright side -- he was NOT charged with felony grand theft auto. He was originally booked for it when he was arrested.

Sylvers is looking at 3.5 years behind bars if convicted on all 6 counts.

2/14/2018 3:25 PM PST
Breaking News

Ex-MLB star Esteban Loaiza is fighting the charges in his cocaine smuggling case -- pleading not guilty to possessing more than 40 POUNDS of blow. 

The 46-year-old former All-Star pitcher appeared in court in his jailhouse jumpsuit -- where his lawyer told the judge he denies all of the allegations against him. 

As we previously reported, cops say Loaiza had a "sophisticated" drug smuggling compartment in his vehicle -- and when they searched his home, they found the motherload. Officials say Loaiza kept the drugs in a home just steps away from a preschool. 

Prosecutors say Loaiza had come back from a trip to Mexico on the same day he was arrested

He's facing multiple felony criminal charges including possession of cocaine for sale. 

The judge set Loaiza's bail at $250,000 after prosecutors argued that he's a flight risk. The judge ordered him not to leave San Diego without permission from the court. 

If convicted on all counts, Loaiza faces more than 20 years in prison. 

Meek Mill Cop Who Busted Me Is Dirty ... Let Me Out of Prison

2/14/2018 12:57 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Meek Mill wants out of prison immediately because the Philly police officer who busted him has a history of making dirty arrests ... according to new docs filed in his case.

Meek says officer Reginald Graham is the cop who arrested him in 2007 for drug possession. As we've reported, the rapper's been on probation ever since then, and he's currently in prison for violating that probation.

But according to docs, obtained by TMZ, Graham's testimony against Meek should be thrown out ... because another officer, Gerold Gibson, says Graham lied when he said Meek pointed a gun at him. Gibson says Meek merely took a gun out of his waistband to discard it, according to the docs. He also says Graham lied about Meek resisting arrest.

Meek's legal team is raising the issue due to a recent Philadelphia Inquirer report about a list of Philly cops with a history of lying, abuse and racial bias. The report claims Graham frequently stole money during arrests and beat up suspects.

In the docs, Meek says Graham admitted to a fellow officer he'd roughed up Meek during his arrest.

Meek wants his conviction thrown out due to Graham's track record -- which would set up an argument for him not being on probation ... and deserving a release from prison.

'L&HH' Star Tommie Lee Accused of Mall Smackdown ... Cops Investigating

EXCLUSIVE

"Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star Tommie Lee allegedly punched an employee in a super fancy jewelry store, and cops are now looking into the matter ... TMZ has learned.

According to the police report ... Tommie and an unknown man visited the Henri Bendel store in Atlanta's Lenox Square mall on February 1. An employee named Daniella was helping Tommie when a nasty argument started. Police say store surveillance cams captured Tommie yelling at Daniella, and then coming around the display case to "slap and punch her repeatedly."

Sources at the store tell us ... Tommie became increasingly rude while shopping, and Daniella decided to confront her about her attitude. We're told that's what set off Tommie. The store manager eventually broke up the altercation before Tommie and her companion bolted.

According to cops ... the store manager claimed Lee and her guy friend frequent the store, and have tried to steal items in the past.

The employee told cops she suffered bruising on the left side of her face and eye. She wants to press charges, and we're told she's lawyered up and might sue Tommie as well.

We reached out to reps for Tommie ... no word back yet.

Luann de Lesseps Rejects Plea Deal In Felony Drunken Arrest

2/14/2018 7:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Luann de Lesseps ain't afraid of no felony charges, apparently ... because she's rejecting a plea deal offer from prosecutors.

The 'Real Housewives of NY' star's attorney was in court Wednesday morning for a hearing on her drunk and disorderly arrest in Palm Beach on Christmas Eve. Prosecutors offered her a deal during the hearing ... and her side turned it down.

Prosecutors didn't lay out details of their offer.

Rejecting the deal is a pretty bold move on Luann's part. She's been charged with a felony count of resisting an officer with violence for the incident -- not to mention 2 misdemeanors ... trespassing and disorderly intoxication.

She could get up to 5 years in prison for the felony alone, so ... someone's feeling lucky.

'Atomic Blonde' Producer Cops Want David Guillod's DNA In Connection with Rape Allegations

2/13/2018 11:53 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Feb 14. 3:20 AM PT --  Guillod's rep tells TMZ, "David Guillod vehemently denies these allegations and is fully cooperating with the investigation as he did in 2012. He looks forward to clearing his name and the truth coming out."

The rep goes on, "In 2012, the LAPD investigated this claim and closed their investigation after witnesses contradicted Ms. Barth's statements and a saliva DNA sample collected came back as a positive match to Danny Cusumano, Ms. Barth's boyfriend, at the time, which she was having an affair with while she was married. Ms. Barth is now married to Mr. Cusumano and the truth is just starting to become clear."

8:19 PM PT -- The warrant says just after the alleged incident a DNA sample was taken that revealed the DNA on Jessica's hickeys was that of her boyfriend and not Guillod or her husband.

Hollywood producer David Guillod -- who's been accused of sexual assault by at least 4 women, including actress Jessica Barth -- is now under the microscope of investigators ... TMZ has learned.

According to legal docs ... a warrant's been issued to collect the DNA of the "Atomic Blonde" producer in connection with claims made by Barth that Guillod drugged and raped her in 2012.

In the docs, the LAPD detective handling the case says Barth claims she went to dinner with Guillod and a friend, drank a lot of wine, began feeling drowsy and can't recall anything after that. She says the next thing she recalled was coming to in her car with Guillod standing outside the vehicle and yelling at her.

She went to the hospital for a rape kit and the exam revealed a bruise on her left thigh, a bruise on her forehead and potential saliva on her breast and neck.

She says she had hickeys on her neck and asked Guillod if they had sex and he said no, but said they did have a makeout session.

The docs make it clear ... the LAPD has re-opened the investigation. The initial allegations were investigated but the case was closed in 2014. Cops say it was re-opened after "new allegations" surfaced. Cops also say they never collected a DNA sample from Guillod, so they are looking to do that now.

Guillod stepped down as co-CEO of Primary Wave Entertainment in November after Barth went public with accusations. Shortly after, 3 more women came forward with similar stories of being drugged and raped.

Guillod's reportedly also under investigation by the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office for allegedly raping a former employee in 2014.

Jared Fogle I Got A Raw Deal ... Nassar Got Leniency!

2/13/2018 11:06 AM PST
Breaking News

Jared Fogle might have his most ridiculous legal argument yet for a judge to undo his plea deal -- and Larry Nassar is his exhibit A. 

Fogle filed docs seeking to withdraw his guilty plea, and focuses on one of his many charges ... traveling for the purpose of engaging in illicit sex. He points out Dr. Nassar did NOT get slapped with this charge, and Fogle clearly thinks he should have been.

Yes, it's true ... Nassar was traveling with Team USA Gymnastics when he committed some of his crimes. Fogle, who filed the docs himself, thinks there was some bias against him because he did get that charge. He thinks he and Nassar should have gotten equal treatment under the law.

Here's why Fogle's not a great lawyer. Just one of Nassar's several sentences was for 175 years -- whereas Fogle's doing 15. He's asking the court to let him withdraw his guilty plea, presumably to get a do-over in his case.

Careful what ya wish for, jackass.

Larry Nassar Got Private Jet Flight ... To Tucson Prison

2/13/2018 8:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

File Under: Snake On a Plane

Scumbag ex-Team USA doctor Larry Nassar got the private jet treatment Friday to fly from Michigan to Tucson to begin his federal prison stint ... and TMZ Sports has the photos. 

Nassar boarded the plane at Detroit Metro Wayne County Airport in freezing Michigan temperatures -- the fact he didn't get a jacket makes us smile.

Records show the flight lasted 4 hours and 36 minutes. Nassar appears to be shackled and surrounded by law enforcement officials ... so we're guessing it wasn't exactly a Paris Hilton style private jet flight.

We asked the Federal Bureau of Prisons if it's typical for a high-profile prisoner to fly private but only got this response: "Due to security reasons, we do not share information on methods of prisoner transportation."

The good news ... Nassar has begun his 60-year sentence for child pornography crimes in a high-security federal prison in Tucson -- with roughly 1,500 other inmates. 

His release date is scheduled for March 23, 2069 -- but he'll probably be dead by then.
