Corinne Olympios My Lawyer's Still Investigating After Warner Bros. Clears DeMario

6/20/2017 1:53 PM PDT

Corinne Olympios isn't ready to accept Warner Bros.' word about what went down between her and DeMario Jackson on the "Bachelor in Paradise" set, and she's continuing her own investigation.

Corinne's high-powered attorney, Marty Singer, says, "It comes as no surprise that Warner Bros., as a result of its own internal investigation, would state that no wrong doing had occurred. Our own investigation will continue based on multiple new witnesses coming forward revealing what they saw and heard.”

Singer also points out ... it was one of the show's own producers who thought something was improper on set -- “It needs to be made crystal clear that production of 'Bachelor in Paradise' was shut down because of multiple complaints received from 'BIP' producers and crew members on the set. It was not shut down due to any complaint filed by Corinne against anyone."

Corinne has yet to say IF she's suing, and if so ... who she'd sue. She was tight-lipped in Hollywood after the Warner Bros. announcement.

EXCLUSIVE

"Wife Swap" double murder suspect Jacob Stockdale used a shotgun to kill his mother and brother, both of whom were shot in the head ... according to cops.

Law enforcement sources tell us Jacob fired twice at his mom, Kathryn with the 20-gauge shotgun and left her body in an upstairs bathroom in their Ohio home.

Jacob allegedly shot his younger brother, James, once in the head near the front door ... then unloaded on himself about 10 feet from James' body. Jacob shot himself in the face with the shotgun ... and miraculously survived.

Sources close to the case tell us Jacob was trying to communicate with officers when they arrived, but they couldn't understand him. He was last listed in critical condition after being choppered to a hospital.

One last thing ... we're told Jacob's father was not home at the time of the shooting, and was stopped less than a mile from the home on his way back from work when cops broke the news.

Miles Teller Busted for Public Drunkenness Uncooperative with Cops

6/19/2017 9:35 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

2:08 PM PT -- Miles just tweeted, "Went down to SD to see my buddy before he deployed. I wasn't arrested I was detained bc there was no evidence to charge me with a crime." 

For the record, the San Diego PD tells TMZ Miles was arrested and booked for misdemeanor public intoxication. They also took a mug shot. Miles Teller was arrested early Sunday morning after he was literally falling down drunk and refusing to cooperate with cops ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

Teller was partying with a group of guys in San Diego when an officer noticed the actor was having trouble standing on the sidewalk. We're told the cop walked up to Miles and started questioning him, but he quickly became uncooperative. 

Our sources say that's when Teller lost his balance and almost fell into a traffic lane. The cop cuffed him, and Miles had trouble standing in one spot.

Now the turning point. San Diego offers a detox program where cops will take someone who is drunk to a center run by volunteers. The center has cots where someone can stay for 4 hours and sleep it off. The cop offered to take Miles there but we're told he refused.

At that point Miles could have been arrested, but cops still took him to the detox center ... hoping he'd cooperate. That didn't happen. We're told he refused to follow directions so the staff rejected him.

At that point, Miles was arrested for being drunk in public ... a misdemeanor. He was in jail for around 4 hours and he was released without bail.

Miles' rep had no comment.

Bill Cosby's sexual assault trial has just ended ... in a mistrial, but even before prosecutors heard the breakdown among jurors they declared they will re-try the comedian.

Jurors were unable to reach a verdict on any of the 3 sexual assault counts.

The jury deliberated for more than 5 days and on Friday told the judge they were deadlocked after 53 hours of deliberations. The judge pressured the jury to reach a decision by not allowing them to call it quits until 9:30 PM.

Cosby was stoic as the judge declared a mistrial ... showing no emotion whatsoever.

A member of Cosby's P.R. team read a statement from his wife Camille, who blasted prosecutors, the judge and media for what she says is unethical and deceitful conduct.

Prosecutors vow to retry Cosby within 4 months.

The jury deliberated for more than 52 hours, which was longer than the trial itself. They told the judge Saturday they were "hopelessly deadlocked."

6/16/2017 4:21 PM PDT

Former 'Bachelor' and current defendant Chris Soules wants to block the jury in his felony hit-and-run trial from hearing anyone refer to the deceased as a "victim."

TMZ broke the story ... Chris plowed into a tractor driven by a man named Kenneth Moser who died as a result of his injuries. Chris left the scene before cops arrived and he's been charged with leaving the scene of an accident that resulted in death.

EXCLUSIVE

Rep. Pete Aguilar says the Congressional Baseball Game at Nationals Park will be the safest place to be in D.C. Thursday night ... and believes your elected officials are about to put on a very unique show. 

We spoke to the California congressman, who's playing for the Dems in the charity game -- and he felt extremely confident in the ramped up security after Wednesday's shooting, which left fellow Rep. Steve Scalise critically injured.

Aside from raising a record amount of money -- more than $1 mil in a day -- he says this year's game will show, more than ever, that Democrats and Republicans really do get along. In fact, Aguilar says the parties get along way more than you'd think.

Of course, we rarely see that when it counts.

Fun fact: Aguilar was wearing an LSU ball cap, as all the players will to honor Scalise's alma mater.
