Breaking News



12:15 PM PT -- Abby posted an apology to her family, friends and fans ... saying she takes full responsibility for her actions and she'll "do whatever it takes to ensure that my horrible mistake is never repeated."


Abby Wambach got busted for driving under the influence in downtown Portland late Saturday night.

The retired U.S. Women's soccer star was pulled over by Portland cops when she allegedly ran a red light. Officers say she failed field sobriety testing and also a breathalyzer.

Police have not said what her blood alcohol level was, but she appears extremely glassy eyed in her mug shot. Portland PD described her as "polite and cooperative" during the arrest.

Abby, who retired late last year after winning the World Cup, was booked for DUII (driving under influence of intoxicants), and released on her own recognizance.

Just a few days ago, we shot the Olympic hero in Palm Springs where she was partnered with Caitlyn Jenner in a golf tournament.

0329-Zero-Kazama-Silent-Library-MTV-01Zero Kazama, host of MTV's "Silent Library," is now a wanted man after dodging a court appearance related to a bizarre incident where cops say he terrified tourists with death threats. 

According to court records, obtained by TMZ, Kazama had a date with a judge on March 28 -- for DUI and misdemeanor assault charges -- but was a no-show, so the court issued an arrest warrant. 

We broke the story ... Kazama went to the Manitou Springs Cliff Dwellings in CO a couple months ago, and began yelling everyone was going to die. He split before cops showed up, but was apprehended later when he crashed his car and got busted for DUI.

0304_oj-simpson-house-demo_ojThe knife found on the grounds of O.J. Simpson's Rockingham estate has no connection to the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman.

The LAPD confirmed their testing of the folding buck knife revealed no evidence linking it to the double murder. As TMZ first reported ... microbes in the soil had degraded any possible DNA, so it was impossible to get any meaningful results.

Bottom line ... cops got no DNA match off the 5" blade, and the case remains open.

Busta Rhymes White House Visit to Change System Woo Hah! Woo Hah!

3/31/2016 10:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Busta Rhymes is hot as fish grease over long prison sentences handed down to non-violent criminals ... so he's become an activist, fighting to change "mandatory minimums."

Busta spoke to TMZ inside his NYC music studio and says after a close friend got 20 years for a marijuana charge ... he had to get involved and help change the justice system and the use of elevated punishments.

The hip-hop legend says he teamed up with FAMM (Families Against Mandatory Minimums) ... and even scored a meeting at the White House.

It's a pretty remarkable clip -- about as political as we've seen Busta. 

Ashanti's Stalker Gets Prison Time ... But Chance He Could Walk

3/31/2016 9:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0331-ashanti-hurd-instagram-getty-01Ashanti's stalker might be getting out of prison, even though he was just sentenced to up to 4 years behind bars.

Devar Hurd got 16 months to 4 years prison time, but the catch is that he's already been locked up for 32 months for violating a restraining order. He'll get credit for that time, but the Department of Corrections has to decide if he stays in prison. If they decide his sentence is longer than 32 months ... he'll stay in prison for the difference.

Whenever Hurd does get out ... he can't contact Ashanti, her sister or mother for the next 5 years under the terms of a new restraining order.

Hurd was found guilty earlier this month of felony 2nd degree stalking after sending several X-rated tweets to Ashanti and her sister and even texted an X-rated pic of himself to her mom.

He'd been arrested previously in 2009 for stalking Ashanti.

Brandon Davis Cops DUI Plea ... Avoids Jail Time Again

3/31/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

032916-brandon-davis-tmzHollywood heir Brandon Davis is mastering the art of the plea deal -- we've learned he just dodged jail in his DUI arrest. 

We're told Davis, aka Greasy Bear, pled no contest to a DUI charge for his single car wreck last October. As we reported, his blood alcohol level that night was almost twice the legal limit

The heir to the Marvin Davis fortune was facing up to 6 months in jail, but got off with 36 months probation, 10 days community labor and 6 months in an alcohol treatment program. 

He's previously pled guilty to felony coke possession and no contest to a battery charge in 2011. He skated with a drug diversion program. 

Of course, he'll have to keep his nose clean during his 3 years probation, which ain't always easy ... as his nemesis Lindsay Lohan knows.

Fun Fact: We're coming up on the 10th anniversary of "firecrotch." 


'Making a Murderer' New Prison But Still ... No WrestleMania For Brendan Dassey

3/31/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

033016-brendan-dassey-ap-02"Making a Murderer" star, and controversial convict, Brendan Dassey's lost all hope in his new prison -- he will not get to see his favorite show, WrestleMania ... TMZ has learned.

Dassey transferred to Columbia Criminal Institution in Wisconsin in January, and prison officials tell us there's a strict rule against violence, foul language and nudity for TV viewing. That means the WWE's main event is off the table, so avid wrestling fan Dassey is screwed.

If you watched 'Murderer,' you'll recall Dassey's main concern after getting arrested for homicide in March 2006 ... was that he'd miss WrestleMania 22 the next month. 

Dassey -- who's serving a life sentence -- ran into the same ban in his previous prison. He should get used to missing out, since he's still more than 30 years from a shot at parole.

0330-dj-white-gaga-instagram-tmz-01Lady Gaga's 30th bash didn't end well for her producer, DJ White Shadow, who had $15k worth of gear jacked outside the party ... according to cops. 

White Shadow -- who produced Gaga's "Born This Way" and "Artpop" albums -- had been on deck duty at the No Name Club event with a ton of A-listers in attendance.

According to the police report ... around 4 AM White Shadow and a pal were leaving the venue with all his gear when they got into it with a photog (not one of ours) who was hurling derogatory comments at them. 

Cops say White Shadow and his pal left his gear and approached the pap, but when the tiff ended they realized someone had swiped the equipment ... including computers, hard drives, a watch and headphones.

Total loss ... $15,810.

White Shadow reported the theft to cops. So far, no suspects.

3/29/2016 10:31 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


update_graphic_red_bar11:29 AM PT -- EAG Sports, which represents Jon, just issued a statement saying, "Jon and his team are taking this very seriously and we will let the legal process play out."

"We are confident he will be released once he has an opportunity to explain to the judge the facts in this case." update_grey_gray_barJon Jones was booked in New Mexico for violating his probation moments ago -- and posed for a brand new mug shot after turning himself in ... TMZ Sports has learned.

We're told a judge had issued a warrant for the UFC star's arrest for violating the terms of his probation after he was cited for drag racing in Albuquerque last week.

Jones was sentenced to probation last year after being convicted in a hit and run case in which the UFC star crashed into a pregnant woman's car and then ran from the scene on foot.  

One of the terms of Jones' probation was to not get into any trouble with the law -- and the judge felt the drag racing citation qualified as a violation. 

Jones turned himself in to the Albuquerque PD at 10 AM Tuesday morning. He's currently being held at the county jail.
