Joshua Murley  -- a Season 6 contestant on “The Voice” – was arrested at a Texas Walmart after allegedly stealing $57 worth of munchies.

Cops tell us Murley hit the self-checkout, bagged his groceries, then left the store without paying. His booty included chips, dips, drinks and bread.

He was booked on misdemeanor theft -- it is Walmart -- and spent the night in jail.

Murley was part of Team Adam, and later poached by Team Shakira on the sing-off show, but he never made it to the playoffs.

Only chair that’s gonna turn now is the judge's.

John Bowlen 911

'I Own the Broncos'

'I'm the Blood of the City'

6/5/2015 8:58 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

TMZ Sports has obtained the bizarre 911 call recording from the domestic dispute involving the son of Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen ... in which he claims to be "the blood of the city."

John Bowlen's girlfriend initially called 911 on Wednesday night ... but the call was cut short ... and the last thing the operator heard was the woman screaming. 

So, the operator called back ... only this time, John picked up ... and goes on a bizarre rant in which he claims to be the owner of the Denver Broncos ... says he's dealing with a "crazy girlfriend" ... and swears on his life that everything is fine. 

"As the blood of the city, I'm telling you nothing is wrong." 

He also dropped some names ... "I'm a man of the city. A friend of the mayor. And everybody knows exactly who I am. I'm going through a lot."

Bowlen continued ... "She is leaving right now, nothing is wrong. I love you guys. Thank you. Bye bye."

Obviously, the operator didn't buy Bowlen's story -- cops went to the scene and Bowlen was arrested on domestic violence charges

FYI -- Bowlen is employed by the Broncos as the Corporate Partnerships Coordinator ... and was the frontrunner to take over the team from his father, who has Alzheimer's.

0604-jenelle-evans-tmz-01Jenelle Evans and her estranged baby daddy are trying to work things out between them ... and step one was him not pursuing a domestic violence case against her.  

Evans got popped last month for allegedly attacking Nathan Griffith, but the case was dropped Thursday after Nathan told police he didn't want to press charges.  

A rep for Evans tells TMZ the pair are now on speaking terms and are working on their relationship ... for the sake of their child. 

We're told Evans wants to put the past behind her and focus on the kid and her nursing career.

Duggars Are Wrong

Molestation Case was NOT Sealed

6/4/2015 3:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are full of it when they say the Springdale, Arkansas Police Chief had an agenda in releasing the "sealed" molestation case ... so says the city's top prosecutor. 

Springdale City Attorney Ernest Cate tells TMZ, the case file was never sealed. The reason -- the police report wasn't filed until 2006, 4 years after the molestations began. When the police report was filed, Josh Duggar was 18 ... an adult suspect, and therefore there was no basis for sealing the case.

Cate says he got a Freedom of Information request from a media outlet, and since it was a non-sealed case he was required to release it under the Freedom of Information Act. The names of the minor victims in the police report narrative were redacted. 

This is interesting ... in the narrative, Josh's name was redacted because he was only 14 when the molestations first occurred. Cate says when it comes to sealing a case the relevant time is when the police report is filed, so they were dealing with an adult suspect. 

Jim Bob and Michelle claimed on Fox News Channel they were the real victims, because the Police Chief somehow had an agenda to get them. But Cate says it's just not true ... the city followed the law in releasing the file.

Justin Bieber

Pleads Guilty

in Ontario ATV Assault, Eh

Justin Bieber
 just copped a plea in a criminal assault case involving Selena Gomez, a paparazzo and an ATV.

Justin appeared in a Canadian court via Skype. The singer was in the office of his lawyer, Howard Weitzman, when he pled guilty to simple assault and careless driving.

The incident went down in Ontario last summer, when Justin crashed his ATV into the minivan of a photog, who was taking pics of Justin and then-GF Selena.

The judge warned the Biebs, "The lesson in all of this is to think before you act in the future."

The plea was a good deal for Justin. He has to pay a $750 fine and that's it. There's no jail, no probation. The whole thing goes away.

Bieber's lawyer, Brian Greenspan, tells TMZ he worked with prosecutors to hammer out the deal, which he described as fair. He was quick to point out that no one was injured in the incident and the pap involved in the incident later pled guilty to trespassing.

Denver Broncos Owner

Son Arrested for Domestic Violence

... Wearing Broncos Shirt

Exclusive Details

0604_John-Bowlen_MUG

The son of Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen was arrested for domestic violence in Colorado on Wednesday ... while wearing a Broncos shirt ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

29-year-old John Bowlen Jr. -- one of 7 Bowlen children -- is being held at the Arapahoe County jail outside of Denver on suspicion of 3rd degree assault and harassment.

According to the police report, the victim told police John was under the influence of whippets and alcohol. Whippets is slang for nitrous oxide. 

The woman -- who says she has been dating Bowlen for 10 months -- says the two were inside of John's apartment when John began acting strange and "shoved her against the wall."

The woman says she called 911, but John took the phone and hung up. 

When the operator called back, John reportedly answered and said, "This is the owner of the Denver Broncos. I am sorry. K. Nothing is wrong. This is John Bowlen."

The woman says she had been drinking alcohol earlier in the evening.

John was taken into custody for domestic violence harassment and property crimes. He's being held without bail.  

According to multiple reports, John has an MBA in sports and entertainment from the University of Denver and is in executive training with the Broncos. He is one of the frontrunners to take over the team when his father (who is suffering from Alzheimer's) steps down. 

Pat Bowlen isn't the only Broncos executive with a son who's been accused of domestic violence -- last year the son of Broncos General Manager John Elway, John Elway III, was arrested and convicted of attacking his GF during a heated argument in Arizona. 

The Denver Broncos have released a statement saying, "We are disappointed to learn of the matter involving John Bowlen ... . While this is a personal issue, he is accountable to all club and league conduct policies. As such, John will be placed on an indefinite leave of absence from the organization."

Suge Knight, Dr. Dre, Ice Cube

Sued for Wrongful Death

6/3/2015 4:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0603-suge-knight-dr-dre-ice-cube-tmz-01Suge Knight is being sued for running over Terry Carter in a burger parking lot, and Dr. Dre and Ice Cube have also been named as defendants.

Carter's wife and kids have filed the lawsuit -- obtained by TMZ -- claiming Dr. Dre and Ice Cube -- both producers of "Straight Outta Compton" -- hired known gang members to provide security for location shoots in gang-infested neighborhoods.

The suit claims some of the gang members incited the fight and threatened Suge, leading to his decision to roar back through the parking lot in a panic, running over and killing Carter.

The Carter family is also suing Tam's Burgers, claiming violent crimes regularly go down in that parking lot so the burger joint should have had security.

The suit seeks unspecified damages.

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar

Josh Made 'Bad Choices'

6/3/2015 2:02 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are finally copping to being failures as parents -- but their description of Josh Duggar’s molestation incidents might seriously piss you off.

Josh's parents sat down with Megyn Kelly of FOX News to speak out for the first time since the molestation story broke -- and on the heels of a newly released police report that shows Jim Bob and Michelle horribly dragged their feet on reporting Josh's crimes.

FOX released this brief clip of the interview (which airs Wednesday night) ... in which they rather nonchalantly describe Josh's "choices."  

TLC has yet to make a final decision on the fate of "19 Kids and Counting" -- and it was not involved in setting up the Duggar's FOX interview. We're told execs will be watching closely when it airs.

11:25 AM PST -- TMZ has learned Mila's stalker has been taken into custody in Santa Monica, CA after police found him in an alley. 

update_grey_gray_bar

Be on the lookout for this man ... a convicted stalker who has terrorized Mila Kunis and is on the loose. 

Stuart Lynn Dunn has been on the loose since escaping Saturday from a psychiatric facility near L.A. He's been twice convicted of stalking Kunis ... showing up at all hours at places she frequented.

Cops released these somewhat scary "Wanted" pics ... one of his mugshot and the other photo taken recently.

Cops say Dunn was last seen wearing a black zip-up jacket, light blue jeans and grey low-top converse.

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar

Covered Up Molestation

6/3/2015 6:44 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0521-the-duggar-family-tlc-3Josh Duggar's parents knew he repeatedly molested his five-year-old sister but failed to notify authorities for at least 16 months ... this according to a just-released police report.

According to the report, obtained by In Touch, Josh confessed to Jim Bob on 3 separate occasions that he molested at least one sister. Here's the worst part ... after the first confession, Jim Bob did nothing and the molestations continued. And after the second confession, Jim Bob again did nothing to notify authorities or even get him help and again the molestations continued. 

After the third confession, Josh's parents enrolled him in a treatment program, but they did not notify authorities until at least 4 months after the last confession.  And get this ... the delay was at least 16 months after Josh's first confession.

Put another way, had Jim Bob and Michelle notified authorities immediately after Josh's first confession, they might have taken action that would have prevented the subsequent molestations.

It's possible the Duggar parents could have been prosecuted for permitting abuse of a minor, but the statute of limitations has long since passed. 

TLC still hasn't announced the fate of "19 Kids and Counting," but now that there's evidence the parents may have covered up the crime, it's going to be hard for TLC to keep the show afloat.
