Hannibal Buress Asked Cop to Call Him an Uber ... Before Arrest

12/10/2017 11:09 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Hannibal Buress seemed like he was trying to do the right thing before getting busted for disorderly intoxication ... 'cause he asked a cop to order him a ride home.

TMZ has obtained Hannibal's arrest affidavit from his Saturday night bust in Miami, in which the arresting officer describes what allegedly happened before he detained the comedian.

The officer says Hannibal approached him with blood shot eyes and a strong odor of alcohol coming from his breath, and then asked the cop to call him an Uber. The officer says he refused, which caused Hannibal to become angry and belligerent. 

The cop goes on to say Hannibal then went inside a bar, which the cop says he asked Hannibal to leave since he was too drunk. The two then made it outside, where the officer says Hannibal continued to hurl profanities at him and caused a crowd to form.

The cop says he asked him to leave 5 times before cuffing him.

As we reported ... Hannibal was released around 6 AM Sunday on a $500 bond. His mug shot was pretty epic, too.

Good luck. 

Chris Bosh's House Drug Trafficking Fortress ... Cops Say

12/9/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The Texas home owned by NBA star Chris Bosh had all of the hallmarks of a traditional drug trafficking den ... from iron gates to security cameras -- this according to the cops who raided the joint. 

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Bosh's mother, Freida, is listed as a suspect in an alleged crack cocaine and heroin trafficking operation based out of the home Chris owns in DeSoto, Texas. 

Cops conducted an covert sting operation to obtain evidence -- which included sending an undercover officer to the home on Tuesday to snatch and grab trash bags that had been left outside of the home. 

Officials say investigators sifted through the trash and found tons of evidence -- including baggies with cocaine residue, weed paraphernalia, burned joints and mail with Freida's name on it. 

As for the drug trafficking den -- cops say the home was guarded by a large iron fence and outfitted with security cameras ... "a common tactic for drug traffickers" for obvious reasons. 

Cops say one of the suspects has a rap sheet that includes violent crime -- including an incident where he was arrested for allegedly shooting a guy in the face during a drug deal. 

One law enforcement source tells TMZ Sports ... Chris is not suspected of any wrongdoing and his only real connection is the fact he owns the property. 

So, how the hell did Bosh's mother get mixed up in such a dangerous situation? Unclear at this point. 

We're told no arrests have been made at this point -- but they could be coming soon.

12/8/2017 2:08 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Lil Peep died from an overdose of Fentanyl and Xanax, according to the toxicology report ... TMZ has learned.

The Pima County Medical Examiner conducted the testing and found the cause of death came from the "combined toxic effects of fentanyl and alprazolam." Alprazolam is generic form of the anti-anxiety drug Xanax. 

There were a ton of other drugs in his system though. According to the report, obtained by TMZ, he tested positive for marijuana, cocaine and the painkiller Tramadol in his blood. His urine tested positive for all those drugs, plus other powerful opiates such as Hydrocodone, Hydromorphone (Dilaudid), Oxycodone and Oxymorphone. He had no alcohol in his system.

The M.E. says the death was accidental. It's known that combining Fentanyl and Xanax can cause respiratory distress, coma and possibly death.

As we reported, the 21-year-old rapper was found dead on his tour bus during a stop in Tucson, Arizona. He was unresponsive and they were unable to revive him.

Surfer Bros Fight for H'Wood Hills Ragers ... C'mon, City Council Dudes!

12/8/2017 9:46 AM PST

L.A.'s crackdown on Hollywood Hills house parties isn't sitting well with a couple of surfer bros who crashed a city council meeting, and punked the hell outta the old dudes.

Self-proclaimed "activist and house party enthusiast" Chad Kroeger addressed the city council this week to fight for the rights of his people, and stop the "future atroxity" of outlawed ragers. His impassioned plea was rudely interrupted. Some city council guy wasn't digging his story, apparently.

It's all good, though ... Chad's pal, JT, stepped to the mic and made an even bigger point on behalf of parties, saying they're good for the whole damn country.

If this all sounds like a joke, that's only because it is. "Chad" and "JT" did this earlier this year in San Clemente, CA ... where they fought for a 12-foot Paul Walker statue.

Yes, they're comedians and, if nothing else, they're making boring-ass city council meetings way more entertaining.

Keep fighting the good fight, bros.

Ric Flair Admits Hardcore Drinking Binge Hours Before Intestines Ruptured

12/8/2017 8:30 AM PST
Breaking News

Ric Flair is now admitting he had been boozing HARD all day and night in the hours before his medical emergency in August ... and credits his fiancee with saving his life. 

"I had been drinking ... shocker, yeah," Flair said on WWE Hall of Famer Ricky Morton's podcast.

"A friend of mine came in town from Dallas and we had been out all day the day before (the emergency) and again in the morning before I flew back."

Hours later, Flair says ... "I got this really sharp pain in my stomach."

Flair says doctors told him his intestine had "broken open ... and that's the last thing I remember."

Flair had previously said that decades of heavy drinking led to the medical emergency -- but we had no idea he was on a binge earlier that day. 

The pro wrestling legend was put into a medically induced coma while doctors scrambled to save his life. Flair says he doesn't remember a single thing from the 11 days he was on life support ... "I just dreamt."

After he woke up, Flair says he was in such bad shape physically that he couldn't walk or twist the top off a Gatorade bottle ... and went to physical therapy to work on his motor skills. 

Now, Flair is pretty much back to his old self -- and thanks his fiancee, Wendy, for being by his side throughout the entire ordeal. 

Archdiocese of L.A. Holy Crap, Lil Pump Filmed 'Gucci Gang' At Our School?!?!

12/8/2017 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Lil Pump got a Catholic elementary school in serious trouble with the Archdiocese of L.A. because it wrongfully allowed the rapper to film himself smoke weed, drink lean and hold bags full of kush for his "Gucci Gang" music video.

Blessed Sacrament School is where the insanely popular video -- amassing 244 million views on YouTube -- was filmed, but there was a huge problem ... the school never told its bosses at the Archdiocese about the video or what would be in it.

A spokesperson for the Archdiocese of L.A. tells TMZ ... the school failed to follow filming policy and procedures, which are extremely strict at all of its schools and parishes.

The Archdiocese had zero clue Lil Pump would be rolling up to the school's parking lot in a Lamborghini with a blunt in one hand and double-cupping in the other.

It gets worse ... he slaps a teacher with a bag of pot in the school's hallway and he serves his video classmates sizzurp. The Archdiocese says it's looking into the matter. We reached out to the school for comment, but so far no word back.

We've seen this before -- Fetty Wap filmed similar scenes at a Paterson, NJ high school ... resulting in the principal getting suspended.

Chester Bennington Autopsy Report Released

12/5/2017 12:39 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Chester Bennington's autopsy shows he had a trace amount of alcohol in his system when he hanged himself ... TMZ has learned.

According to the autopsy and toxicology results, obtained by TMZ, the Linkin Park singer's blood also tested "presumptive positive" for MDMA (ecstasy) ... based on one test. Two subsequent tests did not detect the drug, and the ultimate conclusion was Chester was not under the influence of drugs when he died. 

Authorities found a prescription bottle of Zolpidem -- generic Ambien -- on his dresser. There was also a pint glass of Corona, which was less than half full -- and an empty bottle of Stella Artois.

Police found pieces of fingernail underneath his iPhone and on a table in the bedroom. Chester's wife, Talinda, told cops he would do that when he was anxious. She said Chester had a history of depression and previous suicide attempts -- including one in 2006 when he left the house with a gun after drinking heavily.

Talinda added Chester was currently in an outpatient treatment program. A month before his death, Chester reportedly told friends he'd been sober for 6 months.

He'd been prescribed anti-depressants in the past, but had not taken them for more than a year ... according to Talinda.

TMZ broke the story ... Chester committed suicide July 20 by hanging himself. The report says he was found with a black Hugo Boss leather belt around his neck. He still had the boarding pass in his pocket from the flight he'd taken from Phoenix the day before his death.

There was no suicide note, but police found what they call an "apparent biography," which was handwritten. 

International Olympic Committee Nyet!! Russia Banned From '18 Winter Olympics

12/5/2017 11:08 AM PST

Russia is BANNED from the '18 Winter Olympics after the country was caught running a MASSIVE doping scheme ... the International Olympic Committee announced Tuesday.

Athletes from Russia -- across every sport -- won't be allowed to compete representing the nation, the Russian flag won't be flown, and officials from the country aren't welcome in PyeongChang, South Korea.

FYI -- Russian athletes -- who can prove they aren't doping -- can compete under a neutral flag ... meaning they aren't reppin' a country.

The IOC hit Russia with the unprecedented penalty after completing an independent investigation into the country for operating an expansive state-sponsored doping program ... that included widespread cheating in the 2014 games in Sochi, Russia.

The United States Olympic Committee addressed the punishment, saying ... "The IOC took a strong and principled decision. There were no perfect options, but this decision will clearly make it less likely that this ever happens again. Now it is time to look ahead to PyeongChang."

It's unclear if, and how, Russia will attempt to counter the IOC's decision.
