T.J. Miller Whip it Good Driver Says Here's Proof T.J. was High

1/7/2017 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0104_tj_miller_alleged_evidence_launchThe driver suing T.J. Miller for getting high and smacking him around might have some visual proof his story's true -- at least the "getting high" part.

TMZ obtained photos of Whip-It! refills the driver claims T.J. left behind. The driver claims in his lawsuit T.J. was super high when he went on a tirade after the 2 got in an argument over Trump.

We broke the story driver Wilson Deon Thomas III claims T.J. was inhaling nitrous oxide from Whip-Its! and became increasingly violent before striking him on his head and shoulder.

The photos show a box of Whip-It! refills and a bunch of empty canisters in the backseat.

However, T.J.'s attorney says the driver's full of it and only trying for a money grab ... he also points out the fact there's no evidence that links Miller to using the empty canisters in the pics. 

'Hollyweed' Sign Culprit High-ding ... Fears Being Arrested

1/6/2017 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0105_Zach-Fernandez-AKA-Jesus-Hands-tmz_wmThe guy who transformed the Hollywood sign into a beacon for stoners has gone underground ... and he's brought enough weed to stay in hiding for a while.

Zach Fernandez -- aka "Jesushands" -- is lying low in an undisclosed location on the heels of his "Hollyweed" stunt. Sources close to Zach tell us he's afraid he'll be charged with a crime.

We're told he's left L.A. and doesn't plan to return anytime soon ... especially after getting a flurry of calls from LAPD. He also caught wind cops were contacting his friends and co-workers too.

LAPD tells us Zach agreed to meet with detectives early this week, but never showed. He's been MIA ever since. Cops aren't exactly throwing out a dragnet because he's only facing a trespassing charge. Translation: they've got bigger fish to fry.

Even though he's on the lam, Zach's getting praise from the pot community and a major gift of green. We're told Tommy Chong gave him the POUND of weed seen in the pic before he left town.

In all it's glory.🙏🏼✌🏼💜 #hollyweed photo: @strapsbyelroobs

Warren Sapp Battery Accuser Got DUI On Night of Incident

1/6/2017 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0105-paula-trickey-mug-shot

The 'Paul Blart' actress suing Warren Sapp for battery was arrested for DUI just hours after the alleged incident ... TMZ Sports has learned.

As we previously reported, Paula Trickey -- who was a recurring character on "The O.C." -- claimed Sapp drunkenly knocked her to the ground during a 2015 ESPN Super Bowl party in Arizona.

Trickey claimed Sapp was being kicked out of the party around 1 AM when he tried running through the crowd and slammed into her ... causing serious injuries.

We did some digging and found out just a few hours later at 3:40 AM, the Scottsdale PD popped Trickey for DUI claiming she reeked of alcohol, bombed the "walk the line test" and blew a .119.

For her part, Trickey denied she was wasted -- claiming she only had 1 glass of wine that evening at Jim McMahon's house .... yeah, THAT Jim McMahon. She later pled guilty to DUI.

Sapp adamantly denied knocking Trickey down and claimed he wasn't even at the party that night. We looked through hundreds of pics from the event and couldn't find 1 shot of Sapp.

Now, with this new info you gotta believe Sapp's team will try to argue that Trickey was drunk and might have confused him with another big, black, bald football player.

It's possible she was just buying a Christmas gift for a friend, or this explains her initially chill response to the New Year's Eve mess.

1229-ricky-hatton-getty-01Shocking statements from boxing great Ricky Hatton ... who revealed that he was suicidal after his fighting career came to an end ... saying, "I tried to kill myself several times."

Hatton was 45-3 as a pro -- and fought the likes of Floyd Mayweather, Manny Pacquiao and Paulie Malignaggi

But in an interview with BBC Radio 4, Hatton says he battled depression after he retired. 

"I used to go to the pub, come back, take the knife out and sit there in the dark crying hysterically."

"There were times when I hadn't had a drink for days and I'd still come home and if something went through my mind I'd start pondering something. It was the same outcome whether I was having a drink or wasn't having a drink."

"But in the end I thought I'll end up drinking myself to death because I was so miserable."

"I was coming off the rails with my drinking and that led to drugs. It was like a runaway train."

Hatton says he's in a better place now ... but says boxers need a better support system to deal with these kinds of issues. 

"If boxing had a professional boxing association or something like that, I think it would be a better place."

Doug Martin Entering 'Treatment Facility' ... I Need Help

12/28/2016 1:11 PM PST
Breaking News

1228_doug_martin_gettyTampa Bay Bucs running back Doug Martin just announced he's entering a treatment facility after violating the league's drug policy. 

Martin just issued a statement saying, "I was notified last week of a four-game suspension for violating the league's drug policy."

The 27-year-old did not reveal which substance he tested positive for though NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting the substance in question is Adderall.

"My initial instinct was to appeal the suspension and finish the season with my teammates. However, after numerous discussions with people close to me -- including Coach Koetter -- I am starting the suspension immediately so I can enter a treatment facility and receive the help I truly need."

"On the field, I must be strong and determined to push through both pain and injuries to become an elite NFL running back. Off the field, I have tried that same approach in my personal life. My shortcomings in this area have taught me both that I cannot win these personal battles alone and that there is no shame in asking for help."

"I sincerely apologize to the Glazer family, General Manager Jason Licht and the entire Tampa Bay organization, my teammates and our tremendous fans. This was not the season I envisioned and I have let everyone down, including myself. However, adversity yields opportunity and I ask for your support in my battle to overcome these personal issues."

Martin fell off big time in 2016 after a stellar 2015 season in which he rushed for more than 1,400 yards.

He missed 6 games this season due to injury but even when he was healthy he didn't play well ... only averaging 2.9 yards per carry.
