Desiigner Arrest Driver Served Time for Illegal Steroids

9/13/2016 11:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

091316_desiigner_driver_primary_v3It's becoming clearer than ever who owned the steroids found in the SUV in which Desiigner was riding ... because TMZ has found a criminal trail leading right to the driver. 

Scott Siegel was driving the SUV when another driver called 911, claiming someone in the vehicle had pointed a gun at him.  Although no gun was found, cops retrieved 302 pills from the SUV's console ... all of which turned out to be steroids. 

Although Desiigner and everyone else in the SUV have been charged with illegal possession of drugs, we've learned steroids have been Siegel's thing for years. In fact, he was convicted in 2010 of distribution and possession of anabolic steroids and served 3 years in federal prison.

0913-roidy-roidhead-mug-shot-2009-TMZ-01On top of that, Siegel appears in the movie "The Wrestler" in which he sells steroids to Mickey Rourke's character.

Although all the evidence points to Siegel as the person in possession of the steroids, the D.A. is not backing off the drug charge against Desiigner, who was in the backseat and claims he had no idea drugs were in the vehicle.

Law enforcement tells us it's common in New York for cops to arrest everyone in a vehicle in which drugs are found, and down the line the D.A. drops charges against the people to whom the evidence doesn't stick.

Seems it's just a matter of time before Desiigner is cleared.

Breaking News

0912-abby-wambach-divorce-sarah-huffman-TMZ-TWITTER-01Abby Wambach says she's divorcing her wife Sarah Huffman -- the woman she famously kissed after winning the 2015 World Cup. 

Wambach and Huffman were married in 2013. Huffman is a former soccer player who played on a pro team with Wambach. 

0912-abby-wambach-wife-kiss-2015-GETTY-01Wambach says their marriage had been on the rocks since at least April ... when Abby was arrested for drunk driving

In related news, Wambach is also opening up about her struggles with alcohol and prescription pill abuse -- saying she's been abusing Vicodin, Adderall and Ambien for years. 

"I was stubborn and I was in denial," Wambach told the AP.

"That night getting arrested was one of the best things that has ever happened to me. Because if I don't get so publicly shamed and publicly humiliated, I don't think I wake up."

Wambach was arrested for DUI in Portland, Oregon on April 3rd. She later pled guilty in the case and has been sober ever since. 


Desiigner NO Methadone, No Methamphetamine, No OxyContin Found in SUV

9/12/2016 7:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0912-desiigner-getting-booked-SNAPCHAT-03Authorities in New York have some hard decisions to make, because we've learned the illegal narcotics allegedly found in the SUV in which Desiigner was riding were nothing more than steroids.

As we reported, law enforcement told us the stash of pills in the SUV console were OxyContin, methadone and steroids.  According to the criminal complaint against Desiigner and the others in the SUV, the arresting officer believed the pills were methamphetamines.

Turns out, all the pills were steroids, including methandrostenolone, PharmOne Oxandrolone and Halotest Fluxymesteron. In all, there were 302 pills in various Ziploc bags ... all steroids.  

It appears the steroids all belonged to the driver ... not Desiigner, who's rail thin.

TMZ broke the story, Desiigner was initially charged with possession and intent to sell controlled substances. The intent to sell charge has been dropped but he's still being charged with possession, even though the drugs were not on his person.  

Desiigner says he had no idea there were drugs of any sort in the car. 

We called the D.A. to find out if they were going to drop the drug charges against Desiigner ... but they had no comment.


WWE's Bo Dallas Video Of Drunken Airport Arrest ... Are Those Nunchucks?

9/12/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ Sports has obtained footage of WWE superstar Bo Dallas being arrested at an airport in Texas ... moments after he was booted from his flight to Mexico for drunkenly yelling at the flight crew. 

In the video, taken on August 26th, you see Bo can barely stand up straight and is slurring his words when approached by security at Dallas Fort Worth airport. 

According to the police report, first obtained by, Bo told the cops he had been drinking earlier in the day -- and when asked how much he replied, "I'm not really planning on driving tonight."

Bo was arrested for public intoxication -- but cops noted he was extremely cooperative. 

Bo told cops he was a wrestler for WWE -- and officers noted he's a "strong boy." 

Make sure to check out the end of the clip when the cops search his backpack and find an item they believe to be nunchucks ... but it's really a jump rope. 

No word if Bo ever got to Mexico.

Chris Brown Party House Closed ... No More Randoms!

9/11/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0907-chris-brown-house-tmz-fox11Chris Brown is done hosting frat house parties ... blaming his male friends and thirsty chicks for his recent arrest.

Our Chris sources tell us he's now enforcing a strict guest policy at his Calabasas mansion -- and letting everyone in his crew know he's as serious as death ... no more randoms allowed.

We told he's pulling back on parties for starters, but there's this problem with his 2 roommates/best friends. They now have to submit a guest list to Chris IN WRITING, and they must describe who they are with sufficient details so he can decide whether he wants them in his home.

We're told he also is imposing another strict policy ... guests are prohibited from bringing drugs or alcohol. The only booze and drugs allowed are his.


Desiigner Gun Charge Dropped

9/10/2016 6:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0910-desiigner-tmz-01Desiigner just caught a big break ... the D.A. has dropped the felony gun charge for which he was arrested Thursday night, but he's not out of the woods.

Law enforcement tells TMZ, they cased the SUV in which the "Panda" rapper was a passenger, but found no gun.  The arrest for felony possession of a loaded gun was based on what the driver of another car told cops, but the D.A. clearly felt that wasn't enough.

The D.A. has also dropped the charge of felony possession of a controlled substance with the intent to sell.  

TMZ broke the story, the passengers in the SUV and the driver of the other car were involved in a road rage incident, and when cops tracked down the SUV they said they found numerous pills on the console.  We're told the drugs were Oxycontin, methadone and steroids.

Desiigner is being arraigned Saturday A.M. in an NYC court.  He still faces charges of possession of a controlled substance and menacing.  It's unclear why the menacing charge is still on the table since it was based on him waiving a gun at the other driver.


Desiigner Drug Charges Include Methadone, Steroids and OxyContin

9/10/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0908-desiigner-tmzDesiigner is in a heap of trouble, because TMZ has learned the drugs cops allegedly found in the SUV in which he was riding included OxyContin, methadone and illegal steroids.

TMZ broke the story, the passengers in the SUV and the driver of a car were involved in a road rage incident Thursday night on the streets of New York. The driver of the car claims Desiigner, who was sitting in the back seat of the SUV, pulled a gun and pointed it at him.

The driver of the car called 911, and cops found the SUV, searched it and found a cache of pills in the console ... so many that all 5 people in the car were charged with felony possession of a controlled substance with the intent to sell.

It's interesting ... methadone is used to treat opiate addiction -- opiates like OxyContin, but methadone can also be abused. As for steroids, it's unclear why they were in the car.

Desiigner was also charged with felony possession of a loaded firearm. Law enforcement sources tell us, cops did not find a gun in the SUV but the rapper was still charged based on the description given by the other driver.  

You gotta wonder, how would the other driver know the gun was loaded? He doesn't, but we're told cops routinely file such a charge when they have evidence a gun was in a car. They presume it's loaded.

Law enforcement sources tell us cops have obtained a search warrant to literally take the SUV apart, to see if there's a gun in a hidden compartment.


Desiigner Arrested for Drugs, Intent to Sell and Loaded Gun

9/9/2016 6:34 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0909-desiigner-arrested-tmz-02Desiigner was arrested Thursday night in NYC in a road rage incident that led to felony drug and weapons charges ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the people in the SUV and the driver of another vehicle began screaming at each other. The driver of the other car called 911 and claimed Desiigner pointed a gun at him. The SUV left but the driver of the car took down the license plate number.

Cops found the SUV a short time later, searched it, and found a large quantity of loose pills in the center console. Our law enforcement sources say they found Oxycontin and other drugs.

Desiigner and 4 others in the SUV were arrested. All 5 were arrested and charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance and criminal possession of drugs with intent to sell, which are felonies.

Desiigner was also charged with felony criminal possession of a loaded weapon and menacing (that's for allegedly pointing a gun at the other driver).

All 5 are still in custody.


Iman Shumpert Arrested for DUI Marijuana ... Possession of Weed

9/9/2016 7:38 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details


Cleveland Cavs star Iman Shumpert was arrested for driving under the influence of marijuana back in August ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

According to the police report, Shumpert was pulled over outside of Atlanta on August 10th around 11:37 PM for a lane change violation and because his taillights weren't on in his rented Audi A3. 

During the stop, the officer says Shumpert reeked of weed -- and his eyes were bloodshot. 

Shumpert told the cop he had just come from his "homegirl's house" and was going to pick up his father from the airport. 

The cop administered a field sobriety test and determined Shumpert was high. Shumpert also admitted he had smoked weed before leaving his friend's house. 

Cops searched the car and found a mason jar with marijuana. 

Cops wanted to perform a blood test on Shumpert but he refused -- claiming, "people would recognize him and it would cause a scene."

Shumpert was handcuffed and arrested for DUI marijuana and possession of weed (less than an ounce). He was also cited for failure to maintain his lane. 

The Cavs issued a statement saying they have discussed the situation with Iman and "will monitor the progression of the pending case."

"A court date has not been set at this point, and neither Iman or the team will have any additional comments while the matter progresses through the legal process."


Johnny Manziel Double Fisting ... At Texas Bar

9/9/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Here we go again ... Johnny Manziel back to his old ways in Texas -- double fisting drinks at a bar in Austin and TMZ Sports has the footage.

Manziel recently revealed he re-enrolled in classes at Texas A&M -- and clearly, he's adopted the college student mentality ... because the 23-year-old went raging like your average coed on Tuesday night.

This video was shot at The Rooftop On 6th ... after Manziel had already hit up several other bars in the area.

Unclear what he's drinking, but sources at the bar tell us it wasn't water or a Shirley Temple ... or anything else non-alcoholic.

Manziel has been on a tear lately -- just last week he was partying in Miami with Future.

As for Johnny's vow of sobriety from back in June -- that's over.

Montel Williams I'm Dealing High Grade Pot ... But Not for Stoners

9/8/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0907-montel-williams-lenitivlabs-marijuana-TMZ-01Montel Williams is about to launch a line of potent medical marijuana products to fight chronic pain -- but of course ... it's also gonna get some people SUPER high. 

Montel's taking his marijuana advocacy to the next level -- launching a bud line called LenitivLabs. He's been a medical marijuana advocate for 17 years, since he smokes the potent stuff to combat his constant pain related to Multiple Sclerosis.

Montel says his pot strain will be the highest quality and consistency without any harmful additives. If all goes well -- meaning big sales -- he wants to fund more research for medical cannabis uses.

LenitivLabs will make its debut in L.A. at the Cannabis World Congress and Business Exposition -- yep, that's a thing -- where we're guessing there will be more than a few high attendees.


Scott Hall Booted From Airport Bar For Calling Bartender a Bitch

9/6/2016 10:34 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Pro wrestler Scott Hall was disqualified from a T.G.I. Friday's for being drunk, rowdy and disrespectful to the bartender.

A witness tells us Hall was at the Friday's in the Atlanta airport on Saturday ... drinking Coors Lights and tequila shots. He allegedly hit on the bartender and called her a bitch, and that's when trouble started brewing with the bartender's father ... who was at the bar. 

We're told Hall didn't believe the guy was really her dad, and a manager stepped in and asked him to leave -- when he refused, someone called cops.

Law enforcement sources tell us officers responded to the intoxicated person call. They recognized Hall as his former wrestling alter ego, Razor Ramon ... shook his hand and calmed the situation. You can see in the video though, Scott didn't want to give up his beer easily.

We're told Scott left without further incident and no police report was filed.

Hall has a history with booze and drug abuse, but has said he's been sober recently. We've reached out to his rep.


Johnny Manziel Clubbin' with Future ... Is That Champagne???

9/2/2016 8:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Johnny Manziel put his NFL comeback on hold Thursday night to party in Miami with rap superstar Future ... and it appears he's drinkin' again too. 

Manziel and Future turned all the way up at STORY nightclub -- where the ex-NFL quarterback got onstage and hung with Future's entourage. 

As for the boozing, earlier in the night Manziel Snapchatted a clip of someone pouring him a glass of champagne. It appears he drank it ... despite his vow to go sober while he trains to get back in the NFL. 

Manziel has been in Miami for a couple of days ... on Wednesday, he went to see Drake and Future in concert.

He was rockin' OVO gear, an OVO chain and had a VIP pass hanging around his neck -- so, we're guessing he's still on good terms with his old pal Drake.
