Tiger Woods Probation for DUI Ends Early ... Free to Drink Again

9/18/2018 11:01 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Tiger Woods can throw back a celebratory cocktail or 2 because he's off probation for his DUI ... TMZ has learned.

Eldrick's probation was terminated by a judge a month earlier than expected because he "successfully completed all regular and special conditions" ... according to a new legal doc obtained by TMZ.

As we reported ... Woods copped a plea in his DUI case at his Florida hearing on October 27, 2017, and as part of his deal to avoid jail time he agreed to enter a DUI diversion program. He was also put on probation for 12 months, ordered to perform 50 hours of community service, and prohibited from drinking alcohol or taking drugs during the probation period ... but now it's over.

The golf legend was arrested for DUI on May 29, 2017 in Jupiter, FL after cops found him asleep at the wheel of his 2015 Mercedes. Once he awoke, Tiger was a discombobulated mess, which he claimed was the result of taking a cocktail of Rx drugs.

Dash cam footage of his arrest showed Tiger was clearly in no shape to be behind the wheel, and he later went to rehab to get help for his prescription drug issues.

NASCAR CEO Brian France Pleads Not Guilty In Oxy & DWI Case

9/18/2018 8:36 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

NASCAR Chairman and CEO Brian France ain't exactly rolling over in his DWI and Oxycodone possession case ... 'cause he pled not guilty to multiple charges in an NY court.

France -- who's currently on a leave of absence from NASCAR -- was arrested August 5 in Sag Harbor, NY.

Cops say they pulled BF over and suspected he was intoxicated ... so they gave him a field sobriety test -- which they say he bombed.

During the stop, police say they also found Oxycodone pain pills.

To make matters worse, we're told France name-dropped President Trump during the arrest ... in an effort to skate on the charges.

France's attorney appeared on his behalf in Sag Harbor Village Court on Friday ... and pled not guilty to misdemeanor criminal possession of a controlled substance, aggravated DWI, and DWI.

He's facing up to a year in jail for each charge.

France is due back in court October 5.

Bird Scooters This is How He Rolls ... Past Checkpoint, into a DUI Arrest!!

9/18/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Those super popular/publicly menacing Bird scooters are NOT the most convenient way to get around ... IF you're allegedly wasted and attempting to blow past a DUI checkpoint.

This particular Bird got trapped by LAPD West Traffic over the weekend, and TMZ got this pic of the 25-year-old rider going through his field sobriety test. Law enforcement sources tell us the guy was riding by on the sidewalk. Mistake #1 -- they're supposed to ride on the street.

Mistake #2 -- we're told cops smelled booze on the guy's breath when they stopped him. Next thing he knows, instead of scooting off into the night ... he's trying to put one foot in front of the other.

We're told he refused to take a breathalyzer test and bombed his field sobriety test. He was arrested for misdemeanor DUI.

The takeaway for all you Bird fans out there -- a motorized scooter IS a vehicle, just like a car or a bicycle, and it IS against the law to operate 'em under the influence. Bird even spells that out in its user agreement.

This concludes your Sunday Funday bummer.

Dorial Green-Beckham Pleads Guilty to Drunk Driving

9/17/2018 9:25 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ex-NFL wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham has pled guilty to misdemeanor DWI stemming from a December arrest in Missouri ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

The story behind the arrest is crazy ... 

The 25-year-old had gotten a call around 3 AM on Dec. 30 from a friend -- who was being arrested for DWI -- and needed Dorial to come pick him up. 

When the WR arrived to the scene in his white Cadillac Escalade, cops say they noticed Dorial seemed drunk too and administered field sobriety tests ... which he failed. So, Dorial was arrested too. 

Green-Beckham was later charged with misdemeanor Driving While Intoxicated -- and, according to court records, he appeared in court on Monday and pled guilty. 

Sentencing is set for October -- he's facing up to 6 months in jail and a $1,000 fine. 

Dorial Green-Beckham was one of the top high school WRs ever -- but never reached his potential in college or the NFL due to off-the-field issues

He was drafted by the Titans in the 2nd round of the 2015 Draft but didn't last there long. The Eagles picked him up in 2016 and he played 1 season -- racking up 36 catches for 392 yards and 2 TDs. 

The Eagles released him before the 2017 season.

Mary Kay Letourneau's husband is being forced to cut back on the partying ... 'cause the plea deal in his DUI case calls for him to tone down his alcohol and cannabis consumption.

Vili Fualaau pled guilty to reckless driving and, as part of his sentence, he's getting an ignition interlock device installed in his car. If he has any booze, the car won't start.

He's also prohibited from having any liquor or recreational drugs for at least 8 hours prior to getting behind the wheel ... plus he's got to complete a substance abuse course. 

Vili will also spend 5 days in a community work crew program. As long as he completes these terms and keeps his nose clean for the next 2 years, Vili won't serve any jail time.

TMZ broke the story ... Vili was busted for DUI this February in Washington and prosecutors say he had THC in his blood and a BAC of .08. 

We've got some ideas for ways Vili can release stress without his vices ... after all, he's been banging Mary since he was 13.

Soccer's Hugo Lloris Pleads Guilty to Drunk Driving ... After Pukey Arrest

9/12/2018 6:00 AM PDT
Breaking News

You could say Hugo Lloris was caught green handed ... because prosecutors say the soccer superstar puked on himself the night he was arrested for drunk driving.

The captain of the World Cup champion France soccer team pled guilty in a British court Wednesday morning stemming from an August 24 arrest.

During the hearing, prosecutors detailed the events of the evening -- and it's clear, dude was HAMMERED.

Officials say the goalkeeper was pulled over in his Porsche at 2:20 AM after cops noticed he was "not moving smoothly, and was travelling at a slower speed than expected."

He almost hit several parked cars and then ran a red light.

When cops pulled him over, "Officers observed his speech was slurred, he was helped from the vehicle by an officer, he was unstable on his feet, and there was evidence of vomit at the scene."

Gross.

A breathalyzer showed his blood alcohol was more than TWICE the legal limit.

Ultimately, the 31-year-old Tottenham star was hit with a $65,000 fine and his license will be suspended for 20 months.

His attorney issued a statement saying Lloris didn't intend to get drunk that night -- but fans at a restaurant kept buying him drinks.

The attorney also said, "On July 15 he was arguably the proudest man on the planet. Just 40 days later, he was arrested. He experienced the indignity of being handcuffed and put in a police station overnight. The spectacular fall from grace is not lost on Mr. Lloris."

EXCLUSIVE

Another day, another "Wizards of Waverly Place" arrest -- this time it's Selena Gomez's former onscreen love interest ... who got busted for DUI at Burning Man in real life.

Actor Daniel Samonas -- who played Dean Moriarty on the Disney Channel show -- was arrested and booked for driving under the influence in Pershing County, NV ... one of the counties that intersect in the vast Black Rock Desert where BM goes down.

We're still trying to figure out exactly when this happened, but presumably it occurred sometime between August 25 and September 3 -- the dates of Burning Man 2018. One thing's for sure ... Daniel was definitely there enjoying the dust and weird outfits. He posted pics from the festival.

We broke the story ... another 'WoWP' star, David Henrie, was also arrested this week after being caught with a loaded gun at LAX. He later apologized for the incident, saying ... "More than anything I am humiliated and embarrassed that this even happened."

Where's that Waverly Place magic when you need it, right? Someone get Alex on the horn, STAT.

EXCLUSIVE

9/11 3:20 PM PT -- TMZ has learned the case is now officially closed.

Mac Miller's death is forcing the L.A. City Attorney to complete a legal formality ... letting him off the hook in his DUI case. 

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the City Attorney's Office will officially drop the charges against Mac. He was supposed to be arraigned Tuesday in an L.A. courtroom, but we're told it's been taken off the docket and official paperwork will soon be filed.

TMZ broke the story ... Mac was arrested in May after smashing his G-Wagon into a utility pole in the San Fernando Valley. He walked away from the accident, but cops arrested him later after tracking him down at his home.

Video of the aftermath showed just how bad the crash was, but Mac wasn't seriously hurt.

As we reported, Mac ended up blowing twice the legal limit.

TMZ broke the story ... Mac died of an apparent overdose last week at his home. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Mac Miller was 26.

Vince Vaughn has just been charged with DUI for his arrest nearly 3 months ago.

TMZ broke the story ... the actor was busted in Manhattan Beach, CA back in June after he was stopped at a checkpoint. Police say he was uncooperative when officers told him and his passenger to step out of the car.

The L.A.County D.A. has now charged Vaughn with DUI and disobeying an officer.

As we first reported ... Vaughn was at a hotel bar holding a drink in his hand just 2 and a half hours before he was arrested.

It's very unlikely Vince will get any jail time -- first-time DUI offenders in California typically get probation.

Hugo Lloris -- the star goalie on France's 2018 World Cup championship team -- was arrested for drunk driving in London, officials say. 

The 31-year-old superstar -- who's also the goalkeeper for Tottenham -- was pulled over around 2:20 AM on Friday morning for a routine traffic stop ... but cops suspected he was plastered.

Lloris was later released on bail and is due back in court on Sept. 11. 

Lloris was scheduled to play for Tottenham in their next game on Monday night -- unclear if he will be suspended due to the arrest.

Mac Miller Charged with DUI ... After Car Crash

EXCLUSIVE

Mac Miller has officially been slapped with a DUI charge after his scary accident earlier this year ... TMZ has learned.

The L.A. City Attorney's Office filed charges against Mac stemming from his May car wreck. He's facing two counts of DUI -- one for driving under the influence and another for driving with a BAC at 0.08 or higher. He wasn't charged with hit and run, for which he was originally booked.

We broke the story ... MM was arrested in May for DUI and hit and run after cops found his 2016 G-Wagon smashed against a utility pole in the San Fernando Valley. Based on video of the scene, it's a miracle Mac wasn't seriously hurt ... 'cause it was bad.

Cops say they showed up to Mac's house after the fact and had him use a breathalyzer ... we're told he blew twice the legal limit. Officers cuffed him and hauled him off to jail, but did note he was incredibly polite.

If convicted ... he faces up to 6 months in jail and a $1,000 fine ... but that's only theoretical -- almost every first offender gets off with probation, community service and a license suspension.

It's been a rough year for the dude ... his DUI arrest -- and now subsequent charges -- follows a breakup with Ariana Grande ... who's now engaged to Pete Davidson

8/7/2018 6:07 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Who needs CSI when you have the Internet? 

The cops who arrested NASCAR honcho Brian France found 5 oxycodone pills on him during the bust and used the website Drugs.com to identity them ... this according to court docs obtained by TMZ Sports

The Sag Harbor PD says the pills -- yellow in color, labeled T194 -- came right up on the website ... which touts its "pill identifier" feature on the home page. 

Don't worry, the cops also submitted the pills to the lab for confirmation. 

There's more ... cops say France's blood alcohol level was .19 -- more than twice the legal limit in New York when he was busted at 7:08 PM on Sunday. 

During the arrest, France had slurred speech, glassy eyes and was unsteady on his feet.

France was booked for drunk driving and criminal possession of a controlled substance. 

If convicted on both counts, he faces up to a year in jail and loss of driving privileges for a year. 

France has taken a leave of absence from NASCAR -- and his uncle will fill in while he's away.
