7/17/2018 2:48 PM PDT
Breaking News

Arizona Cardinals GM Steve Keim has pled guilty to an extreme DUI stemming from a July 4th arrest ... and the team has hit him with a 5-week suspension. 

As we previously reported, Keim was pulled over in Chandler, AZ after cops said he was swerving in his truck and almost hit a curb while making a turn.

During the stop, Keim told cops he only had 2 beers that evening -- along with some pizza. He refused to take a breathalyzer. 

Now, the NFL team has issued a statement saying they've suspended Keim for 5 weeks and hit him with a $200,000 fine. The money will be donated to the AZ chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Keim has apologized for the incident and says, "I fully deserve and accept the punishment that has been issued."

"My goal is to do everything I can to grow from this personally and help others learn from my inexcusable behavior.”

7/17/2018 9:51 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

NY Jets rookie tight end Chris Herndon is VERY lucky to be alive -- and lucky he didn't kill anyone -- because the newly obtained video of his DUI crash is terrifying. 

TMZ Sports got the police body cam footage showing the moment cops arrived to the I-80 highway in Jersey on June 2 ... after Herndon smashed into another vehicle and flipped his car. 

You can see Herndon's flipped 2018 Nissan Armada -- which witnesses say was driving around 100 mph when he struck a Toyota towing a flatbed trailer. 

Miraculously, both Herndon and the other driver -- a 76-year-old man -- escaped without any major injuries. 

Cops suspected 22-year-old Herndon was drunk and administered a field sobriety test -- which he bombed.

Herndon claimed he only had 2 cups of wine before getting behind the wheel. He blew a .14 ... nearly twice the legal limit. 

The former University of Miami player was eventually arrested and charged with DUI. He's due in court next month.

Breaking News

Here's the police body cam footage of Arizona Cardinals General Manager Steve Keim -- who told cops he only had 2 beers on July 4 ... but, refused to take a breathalyzer test. 

Keim was pulled over in Chandler, Arizona after cops said he was swerving in his truck and almost hit a curb while making a turn. 

During the stop, Keim told cops he only had 2 beers that evening -- along with some pizza. 

The cops weren't convinced he was sober. 

Keim told the officers he couldn't do any walking sobriety tests due to a messed up knee -- so, cops made him do the "follow my pen with your eye" test instead. He bombed that. 

When cops asked him to take a breathalyzer, he refused ... telling the officer, "Nah. I'm not gonna do that."

Didn't matter ... he was arrested for DUI. Keim was cited and released a few hours later. 

Boxer Victor Ortiz Allegedly Violates Probation Warrant Issued

7/11/2018 9:21 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Boxer Victor Ortiz is a wanted man ... after officials said he violated his probation in his DUI case -- and now a warrant has been issued for his arrest.  

As we previously reported, the former WBC welterweight champ -- and "Dancing with the Stars" contestant -- was busted for drunk driving back in 2016 and was later sentenced to 3 years probation.  

Well ... according to court docs, he was supposed to check in with his probation officer on June 20 -- but failed to do so -- and was then ordered to appear in court on July 10. 

He blew that off too ... so a violation of probation warrant was issued. 

It's not like cops will be out hunting Ortiz down -- but if he has a brush with the law, he'll be arrested and hauled into court. Bail has already been set at $5,000. 

We reached out to Victor's camp -- but so far, no word back. 

Rodney King Beating Cop Stacey Koon Charged with DUI

7/5/2018 10:21 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Stacey Koon -- the former LAPD sergeant who went to prison for his role in the Rodney King beating -- has been charged with DUI ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us the L.A. County District Attorney's Office formally filed charges against Koon after he was arrested in May. He's facing 2 counts of misdemeanor DUI.

We broke the story ... Koon was busted after hitting a parked pickup truck. Cops who responded to the scene suspected he was under the influence of alcohol, and cited him on the spot. We're told his blood alcohol was almost twice the legal limit.

Koon was acquitted in the original King beating case -- which sparked riots in L.A. -- but was later found guilty in federal court for violating King's civil rights. He served 30 months in prison.

If convicted now, Koon faces a max of 6 months in jail and a $1,000 fine -- but, that's unlikely because he's a first time DUI offender.

EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber's head of security unleashed a stream in EPIC proportions after he was arrested for DUI ... and TMZ's obtained the police body cam footage that'll BLOW. YOUR. MIND.

The footage starts with Bieber's bodyguard, Michael Arana, in the back of a squad car after he was busted back in November 2017. You can see and hear him tell the officer he needs to use the restroom. The cop replies, "How bad is it?" Michael says, "Real bad" ... and he was NOT kidding.

Check it out ... what happens next was life imitating art. Hence, this 'Revenge of the Nerds 2' clip, which is EXACTLY what crossed the cop's mind after Michael finally finished. INSANE.

EXCLUSIVE

The damages to the G-Wagon Mac Miller crashed will be someone else's problem ... once a winning bid's accepted at auction. 

The whip's being auctioned off by the fine folks at Copart. The insurance company totaled the vehicle, because the repair cost exceeded its value.

The estimated retail value of the car is around $100k ... the top bid so far is just north of $12k. Buyer beware ... the car's got a few scratches, to say the least. 

The auction runs through Wednesday.

TMZ broke the story ... Mac crashed and knocked over a utility pole back in May. He was arrested at his home for DUI and hit and run after admitting to driving drunk. So far, he has not been charged, but if he is and he's convicted ... it'll be Uber time. 

Justin Bieber Bodyguard Avoids Felony Charges In Miami DUI Case

6/14/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Justin Bieber's head of security lucked out BIG time in his DUI case from last year -- avoiding any felony charges after allegedly injuring 2 cops and fleeing the scene.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Bieber's chief bodyguard, Michael Arana, ended up pleading guilty to misdemeanor reckless driving. The 2 misdemeanor charges of DUI and 2 felony charges of fleeing the scene that he was originally facing were dropped.

We're told prosecutors lacked sufficient evidence to prove he'd actually left the scene of the accident. He had already pulled over -- just 150 yards from the impact -- when cops arrived on the scene. They never chased him.

You'll also recall, Arana refused to submit to a breathalyzer or blood test. Sources say Arana didn't show signs of impairment at the scene, so prosecutors dropped the DUI charge.

All in all, Arana is gonna have to pay about $1,000 in fines, complete 100 hours of community service, and enter into a victim impact program. He'll also be on probation for a year.

Vince was out and about Monday in Manhattan Beach, CA -- the same city where he got busted for drinking and driving Sunday. He was strolling around with a blended juice beverage in hand ... probably a good shot of energy after his rough weekend.

TMZ broke the story ... Vince was arrested for DUI, as well as obstructing an officer. Cops say he and his passenger, who was also arrested, refused to get out of Vince's car when they were initially pulled over at a DUI checkpoint.

We don't know what Vince's BAC was when he was arrested ... cops say blood test results aren't back yet.

Ariana Grande Mac's DUI is Not My Fault ... I'm Not His Babysitter!!!

5/23/2018 10:01 AM PDT
Breaking News

Ariana Grande is lashing out at anyone who thinks Mac Miller's car wreck and DUI is somehow her fault because, as she puts it ... she's NOT his mother or his babysitter.

Ariana responded to one Twitter troll in particular ... saying she had cared for Mac and tried to support his sobriety for years, "But shaming/blaming women for a man's inability to keep his s**t together is a very major problem."

Mac has talked about his struggles with the bottle in the past, and Ariana says it was definitely an issue while they dated. She says, "Of course I didn't share about how hard or scary it was while it was happening but it was."

TMZ broke the story ... Mac smashed up his G-Wagon, and got busted for DUI ... one week after he and Ariana announced their split.

She says she'll continue praying for Mac to figure out his problems, but adds ... it's absurd to expect any woman to "stay in a toxic relationship" just because Mac wrote a song ("Cinderella") about her.
