Ty Lawson I'm Going to Rehab

7/17/2015 1:09 PM PDT
Breaking News

NBA star Ty Lawson says he's finally getting treatment -- entering a rehab center for the next 30 days ... after his 2nd DUI arrest this year. 

Lawson appeared in court in Denver moments ago for a hearing on his DUI arrest in Colorado back in January ... where a judge ordered him to be on monitored sobriety, instead of a SCRAM bracelet.

What that means is instead of having to wear an ankle bracelet 24/7 which constantly monitors the user's blood alcohol level, he'll have to routinely blow into a stationary B.A.C. monitoring device. 

During the hearing, Lawson's lawyer also announced that he will begin treatment at a rehab center in Southern California beginning tomorrow. 

TMZ Sports broke the story ... the Denver Nuggets star was arrested for DUI in L.A. earlier this week. He's due in court for that case in August.

Donovan McNabb DUI EXTREMELY DRUNK Cops Say More Than 2x Legal Limit

7/14/2015 9:35 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Donovan McNabb's DUI arrest just got extreme -- because cops say his blood alcohol level was more than TWICE the legal limit when he was arrested ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

As we previously reported, the former NFL superstar was popped in Arizona on June 28 after crashing into another car on the way home from a sports bar. 

McNabb INSISTED he had nothing to drink that night -- claiming he had just had some cough medicine to fight a cold

But the officials tell TMZ Sports .... the results from McNabb's blood test are in -- and he registered a .17 ... more than DOUBLE the legal limit, .08.

In fact, anything higher than a .15 in Arizona constitutes an "extreme DUI" -- which brings stiffer penalties if convicted ... especially since it's McNabb's 2nd DUI in Arizona in less than 2 years.

EXCLUSIVE

Donovan McNabb is stepping away from his NBC sports radio show -- at least temporarily -- to deal with "personal issues" in the wake of his DUI arrest ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

McNabb hosts a show called "Under Center" with Mark Malone ... a daily sports talk show on the NBC Sports Radio Network. 

But 2 weeks after Donovan's 2nd DUI arrest -- network officials tell us McNabb is taking a break. 

"Donovan McNabb is taking immediate leave to address some personal issues, and we support him in this decision," the network tells us. 

McNabb WAS on the show yesterday and addressed the arrest -- saying he was "handling the matter." Clearly, he's had a change of heart. 

As we previously reported, the former NFL star was arrested for DUI on June 28th in Arizona. It's the 2nd time he's been arrested for DUI in 18 months. 

Donovan McNabb QB Masked Boozy Breath with Cough Drops

7/8/2015 1:08 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Seems Donovan McNabb tried the ol' boozy breath cover up trick before his DUI -- 'cause cops say he had TWO cough drops in his mouth when they arrived to the crash scene. 

In the incident report, obtained by TMZ Sports, cops say McNabb had all of signs of a drunk person when they approached him after he smashed into another car in Arizona on June 28th -- plus one cop said, "I noticed a strong, fruity odor on his breath."

When the officer asked what the smell was, McNabb said he was fighting a cold and had taken Robitussin and was eating 2 cough drops. 

Cops asked McNabb to spit out the drops -- he did -- and suddenly, the arresting officer says he could definitely detect a "strong odor of alcohol coming from his breath."

According to the report, McNabb admitted he had been at a local sports bar before the incident -- and was just trying to get home. At one point, he asked if he could just walk back to his house, but insisted he was "good to drive."

Cops didn't believe him and arrested McNabb for DUI -- and things got worse. 

As McNabb was walking into the detention area at the police station, he tripped ... another sign he was drunk, cops say. 

McNabb didn't take a breathalyzer -- but submitted blood. The results were not included in the report. 

But the saddest part ... when the officer was asking D.M. if he understood the booking process, Donovan interrupted him and said, "I know what it means. I've been through this before."

EXCLUSIVE

Terrell Owens says he's genuinely worried about his ex-teammate Donovan McNabb -- saying he's lucky the QB didn't kill anyone in his recent DUI arrest and wants him to get help, ASAP. 

TMZ Sports spoke with T.O. who says the June 28th arrest should serve as a "wake up call" for the former Philadelphia Eagles star.

"DUI is a very serious thing. The number of lives that have been lost from it are staggering. It's a blessing no one was hurt."

Owens continued, "We may not still be playing, but we still serve as role models. You have to be more responsible."

"Next time, call Uber."

Adrien Broner Sentenced In 'Rich & Famous' DUI Case

7/7/2015 10:21 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

You won't see boxing superstar Adrien Broner flossin' around in his expensive cars anytime soon -- because his driver's license was JUST suspended as part of his sentence in his DUI case. 

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Broner was popped for drunk driving in Ohio back in January -- and during the arrest, bragged that he was rich, famous and made more than $100 MILLION in his boxing career. 

Now, we've learned ... Broner struck a deal with prosecutors in which he pled no contest to 1 count of misdemeanor reckless driving -- and was sentenced to 6 months probation, his license has been suspended for 6 months and he has to complete a driver's safety course. 

Broner was also sentenced to 30 days in jail ... but most likely won't do the time because that part of his sentence was "suspended" ... meaning it'll only be enforced if he screws up. 

So, don't screw up. 

Donovan McNabb Arrested for DUI In AZ ... Again

7/7/2015 9:48 AM PDT
Breaking News

Ex-NFL QB Donovan McNabb was popped for DUI in Arizona on June 28th ... the second time he's been arrested for DUI in 2 years. 

The Gilbert Police Department says McNabb rear-ended a car that was stopped at a red light around 11:35 PM -- and when cops arrived to the scene, they determined Donovan was drunk. 

The 38-year-old was subsequently arrested for DUI and transported to a nearby police station where he was booked, cited and eventually released. 

As we previously reported, McNabb was arrested in December 2013 after cops say he was speeding in Maricopa County around 3 AM.  He served 1 day in an AZ jail. 

As for what McNabb is facing ... we spoke with John Kelly, a DUI attorney in Arizona, who tells us Donovan is realistically looking at 9 to 10 days in jail if convicted of a normal DUI (the punishment could get a lot worse if his blood alcohol level was "extreme"). 

Kelly says it's also common for people convicted of a 2nd DUI to have a ignition interlock system put in their car, which requires a breathalyzer test before the user can turn on the vehicle. 

In addition, Kelly says McNabb will also face court fines in the $3,000 to $5,000 range.

Sam Shepard One Tequila, Two Tequila ... Busted for DUI

5/26/2015 1:53 PM PDT
Breaking News

Two shots of tequila is all Sam Shepard drank ... at least that's the story he unsuccessfully told cops before they cuffed him.

The "Bloodline" actor was popped Monday night in Santa Fe, New Mexico outside a restaurant. A security guard called police, saying he feared Shepard was way too drunk to drive.

Shepard tried in vain to drive away, thwarted by an emergency brake he failed to release. That was enough evidence for cops to pull him over, and administer field sobriety tests ... which he failed. Cops say he also refused to blow into the breathalyzer, and that upped the ante.  

He was arrested for aggravated DUI, and remains in custody. 

Shepard was arrested for DUI back in 2009.

Flavor Flav Arrested in the Mother of All Traffic Stops

5/21/2015 12:15 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Flavor Flav was arrested early Thursday morning in Las Vegas by highway patrol and got nailed for so many alleged crimes ... it might be easier to tell you what cops didn't pin on him.

Only sorta kidding, but here's what they booked him on:

-- DUI
-- Possession of marijuana
-- Open container
-- Speeding
-- Bogus registration
-- Driving with a suspended license

According to Nevada Highway Patrol, this all began when cops spotted Flav at 12:30 AM 2005 black BMW and going 73mph in a 45mph zone.

Flav was busted for speeding last year in NY on the way to his mother's funeral. When cops ran his license, they found it was suspended 16 times.

He swore to a judge he fixed the problem, but that doesn't appear to be the case.

'Longmire' Star Deputy Ferg Busted for DUI ... JUUUUUST Over the Limit

5/14/2015 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Adam Bartley -- the lovable, bumbling Deputy Ferguson on "Longmire" -- just got a taste of his own medicine ... a skosh too much to drink landed him in jail for DUI.

Bartley was pulled over April 26th in Santa Fe, NM after a cop saw him driving a '93 Dodge pickup sans seat belt.

The officer says he smelled alcohol on Bartley's breath, and the actor folded like a cheap suit admitting he had "a few drinks."

Bartley performed poorly on multiple field sobriety tests ... so claim the cops. The breathalyzer was a heartbreaker ... .09, just over the .08 legal limit.

Bartley was arrested and charged with DUI, careless driving, and no seat belt. 

"Longmire" originally aired on A&E. It got cancelled last year but it's since been picked up by Netflix.
