San Francisco 49ers
linebacker Aldon Smith is on the defensive again -- legally ... he's been busted  for DUI and pot possession.

Smith was popped after he crashed his pickup truck around 7 AM.  He wasn't hurt ... but the breathalyzer almost was.

The 49ers say they're on top of it.  San Francisco plays the Colts on Sunday ... Smith's status for the game is in doubt.

The All Pro linebacker works as a receiver off the field -- receiver of  legal charges.

- Arrested in Miami last year for DUI -- later reduced to reckless driving. 
- Stabbed during a party at his house in June 2012.
- Named in a lawsuit by a man who claims he was shot at Smith's house during a party.

Smith is currently being held on $5,250 bail.

Dina Lohan

No-Booze Birthday Bash

After DUI Arrest

Dina Lohan
temporarily learned her lesson after getting busted for DUI last week -- She celebrated her 51st birthday Sunday night with her kids  ... without guzzling a single drop of booze.

Dina, Lindsay, Cody, Ali (who's Vogue-ing out) and Michael Jr. went to ABC Kitchen in NYC, and we're told they ordered Diet Cokes, waters, Shirley Temples, and cherry sodas all night. (Dina ordered the DC.)

We're told the entire Lohan clan was in great spirits -- something they're familiar with -- and no one uttered a peep about the arrest.

As we reported, Dina was popped on Long Island Thursday after allegedly driving with a blood alcohol level of .20 (more than twice the legal limit). Happy Birthday!

Lots going on this week. George Zimmerman is a menace to his community -- so says the police chief. Dina Lohan ended up in the drunk tank. Selma Blair is out for blood after getting sacked from "Anger Management." So we gotta ask ...

Omar Gooding

'Wild & Crazy Kids' Host

Charged with DUI and Pot

EXCLUSIVE

Welcome to "Wild & Crazy Kids!" The show that goes anywhere and does ANYTHING to find kids having fun! Here's your host ... OMAR GOODING, who has just been criminally charged with DUI and weed possession after his arrest last month.

TMZ broke the story ... 36-year-old Gooding was busted for DUI early in the AM in L.A. on August 20th.

Law enforcement sources tell us, Gooding was pulled over for running a stop sign. After approaching Gooding's vehicle, we're told police believed the actor was under the influence of both alcohol and marijuana. We're told police also discovered weed on Gooding's person.

Gooding (who also starred in other 90s shows like "Hangin' with Mr. Cooper" and "Smart Guy") has since been hit with two charges stemming from the bust: 1) driving under the influence, 2) weed possession.

Technically, jail time is a possibility, but it probably won't happen. Gooding will most likely pay a fine and get probation.

He's due back in court later this month.

Lindsay Lohan

Shows Support for Mom

But None for Her Boobs

9/13/2013 3:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0913_lindsay_lohan_splash_article
Lindsay Lohan just arrived at her mom's house on Long Island -- this after Dina Lohan's arrest for an off-the-charts DWI -- and she was definitely lacking in the support department.

Lindsay showed up in a black Porsche with her sister, Ali and an unidentified guy -- flashing a ton of side-boob as she walked into the house.

Shortly after Linds showed up ... her old attorney Mark Heller walked out of Dina's pad, and announced he's representing her in the DWI.

Heller pointed out Dina is a first time DWI offender with no prior record (criminally, anyway) -- and as a result he felt she would be treated with "fairness." Translation: he's hoping for no jail time.

As we previously reported ... Dina was arrested Thursday night ... and cops say she had a BAC of 0.2 -- nearly 3 times the legal limit.

Dina's still laying low -- the only sign of her all day was in the doorway as she let a friend out. She looked ... hazy.

Lamar Odom

CHARGED WITH DUI

9/13/2013 12:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0825-lamar-tmz-odom
Lamar Odom has just been charged with 1 count of DUI ... TMZ has learned.

TMZ broke the story ... Lamar was arrested August 30 at 3:25 AM on the 101 Freeway after cops saw him driving too slow.  He flunked several field sobriety tests and was then cuffed and taken to jail, where he REFUSED to submit to a blood alcohol test.

The fact that he refused the blood alcohol test actually helped him ... in that normally a defendant would be charged with 2 counts of DUI -- driving under the influence and driving with .08 or higher. 

Here's the bad news -- By refusing to take the test ... Lamar will have his driver's license suspended for 1 year.

As we first reported, law enforcement sources told us they believed Lamar was under the influence of both drugs and alcohol.

If convicted ... the likely outcome would be probation and an alcohol ed course since he's a first-time offender.  These cases are almost always plea bargained.

Lamar will be arraigned on Sept. 27.

9:20 AM PT -- Our Lohan sources tell us, Lindsay was NOT the person who picked Dina up from the station -- in fact, we're told Lindsay didn't find out about the arrest until the story broke this morning.

gray-bar-update
Dina Lohan
was arrested for drunk driving in Long Island, NY last night ... and cops say her blood alcohol level was more than TWICE the legal limit.

Lindsay Lohan's 50-year-old mother was pulled over on the Northern State Parkway by New York State Police around 11 pm Thursday night ... after she was allegedly going 77mph in a 55 in her white BMW.

During the stop, cops say she appeared intoxicated -- and tested her blood alcohol level, which registered at .20 -- more than twice the legal limit of .08.

According to officials, "Lohan made an allegation that she was injured during the course of the arrest" ... but when medical personnel responded to the scene and determined she was fine, Dina "recanted her claim."

Lohan was hauled to a nearby station where she was booked on two counts of driving while intoxicated and one count of speeding.

After posing for a squinty-eyed mug shot, Lohan was released to a sober 3rd party. So far, no word on WHO picked up Lohan from the station.

Lohan is due back in court later this month.

Dina's been on a party tear this month -- TMZ obtained a photo of Lohan partying like a drunken sailor at a giant party over Labor Day weekend.

People at the party tell us she was a mess that night -- slurring her speech and zoning out.

Lamar Odom

I Don't Have a Crack Problem

9/10/2013 9:18 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE



Lamar Odom says he's absolutely NOT a drug addict ... doesn't need professional help ... and is confident he'll play in the NBA next season.

He's wrong on all 3 counts.

33-year-old Odom went to Teru Sushi in Studio City last night ... and after taking some photos with fans, he finally addressed the media about drug issues in his life ... claiming everything is hunky-dory.

Problem is ... Odom is clearly in denial. As we've previously reported, just about everyone in his life -- personally and professionally -- knows about his battle with substance abuse, including his wife Khloe Kardashian.

In the last year alone, Lamar's been thrown out of hotels ... busted for DUI ... spent time in rehab ... and dropped from multiple NBA teams.

Still, Lamar insists ... "Life is good."

'That's So Raven' Star

Sentenced to 180 Days in Jail

9/9/2013 12:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0906-orlando-brown-tmz
It just keeps getting worse ... "That's So Raven" star Orlando Brown is behind bars, 2 weeks into a 180-day sentence ... in one of the craziest, most drawn-out DUI cases we've ever seen.

Law enforcement sources tell us, Brown was remanded into custody on August 23 following a hearing ... where he failed to show proof he completed court-ordered alcohol ed classes for his 2011 DUI arrest.

The only good news for Brown is L.A. County jails are way overcrowded -- so, he's expected to be released after only 27 days ... on September 19.

Brown's been crazy lucky until now -- in the last year 4 bench warrants were issued for his arrest, after he repeatedly failed to follow various court orders.

Mel Gibson

Goes Off On Malibu Cops

'Why Are You Harassing Me?'

EXCLUSIVE

Mel Gibson
had an angry encounter with Malibu cops last Saturday -- the good news ... he was sober and left the Jews out of it.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... just after 1:00 AM Mel and a female passenger rolled up to a DUI checkpoint on Pacific Coast Highway -- the same road where Mel was famously busted for DUI in 2006 -- where he ranted against the Jews.

We're told deputies asked Mel if he had been drinking.  He said no and cops had no reason to suspect otherwise.

But there was a problem ... Cops asked Mel to produce his license, and Mel didn't have it on him. At that point deputies told Mel to go to a secondary screening spot, and that's when Gibson got angry.  We're told Mel yelled, "Why are you harassing me?"  Deputies asked why Mel was screaming and he responded, "I have had problems with you Lost Hills [Malibu] deputies in the past." 

Things cooled down when deputies let Mel off with a warning. 

Mel drove off and did not blame deputies or Jews for the whole Syrian thing.
